Thoughts on the Olympic coverage. The world has gotten smaller and less parochial through social media - and the networks haven't kept up. 
Does traveling change your view of the Olympic Games? Yes, I say - and so does social media.

Soaring above Napa Valley in a hot air balloon. Is it on your bucket list? 
My second hot air balloon ride involved gorgeous views of Napa Valley - and luckily, no trees.

I've actually got a terrible fear of heights. Apparently you don't suffer from it in a hot air balloon, but I still have my doubts:)

A look at how an island in the touristy Canary Islands has changed its image. 
Interested in the Canary Islands? The island of Lanzarote has been bucking the Spanish archipelago's reputation as a party destination.

My birthday is tomorrow. Why we cancelled our dinner reservations and gave to charity: water instead. Plus a little bit about Chris Guillebeau's #wds2012  conference and why we found it so meaningful.

I've had altitude sickness before - and it's not fun. How I staved off the worst of it during my recent Colorado trip.

Good tips.  I drank LOTS and LOTS of water and pretty much no alcohol.  From running and hiking in Lake Tahoe, altitude had little effect on me.  Only time I felt it was on the gondola ride (which water took care of) and sleeping (but I was so busy didn't have much time for sleep anyways).  It definitely took more out of me than I expected!

I'm surprised with how much downtown Napa has been able to revitalize over the past few years. 
Downtown Napa has been on the rise for the past few years. A look at some of the restaurants and hotels that are fueling the change.

This week's #FriFotos  theme is SUMMER. We took this shot back when we lived in the sweltering Washington DC area. 
This week's Photo Friday looks at sand volleyball players in Washington DC and reflects upon summer weather patterns in the US.
