In America today, we pause to give thanks for our family, friends & nation. Once again this year, I have so much for which to be thankful. No matter where you are in the world, whether today is Thanksgiving or not, take a moment to be thankful. You might also like… Thanksgiving Happy Holidays Wordless […]
In 1803, the Lieutenant Governor declared the area where St. Lawrence Market now stands to be “Market Block” & a farmers market popped up. In 1831 the small wooden structure which housed the farmers market & St. Lawrence Market as we see today was formed. One of two markets in Toronto, this vibrant market now […]
During my whirlwind of business travel this year, I found myself in New York City twice in three weeks. By total happenstance (someone else booked my hotel the second time), I found myself staying at the same hotel on both trips. In a city of nearly a million hotel rooms, I love to hop around, […]
Written on November 14, 2013… I’m writing this while rumbling along the less-than-perfect-this-is-why-we-can’t-have-a-bullet-train CSX tracks in northern New Jersey on the Acela train. I’m on my way home from my something-th (I’ve lost count) & last (scheduled) business trip of the past year. It started in Orlando last October & ended today in New York […]
I’ve been doing a lot of travel lately & noticed that I turn to the same apps over & over again to make my trips go more smoothly. These are four of my favorites: TripIt I love TripIt because it keeps me super organized & it’s ridiculously easy to use. Simply register your email address […]
I can officially say that Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is one of the weirdest things you will ever see while exploring a city. Created by artist Isaiah Zagar, these tunnels of glass, plates, metallic objects, handmade tiles, bicycle rims, etc. are almost mesmerizing. Sandwiched between two buildings on Philly’s South Street, the Magic Gardens take visitors from […]
When we visited Philadelphia last month our main goal was to do what we love to do most when traveling: check out neighborhoods & do as the locals do. We fell in love with three neighborhoods in particular: Fairmount, Bella Vista, & Graduate Hospital. The best part about these neighborhoods is that they’re all easily accessible […]
While on our Celebrity Cruise in August, I had the pleasure of sitting down & chatting with Darren Tiller & Steve Gayda, the current Hotel Director & Cruise Director of the Celebrity Summit. We spoke in Darren’s office, which is tucked behind the guest services desk at sea level. The two were as friendly as […]
I'm a D.I.N.K. (Double Income, No Kids). Follow along as B (that would be my husband) & I travel the world, blissfully unburdened by strollers, diaper bags & Elmo-related meltdowns. I'll be the one with my toes dug in the sand, pontificating about my love of NYC, a cup of coffee in one hand, a local craft beer in the other & a camera slung over my shoulder.
I usually pay my own way for the experiences shared here. Sometimes I don't. If something is comp'd, you'll always know. Regardless, you'll always get my honest experiences & honest opinions - the good, the bad, the ugly & the fabulous.
