Truckee: An Ever-Evolving Mountain Town

I spent my childhood between San Francisco during the school months and Truckee, CA, during the winter and summer months we were out of school. My folks had built cabin in the 70s before the shmancy Tahoe Donner community was established. Over the past 15 years, Truckee has become a total destination. We graduated from remote mountain town, to resort mountain town with an exclusive second-home community, to, now, destination touting both a Ritz and owner-exclusive community in Martis Camp.

Endless Mimosas in Barcelona

In my self pity for not having a holiday-timed adventure planned, I visited my brother in Barcelona for a long weekend. Peter had taken a 3 month break from his job in order to decompress and backpack through Europe. I’d never been to this Catalonia city and justified the whirlwind trip with killer airfare via Delta and a chic (and cost-effective) Airbnb in the heart of the Gothic Quarter.
