    A Trip Back In Time - Grand Union Hotel: Fort Benton, Montana

    $0.00

    If your travels take you near Great Falls, Montana, then please add a couple nights and visit the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton. Located 36 miles north of Great Falls, this is Montana’s oldest operating hotel. Built in 1882, 7 years before Montana became a state and at the height of the Steamboat era, this property cost $50,000 to construct and $150,000 to furnish. It ran on hard times in the 1980’s and had to close, but thanks to Jim and Cheryl Gagnon, Montana natives, the hotel was purchased by them in 1997, restored and then reopened in 1999. It is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Caving with Carlin Part 4

    $0.00

    Carlin led us along a scenic hike along the base of a cliff, clambering over a multitude of rocks and the occasional root.  Looking up, there were always towering walls of rock soaring up towards the sky.   We reached this place called “the Anvil” and here we looked up and saw a giant rock formation hanging precipitously over our heads!   I looked around and saw no place to go from here and wondered what Carlin had in mind for us now!  As we took a moment to catch our breath he told us about the rock climbers and how there are several routes up this steep cliff!   In my mind I am saying “are you expecting us to climb up there?”

    Bangkok: Where the Food is the Culture

    $0.00

    It was about 8 pm in Bangkok, but things were only just getting started. My friend and I hopped aboard our extra secure “Smiling Tuk-tuk” – ones that actually feature metal mesh on the sides to prevent passing motorcyclists from grabbing your bag or purse -- and zoomed around Bangkok on a night-time culinary adventure organized by Bangkok Food Tours. The experience allowed us to both experience the best local eats of the city's restaurants and night markets – some neighborhoods specialize in certain dishes – and also safely explore the city at night. We stopped at four restaurants/food stands in different neighborhoods, including a dessert specialty place, and we also visited the flower market before ending our evening atop one of Bangkok's coolest roof-top bars, enjoying a Thai beer, while looking out over Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn.
