In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and po...

Solo Female Travel in Central America — Is it Safe?

Is it safe for a woman to travel alone in Central America? Absolutely. With the right research and preparation, almost every destination in the world can be traveled safely by women on their own. Central America has so much to offer — and it’s so much safer than many people think. The closest I’ve ever been to having an “Eat, Pray, Love” trip was when I went to Central America for several months. I had been struggling through one of the worst times in my life and what got me through it was tell...

We are Soon Sailing With Uniworld River Cruises

Carol and I will soon be sailing with the Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection on the Rhône to experience Lyon, Avignon, Arles, the fabulous Burgundy Wine Country and much more. We sailed this same river back in 2015.  But, a week of strong rains plus the snow melt from the nearby Alps kept us from sailing and had us bopping around by bus. While this was certainly not the experience we were hoping for, we made lemonade out of lemons and vowed to come back. If you go to your local grocery st...

After the Burning of Notre Dame, Let’s Look at the Cross

Last year, on a visit to Antwerp’s Cathedral in Belgium, I was struck by one of its artworks. Struck, because it seemed so out of place with the rest of the cathedral’s pieces. Struck, because I wasn’t sure if it was a joke or even sacrilegious. But as we head towards Easter while the world mourns the destruction of one of its greatest cathedrals, I can't help but think this strange artwork holds a message for us. More…

How Intel’s Newest Product Enhancements Could Redefine the Future of Infrastructure Design

On the 2nd of April, at their Data Centric Innovation Day, Intel announced a slew of new products, including brand spanking new ones as well as updates to existing product line-ups.

La Mirande Hotel Chef’s Table: Avignon, France

La Mirande Hotel Chef’s Table: Avignon, France There are standout experiences that one shares with fellow travelers from around the world.  One that sticks out in our minds was this special chef’s table dinner at the La Mirande Hotel in Avignon, France. Not only did we enjoy the setting in the hotel’s wine cellar and the exquisite cuisine, but our chef sang to us in French and then we were serenaded by two opera singers who happened to be participants in our small group of twelve diners.

What’s It Really Like to Travel Guyana?

When I knew I was traveling to Guyana, I had no idea what to expect. Even for the girl who grew up constantly reading about other countries, I knew very little about Guyana and never really had a desire to visit. Then in November, I received an opportunity to visit Guyana on one of the Guyana Tourism Authority’s very first press trips. At the time, I was in Kenya on another press trip. One of the writers with me was Guyanese-American, and I excitedly told her I got invited to her home country. ...

Six Unexpected Places to Stay in the USA

With the United States so close to the Canadian border, you would be hard pressed to find someone who has never visited at least once. It’s right there, it’s easy to get to, and Canadians can visit with fairly lax limitations. Many go to take advantage of shopping, of the warmer temperatures down south, and of course to see the world-famous cities and national parks. The issue, however, is that the United States is a huge place, which means many Canadians who visit often end up going to the same...
