I knew nothing about the history of Denver before I arrived in Colorado last October. I had no idea when the city was founded (in 1958!) or that once the newcomers settled down, they first established bars and right after that they built brothels making Market Street into Denver’s Red Light District. So, given the hundreds of years that Denver has been in existence, it … Continue reading The Best Ghost Signs in Denver, Colorado
If you’ve been reading here for a while then you know that I love cats no matter the size, and I’m an avid visitor of zoos while I’m traveling. I know zoos are controversial to some people – keeping animals out of their natural habitat and everything – but I’m a fan of zoos that let the animals live in habitats as natural as possible. … Continue reading All Big Cats (& other animals) at the Denver Zoo
I was a tad confused when I arrived at Denver International Airport last week and had to find my way to Downtown Denver. Signage wasn’t great, so I thought I’d write a how-to guide on here so you don’t wind up as confused as I was.

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!

Don’t get me wrong: I love going to see the Ruby Slippers and the Hope Diamond, but The Newseum was incredibly relevant when I visited in 2016 for the … Continue reading Extra, Extra: The Newseum (Washington, DC)
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)
I was looking through the photos on my phone recently and went all the back to 2015 to my photos from New Orleans. I’ve been writing for the past week about some of my experiences there because why not?! But I couldn’t find any photos of any of the delicious food I ate while I was there. UNTIL. Until I checked my phone that is … Continue reading What I Ate In: New Orleans, Louisiana
