The Awful Time I Met Grumpy Cat!

Grump Cat NO OMG Pose

I met the real Grumpy Cat in Las Vegas and it was just awful. When I asked her to do my signature #OMGPose, she said… #NO! (I was sad, even Elton John and Mel B said yes. hehe). This internet sensation was in Las Vegas for the first time to meet fans, Im not so sure she cared to greet anyone. And to promote the new book The Grumpy Guide to Life: observations from Grumpy Cat. Even with the grumpy looks and attitude, it’s hard not to love her.

The Naked Truth about Grump Cat:

Real name: Tadar Sauce

Age: 2 years old

Home: Arizona, if she’s ever stopped and asked for her vet paperwork, she says, NO! I’m legal, leave me alone.

Boy or Girl? Many people refer to Grumpy Cat as a boy.. that is incorrect, Tadar is a girl. If you say “Oh, he’s so cute.” She’ll glare ate you and simply say #NO!

Photo ops: Meet the grumpiest cat in the World on her current book tour to promote The Grumpy Guide to Life.

I want to say a special thank you to Grumpy Cat for responding to my tweet and letting me get a special pre meet and greet photo op for my blog. I know on the inside you were doing the #OMGPose with me. :)

Till next time remember to live life NAKED!

The NAKED Truth: The Best Beaches!

Hello NAKED People!

This year my hash tag is #MostMemorableYear and I have been traveling throughout North America to make this the year I won’t forget. I have been to some pretty awesome beaches and wanted to share the NAKED truth on some of the best beaches. It’s only May 1st and I have already visited each of these beaches, i have to pinch myself to make sure this is “real life!”

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is a beautiful city that is a perfect mix of tourist destination and authentic Mexican city. The coast line is packed with breath taking beaches to explore. The two you most visit are Los Muertos Beach in the heart of the city and Playa Mismaloya just south of Puerto Vallarta.

Mismaloya, a small fishing village, was made famous in 1963 when the film Night of the Iguana was filmed there. From Playa Mismaloya you get breath taking views of the Los Arcos seas rocks. You can take a public bus from Puerto Vallarta Centro to Mismaloya (about 30 minutes), get off at the Zoologico de Vallarta stop and take the dirt road across from the zoo down to the beach. TIP: At the beach you can pay a local fisherman to take you on a boat ride to get up close to the Los Arcos sea rocks or you can walk along the trail to where the Iguana movie was filmed.

Los Muertos Beach, in the heart of Vallarta, is a perfect place to get a taste of the flair and culture of the city. There are many restaurants on or near the beach to grab a taco or some other local treat to enjoy, while sipping on a margarita and working on your tan. Many afternoons you can hear the sounds of a local mariachi band playing in the distance.

Playa Del Carmen, Mexico on the Yucatan Peninsula’s east coast has a spectacular coast line with the Caribbean Sea. Just south of Cancun, this beach town has some of the clearest blue water in the Caribbean and baby soft sand. You can enjoy the beach by day and some of the best nightlife in Mexico by night. Superstar DJ David Guetta calls Playa Del Carmen home, so you never know when he might pop in to the local club to say hi or spin some beats.

Ocean Beach, San Francisco, CA is a perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The best way to get there is by taking the N Judah muni line outbound to the very end. If taking the muni from the downtown area near Civic Center, plan on a 45 to 50 minutes train ride, the ride is worth it. From the rolling sand dunes to the views of seagulls flying over head, Ocean Beach is just what the relaxation doctor ordered. The water is a bit chilly, so this beach is more a place to relax and catch some sun than to take a full on dip in.

Playa Progreso just a short 30 minute drive from Merida, Mexico is on the tip on the Yucatan Peninsula. The warm water of the Gulf of Mexico invites  you to jump in and take a swim. You may have to because the summer high temperatures reach the 100’s and with high humidity, you will need to relief of the water. Make sure to take a banana boat ride here, they are so much fun and will leave you laughing and smiling for hours. TIP: This beach is popular with families, so if you don’t like children you may not want this beach.

Myrtle Beach, SC is one of those beaches you have to go to once in your life. It had its “hay day” in the 80s as a family summer trip destination, but its still very popular with American families. The souvenir shops are still packed full of 80s neon shirts, hats and trinkets. Pick some up, they are sure to be collectors items. hehe. There are two beaches and two cities: Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. While Myrtle Beach has the boardwalk and the amusement rides, North Myrtle is less attractions and more about the beach. So if you want the party life pick Myrtle and if you want a more beach only scene pick North Myrtle.

Its definitely the #MostMemorableYear and thats the NAKED truth!

Operation #MostMemorableYear Ever Continues

My 2014 resolution is to make this the most memorable year ever. Now that the first 3 months of the year are over, its time to look back at the first quarter of 2014 and see how my resolution is going.

Check out my cool travel flipagram for the year to date: http://flipagram.com/f/BoU5sSPmG2

I have to say it is going amazingly. So far I have traveled to Mammoth Lakes, Portland, Puerto Vallarta (twice), Guadalajara, San Diego and San Francisco. Being able to see so many places in s short amount of time is incredible. Along the way I have caught up with old friends and made new friends. I’ve been introduced to new foods and new cultures. This is truly living.

Its April and I am ready to see what the next 9 months have in store.

How is your New Years resolution going? Is 2014 your most memorable year? Let me know and until next time… Live, Life, NAKED!

Hello Portland!

Hello Portland!

pdx

A few weeks ago I traveled up to Portland, Oregon to check out the sights, sounds, food and parks. What a beautiful city, but i will say one thing… BRRRRR! hehe. I have to go back in the Summer to enjoy the city more, so many outdoor activities to check out, that the winter doesn’t allow you to.

I absolutely loved the Japanese Garden, it should be on everyone’s “Portland To Do List.”

Food Tips: Everyone raves about VooDoo donuts, and yes they are delicious and of course I had like 4. There are two other gems I came across that are must do’s: Eat Diner with its quirky and tasty donut hamburger sliders and yummy Canadian influenced Poutine (cheese, gravy and fries). Roxy Diner, open 24 hours is a great spot for a late night breakfast after the clubs. So tasty you will ask for a doggy bag to savor the left overs when you wake up.

I had a blast when I met Bolivia Carmichaels at CC Slaughters nightclub. You better follow her on twitter @QueenBolivia and hit her up when you get to Portland. She co-hosts a radio show on Wild Planet Radio and I was a guest on yesterday’s show. Take a listen listen, my interview starts at 17 minutes in. Enjoy the naked truth:

There you have it folks, some fun tips to Portland… Till next time, Live Life NAKED!

2014 The Most Memorable Year – @GayTravelGuy

Hello All my NAKED Friends.

Happy 2014. I hope you’re year is starting off in a great way. My resolution for 2014 is to make this the most memorable year ever. I will be traveling often and exploring new places, pushing my fears and hopefully overcoming some of them, meeting new people and sharing my journey with you all.

So far in the first two months of the year I have journeyed to 3 cities in 2 countries. First I went to Mammoth Lakes, California and went snow tubing down the side of a mountain at 45 MPH. That was quite a rush, until I was heading face first towards an ice block. Thankfully I got it under control and didn’t crash. What a thrill and so much fun!

In late January, went on a solo trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I can officially cross “Go on an international trip by myself” off my bucket list. But shhhh! Don’t tell me Mom, I told her I went with friends. She would have died of worry if she knew I went alone. Lets keep that our little secret. :)  I met many locals and explored the tourists side and the local side of the city. I have to say this was one of the best trips ever. The people were amazing, the culture was magnificent, the food was delicious and the beach was heavenly.

I then ventured up to the NW United States and took in the sights, sounds and food of Portland, Orgeon during their coldest weather in recent memory. I couldn’t be NAKED there, I would have died from the frost bite. hehe. Travel Tip: Lardo BBQ is a must. Their tasty and tangy brisket sandwich with sautéed greens and house fries. SUPERB!

IMG_4908

Next up is a trip to Guadalajara, Mexico where I look forward to visiting the historic center and downtown regions and also a day trip to Tequila, Mexico.

The NAKED Truth continues in 2014 with my journey to the most memorable year. I hope you come along for the ride.

Come back soon and I will have blog entries for each city I visit along with videos and photos.

Twerking with Kimmy Gibbler!

A lot of us grew up with her on TV’s Full House. Kimmy Gibbler (actress Andrea Barber) was the Tanner’s neighbor and DJ’s best friend. I got to meet the fun and lovable Andrea at the 2013 Rock n Roll Marathon in Las Vegas. We talk about her putting away the neon tights, her love for New Kids on the block and some how I got her to TWERK for the very first time. Love it!

You can watch the full interview including our show girl kick dance here:
