Travel Blog

While I love the PNW, I also like to venture beyond it (thus, the name of this website!)

This is the “travel blog” page for all things travel on this website. I recently had to re-do part of this website for technical reasons to do with the events component of this website, and I’m working to get individual pages up for the major sections: PNW, Travel, Travel Destinations, “travel-inspired” recipes, and as well as other sections.

While I have tons more to write about the travel destinations I’ve visited, I’m working on some posts about travel tips as well. We’re getting there…

Marie Antoinette. Peasant.

Marie Antoinette. Peasant.

On the grounds of Versailles, away from the palace, and away from her house on the grounds, Marie Antoinette had a rustic village and farm constructed where she could get away from palace life and pretend to be a peasant.

Here’s more about this interesting area of Versailles, that I actually enjoyed visiting more than the Hall of Mirrors.

How to Type Commonly Used Accents on Windows 10 International Keyboard (Including a Cheat Sheet for French Accents)

One thing that I found frustrating when learning French was having to type a bunch of accents on the keyboard. Using the international keyboard is really not too hard, and after a while you can easily commit the keys to memory. But at first, it was très difficile so I created a cheat sheet. Here it is, along with some advice about using the international keyboard and a refresher on French accents.

Learning a Language into The Senior Years: Will it Protect Me from Dementia?

Learning a Language into The Senior Years: Will it Protect Me from Dementia?

It’s a likeable notion that learning a foreign language might help stave off cognitive decline and dementia in our senior years. But is it true? Studies suggest positive benefits to bilingualism in old age, but are generally small and inconclusvie. Still, there are intrinsic benefits to learning a second language.

Traveling the World…Virtually

Traveling the World…Virtually

When you’re stuck at home one way to possibly assuage your travel lust is to go on some virtual tours.

Plenty are available on your laptop or desktop and, if you’re lucky enough to be staying home with a VR headset, you can heighten the escapism with plenty of 360 degree videos and adventures.

Gifts for the Traveler Who Has Nothing

Gifts for the Traveler Who Has Nothing

“Gifts for the traveler who has everything,” comes to mind when thinking about holiday gift lists to create. But what about gifts for the traveler who has…nothing? When my daughter asked me to borrow my carry-on I, instead, put together a holiday package that would serve her for the many years of travel she has ahead of her. Hint: these are also good basic things to put in your carry on bag in general.

Walking the Philosopher’s Path…Plus

Walking the Philosopher’s Path…Plus

The Path of Philosophy is a classic Kyoto walk — especially in Spring as the path is lined with cherry trees.

The Cutest Little Cream Puffs in Tokyo

Toyko (and much of Japan, for that matter) is a great place to find kawaii (cute) desserts! If you’re a Studio Ghibli fan visiting Toyko, you might find these cream puffs a little too cute to eat! Here’s more about visiting Shirohige’s Cream Puff Factory.
