In a city as large as Barcelona, four days is never long enough to explore. On our last full day, I decided a walk to the Parc de la Ciutadella would be a lovely way to see a less crowded, greener area of the city. And getting there meant taking a greenway past the Arc

In this post, we’ll take our last Vancouver walk together — this time with plenty of food and drink to make up for all of those burned calories at Stanley Park! My sojourn in Vancouver was made easier by having my two nights’ stay comped by Nightswapping, a travel app and website that sets up

Shh, don’t tell the fine folks who run the Wine Bloggers Conference (WBC), but some of us bloggers write about more than wine!
