Monterey’s Tasty Olive Bar with Yummy Roasted Buttersquash Seed oil!

Monterey's Tasty Olive Bar video tour

Monterey’s Tasty Olive Bar has 70 varieties of olive oils and balsamics that you can taste before you buy free! Many of the infused Olive oils are the same olive oil base with different flavorings. The olive oils come from two different hemispheres in Tunisia and Australia, and the balsamics are aged the traditional Solera Method from Modena Italy.  Each container tells you the mix of oil and acidity.  Although I’m not big of infused flavorings, the ones I tried are rich in flavor. I’m a straight olive oil gal. I like the kind that has a natural nutty flavor to it. My favorite Olive Oil is ‘Koronieki  olive oil’ extra virgin from Greece. They do not mix their oils with any other oils like big grocery store chains do.   Hold on, I’m not done… You may get dizzy with so many varieties.

Black TruffelPressed every week are there specialties oils; white and black truffle oil, sesame seed oil, roasted almond oil, seasonal pumpkin seed oil and my favorite for the day; buttersquash seed oil. Which has a really unique roasted taste to it. Now that I have it, what am I going to do with it? The owner said it’s great for roasting vegetables on a BBQ or adding to mash potatoes. They have a sleek 200 ml bottle that they will bottle your favorite on the spot for around 13 bucks. Specialty oils are more and other sizes are available.
As far as the balsamics I liked the ‘Cranberry-Pear White Balsamic Vinegar Condimento’ and the ‘Pomegranate-Quince White Balsamic’ was best.  They are open everyday at 10:00am to 8pm and will give you a free taste with bread and education about the oils.

There are demonstration 100’s of booths, food entertainment, cars for sale. It’s pretty inexpensive to go.

What!! Some of Alaska’s Inside Passage under 60 dollars! Not kidding. Travel and Adventure Show Video

What!! Some of Alaska’s Inside Passage under 60 dollars! Not kidding. Travel and Adventure Show Video

Alaska’s Inside Passage on a budget

Parts of Alaska’s Inside Passage under 60 dollars Alaska Marine Highway System on a budget

At the top of my Bucket List: Alaska. When I looked into it, there is just ridiculous prices to experience it. So I buy lottery tickets and hope for the best. Postcard Travelers is all about crafting your own experience to get the best out of life and travel. Looking for the postcard picture perfect experience, maximizing my budget. When I met Lorene Palmer of Alaska’s Inside Passage I told her ‘You are my new best friend!” And pulled over my colleagues at Comcast Chabot 27 to interview her. You must listen to what she says. [Video Link]

Craft your own experience.
9 hour ferry ride Juneau to Sitka $53.00 Craft your own experience. More info @ PostcardTravelers.com

You can go from some of the most insanely beautiful locations in the world… the Inside Passage for under $60.00. What!! That’s right. Like we have a public bus and BART system, Alaska has a waterway transit system ‘The Alaska Marine Highway System’ (AMHS). It only makes since for the local community to be able to get from one town to the next. Not like you can drive over a glacier to get home. Example Juneau to Sitka is a 9 hour ferry ride around $53.00! Woot, woot, woot!

You can thank me later. Come to find out my mom took this transit system when she went to Alaska and drove her camper on the boat a bit more than just going on the ride. There are cabins you can sleep in as well. My fantasy is to, of course, kayak around the glaciers. I never even thought bringing my own car or motorcycle was a possibility. So I am in fantasy heaven working out the details! In the meantime, here is the interview with Eddie Hazzard (Chabot 27) at the Travel & Adventure Show and link to http://www.alaskasinsidepassage.com/ please let us know about your experience if you happen to go before me. Tips please! XOXO

Insider Video Empty Streets Haiti’s Gas crisis

Insider Video at the near empty streets of Haiti’s Gas crisis. This is what it looks today by the people who actually live there, and how gas effects a community.  My brother is in Haiti 3 years now and lives where the video was taken.

In case the video is not showing here’s a link to it…
“A street view of Port-au-Prince during the gas strike on Monday, February 9, 2015. New rounds of transportations strikes have cripples Port-au-Prince yet again. People are protesting gas prices which are high despite despite low gas prices on the international market. This new round of strikes has been announced to show dissatisfaction with the Haitian government’s 20 Gourde decrease announced last week after the initial gas strikes. This time, I’ve decided to go out into the streets to take a look at how things were going.”
Map of area the video was taken.
This is how the news covers the crisis…

In the meantime. My brother has helped many people start their own business. If you go to the area support Minouche’s Cafe Bar / Resto.  All the charm of La Ganave. Haitian Women Owned & Operated. Of course the businesses on the Island should be effected with the crisis too. But they don’t have a lot of transportation there anyway.

Utah Adventure 2014 Clinging to To Life

greatestutahadventure
My Greatest Utah Adventure. I LOVE Red Rocks!

 

Our first stop on this road trip was Zion National Park, in the end was also one of my favorites! I wanted to dwarf all my friends adventure experiences in life, including her jumping out of a airplane. So I found a very cool and dangerous hike to Angels Landing, starting from the Grotto Bus Stop. Apparently I succeeded.

TIP: Here is the trail map. I recommend getting a earlier start. Bring plenty of water, a head light (sun goes down much sooner in the mountains, night clothing) tp, walkie-talkies, hiking/climbing boots, climbing gloves. Give your self extra time, these are steep climbs.  Also check for Park alerts like flash flooding, etc. If your afraid of heights, well a 1,400 foot drop on both sides of you will leave you breathless. Check to see the last bus leaving. There is a fee to get in the park, during seasonal hours only buses are allowed in and are free. I did get a tip they don’t like to advertise that the Ranger dose a last sweep through the park on the road for people like us who miss calculated everything. There are no cabs or cell phone receptions. Below you may find my videos a little entertaining about my experience clinging to life and walk back in the dark. Ps, 9 people have die on this hike.

Another tip: I would take the bus to the end to see the over all park, then back to the Grotto, it’s free with your entry fee and there is a tour guide talking about the history. The bast part is when you take photos you don’t have a boat load of cars in the photo and it just better all the way around.

Ps I won the beer. Even though she insisted it was for ‘who got to the top’, not ‘back to the bus stop’. One way or another I shared it cuz that’s how I roll. More to come!
