Just as things cool down in Australia, they’re hotting up in the USA and Mexico. I am off on another Gourmet Getaway at the moment. I will be writing a “Winter Sun” feature series on West Coast USA and Mexico. The holiday series will feature family friendly holiday ideas. With me I have the most gorgeous Hedgren travel bag.

The bag was supplied courtesy of the Belgium Designer Hedgren The good news is the range is available in Australia AND I have been asked to host a Hedgren Travel Bag Giveaway!

About Alesah Villalon

I used to chase life as one would chase targets in their calendar years. Until someone came to say, "Do more of the things that you love, and share that love with others!" Now I'm slowing down a bit.

I try to write. I try to shoot beautiful images of places I love. I try to share wholeheartedly the things that I enjoy.

I hope you can share with me all the pleasures that life has to offer through my stories.
