What we're about

This meetup is a collective of creative and curious souls who want to be inspired by the world and each other. Whether it’s a visit to a Museum in New York, a concert in Princeton or watching the sunset on a junk in Ha Long Bay, we can share the wonders together.

I travel for inspiration, for connection, for knowledge and just for fun. I have wandered around the world quite a bit, but it’s a very big world and there are many places yet to see. From my travels I have learned what a wonderful journey can be from an artist’s perspective. It’s really not about how many cathedrals you can see in a day but how greatly you have been inspired. Inspired by beauty, by people, by culture, customs and even food; I have had a dream of creating experiences for those who want to take in the magnificence of this world at the right time of year, the right time of day and sharing it with kindred spirits you already know. Sounds about perfect to me! For example, if I’m going to Provence, I want to go in July when the lavender is in full bloom. I want to go to the fields later in the day when the sun is golden and stay until the sun goes down. I want to search out the most wonderful restaurants in Provence and savor their amazing cuisine and I want to do this with a group of people who know each other a bit. And let’s not forget, the inspiration can be as close as our own back yard, such as a new museum opening or a Tony winning Broadway show!

A little about me…. I’ve been a professional photographer for over 18 years. I’ve actually been designated a Master photographer by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). I am one of the few women to have this distinction. I’m also a lover of travel, food, art, music, theater and great conversation! This group should satisfy my many pleasures. I presently facilitate Princeton Fine Dining also. Whether you are a painter, a writer, a photographer, a musician, a gourmet, an architect or just someone who enjoys all the wonders and culture of the world, please join me. You may reside in Princeton or San Francisco; it really doesn’t matter. This group is about travel, beauty, culture and camaraderie.

Join me for the adventure.

A Walk in Central Park

Grand Army Plaza

Are you ready to visit New York? I know I've been missing it and I've had enough virtual tours. I think we are all ready for a real tour of Central Park. It's a perfect time of year as the kids are back in school and the tourists are back home!

Let's take a 2 hour tour of the heart of the park. We will see some of Central Park’s most famous landmarks, including Conservatory Water, Loeb Boathouse, Bethesda Terrace, Bow Bridge, the Promenade, the Lake, and Strawberry Fields. You will recognize some of them from the many movies filed there. Make sure to bring your camera because I'll some you some very special locations.

After our morning walk I thought I would make reservations at the famous Loeb Boathouse Lakehouse Restaurant. Stunning al fresco views of the lake from their outdoor terrace. I thought this would be a wonderful way to finish our walk. You can view their lunch menu here: https://www.thecentralparkboathouse.com/lakeside-restaurant-menus.php?menu=lunch#section-2 Please let me know if you would like to join us for lunch.

Another option you have after our walk is to rent a row boat at the boathouse. You rent by the hour and it's just so New York! I am the worlds worst rower so I won't be joining you on that one. I'll watch you row from the restaurant!

RAIN DATE: We will not be walking in the rain. If it should rain I'll switch our walk to Friday, September 17th.
