Vala’s Pumpkin Patch: Holiday Family Fun In Nebraska

I have to admit that as a girl who primarily grew up in the deep South, I didn’t spend a lot of time growing up participating in typical fall traditions. We didn’t visit pumpkin patches or apple orchards when I was a kid. Trust me, typical fall weather in Alabama and Georgia? Let’s just say it’s not conducive to sweaters and scarves. But now that I’m living out west, it seems it’s time for me to see what all the fuss is about! During my last visit to Omaha to perform with the symphony, my fabulous host and her...

Savoring Sun Valley and the Trailing of the Sheep

When Hemingway first came to Idaho—on September 19, 1939, to be exact¬ home was Suite 206 at the Sun Valley Lodge. “Glamour House,” he nicknamed it, and so it remains. The Sun Valley Resort is the granddaddy of U.S. ski resorts, the first in the nation, founded by W. Averell Harriman in 1936. Since then it has attracted the rich and famous for  seasonal recreation:  golf, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, swimming, tennis ice-skating and skiing. The chic yet cozy Sun Valley Lodge has been updated and remodeled many times and, in fact, the resort just finished another monumental overhaul....

Experiencing Minorca’s Festival of Saint John

Mention you’re going to the Balearic Islands, and you might get a quizzical look. More likely, the four islands will be recognized by their individual names: Mallorca, Ibiza, Minorca and the least well known, Formentera. They lie off the coast of Spain in the western Mediterranean Sea between the mainland and Africa. Catalan and Spanish are the official languages, but many locals understand English. The Balearics rank as favorite vacations spots for Spaniards and other Europeans. Many tourists from the UK visit annually, but relatively few Americans. The easiest U.S. gateway is through Madrid, and then you can hop...

Spring and Luxe in Amsterdam

You are standing in a springtime garden. As you slowly turn, sunshine blazes on a riot of colors in every direction. Lush beds of tulips, daffodils and azaleas surround you. For eight weeks each year, you can find yourself among seven million tulips on seventy-nine manicured acres at Keukenhof. You probably won’t find Keukenhof in your spell-checker but you will find it less than an hour’s drive outside of Amsterdam in Lisse, South Holland, Netherlands. Keukenkof, which means “Kitchen Courtyard” in Dutch, was originally part of Teylingen Castle, and the wooded land provided food and game as far back as the 15th...
