Thumbnail image for Glass-ology: A Photo Gallery from My Translucent Travels by Gina "SuuperG" Stark June 7, 2013 Travel and Adventures

First Date: Toledo, Spain

Thumbnail image for First Date: Toledo, Spain by Gina "SuuperG" Stark May 21, 2013 Travel and Adventures

ShareOn my first stay in Spain, over twenty years ago, I was living at my friend’s flat in Madrid, only a quick jaunt to Toledo by car and an easy 35-minute train ride from the Atocha station.  In those summer days of teen-hood, my friend and I were more intent on savoring and sampling the […]

Horizons – A Photo Gallery for #FriFotos

Thumbnail image for Horizons – A Photo Gallery for #FriFotos by Gina "SuuperG" Stark May 10, 2013 Hiking

ShareHorizons are both visual and representational, drawing our attention in a mesmerizing fashion.  For this week’s theme for photo sharing on Twitter, I selected several images…especially because I live both coastal-y and mountain-ly.   And with my hiking, I’m often gazing out over gorgeous horizons and snapping photos to both share and try – sometimes […]

Thumbnail image for Tongue-in-Cheeky Travel Tip: Have a Moment with a Monument by Gina "SuuperG" Stark May 2, 2013 Travel and Adventures

Share    Travel is such an individual experience and I’m reluctant to dole out too many “should”s about it, but I have another important “tongue-in-cheeky” travel tip I’d like to share. Well, it’s more a recommendation:     Have a moment with a monument. It took more than a few moments for them to be […]

White Sands (in My Pants?): A National Monument au Natural

Thumbnail image for White Sands (in My Pants?): A National Monument au Natural by Gina "SuuperG" Stark April 25, 2013 Travel and Adventures

ShareStory contributed by Fred Briggs:   White Sands is one of my favorite National Parks. I love the three-color universe there; blue sky, black mountains and ultra white sand. A couple of years ago, I was driving alone through New Mexico, returning from visiting my brother in Texas. It was a beautiful late fall day […]

#FriFotos – What is the West to You?

Thumbnail image for #FriFotos – What is the West to You? by Gina "SuuperG" Stark April 19, 2013 Travel and Adventures

Share    West. It seems like a simple theme.  But isn’t “west” relative to where you are? I feel like I’m pretty much residing in the quintessential “west” being at the farthest end of the North American continent – merely a few blocks from the Pacific Ocean. Trust me; I’m grateful. So, maybe it’s a […]

ShareI’m having an affair.  I thought you should be the first to know.  You’ve likely surmised as much if you follow my social media updates. But I thought I should come clean with my confession here, in a more intimate setting: I’m passionately in love with nature. “Earth laughs in flowers.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson […]

ShareThis week’s theme for the #FriFotos sharing frenzy on Twitter is ‘symbols’.  Being a native born Los Angelina (I escaped successfully 25 years ago) I thought this snapshot of the Encounter Restaurant at LAX to be fitting. My favorite part of the photo is how impromptu it was.  I was literally awaiting pick-up at Los […]

Rab, Croatia: Boating, Belly Dancing and Beyond

ShareAlready I can tell I will love Rab, both the name of the island and the town where we sail into the marina we’ll call home for two nights. As small and quaint as it is, Rab boasts no less than four bold stone towers, all visible from our approach. Once docked, we all head […]

NAIAS: Moving Fordward and Going Green with Ford

ShareI must admit I wasn’t certain why I was invited to Ford Motor Company’s annual automotive showcase event and more recently the NAIAS – North American International Auto Show.  I am a closet car enthusiast but my driving habits are not closeted…the California Highway Patrol has certainly recognized me as a speed “enthusiast”. Yes, even […]

ShareToday’s #FriFoto theme is sparkle.  What girl doesn’t like sparkle?  Well, this particular girl likes to find it in nature, actually (OK OK, I know precious gems are natural, but you know what I mean…).  As I perused my photo collection, it seems my favorite sparkly source is water. This makes perfect sense as I […]
