‘Must see’s in Bayona/Galicia

‘Must see’s in Bayona/Galicia
Many visitors to Galicia, Spain’s northern province, probably head straight for Santiago de Compostela, the world famous cathedral of the Apostle and a glimpse of what the Camino de Santiago is all about. But, there is a lot more to do and to see and a trip south/west to Vigo and Bayona, close to the border with Portugal, should be included.

I’m Going to Steamboat Springs, CO – Join Me As I Blog About the Trip!

My family and I are headed to Steamboat Springs, Colorado for a week in a few days. I am so excited about the trip for a number of reasons. For one, I have never been there and have heard some great things about the area. Two, I am looking forward to just getting away from the daily life here in Denver and seeing something new. We are staying at a resort there and actually have no real plans. From the sounds of it, we could stay at the resort all week long and never leave. There are plenty of activities...

New Year’s Resolutions: 10 Things I Will See in Seattle This Year

When you live in Seattle, you have your favorite neighborhood hangouts.  They may not be special to anyone but yourself, and sometimes that suits you just fine. As a writer about Seattle, I try to share the big well-known attractions with you, as well as to give you a glimpse into some of the often over-looked, yet still special, spots.  It forces me to get out of my comfort zone, explore new places, and try new things. And that’s a lot of fun! As I was making a list of things to write...
