I live in a great city and we are spoiled with great offerings from culinary world, amazing wine, culture and extraordinary landscapes.
Weekend getaways include wine country, Tahoe and Yosemite and the McCloud River in Northern CA.
But I also love more distant travel. Favorite cities so far: Vancouver, Sydney, Rome, Santorini. I loved touring Portugal for 2 weeks. Also fell in with Croatia. We frequent Puerto Vallarta often as it has a very European feel. While I do love great cities, I equally love the countryside for a little slower pace (France, Italy).
I'm very much looking forward to a trip this fall to the UK, Austria, Slovakia (meeting my family for the 1st time!) and Hungary.
I'm eager (yet nervous) to try AirBNB, but I love more of a home setting when traveling. I've used (website hidden) and (website hidden), but very impressed so far with AirBNB. Fingers crossed!
