Pretty, isn’t it? But where is this window? Is it in Spain? Hint, no, I’ve never been to Spain “but I kinda like the music” 😉 Savannah, or Laguna Beach? Maybe Bari or Siena, Italy? No, it is none of these places I have visited. It is in Viviers, France along the right bank of … More The Biggest Travel Photo Mistake Is…
Recently we cashed in a few hotel points and stayed at our local Marriott at HARBORCENTER in Buffalo. The hotel is connected to the Key Bank Center, home of the Buffalo Sabres. We had Saturday afternoon tickets and decided to take advantage of the parking and proximity. We parked our car in the ramp for the … More Traveling at Home
(Original post date: July 2013) (Updated April 2016) I took French in high school and remember Paris being my mothers romantic favorite. There were so many things to see and only 2 days to accomplish the list. Someday I want to go to Paris! When I first started framing this post all I could think … More #LivingSomedayToday in Paris!

I just returned from a dream vacation, Paris to Lyon and a cruise on the Rhone River. I ate new foods, tasted wonderful wine and saw monuments and lavender fields.

Our happy plan began more than a year ago when a group of neighbors and friends decided to go on a European river cruise. I … More Fabulous 4th of July in #Paris
When we landed we were supposed to be picked up by the tour company. Several of the folks in our group had cars waiting but we had to ask for the assistance of a very kind gentleman in a dark suit. Seems that all of the drivers wear dark suits, thin ties and sharp shoes, … More First day in #Paris
The trip to the airport was uneventful. Our friend Bill drove us to Toronto so we didn’t need to park our car. Nice beginning. It was strange to not have a boarding pass prior to arriving at the airport. It took a minute to figure out how the kiosk worked but it was as simple … More France 2013 – The Journey Begins

It’s safe to say that happens never. 5:01 am: put on sensible shoes and put suitcase into car. 5:04 am: change sensible shoes and replace with more stylish shoes. 5:11 am: depart for airport 11 minutes late. No worries…I won’t stop for coffee … More A Day Of New York Minutes
I travel a lot, often by myself. While I am not averse to eating alone with a book or my iPad, I most often enjoy sitting among my soon to be friends at the bar. You usually get served more quickly and you often have small plate options not available on the full menu. Twice in … More It’s Fun to Eat at the Bar!
