Do you dream of taking a cruise in Norway, especially if it includes the fjords? This baby boomer did. Then, Alan and I traveled on a 15-day Regent cruise on the Seven Seas Voyager through the land of the midnight sun and my dream came true. During our cruise in Norway, we visited the cosmopolitan cities […]
Last month, Alan and I flew from Tucson to Los Angeles to Atlanta in five days. Usually, when traveling for more than a couple of days, we check bags, which allows me to bring my favorite beauty products. But this time, we joined the ranks of travelers avoiding checked luggage fees. “Whaa,” I wailed, “How […]
We weren’t looking for France, but that’s what Alan and I found at Leroux Creek Inn and Vineyards in Hotchkiss, Colorado. Well not exactly France, but we did discover a wonderful mix of Santa Fe adobe, warm hospitality and French cooking set amidst scenery worthy of any vineyard in Provence or the Loire Valley. The […]
No, Alan and I didn’t see a ghost on our visit to Baer House Inn Bed and Breakfast in Vicksburg, Mississippi. But we slept with enough stories, antiques and memorabilia to satisfy any baby boomer historian. Located in Vicksburg’s historic downtown district, the 1870’s era Eastlake Victorian home has seven guest rooms, most with private baths. […]
If you’re on a trip to the Hawaiian Islands, don’t miss the adventure along Kauai’s Na Pali coast. I know you’ve seen it, even if you’ve never been to Kauai. Photos of the jagged coastline appear in almost every travel article about this scenic Hawaiian island. It’s one of our favorite boomer adventures in Hawaii. […]
Updated 09.15.2015: Now under new management, the name has changed to Kapitea Lodge. When Alan and I toured New Zealand with Robert Panzer of Tailored Travel, he introduced us to a sophisticated luxury lodge on the wild, West Coast of the South Island. Located halfway between Hokitika and Greymouth, Kapitea Ridge sits on a hillside, surrounded […]
The guest lounge at Wanaka Springs Lodge When it comes to lodging, I appreciate the personal touch. Well, that’s what you’ll find at Wanaka Springs Lodge. Owners, Lyn and Murray Finn, greet you at the door, keep the conversation and drinks flowing during the afternoon cocktail hour plus prepare your made-to-order breakfast while you sit at the […]
On cruises, Alan and I like to get moving when the ship is in port. That’s how we found ourselves enjoying an active day in Bergen during a Norwegian fjords cruise with Regent Seven Seas. After arriving at Norway’s second largest city (284,000 population), we walked the charming streets, then boarded a funicular to hike […]
When the thermometer reads 108 degrees in Arizona, this broiling hot baby boomer re-visits her favorite frozen adventures. I picture snow piled high around a rustic cabin, cross-country skiing across a rolling meadow or sitting in the dining room at Hannagan Meadow Lodge watching the snowflakes fall. Located at 9100 ft., in the White Mountains of eastern […]
