Michigan’s Little Bavaria

Dear Reader, When was the last time a place made you go “wow!”? For me, this happened when we traveled 90 minutes northwest of Detroit to the little city of Frankenmuth, Michigan. Frankenmuth is no ordinary place. After driving through miles of fields and farmland, we were confronted with a giant, arching sign printed with... Continue Reading →

Pit Stop in the Motor City

Dear Reader, Would you ever consider vacationing in Detroit? For me, the answer isn’t “no,” exactly, it’s more like… “perhaps…”. Now that I am in Detroit, I see that like any major American city, there is a lot to do here! When determining your Detroit getaway, here are some things to consider: Detroit River Price....

A Taste of the Big Apple

Dear Reader, Short, spontaneous trips can be great to revitalize one’s spirits. In my continued work-from-home situation, I am finding it increasingly difficult to focus my attention on my computer screen. While I used to work for over an hour straight without distractions, now, anything longer than 15 minutes feels like a mental burden (yikes!).... Continue Reading →

[Review] Harpoon Brewery

Dear Reader, How much beer can you drink in ten minutes? That question right there was pretty much the theme of the Harpoon Brewery tour and tasting. In my alcohol-production-facility tour and tasting experiences, I have come to find that these attractions come in all shapes and sizes. When I went on whiskey distillery tours... Continue Reading →

Gently Down the Stream

Dear Reader, They say, “the best things in life are free.” And, when they say the “best things” they are probably referring to health, love, family, friends, etc. — which are great, but there are very many other beautiful free things out there! I’m a bit of a scavenger (more here), finding free clothes and... Continue Reading →

Pandemic on Pause

Dear Reader, The very last time that I was on an airplane was pre-pandemic on my solo adventure to Colombia (more here). Sitting in an airport, writing to you now, I can’t help but sigh and think to myself — “my, how things have changed.” Unlike my trip to Colombia, my flight this time is... Continue Reading →

[Review] Boston Winery

Dear Reader, Wine in the U.S. is big business — a $220 billion industry to be more exact. While 90% of the wines produced in the U.S. come from California, it turns out that each and every U.S. state has at least one winery. While Boston is not known for its wine-growing abilities, the city is... Continue Reading →

Vermont’s Itty-Bitty Capital

Dear Reader, If you’re a fan of road trips, then you have probably already asked yourself on more than one occasion whether a particular spot is “worth the visit.” In my experience when a location is intriguing but there isn’t too much to do, then making a long rest stop can be just the right...

Burlington the Beautiful (Part 2)

Dear Reader, I was blown away by Burlington, Vermont. Who knew that this little city on a lake has so much to offer? In part 1 of this post (here), I described some of the aspects that make Burlington stand out. In this post, I have listed a few noteworthy observations about the city that... Continue Reading →

Burlington the Beautiful (Part 1)

Dear Reader, On a weekend trip up north, my boyfriend and I stopped at a busy diner in Nashua, New Hampshire for lunch. Realizing that we were from out of town, the server asked us where we were headed. When we told her that we were destined for Vermont and more specifically Burlington, her eyelids...
