Rab, Croatia: Boating, Belly Dancing and Beyond

Thumbnail image for Rab, Croatia: Boating, Belly Dancing and Beyond by Gina "SuuperG" Stark February 20, 2013 Travel and Adventures

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 […]

#FriFotos Festive Fresh Snowfall Over Lake Fulmore

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 […]

#FriFotos Gelato Under the Arches – Bologna, Italy

Thumbnail image for #FriFotos Gelato Under the Arches – Bologna, Italy by Gina "SuuperG" Stark December 14, 2012 Travel and Adventures

ShareSo lovely you almost can’t touch it. Almost. Sweets! Somehow when we’re traveling we justify calorie-laden, creamy, rich indulgences more than when we’re in our home routine.  Perhaps because we walk miles a day, performing industrial level sight-seeing.  Either way, I had no qualms when I delved into this, the first gelato sampling of my […]

Belly Dancing at Sunset – in Croatia

Thumbnail image for Belly Dancing at Sunset – in Croatia by Gina "SuuperG" Stark November 4, 2012 Belly Dance

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

Thumbnail image for Beautiful Bologna – Part II in Photos by Gina "SuuperG" Stark October 2, 2012 Travel and Adventures

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 […]

Bologna, Italy – A Traveler’s Triathalon

ShareIf you worry that your fitness regimen may be challenged when you travel, fear not.  On one beautiful day in Italy, my girlfriends Helene, Sara and I managed to create and conquer our own Bologna Triathalon. First we climbed the 500 steps of the ancient Asinelli tower (barefoot) and monkeyed around on top while taking […]

Interactive Travel: Italy! Tell Gina Where to Go

Thumbnail image for Interactive Travel: Italy! Tell Gina Where to Go by Gina "SuuperG" Stark May 11, 2012 Interactive Travel

ShareI’m doing it again.  Yes, traveling (I do that on occasion). But more than that.  I’m opening my vacation up to the input, suggestions and perhaps even a few dares from my readers (and in this instance, fellow prior blogville residents). Be gentle. So, you may have seen some buzz going around Twitter about #BlogVille.  […]

Phabulous Phoenix – Changing my Rustic Perceptions of Arizona

Thumbnail image for Phabulous Phoenix – Changing my Rustic Perceptions of Arizona by Gina "SuuperG" Stark May 3, 2012 Travel and Adventures

ShareWe all have long-held biases of places. Opinions we formed when we were less open-minded or on family road trips driving through desert territory without air conditioning.  Most of my ignorant perceptions of my neighboring state of Arizona were forged under these conditions.  I’m old enough to have experienced a family car (a Ford Pinto, […]

Gratitudinousness – What I am Thankful for Today and Always

ShareGratitudinousness.  It’s one of my favorite conjured words. And it really works in that gratitude is such a BIG concept…I think it kinda needs more greedy letters “We don’t need more to be thankful for, we might just need to be more thankful.” Unknown Many who know me in my life and on Twitter and […]

Valentine’s Day: Obligatory vs Voluntary

Thumbnail image for Valentine’s Day: Obligatory vs Voluntary by Gina "SuuperG" Stark February 14, 2011 Random Ponderings

ShareIs posting something about love and Valentine’s Day obligatory?  I’m seeing a plethora of articles and fun lists going around about this fun and loving day.  I pondered over whether I felt any pressure to post something to get on the band wagon, and decided; I always did like wagons. A kiss is a lovely […]
