Just landed in Italy

Posted by on Apr 28, 2017 in Italy | 2 comments

It’s been nearly a decade since I visited Italy, and I have to say I am so happy to be here! Yesterday I flew from Los Angeles to Switzerland, changed planes and then landed in Pisa. We were supposed to land in Florence  (I could not find my flight on the flight board at the airport, then realized that I needed to use the local vernacular, Firenze), but due to bad weather we got redirected tof Pisa–unfortunately, I did not get to see the leaning tower because they quickly  shuttled us onto a bus and drove us to the Florence Airport… I was pretty worn out upon arrival, by the time I got to the hotel here in Fiesole it was nearly midnight local time so I just went to sleep. They put me in a small cottage on the grounds, and it was wonderful to have my own little space. Little, indeed, because I forgot how small European hotel rooms are, even cottages! It was a delight to wake up this morning and see where I’m located in daylight. I’m in Fiesole, built on a hill by the Etruscans. Later, the Romans moved in and built Firenze in the valley. This area was almost abandoned after the Romans colonized the area in 1125,...

Sisters’ Ride is over – what a ride!

Posted by on Jul 31, 2016 in Adventure Travel, USA | Comments Off on Sisters’ Ride is over – what a ride!

The Sisters’ Centennial Motorcycle Ride is now over, and it was a huge success! My main goal was achieved: Create community among female motorcycle riders and promote the heck out of our sport. Published in today’s LA Times: We even got a teaser on the front of the business section: I could not have done it without my amazing (all volunteer!) staff and the phenomenal women who signed up to take part in our history-making ride. I have learned...

Driving the Garden Route

Posted by on Oct 26, 2015 in Africa, South Africa | Comments Off on Driving the Garden Route

I am in South Africa “working” for Renedian Adventures, and scouting our Garden Route Tour hotels and route so I can speak intelligently about the tour at the upcomiong trade shows. So I started out from Cape Town, and my first stop was a farm stall. Big business down here, with fruits & veggies, but also souvenirs, knick-knacks, pre-prepared food, and the must-try boutique root beer. I’m crazy about root beer and had to try it!   They were...

Reasons to love the airports in the UK

Posted by on Oct 25, 2015 in Motorcycle Vagabonding | Comments Off on Reasons to love the airports in the UK

I posted two entries last year about why international airports are so cool. Each airport is different, and you get to see a lot of things exclusive to a country, particularly their food. Now, there are more reasons to love airports, especially for those of us who tend to travel to them on our motorbikes. In the UK, motorcycle parking is much cheaper than if you were using a car. Some even offer free parking spaces for motorcycles, according to Parking4Less. If you don’t...
