Hello, India: 72 hours in Dehli

Walking in Old Delhi

It’s true what they say. India overwhelms all of the senses.

Its vivid colors, curious smells, piquant tastes, and shoulder-rubbing, action-packed streets come together to create India’s one-and-only feel.

There’s no confusing India for another country. The trip stands apart as our most exotic in the way it elicits so many emotions.

Discovering Baja: Road Trip From Cabo to Los Barriles

Church in Miraflores, Mexico

With a full week in Cabo, we decided to venture a bit farther into the heart of the Baja. We set our sights on the East Cape.

I wanted to drive the dirt road that hugs the coastline to fill my windshield view with plenty of beach and surf. Instead, my husband and I decided to spare our Kia Sorrento and take what we considered the more sane, paved Highway 1. This allowed us to check out a few towns along the way to our final destination, Los Barriles.

Snapshot St. Petersburg: What to do, see and eat

Canal in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is a charmer from first sight. Pastel-painted 18th and 19th century buildings are like jewelry boxes begging to be opened. 

Thankfully, we had five days and six nights to explore Russia’s second largest city of 5 million.

Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, this once swampy, flood-prone land with access to the Baltic Sea became the emperor’s Naval headquarters and his grand experiment in building the city of his European travel dreams. Just stroll the streets and you'll see that he succeeded, thrusting Russia onto the cultural world stage.

Here's my snapshot of trip bests, eats and treats.
