Traveling around the Costa Rica the term “Pura Vida” is thrown around with the frequency of a broken record but the discover of its meaning escalates with every minute. The moment I passed thru gates of the Palms Residence Club I knew I reached the pinnacle of Pura Vida. The Palms Residence Club, located in the Guanacaste region is one of those places you surrender your passport to the staff and hope they never tell you to leave.
Today I woke up and the air was different today. I got up early and had a delicious breakfast literally on the Atlantic Ocean. During my delicious buffet style breakfast I sat and reflected on the road trip ahead of me today. We are about to escape the cape with a road trip to Cape Point.
My time in the bush came to an end but the adventure continued. We flew Federal Air back to Johannesburg and connect to the most beautiful city I’ve visited, Cape Town. The bush was a great experience but I was excited to finally make it to the mother city. I’m a Pisces and I carry a natural affinity to cities that touch a body of water.
I’m truly excited to share my South Africa safari webisode with you. Since I was a child I dreamed of going on safari and seeing wildlife in its natural habitat. This experience was truly a dream come true! I spotted the big 5 game: African elephant, rhino, cape buffalo, leopard and lion.
Over the course of four game drives I was able to see the big five in one day and the rest of the wildlife in Kruger Park. During our game drives I spotted zebras, impalas, wildebeests, giraffes, hippos, wart hogs, baboons, spiders, crocodile, tortoise and beautiful flora.
The big five is a term coined by hunters because the African Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Rhino, Leopard and Lion were the most difficult animals in Africa to hunt on foot.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see a wild animal devour his prey in person? Well, I wondered how the experience would be and I’m excited to share my encounter with a leopard nicknamed Mangela who tore off the head of a baby waterbuck for dinner.
Check out my visit to Harley Davidson in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to participate in their Black History Month presentation to Iron Elite. Harley Davidson created the Iron Elite website to document and preserve the history and heritage of African-American riding culture. Icons custom chopper creator Suga Bear was in attendance and members from different bike clubs like the Buffalo Solider. I also visited House of Harley Davidson, one of the worlds largest dealers and received a entertaining introduction the retail side of Harley Davidson. Check out the webisode and enjoy the show!
Growing up Harley Davidson seemed like a brand that was out of reach for what I created in my own mind. My perspective about Harley Davidson has done a complete 180-degree turn after spending time at House of Harley. Harley Davidson represents America, an American brand with a history that I soon found myself wanting to join.
Singita Lebombo is called a lodge but I would say it is an experience. Do you remember the show fantasy island with Tatto and Mr. Roarke where visitors could have any fantasy fulfilled? Singita is similar to fantasy island but in living color. From the moment we landed and were greeted at the airstrip to arriving in the main lodge I knew this was a special place.
