During a recent visit to Chicago, I stopped by the Christkindmarket, a traditional German Christmas market. It features authentic German food, drinks and items, including many imported straight from Germany.

Where do I even begin? There are tons of words I could use to describe this vegan, west-coast restaurant, but I will try to boil it down to one — amazing.

The best… Continue reading Lake George Is Paradise for a Girlfriends Getaway

Waiting at the gate in Newark. I can get bored easily, so it’s not surprising that I love traveling — exploring new places, meeting new people, having new experiences. Maybe I should have named this website, “Have Laptop, Will Travel.” Seriously. It’s just so expensive to travel, that I don’t get to do it nearly… Continue reading Off to Disney World!
Rarely do I have the urge to immediately come back to my hotel room and write about what I ate or drank, but seriously this one drink tonight at the Loews in Atlanta — ahhhmazing!
