Cheers! My Birthday Celebration with the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours

After losing my grandmother a few weeks before my birthday, I really needed to celebrate life. I know she would want me to do that. This year, I decided to ring in a new year of life in wine country. My soror traveled up from So Cal to visit. This would be her first time in Napa. I didn’t want to drive so instead, we bought bus tickets for the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours.

Let me tell you something, going on this bus tour was one of the BEST decisions I made. The Napa Valley Wine Country Tours bus isn’t just any bus. It’s a limo bus that looks like a VIP club lounge on wheels. We paid $119 for an 8-hour trip, visit to 4 wineries in Sonoma and Napa counties, continental breakfast and lunch. It was worth every penny. The tastings aren't covered in the bus fare, but they ran about $10-$25. Wineries won't charge you for tastings if you buy a bottle. I recommend this for tourists and any Bay Area locals who have folks visiting from out of town and want a short excursion to Nap…

Need A Break Like I Do?


Memorial Day weekend is almost here and I know it's going to be jumping in Miami. The picture to the left is from a trip I took to South Beach last year. I'm looking forward to my 3-day weekend here in LA. But between the job hunt, freelancing (hustling), bills, earthquakes and Gilles Marini getting robbed on Dancing with the Stars (don't worry Gilles you're still #1 in my book)--I need to get far away from here for a while. Since I can't leave town right now, I'll have to let Kindred take me there mentally.

"...just jump in a taxi cab, pack my bags and get away fast...." Won't you come with?
