San Pedro Belize Insider’s Favorite Places to Eat

When people travel, they often depend on the concierge for suggestions on what to do, where to eat, and places to hang out. I know I do. But, I always take it a step further and do my own investigation. I check out Instagram and message locals I find and know.

La Provence: A Taste of France in Beaverton Oregon

I am one of those restaurant goers who likes to find something different, out of the way, not the usual fare. In order to find these “pearls” when traveling, I rely on various sources; locals who are willing to share their favorite eateries, hotel concierges, newspapers, internet (of course), and family members.

This past visit, we were lucky to get…

Ca’ Momi Osteria Restaurant Review – A Special Spot In Downtown Napa

  Something special opened in downtown Napa last fall – Ca’ Momi Osteria restaurant.  While the restaurant may be new, the soul, the food and the wine is rooted deeply in the traditions of Italy and the Napa Valley.   Ca’ Momi Enoteca has been in Napa Valley for over 5 years serving pizza and amazing pastries, but the story starts well before that.  Valentina…
