In August I was invited by Napa Food and Vine to spend a week with them. We’ve known each other for over decade (I’m dating myself here) and worked together previously on different projects. Never wine or food though. Honestly when she told me that she was blogging about wine and food I thought she was a tad on the “nuts” spectrum. That said I’ve … Continue reading 6 days in San Francisco and Napa – A glimpse in to the life of a Wineblogger

You know those beautiful mountains between Phoenix aka the desert, that white stuff on … Continue reading Heading to San Fransisco!
Hearing the flaps come up, feeling the wheels touch down once more upon solid ground, looking through the window and seeing the terminals at Newark International planted the purest mass of goose bumps all over my skin. Holy Macaroni with cheese I was in America. My awe was not in awesome wonder to be in this world power but rather in shock, a moment I … Continue reading An Official Alien ~ 2 April 2009
