I'm sitting the in the JFK Admiral’s Club reflecting on the events that have transpired over the past year, and what lies ahead over the next 4 weeks. At 10:25 pm tonight, I’ll fly down to Buenos Aires, and after ½ day on the ground, I’ll connect on over to Johannesburg and Cape Town, thus fulfilling long-held dream #1:
Crossing the South Atlantic from South America to Africa
After a few days of work in Cape Town with my partners, a terrific group of guys from the USA, Canada, and the UK will arrive on Saturday, May 9th to start the inaugural group trip of Savvy Navigator Gay Tours to South Africa. Over 10 days, we’ll visit the Cape Winelands, an authentic South African farm that harkens back (for better or worse) to the colonial times, Cape Town and its environs, and then on to the Sabi Sands Game Reserve’s Londolozi Tree Camp for the superlative safari experience. A few will continue on to Livingstone, Zambia to visit Victoria Falls.
Fulfillment of long-held dream #2:
Bringing life-changing travel experiences to my fellow gay men, in off-the-beaten-path locations that are favorites for me and Savvy Husband
This past week, Savvy Navigator has been written up in the New York Times Style Blog, as well as both the print and online editions of the Washington Post Travel Section. Savvy insiders have known and loved the Savvy Husband’s passion for ink, so this attainment of “ink in my own right,” is the fulfillment of long-held dream #3:
Defining, building and bringing to market a new brand that redefines gay travel and gay honeymoon
Lastly, spending the entire month of May 2009 on the road, working by leading the Savvy Navigator gay tour, and then later in the month on vacation in Argentina, celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary, with Savvy Husband and Savvy Friends, is truly the fulfillment of another long-held dream:
Living my passion for global travel, every day, experiencing new events at every turn, all while getting paid for it
Please join me this month while I Tweet, photograph, video, and write about my experiences in South America and Southern Africa.
