It was the best thing I could have … Continue reading »

Girls Getaway to the City by the Bay

The first thing you need to know about your completely fabulous getaway to San Francisco is that you are going to be friggin’ cold. Doesn’t matter if it is winter, spring, summer or fall, this beautiful city is pretty much always chilly, especially in the evenings, especially near the bay, especially if you are actually … Continue reading »

Don’t Forget the Bonine or Why I Will Never Again Eat A Chocolate Covered Cherry

I like to think I’m pretty travel savvy. I have learned to pack (somewhat) lighter in that I don’t take nearly as many pairs of shoes as I truly desire. I print all my contact information and tuck it neatly into my suitcase in case it is ever – God forbid – lost with all … Continue reading »

Photo Friday: Pirate Wenches on Tybee Island, Georgia

Last fall, we went to the annual Tybee Island, Georgia Pirate Fest and had a ball. Just about everyone on the small island got into the pirate spirit and we saw lots of people dressed up. Three scurvy wenches caught Tom’s photographer eye.

Aquariums are some of our favorite places and we will seek out an aquarium in any city we visit. The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago was well worth our time and we particularly enjoyed the jellyfish exhibit. Pin It

Luxury Experience at Radisson Blu Aqua in Chicago

    It was the carpet in our room that I first fell in love with at this hip, modern and absolutely cool new hotel in Chicago. It was turquoise. Bright, beautiful turquoise and the perfect complement to the ultra-modern vibe throughout the room and, indeed, throughout the entire hotel. We were only there for … Continue reading »

Photo Friday: Frozen Lake Michigan Dock

I use Tom’s photos all the time in my writing – pretty much every photo on the travel blog was taken by him. Except food. He leaves it up to me to take the food photos. He simply does not understand the fascination with taking a picture of a lovely plate of food when he could be … Continue reading »
