A perfect day in Miami spans parks, foodie perks, art deco and a video game music concert.
The Washington Monument is beautiful, and striking, the epitome of elegant simplicity and also illustrative that we have not yet reached our ideals. Our ambitions larger than our capabilities, we yearn to grow, to learn, to become better.
A bench is an invitation to become one with it for a while, to sit and be still in your surroundings, and let nature and the world flow around you.
In Albuquerque for a wedding, we wanted to eat somewhere really, really unique and local. Frontier Restaurant scratched that itch.
Avocado toast wasn’t having its best moment when I ordered it on a train recently. But it brought to mind Hitchcock movie scenes from dining cars.
A search for a down-home Indian restaurant in Edinburgh helped me discover a new dish (for me): Kathmandu Chicken Tikka, with lentils. Yum!
One less twirl of the curling iron, one less email, one less change of clothes discarded for being wrong-wrong-wrong – and I’d have caught that 7:27 a.m. train.
We love all kinds of cuisine here at Glover Gardens, from fancy French food to farmers’ market fare and everything in between – as long as it is fab (translated as tasty, made well and served graciously). Add in fun and creativity and it’s a real winner. Slim Goodies Diner in New Orleans is all that – fab food in a fun ambience that’s served with personality.
January dreaming and restaurant rave: memories of a perfect lunch at L’Escargot Montorgueil on a warm summer day during an anniversary trip to Paris
Fierro Argentine Grill is a very casual, very chill outdoor eatery, but the service is 4-star. So is the food. And the relaxed outdoor seating and ambiance is a plus, making you feel like everything is ok and you could sit there all afternoon and just enjoy life.
These images are from a photo safari I undertook this week in Jefferson, Colorado, in between intense empathy and hand-wringing.
Tom-Erik and his wife Anne-Grethe ooze gracious Norwegian hospitality, making you feel as welcome and easy as a summer sunset at their home in Kongsberg.
Boreas Pass in central Colorado is scenic, lovely, unspoiled and a call from nature to join her.
Paris always has a surprise in store for you. Walking in this city at night is the best way to lasso that travel serendipity that happens when you don’t have a plan but are open to whatever comes along.
Still reminiscing about Paris, I have a little Glover Gardens Makes the Bigtime story for you, set at Bistro des Augustins in the City of Lights.
