My husband, JV, and I love our life in San Diego. We live half a block from the ocean in the funky community of Ocean Beach, with our dog Chico and our 3 cats. Despite living in paradise, we love exploring the rest of this amazing planet. Some of our passions are scuba diving, swimming, running, yoga, cycling and enjoying great food and wine. When we travel, we like to settle in to one place for a minimum of a few days, if not a week or more, to really get the feel for the neighborhood or city. Finding a fabulous cafe to drink coffee each morning, or finding a beautiful running route, is as important as visiting the museums or famous landmarks (if not more important). Some of our favorite vacations have been to Portugal, Fiji, Roatan, Ecuador and Cambodia. Places that we hope to visit are Turkey, Italy, New Zealand....and wherever the next opportunity presents itself.
