5 Ways To Conquer Post Vacation Blues

We’ve all been there.  You spend weeks planning a much needed vacation to your dream destination and in the blink of an eye, it’s over.  The post vacation blues set in.  Post travel depression is a very real thing compounded if you are returning to a mediocre job or any other less than perfect things going on in your life. While we travel, we are often our best versions of ourselves.  We are happy, relaxed, (this can be debated depending on what you are doing and where you are) and away from the mundane tasks of…

Going To Paris? Rent An Apartment With Paris For Rent

  Are you planning a Paris Vacation? Sure you could book a hotel in Paris, but why not feel like a local and book a Paris apartment rental? I did just that on my last trip to Paris. Deciding which agency to book with was not easy, but after looking at various rentals through a number of agencies, I went with Paris For Rent.  I am a die hard Rick Steves fan and because his Paris guidebook recommends Paris for Rent, I was sold.  After all who can you trust for great travel info than the master himself? Why Paris…

Ahnapee Brewery in Algoma Wisconsin-The Coolest 2 Car Garage In Town!

Love craft beer? I must admit that while I LOVE wine, I do enjoy dabbling in trying different craft beers from time to time. We’ve come a long way from the days where you basically had a handful of choices when it comes to beer.  Most of it tasted the same (okay, kind of), but as far as originality, there was little. Beer brewing is actually becoming an art form and the brew-master has become an artist using ingredients as his (or her) paints. Recently hubby and I spent the day in Kewaunee and Algoma, Wisconsin.  I…

My Top 5 Things To Do In Chicago

    I love Chicago!  There’s tons of stuff to do and see, It’s easily accessible to me,  and mostly I feel like a different person when I’m there.  Something about the big city appeals to me.  I guess it’s the fast pace of life and the fact that I can strap on my most comfy shoes and walk all over the center of the city. After all the best way to explore a city is on foot. So for any of you that have never been to…

5 Reasons To Visit the Civil War Museum In Kenosha Wisconsin

Wisconsin Getaways- Chateau De Pere in De Pere, Wisconsin

Weekend getaways Chateau De Pere De Pere, Wisconsin My hubby is always full of surprises.  This past weekend to celebrate our 24th Anniversary he told me to pack a bag  after I came home from work Friday, we were heading to an undisclosed location for the night. After some questions about what to pack we headed off north. Now you all know my obsession for all things French right?   The only hint he would give me was that our getaway had a French theme.  So imagine my happiness when we arrived after a 45 minute drive to Chateau De Pere…

The Women In Travel Summit WITS Was A Game Changer

I am officially dealing with a WITS hangover! For the most part, us bloggers have kind of a lonely life.  What I mean by that is that you spend a huge chunk of your time sitting in front of your computer and stare at a screen. Sure, you engage on social media but there is little face to face contact with your tribe- those fellow bloggers that seem to be the only people who truly understand your work. We all have family members and friends who are clueless about what we are doing.  They ask “what is this blog…

Explore Wisconsin-North Point Lighthouse Milwaukee

Discover Wisconsin! With the arrival of Spring comes a yearning to get out and explore.  So last weekend was the perfect time to begin my Wisconsin adventure.  I have made it my mission to travel around Wisconsin and discover places and things to do that are right in my backyard and write about them to promote Wisconsin travel.  There are so many places, natural, cultural, historical, and downright plain interesting to see and do in my home state.  I want to share my discoveries, some lessor known, and some well known, to those of you who may not be familiar…
