GTGL Snippets: The Igloos at 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar

The igloos at 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar is one of the most popular things to do in New York City during the wintertime. This past December, I finally got to go with some of my friends. The cocktails were great; the views, better; the holiday air was festive; and the company made the experience unforgettably beautiful.

A "Hygge" Dinner at Kadeau, Copenhagen

My unique experience at Kadeau is that hygge experience - in the sense that "I'm about to devour some very fine food, but it feels like it's winter at my own dream cottage up in the mountains and I'm about to snuggle up next to the fireplace, hot tea in hand, audible book ready to play" sort of feeling. Fine and refined but casual and cozy.

GTGL Snippets: Inner Harbor, Baltimore, Maryland, USA

I have to say, I was inspired by the previous post, City Touring Challenges and How to Overcome Them. So, I thought I would share this photo from the largest independent city in the United States, Baltimore in Maryland. 

In this photo, you'll see the National Aquarium and the Lightship 116 Chesapeake, one of the Historic Ships in Baltimore docked in the Inner Harbor, taken from none other than the USS Constellation.

City Touring Challenges and How to Overcome Them

It took us a year after the stroke to take our first trip by plane. It’s gotten manageable since with all the tricks we’ve developed. In 2014, we tackled NYC, and there we identified some of the challenges we now have with our new situation. But, in 2015, we did Boston, and you bet your passport we’ve learned how to overcome these challenges.

GTGL Snippets: Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Mother's Day 2013 at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. That year, instead of my husband doing the usual and giving me a bouquet, I opted for him to take me to see the flowers bloom.

Girls Just Wanna Have... Paris

I’ve just returned from my two week extravaganza trip in Paris. My girlfriend and I packed our bags together - she picked the clothes, and I picked our makeup - and we set off to Paris.
