#AcadiaNationalPark  is a wonderful retreat for a weekend or a week. Here are some images to inspire you! #ExpediaLovesParks   #FindYourPark  
These past few months have weighed heavy on many of our hearts and minds. It’s difficult for me, as a woman, as a person of color, child of immigrants, and mother to biracial children, to process it without feeling overwhelmed with the gravity of it all. Though I don’t recommend travel as an escape to our [...]

Looking for a fabulous #winelovers  getaway? Try #Dijon  , #France   #Burgundy   #VisitFrenchWine   #GGTinFrance  +Atout France 
It was a beautiful summer day when I arrived to Dijon, France. I quickly dropped off my bags in my hotel room at the trendy, Michelin rated Le Chapeau Rouge, slipped into some comfortable walking shoes and headed out. I hadn’t been to this beautiful city in two years but I remembered how much I enjoyed [...]

One of the highlights of our road trip through Northern Italy: #LakeComo . Check it out, new on the blog!
One of the highlights of our road trip through northern Italy was our stay in Lake Como. Most of our stops were in the Lombardy region, where there are lakes galore. Lake Como, the third largest lake in Italy and one of the deepest, is heavily visited by locals and tourists alike, especially during the summer months. Finding a place [...]

My first stop in #Burgundy#France  was to the city of #Macon ! Here are some highlights! #FrenchWineTravels
One of the things that I have loved in visiting France over the years is that no two cities are ever completely alike. Sure, there is the architecture and food and of course language, but even these are influenced by elements unique to its historical past and region. Even the language is different throughout the [...]

Rhone Valley is a beautiful destination, its valleys covered in lavender and fresh cherries and peaches. The wind rolling over the hills kissing your face as your travel through. But the wine, oh man, oh man, the wine. That is the ultimate treat indeed! #FranceWines

Looking for a unique and meaningful vacation? Check out my experience traveling to the #DominicanRepublic  with +Fathom Travel . #traveldeep  
It’s taking me a bit to share my experiences while cruising to and volunteering in the Dominican Republic with Fathom Travel because it was such an overwhelming experience on so many levels. First, it was the very first time my youngest boys had visited the country. Yes, I lived there for many years (from 9 [...]

Looking for a fun filled summer? Here's one of our favorite family vacations at +Steamboat Resort in Steamboat Springs,  #Colorado .

#travelphotography  
I have enjoyed visiting Colorado in the winter in the past but it is no secret that summers are my favorite and when it comes to finding fun things to do, Steamboat Springs delivers. And the word is out. It used to be that the energy of the town and even that of the Steamboat Resort was [...]

It's camp season, for adults - no counselors need apply. New, on the blog. #CampNoCounselors   #GirlGoneTravel  
If there is any rite of passage as a kid, besides braces and the incredibly awkward preteen years, it’s sleepaway camp. Bonfires, s’mores, first crushes, cabin pranks, trumpet wake up calls. At least this is what I envisioned camp to be. As a kid I never went to camp. My dad says he and my [...]

Looking for beaches, taco trucks, cold drinks, and tropical weather? Here's an idea: #PuertoVallarta !
I’ve traveled quite a bit in my life. Near or far, I’ve never needed an excuse to get away. But for some reason I’ve always held the mindset that if the flight is more than 5 hours I might as well go to Europe, which has kind of guided my choices as far as traveling [...]
