Our first day in Florence we did a custom Context Travel tour, Florence for Foodies. During that tour one of stops was Procacci, an historic deli founded in 1885, which specializes in products with truffle. Walking into Procacci you are instantly enveloped into the deep musky smell that screams "truffles!" And I don't know about you, but my mind goes, "Yes, please!" During our first … [Read more...]

The Modern Honolulu

The Modern Honolulu Pool View

Hot. Hip. Happening. Usually not words associated with me.  But DEFINITELY accurate descriptions for The Modern Honolulu hotel in Oahu, Hawaii. There are a lot of older, well established hotels in Waikiki, and then there's the Modern.  A single location property, the owners have a singular focus: great design, great service. I am very fond of both. When I arrived at the hotel, I knew i … [Read more...]

Lunch at Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian-Airlines

Today I flew from Oakland to Oahu to attend the 2014 Hawaii Food & Wine Festival. In the San Francisco Bay Area it is so convenient to fly to the Hawaiian islands!  And there is no other way to fly than Hawaiian Airlines (seriously, my opinion!). When I landed in Oahu I was invited to have lunch at the Hawaiian Airlines Headquarters.  Hawaiian Airlines has generously sponsored my flight to O … [Read more...]

Florence for Foodies

Florence-For-Foodies-Sel-Poivre-Photography-FLORENCE-Procacci-Coupe

During my trip to Florence in 2007, the food did not leave much of an impression on me. I remember having great breakfasts in the morning, ones that consisted of good espresso and something like a croissant. And I recall a sumptuous bowl of Tuscan stew, but beyond that nothing that stuck out. That was 100% my fault. So sorry, Florence. I was wrong. Like we did in Kyoto, Mr. Misadventures … [Read more...]

My Panama City Beach Bucket List

My-Panama-City-Beach-Bucket-List

Turquoise blue or light emerald green, whatever the exact color is, it captivates me. When I think of Florida, it is this color that instantly appears in my mind. Quite honestly it is the only place in the world (and I have been to a lot of places) that does this to me.  The photo above, taken in Florida, is one of my favorite photos I've taken. I love the color of the sea. I never expected … [Read more...]
