Quebec winter ice hotel

When you think of Quebec winter and snow, you normally think of a big comfy lodge with a couch you can sink into, a big fireplace, hot toddy, and lots of flannel. But I don’t like to do the expected, so instead of staying in a big cozy lodge for my winter adventures in Quebec, […]

As I was about to nod off to sleep, I heard it. “Owwoooooo”. A howl that made the little hairs on the back of my neck stand up at attention. Soon after, I heard another howl join in, and then another. It was a howling chorus – and it was happening right outside my window. […]

class reunion ideas

The year was 1988. We had big hair…lots of hair. I used to spend an hour each morning curling my already permed hair into even tighter little curls with a curling iron the size of my pinky finger. I really did want to be ‘Baby’ from Dirty Dancing even though I had stick straight hair. […]

I walked down the long stone walkway, full of anticipation. The landscape was barren and dry, and the building in front of me was simple and brown blending in like camouflage. I felt like a giddy child overflowing with excitement about what was to come. I opened the heavy wooden door and my whole world […]

Best beds

This is the time of year where I tell you how thankful I am for beds, but this year is a little different. It’s different because in this list of beds I get include MY bed…and ultimately, my home! If you missed the news, after 11 years of being nomadic without a home, or even […]

Once upon a time a bored girl went chasing rabbits in Colorado. Her curiosity and penchant for adventure led her into a mountainous world of intriguing people, mesmerizing views, and unusual dimensions.

As I drove by the sign that read Acadia National Park with an arrow pointing left, I did have a little pang of indecision for a moment. I knew Acadia is where everyone goes when they do a Maine Road Trip, but it was precisely that reason why I didn’t turn left. I only had […]

Maine sporting camp

“I suggest that you go to a sporting camp,” Charlene, a Maine native, said to me as I was getting advice on what to do on my trip in Maine. “Okay….” I said with a little hesitation wondering to myself if I should know what a sporting camp was. Was it a place to play […]

I drive my car onto the big grass lawn, park, get my luggage, roll it out onto the ‘tarmac’ (which is a pier), and the pilot says “Slide on into the seat on the right and put on that headset.” Now this is how I like to do air travel; no parking issues, no check-in […]
