In this post, we’ll take our last Vancouver walk together — this time with plenty of food and drink to make up for all of those burned calories at Stanley Park! My sojourn in Vancouver was made easier by having my two nights’ stay comped by Nightswapping, a travel app and website that sets up

The Mystery At the annual Wine Bloggers Conference (WBC), one late afternoon/early evening is dedicated to an excursion out of the host hotel and into the wine region itself. Where we bloggers go is a mystery; each tour bus heads to a different location for a wine tasting and dinner, and just where we will

I don’t often let my photos speak entirely for themselves on this blog, but other than for a few tourist tips, I’m going to let them do just that. Why? Because I can’t describe how beautiful it was to spend the day at La Sagrada Familia, the masterpiece basilica of Antonin Gaudi’s design that is

On the western tip of San Francisco lies the abandoned Sutro Baths. It’s a popular—but not always populous—tourist destination that draws photographers from far and wide for its breathtaking views of the Pacific Coast. Along with nearby Land’s End, the Sutro Baths are part of the larger National Golden Gate Recreation Area. The Land’s End

I’ve been to Minneapolis a number of times, but somehow, I hadn’t made it to neighboring St. Paul, the capitol of Minnesota. So on my last trip to the area, I was determined to spend an afternoon there. It didn’t make any sense to this wanderluster to be that close to the city and never

On my third trip to Minneapolis this past May, I felt the challenge of figuring out what was left for me to tour in the area. I’d conquered the Chain of Lakes, the Walker Museum, the Sculpture Garden, the Guthrie Theater, the Mall of America, and plenty of delicious eats and drinks downtown. Yet somehow,

Last July, I spent the weekend in the Outer Banks for only the second time in the eight years I lived in North Carolina. My first trip was camping on Ocracoke, the most remote of the islands, so I had never done the typical tourist activities in the more accessible areas, and I wanted to

For eight years, I lived in Durham, NC, and for eight years, I told myself “Someday!” when I drove past the abandoned Durham Funwerks amusement park on Garrett Road, right before the 15-501 intersection. Someday, I would explore the mysterious giant castle. Someday, I would hike my way through the overgrown mini-golf course to the

This is the third and final set of panoramas from my California trip in mid-July. The first was views of Los Angeles from the Hollywood Hills and the Getty. The second was Yosemite Part 1, with images of the meadows, Bridal Veil Falls, and Vernal Falls. This final part covers the multitudes of panoramas I

In July, I spent two weeks in California, my home state and heart state but a place I haven’t lived since college, almost a decade ago now. I was in Los Angeles for the first and last few days of the trip, and so I thought I’d share with you the few panoramas I took
