A few weeks ago I wrote about my friend and fellow travel blogger Maria Alexandra of latinAbroad.com and her quest to become the Chief World Explorer in the Jaunt Around the World contest by Jauntaroo.
Guess what?! Out of the 3000 applications, she is one of 50 semi-finalists. Thank you to everyone who voted after seeing her initial video and my post. 🙂
Watch Maria as she gives a thorough tour of Luquillo, a tropical beach town and the Sun Capital of the World, in her native Puerto Rico.
Click on the RED LIKE button on her official semi-finalist entry page to show your support and help her to continue living out her dreams. They will be selecting five finalists next.
Continued success Maria!
You can also find her on Twitter and Facebook.

The first early morning aboard the Celebrity Solstice on an Alaskan cruise I decided to go outside and do some walking and running. Hanging out in the cold, windy air in shorts and holding up my new Samsung Galaxy S4, I captured a lap walking up-top on Deck 14. It didn’t matter what the weather conditions were, just being out on the open sea, I was on cloud nine.
Darn wind haha! 🙂
When looking at the pool and whirlpools around 1:00, just beyond you can see the pool bar attendant wiping down the bar, getting ready for another day. There is a good shot off to the east of the blue Pacific Ocean and sky right after that. I didn’t realize it at the time but we were actually moving along the coast of British Columbia which is out there beyond the boat railing somewhere.
Going through my New Zealand photos I found this snippet of video from out on the open road on the South Island.
No other vehicles to be found on this stretch of New Zealand State Highway 73 just south of the skiing areas of Porter Heights and Craigieburn. The road in its entirety connects Christchurch to the east, with Greymouth of the West Coast. It was during the summer, not to far from sunset, with beautiful blue skies overhead.
