My Midlife Walking Trip Across England on Hadrian’s Wall Path

Standing in the middle of a pasture, my back and feet aching from walking 12 miles already that day, I found myself taking a deep breath and squeezing back tears of frustration as I spied the “No Trespassing” sign on the gate up ahead. “Well, where the F’ am I supposed to go then,” I said aloud to the cows and sheep nearby. I was three days into my eight-day English walking holiday along the Hadrian’s Wall Path and until that moment, I thought I was just minutes away from my lodging for the night. Since the animals didn’t provide an answer, I swallowed my frustration and dug a little deeper, r ..read more

If you love the outdoors, beautiful scenery, getting away from people, exploring small cities and towns, sampling craft breweries and distilleries, relaxing in comfy lodges, and taking part in fun adventures, you need to plan your next girls’ trip to Western Montana. A friend of mine recently moved to California from the East Coast and, since we didn’t get to celebrate our milestone birthdays together, we decided to plan a Montana girlfriend getaway.

Sailing in Maine on the Schooner Heritage Windjammer

With the wind whipping my hair around my face, I sat back on my deck cushion on the Schooner Heritage and watched sailboats flying by as the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse faded into the distance and we headed out into Penobscot Bay. My friend Michelle and I were embarking on a three-day, four-night cruise aboard the Schooner Heritage, one of nine ships in the Maine Windjammer Association. Living in Rhode Island, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to sail in Newport, but those were always short half-day trips or hour-long excursions. A whole vacation dedicated to sailing in Maine was an entirely ..read more

10 Fun Things to do in Moncton, New Brunswick on a Girls’ Trip

When I told my husband I was visiting Moncton, New Brunswick on my Atlantic Canada road trip, he asked what I was going to do there as the only thing he knew about Moncton was that it was the home of the New York Islanders hockey training camp. Since it was summer and I’m not a hockey fan (can I admit that and still go to Canada?), I assured him that there were plenty of fun things to do in Moncton that didn’t involve hockey. As I explored Moncton and the surrounding area over the next few days, I realized that this would make a great girls’ trip destination for those who live in Eastern Canad ..read more

“You had me at wine hotel,” I told Rachel, the expert travel planner and wine aficionado at EPIC Travel, a boutique travel agency that creates custom itineraries with bespoke experiences in Portugal and Morocco. We were reviewing the details of my girls’ trip to Portugal and deciding where to stay in the Alentejo wine region of the country. Since I love exploring new regions through its food and wine, I was all in when EPIC suggested staying at a few wine hotels in Portugal. In the States, we mostly know Portuguese wine for its Port or Vinho Verde varietals, but the more time you spend in Port ..read more

Unless you know someone who graduated from Arizona State University, you may have never heard of Tempe (pronounced Tem-pee), Arizona.

If I had to pick a favorite spot for a girlfriend getaway, the Finger Lakes region in New York is a top contender, especially in the fall. With 11 gorgeous lakes, rolling hills rich with verdant farmland, magnificent waterfalls, charming small cities, and over 100 wineries, cideries, breweries, and distilleries, it is a surprise this area isn’t on everyone’s radar. When my college friends and I were discussing a spot for a quick girl’s trip this fall, the Finger Lakes was top of mind. An easy drive from our homes in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania, we decided to meet up in Ithaca ..read more

Wings, Beer, and a Side of History on a Girls’ Weekend in Buffalo

Admit it, when I say Buffalo, New York all you think of is its infamous Buffalo wings or maybe the Buffalo Bills football team, right? Or cold winters with the “lake effect” piling up mountains of snow? That’s what I thought of too, until recently. I had never dreamed of planning a girls’ weekend in Buffalo. That changed when I met with a representative from Visit Buffalo Niagara‘s tourism board. He started telling me all about the unique foods in Buffalo, the revitalized waterfront, the craft beer scene, and how young people were moving back to Buffalo. My ears perked up. I live in a place wi ..read more
