I have a trip coming up, to Venice, and I’ve never been there. I’m doing a lot of research and I’ve written an article about women’s travel wear. I’m still a bit of a wreck from surgery, but I get better and better each day. Read my article, The Best Sites for Women’s Travel Wear.

Seattle: Proof of Spring

April 18, 2009

daffodil Hi there.

It’s spring. Here is the proof! Go to Ivar’s on Lake Union. Yum.

Read about Cheap Dates in Seattle. I have so much more to say, so I’ll have to write another Cheap Dates.

Seattle: Baby Boomer Travel Photo – Aix-en-Provence Eating Croque Monsieur

April 5, 2009

favorite-hat
I am in Seattle, sitting at my computer, cold.

And, then I see this old picture of me (pink hat) and two pals. It reminds me that somewhere in time, I am smiling and warm and happy-go-lucky or holly-go-lightly or …. ok, I’ll stop rambling.

We were having lunch in Aix-en-Provence. (About 4 years ago.) I was eating a croque-monsieur sandwich because I knew what it was. I always ordered the same few things. Next time I will branch out into eating a croque-madame.

Anyway, this photo makes me happy. It reminds me of Paul Simon’s song “KODACHROME”. Funny this.

Los Angeles: Baby Boomer Travel – Maybe There is Happiness in LA

March 22, 2009

Happiness in Los Angeles resides in a Getty Museum.

I hope to see the other Getty Spectacular tomorrow if our day fits the plan.

The Degas pastel (above) was one of my daughter’s favorite pieces. Good taste, for sure.

Read my feelings about
Getty Center.

Tomorrow we will probably see the Getty Villa or go to the beach or create something California Cool in happy-go-lucky beatnik flip-flops….and hopefully, we will find a way to fit in some tasty Pink’s hotdogs!

Sydney: Guided Bus Tour

March 5, 2009

These shots are from our bus tour the other day, and I can’t remember what I’ve already put online. Forgive the repeats.

I am blogging from a Sydney hotel and the wifi costs by the minute. I have to be quick.

The Rocks area of Sydney was a rundown slum by the water. It’s a historic area where the colony first started. “The Rocks” now has tons of upscale restaurants and shops.

It seems like there is always another brilliant beach around every turn.

I wanted to stop in the Paddington area (Oxford Street) of Sydney. It’s like Sydney’s answer to Melrose.
