Since my last post, I have written and rewritten this newsletter ready to hit the send button only to realize events have changed, whether it be COVID19 or the protests, and being speechless, sad, and awakened.
Today is Flag Day, June 14th. Growing up as a child in a military family, we celebrate everything about the Flag and what it stands. I do so today - we live in a country where we can protest, speak our opinion, and question the status quo. As I celebrate I am also sad that racism still exists in this country. I ask what can I do, I am just one person? But I can listen, learn, and positively change every interaction, one at a time.
Can you point to the country of Zambia on a map? Perhaps not. Unless you’re a safari buff or someone who has a burning desire to know the name and location of every country on earth, it’s highly likely that Zambia doesn’t cross your mind often.

When I’m on my own and when I’m traveling with a group, some of my favorite parts of the entire experience are getting to sample new foods and taste familiar ones assembled in new ways. And really, who doesn’t love indulging in the experience of food? I plan whole trips around that idea! In preparation for my trip to Ireland with Brendan Vacations, I’ve been doing a little research on the famed full Irish breakfast (AKA “Ulster fry” in Northern Ireland), and I’m here to share my insights.
There are plenty of wonderful service providers in the travel industry, but there are also ones that don’t live up to the hype. My job as a travel advisor is to connect clients with the best of the best, and I can confidently say that Hills of Africa meets that standard. If you have dreamed of having an African safari experience, Hills of Africa is the way to go.
It seems like all of us have picked up a new hobby or have gotten back into something we simply didn’t have time for before. Some people are focusing on fitness, getting into home workouts or back into their running groove. Others are dabbling in the fine arts, while still others are using this time to hone and flex their culinary skills. If you fall into the latter category, try your hand at the following five authentic Bahamian dishes.
