Thumbnail image for Iconic Iceland: Favorite Moments Captured on My Icon by Gina "SuuperG" Stark June 19, 2015 Travel and Adventures

ShareSpontaneous Travel I knew the new phone was coming to me. As a member of the buzzing team of worldwide Verizon ambassadors invited to try out different phones and devices, the Nokia Lumia was happily expected. What I didn’t know was that Iceland was coming to me!  Well, I went to Iceland, but until 3 […]

Romancing Emilia Romagna – with a Big Bib!

Share  An added bonus on a food foray in Italy is the setting.  The Italians must have studied our films and been inspired to plant cypress trees in rows and geraniums in clay pots under trellises of grape vines.     Don’t kill me when I disclose that I was invited to the region of […]

ShareI am decidedly UNtech-y, but oh so photo trigger happy.  It is the camera feature of my new phone that I wanted to try out and continue to do so. Of course I broke it in on my recent Hawaii trip.   Here are some of my favorite snapshots so far!     The roads […]

Thumbnail image for Interactive Travel: When in Rome…What Would You Suggest I Do? by Gina "SuuperG" Stark September 2, 2013 Interactive Travel

ShareSo I’m traveling again, as is evidenced by the lack of blog postings. [insert sheepish grin here]. One would think the result would be more blog posts but my whirlwind trip through Germany was so non-stop I was lucky to find time to share some photos on Instagram!   In one day I’ve already stumbled […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Share                I love lights and sparkle and glimmer and shimmer as much as anyone, but I think nature can fit the bill for “festive” as well. Today’s Twitter #FriFoto theme is just that; festive.  My mind turned to this one recent favorite snapshot I took of nearby Lake […]

Belly Dancing at Sunset – in Croatia

ShareWe all have those magical moments of travel.  Moments that can never be planned but unfold spontaneously, bringing smiles at the time, and becoming our most gleeful stories to relate back home later. “Life is the dancer and you are the dance.” ~ Eckhart Tolle I’m still smiling from one such moment.  It blended two […]

Beautiful Bologna – Part II in Photos

ShareThe way I see it; if I post a gallery of photos from my recent sojourn in Bologna and I call it “Part I”, I’m pretty much committed to producing a ‘Part II’.  Trust me, this task is not taxing as sorting through the photos of my Blogville adventures is wonderfully wistful.  Bologna, perfectly and […]

Go Further: Full Throttle SuuperGForce Fun with Ford

ShareIf there were bugs out in Michigan today, a generous collection would most certainly be embedded in my teeth.  I’m still on an adrenaline high from the treat of track testing some seriously fun automobiles that I’m sure would put Henry Ford at risk of an overdose of awe. But how did I find myself […]

Cheers and Cheerful Cherries in Cres, Croatia

ShareJune is the season for cherries in Croatia.  I know this because as I make my zigzagging way up the tangled streets of Cres, Croatia,  intent on reaching the white stone tower I’ve been eyeing all morning, I am drawn farther and farther up a small private walkway, snapping photos, and barge into a sweet […]
