Volunteer with Great Gorilla Project

Africa stirs up colorful emotions in me. Although its vibrancy has only lived in my imagination (through photographs I have seen, books I have read, and travelogues and stories I have heard from friends who have visited), I often visit this Africa of my imagination in my dreams at night.

Visit the Critically Endangered Northern White Rhinos in Kenya

Due to the devastating and ongoing poaching crisis in South African, the list of endangered species continues to grow. One of the most critically endangered species is the Northern White Rhinos, which are being brutally poached for their horn. These are prizes by biologists and locals as being the most social rhinoceros species and having a magnificent stature. Sadly, there are no longer none in the wild and the remaining six (six!!!!) are under the protection and care of Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya.

Homesteading on “ The Farm”

Having lived in Hawaii for the last 12 years, I have learned first-hand the value of living sustainably, including organic gardening and farming practices, and utilizing sheep and goats in permaculture practices. However, I would like to deepen my knowledge and practice of permaculture design, beekeeping, and learn about building sustainable housing structures using local materials. Therefore, for my next Christmas present, I am asking for paid tuition to the full-immersion residency program at “ The Farm” . Only $200 per week includes all food, lodging, classroom, and hands-on instruction.

Be one with nature and learn to survive!

I've done a good share of outdoors activities and I love the adventure, challenge and the serenity our Mother Nature provides. The more I get out, the more I want to stay out! And the more I do this, the more fascinated I become with safety and survival. The best part of being outdoors is experiencing the wilderness; being somewhere humans rarely go and see the nature and wildness people rarely get to see. But with this comes great risk. I am always conscious of this and I am always grateful when I am able to come home safely.

Make Wine like an Argentine!

I've loved the taste and complexity of wine for many years now and have a glass with dinners quite regularly. Although I've enjoyed a wide variety of wines in the US, when I tasted the wines of Argentina, it opened up a whole new world for me! The deep, rich, tannin-y flavor...I couldn't get enough!

Feel the passion of Mexican Cuisine with Chef Ana during Dia de Los Muertos

I really cannot eat enough Mexican cuisine. I love it! It's more than the food; it's the passion and love of the chef and culture that pours and seeps into the food. Each bite satiates the soul and brings a warm smile to my face. It's like it's saying to me, “Everything is going to be alright.” :)

Soul of the Desert at Marfa Film Festival

I love the Desert. Some people think it's crazy to choose the desert over green, lush landscapes, the mountains, or the ocean. But in order to really get the magic of the desert, you have to see beyond the bare landscape. And if you do, you see your soul reflection. It is a feeling, more than a view! I happen to also love People and Art. And  that is why I would love nothing more than to attend the next Marfa Film Festival, it's a paradise for enjoying all three of those!

Iceland Airwaves Music Festival

I have dreamed of going to Iceland for more than two decades. Being an avid live music/festival lover, I want to time my trip to attend the Airwaves music festival, and sightsee Iceland’s natural wonders when I’m not dancing to amazing music! Moreover, I’d like to take this trip with my fellow music lovers, Marilen and Melissa, who were my favorite side-kicks for live music shows when we all lived in Austin, Texas and attended the SXSW music festival.

Yellowstone and Tetons Multisport Family Tour

When planning ahead for a family vacation to celebrate my son’s sixth birthday, I knew I didn’t want the typical destination such as Disneyland. I also knew I didn’t want to stay at an all inclusive-resort where you sit by the pool and drink Mai-Tais all day. I wanted something rustic, adventurous, outdoorsy, yet appropriate for a very active child.

Camp Grounded (Digital Detox) Summer Camp for Adults

I never attended summer camp as a child. But as the saying goes, it’s never too late! I would love to attend the Camp Grounded summer camp for adults at Camp Navarro, located on 80 acres of redwood forest in Northern California. I can’t imagine a better place to “ground” than among the kings and queens of the forest (what I call redwood trees).

Qi Gong and Daoist Meditation Retreat

I have been practicing the ancient healing and moving art form of Qi Gong for about six years now. It has transformed my life physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I want to take my practice to a deeper level, and have heard wonderful things about the Complementary Medical Association’s (CMA) Health and Activity Retreats. In particular, I would like to attend CMA’s weeklong Qi Gong and Daoist Meditation retreat to celebrate my 43rd birthday.

Embodying the Sacred Feminine and Kundalini Dance Facilitator Retreat

Kundalini often refers to energy or consciousness depicted by a coiled serpent at the base of the spine (or root chakra) whose uncoiling and rising to the top of the spine and out through the head (or crown chakra) depicts this rising energy or consciousness as an “awakening” or enlightenment or bliss.

Amazonian Shamanic Healing Retreat

I have discovered that my purpose in this journey of life is to live joyously and harmoniously with all sentient beings; and to share this experience with others. I feel called to go deeper into the energetic realms that are often not part of our day-to-day lives. Plant medicine can help facilitate these kinds of connections, and can be a powerful cleansing and transformative tool.

Mae Hong Son Loop in Thailand via motorcycle!

I just obtained my motorcycle license! It has been a life long dream to take my 1978 Honda CB400TII Hawk on a touring trip. The freedom, the wing in my hair, the sound of the motor purring, everything I need fastened behind me. *sigh*

Northern Lights in Alaska!

A trip to Alaska has always been on my list but it always seemed so distant and foreign, probably because of its vast wilderness and sheer size of the land. One thing I've always wanted to see are the Northern Lights; just lay on the ground staring at the night sky and be in utter disbelief of what I was seeing. What a perfect combination of activities – going to a place that seems so distant and foreign to me and see something I've never laid my eyes on!

Soak in the beauty of BIG Sur

I am an absolute lover of Mother Nature. She soothes, hugs and humbles me and, without fail, takes me on a crazy ride each time and teaches me something new about myself. She reminds me how tiny I am in the presence of her vastness and that's a beautiful way to put things back into perspective.

Dancing the 5Rhythms

For as long as I can remember, dance has been an important part of my life. As a child I spent hours sifting through my parents’ huge record collections while dancing around the living room.

Stand Up Paddle Retreat with Paddle Diva

I have a handful of girlfriends from junior high that are still my very dear friends. Having known each other for nearly 3 decades, but now spread out around the globe, we want to plan a destination reunion. Since we all have families and jobs we can’t leave for extended periods of time, we need something short but sweet. And somewhere tropical, with plenty of outdoor activities that offer fun and exercise, as well as opportunities for kicking back and relaxing.

Wanderlust Festival Oahu

I have wanted to attend a Wanderlust festival since I first heard of Wanderlust four years ago. Being both an avid yogini and surfer, attending the Wanderlust Festival on Oahu, close to the famed 11-mile miracle north shore of surfing, is the perfect fit for me.

Scuba Diving in Silfra, Iceland

I went through the PADI certification program to get my scuba diving license so I can go to tropical places and dive. But then I met some travelers who were just in Iceland and dove next to glaciers! The photos they shared with me blew my mine. The visibility is crystal clear. No one out there but them. Sea creatures were incredibly unique. And the beautiful blue hue was exceptional.

3 day Rogue River White Water Rafting Wilderness Lodge Trip

I absolutely love white water rafting. Once I went on a class IV~V, one-day rafting trip down Rogue River with Pete from Momentum River Expeditions (MRE), I swore to myself I would never raft anything below a class IV again! It is such a rush and with a great leader, I was in good hands and did not feel unsafe once! Well, maybe a little scared at times ;)

Sunshine, wine, food in San Luis Obispo

San Luis Obispo is really a special place. It's a beautiful haven for the outdoorsy type – it's great for road cycling, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, swimming, running, surfing...but also provides a lot in the way of luxury, relaxation, art, wine and dining. The perfect balance ;) I want to venture down there and experience and enjoy the “SLO Life”. ;)

Discover Rural Chinese Lifestyle in Yunnan

I am not a big “city person” when I travel. I like being in rural areas and watch and learn the lifestyles of indigenous folks and how they have carried on their traditions and cultures through so many generations. I like to learn about their special connections with their lands and livestock that have provided them with so much serenity as well as food and resources to live.

One Year with the Thai Monks

I traveled throughout Thailand in my late 20s and since have been enthralled in their culture and traditions. One of which is that all Thai men attend a year of rigorous training and meditation in a Buddhist monastery of their choosing. Of course, this is a significant life and cultural experience and are prioritized for native men, but sometimes, they allow acceptance of international men.

Awesome Amsterdam and Biking Through the Netherlands

Windmills and wooden shoes are often the first things that come to mind when people think of the Netherlands (aka Holland); but I am particularly struck by the use of bicycles as a major form of transportation. Being such a small country, you can see a lot of the country by bike. I would love to do a bike tour of the North Sea coast and through some of the countryside, after spending some time in Amsterdam.
