Jazz great John Coltrane’s splendid version of “My Favorite Things” is my 2016 theme for the holidays. For all newsletter participants please see my website gswlaw.com, Trip Advisor Subpage. (I have become one of Trip Advisor’s top reviewers with over 18,000 readers to date).
In July 2015, for my 60th birthday I went to the Carter Estate Resort and Winery in Temecula, CA and in a fit of inspiration wrote my first Trip Advisor review (I have recently published #21).
As I travel the great, golden state of California and are mesmerized by its grandeur, natural beauty and wonderful people I want to share my experiences in the La Dolce Vita (Sweet Life) California Style.
And so inspired by John Coltrane, I introduce you to some of my “Favorite Things”: wineries, restaurants, resorts, spas and the magnificent California Coastline (nearly 900 miles of magic). Enjoying California for me is simple: jump in my jeep play Sinatra/Elvis/Beatles (others) and explore the thrill of California.
In the words of Frank Sinatra: “Come Fly with Me” and see my TA reviews; the most frequented are: the Peninsula Hotel (Beverly Hills), my favorite urban hotel, the Four Seasons (Westlake Village), my favorite California resort, and Allegretto Hotel/Resort/Winery in Paso Robles with nearby award-winning Pomar Junction Winery.
I wish you all a very happy holiday and a very prosperous new year.
