Happy Summer, Wanderluster!

I know summer is here because watermelon (my very favorite food) is in abundance. This and Beth-Watermelonsunshine make me very happy! Hopefully you’ve got some fun summertime plans?

I do! I’m in the thick of our culinary tours. I’ve just finished up New Orleans, am in the middle of Santa Fe and Seattle is coming up at the end of the month. If you’re interested in joining us for our 2016 culinary tours, let me know now so I can put you on our waiting list as these usually fill up quickly.

Next week I’ll be heading off to London for some stories (and video) for the Expedia Viewfinder blog. Then it’s home for awhile to enjoy a Seattle summer (and more watermelon!).

Elephant FeetIn tour news… There are only 3 spots left on our inaugural co-ed Tanzania safari. Interested? Register today or you’ll miss out.

Don’t forget to stay updated on my whereabouts and experiences by friending me on Facebook and Liking our WaL and WanderTours Facebook pages.

On the Bookshelf
Blender Girl SmoothiesBlender Girl Smoothies
OK – in an effort to keep (or get) you healthy this summer, I’m departing from something travel-ish and HIGHLY recommending this amazing book of smoothies from the Blender Girl (go check out her website). There are lots of recipes here to suit many needs including those with high protein, for detoxing and just to get energized. Since purchasing a heavy-duty blender late last year, we are smoothie heaven in our house and feel great because of it.

Love this GiantLove this Giant by David Byrne and St. Vincent
I love music. But I admit I’ve fallen into the habit of streaming it. This means I rarely listen to one artist’s work all at once. Instead, I listen to streaming radio or compilations that I’ve put together (mostly for running). Listening to this collaboration from David Byrne and St. Vincent (also known as Annie Clark) reminded me of how much I enjoy listening to a complete album. Their music is ethereal and wonderful and definitely one of the most interesting collaborations from Western artists I’ve heard in a long time.Love this Giant

The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Grand Budapest Hotel
This is such a sweet documentary. It chronicles the life of Nicky Vreeland, son of Vogue editor, Diana Vreeland, from being born into a life of privilege to his life as a monk. Not unlike Buddha, he chose an ascetic path despite coming from a family of wealth. As a photographer, he’s documented his path to his present life as Rato Khen Rinpoche, Abbot of Rato Dratsang Monastery in The Grand Budapest HotelIndia.

KEEN City of Palm SandalsWanderGear Review
KEEN City of Palm Sandals
One of the best things about the clamshell styling on the Timbuk2 Copilot bag is that it forces me to be a bit more organized about how I pack. Knowing I can keep workout and casual clothes on one side and dress clothes on the other actually helps me think through the packing process a bit more… Read more here…
