Sparkling Caves and Baby Dragons in Slovenia

Postojna Caves My underground journey began with an open-air train ride.

The train took me 2 kilometers into the Postojna Caves. Although it was summer, the caves were chilly. They maintain a temperature of 8-10 degrees Celsius year round. The air was crisp and fresh as I...

Waiting in the crisp Arctic morning air, my breath visible despite it being June, I could see the tour van driving towards the guesthouse that I was staying in. This was the start of an amazing day in Svalbard. I had wanted to go dog sledding for a long time. Probably because it is so different to anything that I had grown up with in...

With So Much to See and Do When I last visited London, I spent hours trying to put together the...

Driving into Tuscan/Umbrian Culture

Tuscany and Umbria In all of Italy, Tuscany and Umbria are tops in my book. Friends who’ve visited all tell me they love it and although I normally don’t follow the herd, I have to admit I love it too. To me, Toscana and Umbro epitomize the Italy that travelers’ dream about – with all the intact medieval architecture and towering cyprus-lined lanes, plus wine and the flavors of delectable food. As with any trip time is limited,...

The cook and foodie side of me couldn’t wait to discover a new cuisine, and perhaps add some recipes to my repertoire. Fish and...
