Happy Summer, Wanderluster!

Beth-SeattleJuly 1st and it already feels like the thick of summer here in Seattle with temps consistently near 90. I just wrapped up our Seattle Culinary Tour with a fantastic group of ladies from around the country and am now pretty much settled in until August when I take off for Papua New Guinea. I do love my Seattle summers and am looking forward to a hot one :-)

In June, I spent about 10 days in London working on stories for the Expedia Viewfinder blog. You’ll see those posted on Expedia soon as well as on my blog. By the way, don’t forget to subscribe to my blog or bookmark me so you stay updated on happenings around the Wanderlust and Lipstick world.

New Orleans Culinary TourSanta Fe Culinary TourI’ve been getting emails for months about next year’s culinary tours. We’ve got New Orleans and Santa Fe all set to go with Seattle coming up soon. Believe me when I say these will sell out quickly so don’t delay if you’re interested in joining us for these.

Don’t forget to stay updated on my whereabouts and experiences by friending me on Facebook and Liking our WaL and WanderTours Facebook pages.

On the Bookshelf
36 Hours US CanadaThe New York Times: 36 Hours USA & Canada
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read the 36 Hours in…stories in the New York Times. That’s why I was thrilled to see that they’ve pulled together the “best of” in a series for the USA & Canada. (They cover other countries in other books). This book is great for planning a road trip weekend this summer!

The New York Times: 36 Hours USA & Canada

In the iPod
Monoswezi YangaMonoswezi Yanga by Monoswezi
I love the blended vocals and mix of rhythms in this CD from Monoswezi.The members come from Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Sweden and Norway and their sound is one that’s heavily influenced by Africa but with a hint of Western musical styles (including jazz saxophone).

In the DVD
The Height of Happiness
The Height of Happiness
This movie provides a great overview of Bhutan for those of you who don’t know a lot about the country but want a visual journey of this beautiful Himalayan Kingdom. In addition to just being a lovely documentary, it also explores the importance of tourism and how this influences the region’s growth.

Fjallraven Nikka Shorts
Though these are technically trekking shorts, I’ve been able to put them to use in Maui, New Orleans, Santa Fe and London. Can’t wait to wear them in Seattle and on the trail this summer!… Read more here…
