“G-Bird” drone soars over Oaxaca, Mexico

Oaxaca (wa-hah-ka) – my favorite word to pronounce in Mexico. It is also among my favorite destinations to visit in Mexico too. I was there recently during the week of Thanksgiving, and my birthday, for a little “holiday” I guess you can say (though we like to call it “vacation” in America). So I was, effectively, there on both “holiday” and “vacation” at the same time, which should appease any linguistic disparity between the British and American English terminologists out there. While R&R (rest and relaxation…often complimented with rum and revelry) was the focus, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to log some sky miles with the drone over what has to be among the most unspoiled slices of pristine coastline that Mexico can proudly claim on its colorful map. Here’s a few “holiday” snippets from the G-Bird… (*click HD*)

Hey what’s up amigos míos! Had some fun in the sun recently at the U.S. Surf Open in Huntington Beach, California, where I met up with my friends from the Mexico Tourism Board and the state of Baja California Sur! This great Mexico destination has been hot on my radar for years, and now it’s finally becoming a reality, so please stay tuned!

Midas Resort – BELIZE!

Some resort destinations just have that perfect touch.  I had the pleasure to experience this recently, as I filmed a promo piece for Midas Resort, located in Belize’s fascinating jungle interior in the town of San Ignacio. Any trip to Belize MUST include a journey into the Cayo District, which is the country’s most prominent nature, eco-adventure and Mayan history region. The exploration opportunities here are endless…just like the tropical serenade of the native green parrots who frequent the resort grounds. Next time you’re in Belize, be sure to pack some nature-trekking gear along with your swimsuit, crack an ice-cold Belikin and come see what the “Midas Touch” is all about!   www.midasbelize.com

The Cook Islands…where paradise finds you!

Kia Orana! I’ve just returned from a week in the incomparable Cook Islands. My mind is still processing the visuals and sensory of it all. Once I can reactivate my island-induced narcotic pulse to a bpm high enough to type for more than a few minutes, you will hear (and see) all about this magical, magical place…

UnBELIZEable! Snorkeling at the Belize Barrier Reef!

Ok, so a few weeks ago I finally had a chance to put my new underwater GoPro to the test…and what a first test it was!! You won’t Belize (I mean believe) what was waiting for me on my VERY first jump into the water at the Belize Barrier Reef. I’m talking ZERO training (unless you count the filming I did in my fish tank) and being “thrown” into one of the world’s largest natural aquariums with some flippers, a GoPro on a stick and a leaky snorkeling mask. Here’s how it all went down… #YouBettaBelizeIt!!

Lucha Libre training in Oaxaca, Mexico!

You know how when you go to some places, people like to tell you “don’t drink the water”? Well nobody ever advised me not to drink the mescal with scorpions floating at the bottom. So I did. On a recent trip to Oaxaca, Mexico – along with my tag team partner “El Gran Queso” – the Gringo With A Green Bag had a no-holds-barred experience in the excitingly cultured city of Oaxaca! Once the mask comes out, it’s game ON! Check out how it all went down right here…

You Betta Belize It!!

Hey amigos, happy Spring to all my fellow Northern Hemisphere dwellers! It’s my favorite time of year, no doubt about it (post-“tax season”, of course). Baseball, great weather, extended sunshine, morning serenade out my window by the local yellow-breasted goldfinch. I believe it’s also the best time to travel in most places around the globe, at least my favorite time anyway. So, that brings me to my newest vlog series (video + blog)…and this one is a nice lil’ warm up for my upcoming trip to BELIZE. I’ll be taking my new GoPro Hero 4 Silver to the Belize Barrier Reef, and then into the jungle, in a few short weeks, so I though I’d give it a little test run…a rather “advanced” test run, if you ask me! 🙂

Enjoy! #GWAGBelize
