View from our Dorado Beach Hotel terrace.

I ticked off another destination on my bucket list and, in retrospect, am finding it hard to determine which vacation I loved more: the South African Safari or a recent trip to the Galapagos Islands.

"Positano, like Capri is more of a way of life than a tourist destination.  La Marina Grande is the small main beach."

Aperitif on the beach at sunset, in Grand Cayman, is priceless

Weekend getaway, close by, Miami Beach. Just pack a bathing suit and go.

Rafting in the Rio Paquare, Costa Rica was an exhilirating, heart thumping experience
