Posted by on Apr 28, 2015 in Monterey, Travel | 2 comments

We stayed as a guest of the property After spending a couple of days in Yosemite, our vacation continued. It was now time for some fresh sea air, clam chowder, and ocean views, so we left Yosemite and hit the coast. We made it to Monterey Bay in about 3 hours. We knew we wanted to stay somewhere close to The famous Fisherman’s Wharf so we could walk to all the fun waterfront attractions. We found the breathtaking Portola Hotel & Spa, which sits right in the heart of Monterey with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Portola it’s so perfectly located in Monterey, there is no need ever to use your vehicle once you arrive. You can walk to Wharf, Cannery Row, local downtown shops, cafes, and even the Aquarium.

Today while driving to work I had a crazy thought, “while I am at work today, what if I knew my wife Korrie would throw my son on her back, grab the family water jug, and travel miles to the nearest place to access water?” After hours of her journey to get water, and then collect water that is not clean water – water that is full of bacteria causing many deathly diseases. She then would take this heavy water jug back to our home for us. This scenario is a reality to many women in developing countries today. Now close to 1 billion people on earth do not have access to clean water. 5,000 children under eight years old die everyday due to water related disease. This is simply is not okay. In 2010 shortly after I started...
