In 1893, Katharine Lee Bates was so inspired by the magnificent view of Pikes Peak, that she wrote the celebrated words to “America the Beautiful.” The glorious Pikes Peak Region indeed evokes spacious skies and purple mountain majesties. So who wouldn’t want to spend a weekend in Colorado Springs exploring this majestic region? Just an hour’s drive from Denver where I live now, this area is so easy to access, I’ve visited the region a couple of dozen times. More if I count the trips I made with my family, as a kid growing up in western Kansas. My grandmother lived in Colorado Springs during h ..read more

Any time I can get closer to the mountains is a good day. I live in the heart of Denver near downtown, so when I get out to the front range foothills I’m a happy gal. The foothills that run north to south around the Denver Metro welcome you to our beautiful Rocky Mountains and are a popular area to live and play. West Arvada may be a suburb – but it’s not your typical suburb when you have views like this!

I first traveled to Alaska in the summer – as most people do. I fell in love with the people and the landscape – I personally think it’s America’s most beautiful state and consistently falls in my top 5 places to visit in the entire world. I was always intrigued about how people lived there in the winter and what they did – so much so that I did my first Alaska winter trip in 2018. That’s when I really fell in love with Alaska in the winter. Since then I’ve been back 2 more times and it gets better each time! As I have shared my adventures there, I consistently get asked by readers to set up a ..read more

In a city of 13 million people covering 2000 square miles, how do you know where to begin? Istanbul is one of the largest cities in the Mediterranean and it is easily the largest city in Turkey. It’s been growing since the 1950s when migrants from Anatolia flocked to the city in search of economic prosperity and the city has been expanding to accommodate them. There are so many great Istanbul Neighborhoods to choose from, where do you start? What does this mean for you – one of 7 million visitors to Istanbul every year? It means you have some tough decisions to make when you are trying to deci ..read more

Where to Find the Best Patios in Denver – Go to Arvada

It’s summer! Do you feel it…the pull to be outside as much as we can? In Denver Colorado where we have sun 300 days a year (our best-kept not-so-secret), it’s the perfect region for outdoor dining, drinking, games, markets, and events. The front range comes alive as restaurants and bars sweep off their patios, and set up their chairs, tables, corn hole, bocce ball, and stages. It’s the opening of patio season around Colorado’s front range; patios in Denver – here we come! This is the time of year I find myself asking friends, “where can we go and sit outside?”. It’s the time to head to Denver ..read more

Travel Disasters and How to Minimize Them

Sponsored Content by Medjet If you’ve traveled for any time at all, then you have one of those stories… a close call, the story of the time that was nearly a travel disaster – or maybe you had an actual travel disaster. I have plenty of those stories – so many that I created a special ‘tag’ for them on my blog called “Bad Travel Stories”. They have ranged from being stranded in a country indefinitely, unwanted advances from men, getting sick in a remote place, nearly getting arrested in Kazakhstan, altitude sickness in remote areas, and the list goes on. If you are the type of person who likes ..read more

Weekend in Denver: Where to Eat, Stay, and Play

At 5,280 feet above sea level, the Mile High City offers culture, history, galleries, great restaurants, and brewpubs. A weekend in Denver is the perfect way to sample what the city has to offer. Denver is known as the Napa Valley of craft beer, where eating and drinking rank up there with biking and hiking. With a backdrop of the snow-capped Rocky Mountains, Denver worked its magic on me more than three decades ago, and I’ve called it home ever since. It’s fun for me to brag about the Mile-High City and its eateries, brewpubs, neighborhoods, and nearly every-day sunshine. I want visitors to l ..read more

2 days in Portland Oregon: How to Spend a Weekend Eating Donuts and Working Them Off

It had been 10 years since I set foot in eclectic, weird Portland and I have many fond memories of my visits there. However, Portland’s destination image has taken a major hit because of COVID-19, political violence, and public safety concerns over the last few years. This of course made me want to visit it even more (because I’m weird like that and love the underdog) to see how it’s changed, and how it has dealt with all the tourism blows. I planned 2 days in Portland to go back to some of my favorite places and to see for myself if Portland had lost its mojo. When I think of Portland I think ..read more

What to expect on a Galapagos Cruise to the Eastern Islands

I stepped from the zodiac raft to the cement jetty on the small Island of Plaza Sur; I had finally made it to the Galapagos Islands. I stood there for a moment soaking it in, looking around at the sea lions and iguanas unphased by my presence. Birds circled us overhead. The sun was low in the sky and the barren island was glowing in a soft buttery yellow light. In the distance I stared at the silhouettes of unusual looking cactus. My first thought was, this is my kind of place; remote, natural, unique…so why did I wait so long to finally come on a Galapagos cruise? But at the same time – I’m a ..read more
