The Little Ongava / Private Game Preserve in Namibia

You’ve seen The Manor which was a Public Game Preserve.  This time we chose The Little Ongava in Namibia.  The difference is HUGE insofar as seeing the animals and really getting an idea of where the animals live.  We used a small private plane to move from Tanzania to Namibia.   Designed for privacy, luxury and…

THE NGORONGORO CRATER

From The Manor we took a private Range Rover (enclosed version) to the crater.  The jungle road on the way into the crater looked like one of our horror movies.  Everything was shrouded in fog.  Sort of Freddie Krueger meets Lion King. We drove through the small  village prior to getting on the road to…

THE MANOR at NGORONGORO

One of the most surprising things about arriving in Africa is how expansive the continent is……..it seems endless as you fly or drive from one spot to another.  The surprise of it never goes away.  Each time you go you are hit with horizon after horizon full of small villages, stunning colored sands and cultures…

AGING IS INEVITABLE…..HACKS TO DOING IT WELL

STAYING FIT:   IT’S AN ATTITUDE In a performance-driven society that is in constant search of eternal youth, some people may find it difficult to realize that time has taken a toll on their body (hand raising here….in denial). A changing figure, the appearance of wrinkles, fading hair color, etc. Beyond these physical signs indicating that…

ARE INSPIRATION BOARDS A THING? MAKE ONE

I must admit, until this year I had NEVER been tempted to build one of these boards.  Sure, I’d pretty  much always compiled lists of goals and targets for my business and life….that seemed pretty normal, right?  Once I began to take notice of this practice, I was intrigued.  It wasn’t until a friend of…

EVER BRAIN DUMP?

I hear you.  I can relate more than you think!  You’ve got 70,553 things you KNOW you need to be handling – some personal, some you’ve been avoiding for months (maybe even decades?!) and then there’s the list for work too. Right?! There’s stuff you’ve GOT to do RIGHT NOW and then there’s also the…

THE ALL-GIRL TRIP

Okay, I think if we are honest, getting together with a “bestie” or a group of gal pals is the BEST medicine for EVERYTHING.  Not to say that the boys don’t offer great counsel or company….but, pour some wine or martinis and get women around a table…..I think we could solve all of the ills…

THE INNER CIRCLE…

I’ve been blogging and doing video posts and Podcasts (iTunes) for a little while now and I am aware (even more) of how critical women are of the way they look, and it makes me sweat: “I have my Mother’s hands, my neck is pleated, my butt is headed South.” Reality is, it is “coma…
