Destination: Amsterdam

A few of us spent a long weekend in Amsterdam enjoying its rich history and culture. It’s a refreshingly approachable city to discover by walking or using the GVB Tram system. Each compact neighborhood unfolds revealing elaborate canal systems, narrow town homes with gabled facades. There are some of the most spectacular cheese shops dotted throughout where you can buy a slice or wedge to go with a bit of ham, crusty bread and wine. 

The Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank House were on our list of places to visit. Rembrandt House was under renovation and wouldn’t reopen until March 18th, but the Rijksmuseum had a few of his pieces worth seeing. 

The days were cloudy, rainy and had the best wind gusts. For me walking was the best way to see all of Amsterdam.

Travel stylishly,

Harvest Moon Over Venice

October’s full moon {the Harvest Moon} was most beautiful this evening, and our team at Stylish Heath had the opportunity to view this phenomenon over the grand canals of Venice.  

As the moon rose over the horizon it appeared larger due to the refracting light. It’s orange in color, which is fitting for this time of year with pumpkins and Halloween around the corner.


The Colors of Cartagena

A 16th century port city filled to be experienced everywhere you turn. Cartagena is on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, and we walked the Old Walled Town each day with its European squares, cobblestone streets and colorful colonial buildings. The tropical climate and high humidity levels gave reason for us to stop sightseeing each day by late afternoon to relax and have cocktails at Tabaco y Ron. A quaint establishment to enjoy a light snack, cigars if you so choose and a cool drink.
