Her only concern was when I would be going back to Spain so I could bring her back that particular wine. Even during my time in Korea...

Best Kitesurfing in Mallorca, Spain

Until recently, I knew next to nothing about kitesurfing. I knew it looked amazingly fun, seeing people on their boards, catching waves and whirling and twirling in the air. However, I also knew, it scared the beejeebees out of me. I could just see myself crashing face forward, then being drug, and flipped and flopped all across the water. No thanks.

It's an absolute priority for me. I mean,...
