A look back on a fall travel tradition – Amesbury, Massachusetts

It’s just so cold and blustery and blah here that all I can accomplish today is hiding under blankets and reflecting on warmer days of the past. While I do get great joy out of stick my freezing feet onto unsuspecting passer-by that can only get me so far. Instead, I look back to cheery fall and remember the encounter I had in northern Massachusetts on a kitschy and charming farm. Apple picking is so. New. England. That is, if you’re a girlfriend who spends too much time on Pinterest…

A clueless walk around London’s art scene

I don’t know the difference between a Monet and Matisse. Alright I do a little, but go with it. While in London I was on complete sensory overload and was trying to keep my mind distracted from the bitter cold. Of course I visited the museum and got an eye-full of naked marble statues, but right out on the streets is where some of the city’s hidden creative jewels lie. Sometimes I didn’t know what I was looking for, others popped right out of the scenery like magic. Art is…

Preview of my dream coming true: Mazatlan, Mexico

I can’t believe it took me this long to visit our neighbors south of the border. Being an East Coast native I assumed I’d be visiting Cancun or Playa del Carmen on my first adventure, but instead I was assigned to Mazatlan. Located in Sinaloa, this city is hugged by a fantastic, warm ocean and some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. They had a field day making fun of my Spain accent, yes ha ha laugh it up I know I sound like I have marbles in my mouth. Besides that though, like seriously, Mexico is wonderful. All those rumors were laid to rest…

New York City, An Old Friend: Hotel Americano Review

The city is well-known to me as I’ve visited a dozen times in my life, but it’s also my crazy, insane, unpredictable friend. Like that one you keep from college who’s still taking tequila shots and waking up next to strangers. It’s hilarious to catch up, hear their stories and maybe even indulge the old lifestyle a little, but man am I exhausted by the end and ready to go home. I covered The New York Times travel show last weekend for In The Know Traveler and was able to…
