Gulf Coast Travel Blogger Making Waves In The Coastal Bend & Beyond

I’m a corporate marketer-turned-web designer with deep Texas roots, forever in pursuit of freedom & adventure. As a traveler, I love being a part of a close-knit community of fellow trailblazers. It’s these people who understand best the importance of continuously exploring the world in order to expand our minds.

That’s why I created the Coastal Bend & Beyond: a digital postcard of special places around the world and a creative space to share the rediscovery of my hometown, Corpus Christi, Texas.

If you’ve been dreaming of visiting the Middle East too, look no further. I compiled the logistics from our trip in one post for your convenience. Ingrid and I traveled to both Israel and Jordan, crossing their border by land and renting a car to explore the area on our own home-made itinerary.

Into the Wild – A Safari Story

Into the Wild – A Safari Story

My first safari experience was the single most amazing adventure I had in Africa. When everything seemed to be moving a million miles per hour, going on safari was a moment frozen in time. I was finally able to appreciate the fact that I was living in Africa and working on my start-up with a group of amazing people.

In this weeks blog post, I’ll be taking you into the wild and sharing my safari story with you. My friends and I successfully survived a 2-Day, 1-night African safari at Chobe National Park in Botswana, complete with camping (yes… I said camping!) in the wild.
