Cinque Terre: Friday Fun Day!

I was talking with my friend Fanny, a few weeks ago. I was telling her that I couldn’t make it to an appointment we had because I would be in Tenerife. “Oh you’re taking a vacation!” she said. “No, I’m just going to work from there for a week. For a change…” She looked at […]

How to do downtown Barcelona in 2017

Annecy, Venice in the Alps

Applecross: the hidden gem of the Scottish Highlands

As we were enjoying a scrumptious breakfast at Catherine’s table in our beautiful BnB in Thrumster, we shared our road map with a lovely couple whom was sitting at the table. As soon as I mentioned Applecross, the man’s face lit up. “It’s such a beautiful place, you’re going to love it there. Although… which […]
