See the World’s Smallest Window in Siena, Italy. Snapshot.

See the Smallest Window in the World There will be no sign, arrows or flashing lights to tell you that this is titled the smallest window in the world, but it exists in Siena’s quaint Piazza di Postierla. Situated on the building to the right of the square there will be a teeny, tiny shingled window right next to it’s duplicate […]

Experience Rose. Rabbit. Lie. in Las Vegas

Rose. Rabbit. Lie. Huh? Even the mention of these three little words to the locals in Las Vegas gave a facial response of a familiar, yet quizzical look. The name had been on the tips of everyone’s tongues in Sin City, but not one person had a valid explanation for exactly what it was. I […]

Tour an Insect Museum in Chiang Mai, Thailand

I am typically not a museum girl. Usually, I will sprint through them, snapping photos of all the informational placards to read at a later time, if ever. But, after eating bugs at Chiang Mai’s Sunday Night Walking market and being bitten by a dozen mosquitos, I figured it might be a good idea to go to an insect museum […]

Get Spooked at the Catacombs in Paris

There aren’t many things I would stand in line almost three hours for. In fact, the last time was over fifteen years ago to get an autographed copy of Anne Rice’s newest novel for my husband. And at that time there was no option for cell phone entertainment. At least while waiting to get spooked at the Catacombs in Paris […]

Put a Love Lock on Pont des Arts Bridge in Paris

In the beautiful Italian region of Cinque Terre, Peter and I strolled the Via Dell’Amore, also know as Lover’s Walk. Along this romantic seaside path there were padlocks attached to the chain linked fences, a place where couples could bring their own locks to secure their love. I didn’t have a padlock at the time, so we did not lock our love in Italy. That wasn’t […]

Witness Hong Kong’s Bucket List View at The Peak

I am a huge fan of going to one of the highest places in each city I visit to check out the view and to get my bearings. In Florence it was the top of the Duomo, Seattle the Space Needle and Georgia’s St. Simon’s was a lighthouse climb.  And almost every city has some sort of pinnacle […]

Visit an Offbeat Asian Market. Hong Kong’s Goldfish Market.

Hong Kong boasts a variety of markets and I went to just about every one of them. But, one stood out as a bucket list worthy event, probably because in all my travels I had never witnessed anything like it. The Goldfish Market is truly unique. And a bit quirky. Hong Kong’s Goldfish Market caters to […]

Ride A Cable Car & Take 268 steps to Tian Tan. Big Buddha.

It was 463 stairs to the top of the Duomo in Florence, 129 steps to the peak of the St. Simons Lighthouse in Georgia and now there are 268 stairs to reach Hong Kong's Tian Tan, the Big Buddha. Isn't Hong Kong known for the longest outdoor escalator in the World? Couldn't they figure this one out? Fine. […]

Take a Junk Boat Ride Through Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour

Seeing the Symphony of Lights was on my Hong Kong bucket list, mostly because I think light shows are cool, even without mind altering hallucinogens. Riding on a traditional Chinese junk boat in Asia also made the growing list. Boats are cool too. The famous Symphony of Lights laser show does a display that runs throughout the […]

My Biggest Regret on the Road to Hana in Maui

Driving the picturesque Road to Hana in Maui was a more than memorable adventure. Though, the choice to make the nine hour trek all in one day meant that certain sacrifices would have to be made. Never did I think that not jumping off a cliff would be called a sacrifice. My biggest regret on the Road to Hana […]
