Boston is beautiful.

There is also a lot to see, do, and experience in this dynamic city.  If you only have a short time to explore, perhaps my Top 7 list will help you narrow it down.

Pants! #7DayStretch

Yep, this post is all about pants.  Specifically, one pair of amazing pants.

I was excited when prAna asked me to participate in their #7DayStretch challenge because I tried out their clothes for travel and loved them.

PrAna’s clothes are comfortable, practical, and fashionable, especially for More >

Boston has just made the very small list of places I plan to keep visiting.

There are so many cities I want to explore that I usually do not return to a place even if I enjoy it.

I take it all in.  And then I move on, travel stories and photos as my souvenirs.

I only visited the Bangalore Palace because it was close, and so many people kept telling me I had to see it.  I usually get bored after a short time exploring historical fancy homes of rich people.  The Bangalore Palace is different.  It immediately captured my photographer eye, and I spent hours More >

I had never desired to travel to India.

From what I have heard from others, India can be a tough place to travel, even for those who have spent time in developing countries.

But you never know what opportunity may come your way.

And when the opportunity to attend a training class in Bengaluru More >

Twitter, the kindness of strangers, and passion for food led me to one of the my most memorable travel experiences ever.

With no time to plan, I sent an abrupt “Does anyone know anyone in Bangalore” tweet to my followers.  Karthik responded and emailed me the names of a couple of contacts who More >

El Yunque is a short drive from where I am staying in Fajardo. I only had a half-day to explore, so I will return during my next trip to Puerto Rico. I went with my local “guide” Robb (aka in-case-of-emergency family member to contact for iguana situations and anything More >

Rease warned me that Padfoot loves to chase iguanas.  I just didn’t expect to have to deal with an iguana situation my first day alone.  Luckily, it was nothing compared to iguanapocalypse (seriously, the photos in Rease’s post are terrifying), but it was a bit unsettling and brought out the More >

A glimpse of Bend

Bend

With long days snowboarding at Mt Bachelor, I didn’t get to see a lot of Bend. But I was impressed by what I did see.

Bend is small, cute, and surrounded by gorgeous landscapes. It has a laidback vibe, and people seem down-to-earth and friendly.

The first evening in town, we stumbled upon a More >
