I usually run along the Hudson River pathway but sometimes I’ll start or end on Riverside Drive. I started spotting a few interesting things along Riverside Drive recently so I decided to walk about 50 blocks from the beginning of Riverside Drive (around 63rd Street) to Morningside Heights (where I live) and see what I could see. Here’s what I found… At the base of … Continue reading A Walk Along Riverside Drive
Since I’ve moved and resettled again, I’ve been looking to make up for my lost trip to Reykjavik. Two nights ago I was thinking about the cities that I could easily visit in the US for a weekend and see most (or all) of it and Denver, Colorado came to mind. The company I work for just opened a studio there, so I could visit … Continue reading Itching to Travel Again!
I’m back from my hiatus! I’m all moved and closed and own my apartment so life is settling down a bit. It was a little hectic there for a moment. Did you miss me?

But … Continue reading When You Have a Layover in Rome (Italy)
I was reminded of my trip to Washington, DC – this nation’s once-great capital (sarcasm! sort of, not really!) – in spring 2016 when I saw an Instagram/Travel Blogger friend of mine posting on IG about being there. The first thing I thought was, “Oh, you have to tell her to go to Off the Record!” so I did. And then I thought I’d write … Continue reading A Place to Drink to End of Democracy (Washington, DC)
When I going to New Orleans in 2015, I knew I’d have a lot of time by myself since my friend was going to be there on business and having to work most of the time during the day. But being the super capable solo traveler that I am, this was a feature, not a bug (as the kids say these days). I Googled yoga … Continue reading Working Out on Holiday (New Orleans, LA)
