I’m not sure if it’s true about an apple a day keeping the doctor away, but I do know a strong immunity wards off illness during my travels. Sure, traveling is fun, but it could also be the recipe for getting sick. Part of keeping my immunity strong is getting plenty of rest, enough exercise, and ensuring I’m feeding my body the right vitamins and nutrients. In a world of processed foods and as I get older, I’m more conscious of what...

Heat from the donut radiated through the to-go container and warmed my hands as I watched vanilla ice cream, strawberries and whipped topping melt together to create a divine sundae. How did it taste? Oh, boy. Sinfully delightful. I mean, a sundae anchored with a freshly-made donut? How could it not be delicious? Earlier this spring I was on a quest to discover Old School Virginia and that tasty memory of a heavenly donut and...
Viva Labs, formerly Everest Nutrition, is offering my readers a giveaway of a one month supply of Krill Oil and I’m tossing in a family of Sea-Monkeys! Why am I talking about Krill Oil when this is a travel blog?
My feet never knew life could be so good until I slipped on a pair of Naturalizer BZees Boardwalk shoes, the perfect travel shoe for my adventures.
There’s nothing I enjoy more than when a meal ends up being a dining adventure. I savored one of those foodie experiences last month in Virginia at The River and Rail, a southern Bistro in the historic South Roanoke neighborhood. It was one of those standout experiences where I witnessed the marrying of flavors and textures I didn’t know possible as they playfully danced on my taste buds.
I recently read an article about what’s on people’s travel bucket list and “researching family heritage” was one of the top activities. Rather than visiting a travel planning site during your first step in planning a family heritage trip, give Ancestry.com a try. You may be surprised by what you find.
Before attending Life@50+, I thought I knew what AARP was about. I thought it was an organization where members 50 years old or older flashed their AARP membership card at select businesses to receive AARP discounts. I read their informative magazine called AARP the Magazine and I know the organization looks after the interests of their membership.
Spend any amount of time in Ireland and you’ll discover the Irish are brilliant storytellers. Folklore and true tales have been passed through generations and if you have an open ear, hear these tales from your taxi driver, new pub mates, random folks on the street, and of course, your tour guide. I explored Southwest Ireland with Paddywagon Tours and discovered how they serve up a heaping bowl of fun storytelling to complement the Emerald Isle’s stunning scenery.
I dream of summer road tripping in cooler climes with Best Western. Why? Spring has sprung yet here in Southwest Florida high humidity causing frizzy-hair days and that why-did-I-shower-this-morning feeling have already kissed my unmanageable locks. The arrival of spring also means I can see the end of what’s been a very busy and intense winter season at my day job.
Having my iPhone lost or stolen while traveling would be one of the worst things I could imagine. I’ve come to rely on it for mapping, travel itineraries, contact database and of course, as a form of communication. Losing my camera would be the second worst thing. Well, guess what? There’s an app, and a Bluetooth-powered security tag called the nio, to prevent these things from happening.
Next month I’ll get a bigger taste of what’s in store for me in the next chapter of my life as I join thousands of others attending the AARP 2014 Life@50+ National Event and Expo in Boston, May 8 – 10.

Boosting my immunity and energy with AeroLife™ air-based smart nutrition system is fitting my goal of improving my health.
