Travel cravings

I love to travel because it is a reminder of who we are and how we relate to the world.

Best travel experiences

My first ski trip was to New Zealand's South Island! Great country with adventure everywhere. I love to be in Lake Tahoe on a late spring day.

    • Morning
      • Tahoe House Bakery & Gourmet Store

      • Tahoe House Bakery on the west shore. Hands down the best coffee and pastries on the lake.
      • Ski Squaw Valley
        • from
        • $1,200

      • A Squaw Valley ski day - one of the best places on the planet on a good ski day! I wake up early to ski before the public arrives.
    • Afternoon
      • High Camp Mountain-Top Dining

      • Take a nice mid-day break at Alexander's with a good Cabernet Franc and lunch.
      • Power Boating on Lake Tahoe

      • Jump on a boat at the warmest part of the day. That's Lake Tahoe perfection!
    • Evening
      • PlumpJack Cafe at Squaw Valley

      • PlumpJack Cafe at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn for their pork chops with CADE Cabernet.
      • Wolfdale's Cuisine Unique

      • For their filet Mignon with a good Shafer Merlot or Revolver Cabernet Franc.
    • Night
      • PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn

      • I would stay at the PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn. Be sure to try their breakfast buffet.

        Insider Tip: If you're coming from the Bay Area, travel at off-peak times. Not on Friday nights during a big snow storm in the Sierras!
