Traveling


It’s hard to resist the orange rooftops reflected in the crystal clear blue waters of the Adriatic Sea along the Croatian coast. Last summer, I had the pleasure of visiting Croatia after my trip to Sweden and I fell head over heels for the country. My sister and I flew into Croatia from Stockholm and met the rest of our family for the start of our multigenerational trip...

Right along the banks of the St. Croix River in Minnesota lies a small town named Stillwater. Known as the “Birthplace of Minnesota” and having been named one of the prettiest little towns in America, I had a feeling I would be instantly charmed by Stillwater. Upon arriving, I was greeted with rolling hills (yes, in the midwest!) and inviting small streets woven throughout the...

This post was originally published on IHG’s blog. The Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, One World Trade Center…all of offer exceptional views of NYC, but only with some major trade-offs.

Along the coast in the Dalmatia region of Croatia sits a town called Šibenik (pronounced shi-beh-nick). With 42,000 inhabitants, it’s about the same size as Dubrovnik but much less popular. Being the big city that it is and the oldest native Croatian city on the Adriatic Sea, you would think it would be more well-known. It was even the first city in Croatia to have electricity! We stopped...

After the twists and turns through the mountains and the final stretch along the narrow dirt road, we finally saw the hearts and knew we had arrived at the Romantic RiverSong Bed and Breakfast for our much anticipated mountain retreat. This B&B is a Select Registry property tucked away along the edge of Estes Park, Colorado and is cloaked in the kind of serenity that you can imagine...

A peaceful girlfriends getaway up in the mountains was just what Alyssa and I needed in the middle of a busy week. We drove up to Estes Park along the windy mountain roads as we caught up on the past month of her trip to Australia and my visit to California for the Women in Travel Summit. Perched upon a hill overlooking the Rocky Mountains...
