2014 has been a roller-coaster year for me. I was listed as a top Travel Tweeter for 2015, one of the Sexiest Female Travelers Alive 2014 and I came home from Asia alone.

I joined and performed with one of 10-time world champion Cristian Oviedo’s salsa teams and was the host of an Orbitz special in Bermuda. I was lead teacher for Nickelodeon’s brand new show, “Bella and the Bulldogs.”

I signed to freelance with USA Today 10best as a Los Angeles Expert and have been writing for Wharton Business Magazine. One of my articles was the most popular post for 7 days and another one had a twitter reach of 4.1 million.

I met the British Ambassador, cooked with several top hotel chefs at the Beverly Hills Hotel and Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel, went to dinner at Dave Koz’s house and met his friends, Matt Goss and Eric Benet as well went to the amazing Gerald Albright show at Spaghettini Beverly Hills.

We Said Go Travel and Ken Budd recieved a Gold SATW award for Budd’s article, Kenya: Holding Elijah. This award is considered the Pulitzer prize of Travel Writing.

I had the sixth writing contest (Fall 2014 Gratitude Travel Writing Contest the entries are being published and winners will be announced in 2015.) And the Winter 2015 Inspiration Travel Writing Contest will open January 2, 2015! I hope you will share a story.
