Veteran journalist. Travel expert. Social media butterfly. Her travels began at a young age, thanks to parents who were eager to see the country. They spent their summers taking long road trips, first in a smelly station wagon and later in rented RVs. They stopped at national parks and monuments, battlefields and big cities. While they didn’t travel overseas much, her parents felt compelled to visit all 50 states.

To be honest, it seemed a little grungy to me and it didn't take me long to check it out (I much preferred the art galleries and shops at Makawao in Upcountry).

I didn't understand animal abuse, and the passages where the dogs suffer made me cry as I read before bed. But I did understand snow, a lot of snow - enough to know that I didn't want to be caught out in it

Video Friday: Flamenco at Las Tablas, Madrid
Madrid is a late night town - and I knew when I was there for a few days in September that I wanted to check out a flamenco show. Because I was there on my own, I wanted to find a place that wasn't too expensive and was within safe walking distance of my hotel, the Melia Madrid Princesa, in the mostly residential Arguelles neighborhood.
