Travel & Wine Country

Whether it’s weekend getaways in the California Wine Country or a long European vacation, I love to travel. And I like to share my favorite places to eat, drink, sleep, shop and have fun here on my travel page.

You will find links to travel posts I have written over the years, organized by location.

Bon Voyage!

    You have a very interesting website. I love your before and after pictures from Tria Lazer. I just found out about this lazer and my search engine found your pictures. It looks like a great home tool!
    My weekly radio show is Aging Info Radio for boomers and seniors aging but not growing old. I invite guests on weekly and my show airs out of Chicagoland and streams live on the web. Maybe we should create a late spring Travel show. Email me if you have any interest in being my guest to talk about upcoming summer travel.
    Thank you,
    Sue Zawacki, President Founder & Show Host
