A Mother & Daughter Wine Tasting in Spain

A Mother & Daughter Wine Tasting in Spain
This October I went on a mother/daughter wine and culinary trip to the Basque Country of Spain. My mom and I had never been to Spain together and thought this trip would be perfect for us because it contained two very important things... wine and food . First off, flying is not on my list of favorite things to do. However, I do love spending time with my Mom and drinking wine. So, I jumped on an airplane for what I knew would be a trip filled with new and wonderful experiences.  Since this was a wine and culinary tour there wasn’t the rush of adventure as in zip lining or wildlife safari’s - the adventure for me was seeing a new place with my mom, trying new foods and seeing the wine making process. My favorite thing that we did was in San Sebastián; a really fun cooking class where...

Let's Go to Greece

Let's Go to Greece
My son, Benjamin, and I are so excited to be landing in Greece this summer and we are inviting you to join us on our Escorted Family Adventure in the Peloponnese & Cyclades this August 17-30th! We are gathering a small group of like-minded, adventurous families to climb to hill-top temples with us, hike through river canyons, and explore the white-washed island streets. After Benjamin completed a Greek Mythology unit in his 5th grade class, we decided now is the perfect time to visit the mythical birthplace of our favorite gods: Athena, Apollo and Artemis. We can’t wait to walk in the actual places where many of these tales were said to take place. It certainly helps that the ancient sites are adjacent to the lovely Aegean Sea where we can swim in the crystal water and relax on the warm sands. Plus the Greek food is legendary! We will all...

Walks and Wines of Geneva Region, Switzerland

We started our journey of Switzerland walking and "wining" our way through the more urbane French-speaking region of Lake Geneva.  In a well planned and orchestrated itinerary, we moved easily through the countryside from Geneva, to Lausanne and Montreux  by train, boat, walking and bicycle. Sharing 95% of its borders with France, the seat of many international organizations, and a favorite respite and creative hangout for Freddy Mecury, Phil Collins, David Bowie, Audrey Hepburn, and many other celebrities and lesser known sophisticates, the Geneva region has it all. We walked the cobblestone streets of the old towns and hit several farmer's markets where we stocked up on cheese, olives, wine and fresh baked goods for our afternoon appetizers or lunches on the train. Historically, Geneva was a strategic transport and trade route used by the Romans, and later controled by the Savoys who built a series of baronies and castellanies throughout this part...

Switzerland Through The Front Door

Traveling through "the front door" of Switzerland we've been staying in the finest 5* hotels, but it's not just about the luxe, it's literally a window into the history, the landscape and the finest people who love to share their beautiful country. For 10 days we have ventured from the French speaking Geneva region, into the German-Swiss Berner Oberland and Valais regions of the Alps, then south to the warmer Mediterranean climes of Italian speaking Ticino province. You get an idea of just how spectacular the Swiss landscape is from the views of our rooms at the amazing hotels we've been staying in and the scenic trains from region to region (with our Swiss passes, of course). The pics in this blog are all taken of the hotels, or from the inside of our rooms looking out! Like anywhere in the world, careful choice of accommodations and rooms can be an integral part of...
