    From Sea Cliffs to Ski Trips, Anatomie has got you covered!

    I love nice things, especially nice clothes. But, frequent travel and nice clothes don’t always go well together. Well, that was until I was introduced to Anatomie.

    The Anatomie collection draws inspiration from the most highly-regarded European fashion houses. Yes indeed, it’s gorgeous. But, for the frequent traveler like me, it’s comfortable, functional fashion. It is the perfect blend of comfort and style. Wearing Anatomie, not only do I look and feel good when I leave the house but upon arrival at my final destination.

    Adventure, the Quirky & Five Star Cuisine, Hocking Hills Ohio has something for everyone!

    No matter where we go we always find something that each of us loves. Rick tends to be the more adventurous of the two, jumping out of planes, zip lining or even participating in Zestfest’s “Loli-Lick-a-thon, the hottest lick on a stick. Sandi on the other hand gravitates towards the serene: like a day at the spa, a leisurely stroll down Main Street or spending the afternoon in the kitchen with a favorite local chef! Hocking Hills, Ohio has Adventure, the Quirky & Five Star Cuisine, a little something for everyone! They had plenty to entertain the adventurer in Rick and feed the soul of Sandi!

    7 Awesome Free Travel Apps

    Today’s smartphone technology makes travel so much more fun and easy. It’s hard to imagine how we ever got by without it.

But as someone who travels for a living the first thing I did before making a call or transferring my contacts was to install my favorite travel apps – all of which […]

  • Celebrating #CabernetDay with a 2008 Aurielle Cabernet Sauvignon

    Celebrating #CabernetDay with a 2008 Aurielle Cabernet Sauvignon

    This year I’m celebrating #CabernetDay with a 2008 Aurielle Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a old adage that wine gets better with age. The Aurielle is a higher end Napa Valley wine that if cellared for a few years will totally ROCK!   However, I have neither the patience nor discipline to wait for a wine to peak so I uncorked the bottle and poured it into a decanter. Just letting the wine breathe for about 20 minutes was a remarkable act of self-restraint on […]

    After 8 ½ hours in the air (add to that long TSA lines and weather delays) you want to know that you’ll at some point soon after your arrival, have a clean and comfortable bed awaiting you.

    Just a short cab ride from the airport was our host in Barcelona, the AC Marriott. We have stayed at Marriott brand hotels throughout the United States, but never in Europe. This was our first experience with AC Hotels by Marriott.

    Carnival Cruise Lines conspired with Food Network megastar, Guy Fieri, to open an instantly addictive eatery called Guy’s Burger Joint on the lido deck of the Carnival Sunshine. Though many cruisers just ask for a plain burger and some fries before heading over to the radical toppings bar where they create their idea of the perfect burger, there is a menu of Guy’s signature burgers that should not be ignored. During our recent Mediterranean cruise, Rick had the opportunity to […]
