Flâneur: one who strolls aimlessly and enjoyably​, experiencing life!

Travelers tend to rush from one destination to another with camera in hand. Taking pictures of ourselves (I’m utterly guilty of the constant selfie). Often in our quest, we forget to actually live in the moment. Remiss in what we are failing to see. The people, not only the place, the neighborhood, not just the … More Flâneur: one who strolls aimlessly and enjoyably​, experiencing life!

Two thousand six hundred and forty meters above sea level. Bogotá

Sprawling capital. High altitude, museums, art, culture and gracious people. Bogotá has been on my list for quite some time. With only thirty-two hours I had to prioritize my options. I knew I had to visit Monserrate. Not giving a second thought to the altitude I arrived by 10:15 am and secured my ticket for … More Two thousand six hundred and forty meters above sea level. Bogotá

Day 1: after a three-hour … More I went for the culture and obsessed over the food…how this vegetarian navigated Barcelona!

Oh the places I went…the year in review!

January started off in Heidelberg Germany. Breath-taking, medieval and oh so cold. The architecture is as interesting as the food scene. For every foodie a dinner at the Scharff’s Schlossweinstube located within the Heidelberg Castle walls is a must night out! February took me to a wedding in Cabo! Bringing family, friends and fun together. … More Oh the places I went…the year in review!

When in Rome…take the train to Umbria!

Early November and the tourists are sparse. Beautiful sunny afternoons leading to cool evenings. The perfect time to wander, shop, and sight see in Rome! But I wanted to do something impulsive. Out of the ordinary. Luckily I was traveling with my friend Gina. She always brings abundant willingness, enthusiasm and the language skills all … More When in Rome…take the train to Umbria!
