Chocolate, Musica y Oaxaca

Featured Song:   When my best friend Leah informed me that her whole family was going to be moving to Oaxaca and would be gone for half the year, my gut reaction was a selfish bit of sadness. Leah is like a sister to me, and not seeing her, her partner Jonah, and her two beautiful […]

Western Mass Winter Getaway

Featured Song:   Winters in Albany can get a little draining to say the least. Because it is a small city, we tend feel bored with all of our indoor fun options come our second or third cold month. Driving long distances in the winter is a risk with the snow, which also means we […]

Local Romantic Birthday Adventure

Featured Song:   I love traveling, but Gaetano has more complicated feelings about it. A comfortable vacation for Gaetano often looks like being in town and doing the cozy things he loves. So, instead of planning some elaborate vacation for Gaetano’s 30th birthday, like I would want to do on a 3 day weekend, I […]

Winter Vacation in Boston

New Year’s In Isabela, Puerto Rico

Featured Song:   As a upstate NY born and raised Puerto Rican, visiting Puerto Rico is not just about vacationing.

Mother’s Day In Albany

Featured Song:   I moved to Albany, NY about six years ago from Philadelphia, where the cuisine is pretty much a vegan dream (and we will get to Philly in later posts). Moving to Albany, on the other hand, has been a bit of a challenge for a vegan foodie, but this Mother’s Day we […]

Albuquerque and Flamenco

Featured Song: We have stopped through Albuquerque several times on tours, often after long drives through the desert, with another long drive ahead of us. Sadly, we never had time to really get to know this beautiful place. Thankfully, this Spring’s flamenco study and family vacation allowed us a full week steeped in Nuevo Mexico […]
