Check out my stories as I join the Pacific Dance Adventure group for a new dance cruise experience. This adventure begins this May with a pre-cruise program in Honolulu, Hawaii, and continues on Holland America's Noordam, cruising back to Vancouver.
Review From The House

This travelblogue is my journal of a week spent studying food and wine writing in Southern France in 2006.
The story picks up from my departure from London at the end of Travelblogue: London 2006
Vienna may be variously termed the City of Music, the City of Dreams or the City of Waltz, but it most definitely merits the title of City of Fabulous Food and coffees. In a short visit one can only touch the surface of the restaurant, cafe and coffeehouse scene but I certainly got a taste, so to speak, of the overall food scene, and I did not have a single bad dining experience.
During the years I worked at C&W Hospital, the rainy winter months in Vancouver never bothered me. I was usually at work early and it was dark by the time I left for home. But the incessant rain and dreary greyness this November was denervating and the thought of a West Cost cruise down to sunny Mexico was appealing. I found the perfect choice - a 7 night cruise on the Ruby Princess.

This is an adventure in London en route to a Food Writing Course in France in the Languedoc.
Although I travel frequently to Orange County, this was my first visit to this part of California. A favorite winter destination for Canadian snowbirds - including many of my Vancouver friends- the average winter high temperature is around a pleasant 22 ° C. On the other hand with an average July temperature high around 40 ° C, one would think it would take a special reason like a convention or a festival to motivate people to visit. Surprisingly though the hotel pool was crowded with kids as well as adults, splashing away under the blazing noon day sun.
