Top Five Bucket List Destinations

When you’ve visited Bora Bora, you get to wondering if that’s the bucket list completely done. I know there are other people who would put historical European castle tours and wonders of the world like the Egyptian pyramids at the top of their bucket list, but my perfect holidays include warm water, tropical islands, swimming […]

Native Foods Cafe – Newport Beach, California

It’s rare that the Nomads eat at a restaurant that has a wide range of choices for South Nomad. Usually it’s chips, or garden salad, or one menu item without the cheese, or eggs, or the dressing (or without the meat, in the worst cases). On the rare occasion we do visit a restaurant or […]
