Eat Dollar Cactus Street Tacos in Mexico

Prior to my visit to La Bufadora in Mexico, the only street food I have ever partaken in was the must-have hot dog from a vendor on the streets of New York City, mostly because it had "Bucket List Opportunity" written all over it. 9 times out of 10 I will opt for a dining experience at a sit-down […]

Haggle at La Bufadora Market in Ensenada, Mexico

I am not good at haggling…unless I feel like I am getting ripped off. Then, I will spend hours negotiating a deal that the sales person didn't even think was possible. I am cheap. Or rather frugal. I just don't understand why people don't list the actual price of an item instead of chasing me down […]

Vacation with a Complete Stranger

I woke up the morning of the Karma Foundation Kandy Kruise filled half with giddy excitement and half with “crap what have I gotten myself into now.” Not only am I attending the ultimate Vegas/Playboy party where all the girls will be half my age and flaunting their cellulite-free bodies, but I am also vacationing […]

A Playboy Party was NEVER on my Bucket List, but…

An unexpected invitation to a "Playboy Party" Kandy Kruise (a cross between mansion party and Vegas nightclub on steroids) came my way from a fellow blogger, reader & bucket lister, Megsy Ellis. I had always wanted to meet an online acquaintance, especially one who is as obsessed as me with ticking items off her life list. Throw in a […]

Meet Furry Coati Animals in Costa Rica

I had many amazing adventures in Costa Rica; ziplining through the rain forest, relaxing in the famous Tabacon natural hot springs and, the most thrilling, dozens of furry Coati creatures attacking my granola bar.   We were leisurely riding in our rented 4WD, which is a must for the severely bumpy, non-paved roads, when we noticed a […]

Tour the Tulum Mayan Ruins in Mexico

I had severe anxiety trying to decide which Mayan Ruin I wanted to tour on my Western Caribbean vacation. Thought the Tulum Mayan Ruins in Mexico were a standout, both Belize and Mexico boast some of the most awe-striking. Do I make my choice based purely on beauty or vastness of the site or the rare opportunity […]

Walk the Suspension Bridge in Roatan, Honduras

There was only one thing standing, or should I say swaggering, between me and my monkeys in Honduras…a 237 foot long semi-stable, suspension bridge. No bridge, no monkeys…no way! We were at the Gumbalimba Park in Roatan, Honduras and I wanted to hold a monkey…bad. The tour guide led us around the lush grounds, diverting our attention […]
