The best of Barbados

"Ah, but those aren't real islands, with real flavor," my cab driver replied, when he asked where else I'd visited in the region. "Barbados, this is the real Caribbean." I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived in Barbados, other than sunshine and...

Barbados: on video!

It's been a while since I took a solo trip--especially to a super romantic island! Even though I would have loved to visit Barbados with David, there was still PLENTY to enjoy on my own: I basically read Gone with the Wind in the sunshine the entire...

A weekend at Wilderness Field Notes

A confession that is likely not very surprising: I'm not much of a camper. I quite enjoy those lovely modern amenities like mattresses and indoor plumbing, and I'm not very willing to sacrifice them. That said, I love being outside in clean, fresh...

A weekend in the Catskills

The true changing of the seasons is probably the #1 thing that I appreciate the most living on the East Coast: there's nothing like the incredible pop of colors blooming after a long gray winter or the turning of the leaves when the temperatures...

Gertie goes to the Catskills: on video!

We had the loveliest fall weekend away at Scribners Catskill Lodge near Hunter Mountain: full of stunning foliage, perfect-for-pugs hikes and delicious diner meals. It was Gertie's second hotel stay (she was SO tiny for her first one!), and she...
