For as long as I can remember, I've yearned to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpiece Fallingwater. I remember first hearing about it on a children's show as a kid (Sesame Street, perhaps?) and the concept of a house built over a stream, perfectly integrated with the surrounding environment has intrigued me ever since. It

Originally posted on Go! Girl Guides on May 17, 2011. When you plan a trip, you never expect that you may have to spend time in a place that turns out to be less than mind-blowing. After all, to travel is to explore, to immerse yourself in another culture and taking

  To some, the Grand Canyon is simply a "hole in the ground." To others, it's one of the most magnificant spots on the planet. (And, rightly so.) However, I think to truly appreciate the splendor of this water-carved canyon, you need to get up close and personal with it. Hike

Who hasn't wondered what it would be like to be on the Amazing Race? The idea of racing through some unknown land, uncovering clues and having a rip-roaring time along the way is enough to entice anyone to apply for the show.Luckily, I didn't have to go quite to that

I went to Chile's Torres del Paine National Park in October 2009. It was right before the tourist season started, so I practically had the park to myself. This photo of the Cuernos del Paine (the "Horns") was taken on the shores of Lake Pehoe. I was barely able to stand

I was drawn to New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy region with stories of dramatically shifting tides... my aunt and uncle are rumored to have gotten caught offguard by the tides and left stranded on a rock in the bay on their honeymoon 30+ years ago! After witnessing the tides and exploring the nearby town

Is there anything as enticing as the open road? This week, rather than inspire by mere destination alone, this snapshot is of no place of particular importance. Rather, the idea of the open road is intended to encourage wanderlust and a feeling of a future full of possibility. Where will YOU go on your journey? ***To contribute

Ah, Italia. Firenze is easily my favorite city in all of Italy... and maybe in all of Europe! I love the charming cobblestone streets, the artsy Oltrarno district, the food (oh, the food!), Brunelleschi's Duomo and the fact that for a city made of stone, it still maintains a warmth and feeling of

Photo courtesy of VegasBottle.com Cosmopolitan. Just the name alone evokes fond feelings for women... Memories of girlfriends gossiping over frilly, potent pink martinis... of an exciting lifestyle that many of us aspire to have. With so much of Las Vegas geared towards men, it’s only fitting that the new kid on Sin

Spring is by far the most enticing time in Washington, DC. People wearily come out of their homes, tentatively shed their winter jackets and begin to marvel at the changing seasons. The famous cherry blossoms, a gift from the people of Japan in 1912, surround the tidal basin and create

During the day, this Malibu, California beachfront is notable for its grandeur. Celebrity mansions occupy this narrow strip of beach. But as the sun begins to go down, the reflections, jagged rocks and glistening water take center stage and everyone (down to the biggest star) is in awe of the colorful sunset.

Queenstown. How fitting is it that New Zealand's adventure capital is also one of the most pristine, most simply beautiful cities in their country? Well worth a stop on any South Island trip, take the gondola high up to the scenic overlook, spend the afternoon reading in the Queenstown
