Top 10 Favorite Travel Photos from 2013 – #2

10 countries and countless cities made it on my 2013 Bucket List. France, Dominican Republic, Bermuda, Jordan, Aruba, Curacao, Canada, USA, Mexico, and Fiji were all part of my whirlwind of adventures and new experiences. I never envisioned such an amazing year of opportunity; my life continues to be a dream come true. I am blessed. Some people create a bucket list because they are dying; I created one because I want to live.

Here are my top ten favorite travel photos from 2013.

Number 2 – Bermuda

Bermuda Travel

When you envision Paradise, what images enter your mind? Do you picture snow-capped mountains? Maybe an endless field of flowers? Or cotton-candy colored skies? My version of Paradise has always been the perfect beach. I remember looking at a poster in university of bridge over water and I was so draw to it, that I needed to buy it. I must have stared at that poster for more than 100 hours, imagining my life in those waters. While in Bermuda, as if from a dream, the poster appeared before my eyes… yet it was real. It was as if everything I’d dreamed about in the picture materialized right in front of me while driving on the highway in Bermuda near St. George’s.

This photo represents the accumulation of all of my dreams come true. It’s no longer a dream-like poster, rather a photo that I shot while on a press trip in Bermuda.

Do you think if you dream it and imagine it, you attract it into your life?

My Kind of Tour: Gosling’s Rum

An essential ingredient in Bermuda fish chowder, the island flavor of the Bermuda Rum Gosling's, BermudaSwizzle, and key to Bermuda’s Dark ‘n Stormy, Gosling’s Rum is Bermuda’s largest export. Known around the world, especially to this Cape Bretoner, is Gosling’s Bermuda Rum so when I heard that we were going on a tour of Gosling’s distillery, my first questions was, “is it a tasting tour?” Thankfully, it was!

Discovering Bermuda: Top 3 Family Activities – Number 1

I could live in the ocean if I could only breathe under water. I love everything about it… the Fairmont Beach Club in Southamptonsounds, the smells, the sights, nothing is more relaxing or refreshing. I grew up next to the ocean so it brings me back to my childhood and elicits some of the fondest memories of my life. Any location that offers great beach destinations automatically draws me so Bermuda was always high on my list of places to visit. With azure blue waters and bold, colorful fish, the snorkeling in Bermuda is some of the best in the world, making it my favorite family activity in the country.  Continue reading

Discovering Bermuda: Top 3 Family Activities – Number 3

The Crystal Caves are among Bermuda’s top visitor attractions and are number 3 on myCrystal Caves, Bermuda list of family activities to explore in Bermuda. Mesmerizing pools of crystal clear water, incredible formations of every size and shape imaginable, and clustered, crystallized ceilings make the caves uniquely beautiful with every visit.

The moment I descended down the walkway into Crystal Cave, about 36 meters (120 feet) below the ground level, I knew I was experiencing natural beauty at its best. Pathways of floating pontoons spread out before me, spanning the crystal clear water. Breath-taking formations appeared 40 feet below the surface, yet they were as clear as if they were mere inches away. Above, pristine white stalactites covered with crystallized soda straws were hanging from the roof of the cave. It was both fascinating and beautiful, a real treat for all ages. Continue reading

The Law of Attraction

When you envision Paradise, what images enter your mind? Do you picture snow-capped mountains? Maybe an endless field of flowers? Or cotton-candy colored skies? My version of Paradise has always been the perfect beach. I remember looking at a poster in university of bridge over water and I was so draw to it, that I needed to buy it. I must have stared at that poster for more than 100 hours, imagining my life in those waters. Today, as if from a dream, the poster appeared before my eyes… yet it was real. It was as if everything I’d dreamed about in the picture materialized right in front of me while driving on the highway in Bermuda near St. George’s.

Bermuda I’m considering adding this photo to my business cards or making it my logo. It reflects and represents the accumulation of all of my dreams come true. It’s no longer a dream-like poster, rather a photo that I shot while on a press trip in Bermuda.
