Central Park: Solitude and Grace in the Heart of America’s Largest City

Central Park: Solitude and Grace in the Heart of America’s Largest City

After taking a recent trip to NY a week ago and spending the better part of a perfect day in Central Park, I actually forgot I was in a noisy city. The weather was perfect, and I was able to run around on the soft grass with my niece and nephew and sit under a shady tree. Upon my return I was inspired to learn more about our nation’s largest urban oasis.

Book Review: The Diplomatic Dog of Barbados

Every once in a while, if you are lucky, you run across a book that you just LOVE. I know, we can count these books on one hand. I read hundreds of books a year (many of them travel guides and books for Wandering Educators). They are all wonderful, and I would never recommend a book on this site if I didn't like it - and think that our readers would like it, as well. But back to this particular book...written by a dear friend of mine, Winfred Peppinck.

We had such fun playing at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts this week! They have a small collection of art from all periods, and currently have a Georgia O'Keefe exhibit. BUT! the best part was the ARTworks interactive gallery! This is "A special place for young visitors! "Paint" with virtual paint on a giant computer screen. Change the colors in a work of art with a computer. Enjoy books, blocks, drawing and more!" The KIA is located in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan.

When many travelers think of Germany, they think of Berlin and Munich or the Rhine wine country, but there are other wonderful cities and states to visit, and Stuttgart and the state of Baden-Württemberg should be on the list. It is on the border of the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) region and is a business center for the auto industry and the U.S. military. There is plenty to see in the Stuttgart area and it’s an easy city to travel in and out of to see other parts of Baden-Württemberg. Here are some notes from my recent trip to the area.

On our recent trip to the Twin Cities, we had the good fortune to go explore and play at the Science Museum of Minnesota. This is one of my very favorite museums, and I am so happy that we are able to share it with you!

When we were visiting the Wisconsin Dells a few weeks ago, we were surprised at the vast array of food offered to visitors. However, upon closer inspection, much of this food seemed more chain-restaurants and old-time diners. We were lucky enough to find three great restaurants - and a coffee shop! - that espouse fresh, organic ingredients, great service, local suppliers, and more.
