Thanks to Visit Philly, I was lucky enough to attend a press dinner at Noord Eetcafe in Philadelphia last week. Noord Eetcafe, a BYOB, is in the heart of East Passyunk’s bustling restaurant scene, boasting homemade Dutch cuisine. Located on the corner of 11th and Tasker

I recently had the opportunity to attend a press luncheon and presentation by the States of Bavaria and Baden–Württemberg and the German National Tourist Office. The luncheon was held in Philadelphia at the award-winning steakhouse, Ocean Prime. The upscale chain is known for its sophisticated décor,

I arrived in Mexico City on a beautiful March day with a light breeze and 75-degree weather. You can’t ask for a better day. The St. Regis offers a car service from the airport, which is convenient and worth the money. Uber is also an option for transportation throughout

I just arrived back to the cold after spending a month in the beautiful area of Jupiter, Fla. I am the proud daughter of what many people would call “snowbirds,” meaning my parents spend half of the year in New Jersey and then flee to Florida

For the past 10 years or so, ever since our younger daughter started college at Chicago's Loyola University and our older daughter began working in the Windy City, my husband and I have managed to visit at least a couple of times a year. We

Despite not being a golfer or caring much about golf, I really enjoyed my time at last year’s Chicago Golf Show. A few weeks ago I had yet another great time at the event. The 34th Chicago Golf Show is one of the largest golf shows

I had the recent pleasure of joining innovative hotel company Benchmark for a memorable luncheon at The Modern.  The French/New American restaurant, located next to the Museum of Modern Art, is an incredible feat of architecture and design. It’s chic, modern vibe provided the perfect backdrop for a

Some weekends are for chores, some are for catching up with friends. This past weekend, we went to New York City for a civilized brunch at the Russian Tea Room and a matinee showing of La Traviata at the Metropolitan Opera. I had been inside the

Whenever I think back on my cruising experiences, inevitably I recall the fascinating ports we visited and the historic sites encountered. But added to those mental snapshots of time on shore come images of the host of activities I enjoyed on the ships themselves. In

I arrived in Seattle on a cloudy Sunday morning in January. The rain was holding up, and I made it from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to the Grand Hyatt Seattle in my rental car from Sixt Rent a Car in record time, and luckily they upgraded

Two weeks ago my husband and I headed to Chicago to visit family. We always look forward to flying out of Portland International Airport because we always find it clean, bright and relatively uncongested at any time of the day. Security lines move swiftly and
