I need to live on a beach. // Santa Teresa, Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica
I'm pretty sure this is paradise... at least my version of it! Sand, salt, waves, pelicans, hermit crabs. A beautiful breakfast at an amazing bakery/cafe. Playing for hours with Harper in the tide pools at low tide. And watching the sun set every evening on the beach. Love love love.
Comment below: what are other beach towns I need to visit??

THE WALL BY DRONE
About a year ago, I got permission from US Border Patrol to travel the length of the US-Mexico border from San Diego to the New Mexico border in my car, flying my drone and filming. I secretly think they might have been using me to test new technology to identify drones! Anyway, I filmed and flew and got to know many fine Border Patrol agents. This simplistic demand for a WALL by our current President shows a fundamental ignorance. There already is a wall, for hundreds of miles. There are also open spots and vulnerable spots which could use some patching up. It's time to stop making partisan generalizations and just seeing how things could get done if we all can just get along. Right, Rodney?
NM True TV Palace of the Governors
Well before the Mayflower set sail for the east cost with its pilgrims the Palace of the Governors was already in place on the Santa Fe Plaza. It has served as the seat of the Spanish government in the Southwest, and is the oldest continuously inhabited building in what is now the United States. Fittingly it is now part of the New Mexico History Museum, where the building itself joins the exhibits inside as a huge draw for visitors.

Beautiful Merida: Harper and I Visit the City We Almost Moved to...
Before we decided to head to San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato, Jesse and I thought we'd move to Merida. The city has a good-sized expat population and people love it there. The one thing that tipped the scales in favor of Central Mexico was the weather... but it's winter now, and I decided I could use a little Yucatan sunshine, so Harper and I flew across the country for our first visit to the peninsula.
