Yes, you heard me, my dream Christmas Destinations! Christmas Eve and Christmas Day must be spent with family, of course. I really would not have it any other way…but I can dream of visiting other locales during the Christmas season. I imagine sailing on a river cruise in Europe to the Christmas Markets with Viking River Cruises! What a dream come true that would be! [Read more…] about Here are My Dream Christmas Destinations!

There is no better introduction to Buenos Aires than a stay at the Palacio Duhau, or Park Hyatt, Buenos Aires. The 5-Star hotel is located in the Recoleta, an upper-end residential neighborhood known for its elegance, shopping, fine dining, and beautiful European style architecture. It is also known for the impressive Recoleta Cemetery, but more on that later!

Is The Scenic 17 Mile Drive along the California Coast Worth It? Oh, yes, it definitely is!
On our recent trip to Carmel-by-the-Sea, we were delighted to find that we were only a mile from the entrance to the Scenic 17 Mile Drive which winds through the Pebble Beach area. It truly is a magnificent drive, especially along the coast. We did the drive three times, and had very different experiences. The first time we drove by ourselves, and it was a sunny, perfect day with the bluest skies and sea you could ever hope for. The second time we went with friends, and it was very foggy, and had a different type of beauty…almost forlorn, I would say. Our third drive was to famous Spanish Bay, where the first rate golf course closes each night with a Bagpiper, walking from the 3rd Hole to the Club, at sunset. I will say it is absolutely the best way to spend a sunset in Pebble Beach! [Read more…] about Is The Scenic 17 Mile Drive along the California Coast Worth It?

Check out my Tour of The Rocks in Sydney!
Australia has a fascinating history. Many of those who settled Australia were convicts, sentenced to be “transported” by England, did you know that? I wanted to learn more about this history so I took a tour with The Rocks Walking Tours, located on Harrington Street, in The Rocks. They were recommended to me by the concierge at the Four Seasons Sydney, and I was very happy with the tour! It was so fascinating! [Read more…] about Taking a Tour of The Rocks in Sydney
