Austria in the Air and Other Online Gallavanting

You may remember last year at this time I suggested a visit to the Neue Galerie Gift Shop as all things Austria seemed to be in the air. Not only should you consider stopping by this season for a chic selection of design items perfect for the holidays but you can see the Schiele portrait exhibit and stop in the charming Café Sabarsky for some heisse getränke (hot beverages) and Viennese sweets to ward off the bitter weather.…

A Walk from Santa Margherita to Portofino

After enjoying our hotel‘s bountiful buffet breakfast on our one full day in Santa Margherita, we approached the always helpful concierge to inquire about an outing to Portofino. He suggested that, if we were up to it, the 5 kilometer walk from Santa Margherita to Portofino was a worthwhile venture and proceeded to highlight the path on a map with suggested stops both on the way and in Portofino.…

With unusually warm October weather and a wonderful centrally located hotel, we were able to pack in plenty of Mediterranean eye candy in our all too brief stay.…
