Picture Mad Men - carefully coiffed men and women mastering the art of the perfect cocktail in between work and lover's trysts, amid the distinctive design aesthetic of the mid 20th century. Whether or not you are a fan of the show, nothing says cool quite like the period of martinis, Eames furniture and the two Franks - Sinatra and Lloyd Wright.

The completely renovated Westin Hotel in downtown Portland enjoys one of the best locations the city has to offer. Steps from city favorites such as Powell's Books, Pioneer Courthouse Square and the Portland Art Museum, the hotel is also easy walking distance from the Pearl District and the city’s best dining, shopping, and entertainment.

We're so excited to share where we'll be staying on our VERY last night in Ireland. Where else, but the Bunratty Castle Mews B&B? It's a traditional B&B in Bunratty on the Low road only 5 minutes from Shannon Airport, run by the VERY friendly Dolores and Garry O' Toole. When I called Dolores to make arrangements, it was as if I was talking with an old friend. We can't wait to come stay!

Shortly after arriving in Philadelphia and settling into Penn's View Hotel, I left the hotel for a stroll. I had no particular destination in mind, I just wanted to check out the area and see what was around.

With a BIG walk across the Spanish sierra on my May travel agenda, I thought it fitting to write about one of the most beautiful resort hotels in Spain, after all, I might need some pampering and R & R at the end of the Camino Santiago, an ancient 800km pilgrimage trail originating in France and ending in Santiago de Compostela in the Spanish north-west.
