Our time in London was brief yet we wanted to see everything. London’s an incredibly walkable city & with a comfy pair of shoes & a beautiful day you can easily see all the big sites. This post will outline the walking tour route that B & I took to see all the major landmarks of London: Tower of […]
When I called my travel agent friend, Jonathan Epstein of the fabulous Celebrate Experiences, to ask him for advice on where to stay for our first trip to London, it didn’t surprise me that the hotel he sent me to was both luxurious & Irish-owned. The Kensington Hotel is located in one of the poshest […]
When B told me he was attending a conference at the historic Greenbrier Resort, I jumped at the chance to experience a stay at this American icon. Now perhaps best known for serving as the chosen relocation site for Congress in the event of a nuclear attack on Washington during the Cold War, this sprawling property […]
Robert H. Treman State Park in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York is positively gorge-ous (pun intended). The park’s moderately challenging 5 mile round trip hike takes you through the gorge & up to the top of the gorge rim. One of the highlights of the hike is the natural swimming hole – complete […]
The other day, as B & I hiked through the woods, we were discussing our favorite travel experiences. It was really hard to narrow down all the amazing things of my last 33 years to just a few. After further thought, I realized that many of my favorite experiences fall into a few different buckets. […]
During our recent visit to the Finger Lakes, we decided to hit up a few Seneca Lake vineyards & breweries that we hadn’t previously visited. Seneca Lake has a rather famous wine trail, but the brewers are quickly catching up with high quality beer featuring the same jaw-dropping views as the vineyards. Note that many of these […]
We’re back from our annual Labor Day getaway to the Finger Lakes & I think I’ve somehow fallen further in love with this picturesque, incredibly chill region of upstate New York. Our jaunt up to Seneca Lake came right at the perfect time – we really needed a break. We stayed in a lake […]
I literally squealed with delight when I heard this week’s #FriFotos theme. After all, if there’s one thing I know, it’s coffee! I was stunned at how many photos I have of coffees I’ve drank around the world… here are just a few of my favorite spots. You might also like… FriFotos: The Best FriFotos: […]
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 bag. I'll be the one with my toes dug in the sand, pontificating about my love of NYC & Ireland, 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.
