Tomorrow, I’ll be leaving on another South Africa vacation with another group of Fox World Travel intrepid travelers. It was exactly one year ago that I was there, and the anticipation and excitement of showing this beautiful country to more of the “Fox Faithful” is building (maybe this will inspire me to start packing). Much of the itinerary is the same, but we are doing something a little different at Victoria Falls. Last year the group stayed at the famous Victoria Falls Hotel, and while it was wonderful, I asked African Travel, the tour operator that helped us craft this customized itinerary, if there was another option that might offer another wildlife experience and they suggested The Elephant Camp. I checked it out online and said YES, this is exactly what I was looking for.

Imagine waking up in the morning to the sun peering in your window and hearing the roosters crowing in the morning; The view outside your window is the Adriatic Sea in the distance. That is how my day started every day in the Lovorno Villa – called “Agriturizm Kameni Dvori.”

It’s 3:15 a.m. and my cell phone alarm clock goes off.
At first, I think it must be a mistake, this is ridiculous. Then I remember, today is the day—I am visiting Machu Picchu.
I hurriedly brush my teeth and start putting on the layers of clothing I laid out the night before. It’s fall in Peru in an El Niño year, and, if all my travel experience has taught me anything, it’s anything can and will happen when it comes to the weather. The morning will likely be bone-chillingly cold and the afternoon could be hot, humid and sunny. So far, my time in Peru has been dreary and wet, so I don’t get my hopes up, but I am prepared for anything.

I started Three Cellars in October 2006 with my son-in-law, Shawn, to provide customers with excellent customer service and knowledge when purchasing fine wines and craft beers. We have grown over the years to offer wine schools and off-site tastings.
My background is in wine. I enjoy helping customers pick the perfect wine to pair with a meal or teaching customers how to cook with wine. My wife, Norma, and I taste all the wines we bring into the store so we can provide first-hand knowledge, including growing area information. I also personally train the staff on the wines we sell.
