If you’re like us and don’t own a bike but enjoy cycling every now and again, LimeBikes are a great alternative to buying and storing a bike. Ditto for scooters! All you need is a smartphone to download the LimeBike app and the map shows you where bikes and scooters are available to be picked up. Once you’ve located your bike, it can be unlocked by scanning the QR code on the back of the bike, just under the seat. LimeBikes are located in many major U.S. cities and several European cities.

In October 2017, the devastating fires in Napa and Sonoma touched nearly everyone either personally or through friends and family. As part of the recovery, Napa Valley denizens are ready and eager to welcome visitors with open arms and delicious food and drink. Weeks after the fires, my friend and I ventured to St. Helena and Napa to support the area and enjoy some good food and wine.
Have you ever fancied playing tourist for a day or weekend in your city? It’s always a lot of fun. No need to wait for out-of-town guests to enjoy taking in the sights, especially if you live in or near a beautiful city – and San Francisco is no exception.
Clift San Francisco
So we decided to book a room at the Clift, a luxury boutique hotel nestled on Geary Street just steps from bustling Union Square – one of our favorite areas in SF. The hotel is conveniently located within easy walking distance to many wonderful restaurants, shops, bars, art galleries – and the Powell Street cable car line.

There’s no denying that Lausanne and the Montreux Riviera of Lake Geneva offer many attractions. But the charming wine country and mountain area of Valais is a short drive or train ride southeast of the lake. The name is derived from the Roman word for valley. The Rhone River begins in the Valais Alps and flows through the plains, meandering south to the celebrated wine region of France.
With a similar terroir to the French Rhone Valley, the Valais is the largest wine-producing region in Switzerland. Though much of Swiss wine is produced by smaller wineries and consumed in-country, some wineries present creative and alluring tasting rooms and a few export to the U.S.
In addition to oenophiles, skiers and hikers will also be at home in this Alpine region. The spas of Leukerbad and other villages are famous for R&R of the water-plunge sort. As for gastronomy, the specialty is raclette, the warmed Alpine cheese served with accoutrements.

In South West Switzerland, Geneva may get the fame. But Lausanne has won my heart. Some cities are the perfect size, and Lausanne fits the bill. As the fourth-largest city in the country and home to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Lausanne has grand hotels, a bustling tourist life, and an excellent metro system. Yet the many quiet neighborhoods, the mix of historic and trendy venues, plus many local festivals and traditions give the destination a small-town ambiance.

Switzerland has a mighty mix of attractions considering it’s ten times smaller than California. Though Zurich and Lucerne receive more tourist attention, the towns along the Montreux Riviera hugging Lake Geneva in South West Switzerland are hidden treasures. From Montreux, the famous jazz-obsessed town, to Charlie Chaplain’s town of Vevey with an easy segue to Rougemont in the Alps, you may fall in love with a destination surrounded by natural beauty.
