Chicago is that wonderful town

What a great place! Not long ago my husband and I were in the Windy City (more about that later). It was early October, unusually warm; in fact, temperatures were in the high 70s with ...

Nostalgic day-cation in Los Angeles

Like most people hailing from Los Angeles, I have a healthy love-hate relationship with the city. I grew up a "valley kid" in the suburbs of the San Fernando Valley. Downtown, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, ...

Damn, it's cold! NYC in late winter

Editor's note: as in California and much of the country, stay-at-home orders are currently in place in New York City as of spring 2020. Wherever you are, stay safe, as we look forward to travel ...

Ghost hunting at the Tombstone Motel

NY’s Finger Lakes: big city thrills, mountain town charm

Usually, when you think of little towns in Appalachia complete with serene lakes, it’s easy to make assumptions on what you can do and see. Of course, you expect beauty and quiet relaxation. But the ...

Love for H-Town

Ahh, Houston! As soon as I landed, my shirt got stuck to my body as I breathed in that humid thick air. Siri told me that my week visiting Texas for my cousin’s wedding was ...

Idyllic Idyllwild: a weekend in the woods

"Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean." ~ John Muir Ah, now I understand ...

I forge a Virginia ham trail
