Segovia Alcazar

As much as I love my adopted city, Madrid, one of my favorite things to do is to explore more of the Iberian Peninsula. Spain is fascinating on so many levels, from its profound history to the vibrant pueblos hidden throughout the country. In fact, driving along Spain’s west coast through the Lower Rias is […]

Visit Ouray, Colorado

Do you have a favorite off-the-beaten-path mountain town in Colorado? For Alan and me, Ouray takes that honor.

Spend a Day With Art and History on Reynolda Road

April 8, 2015
The garden at Reynolda House in Winston-Salem

As I drive along Winston-Salem’s Reynolda Road, the trees and landscaping that border the sidewalks, remind me of the beauties of a southern landscape. It’s a pleasant meander through residential areas punctuated by pockets of businesses, museums, and the gates to Wake Forest University.
