Author: Jane Trombley
After careers in advertising/communications and adventure travel, I am now following my heart, and aim to inspire others to do the same. So here you'll see tips and tricks on travel and discovery for curious and sophisticated women 60+. Let's never stop exploring!
Say “Argentina” and wine – especially Malbec – comes to mind. But the world’s largest waterfall system, the dramatic Iguazú Falls, lies along Argentina’s border with Brazil. “Amazing” doesn’t really do them justice.
The Iguazú National Park (Parques Nacionales Iguazú (AR) y do lguaçu (Br)) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a few days in the sun-parched wine country of Mendoza, seeing – and occasionally feeling – water drop 270 feet (82 meters) is, well, refreshing.
Yampu Tours booked the day’s tour to Iguazú Falls, as part of a larger trip to Argentina. A high point was an unforgettable boat trip to get up close and personal with water flowing at a rate of 62,000 cubic feet (approximately 1800 square meters) per second.
Casa Zinc in La Barra across the small wavy bridge from Uruguay’s famed coastal hot spot, Punta del Este.
It’s part of the Tablet Hotel collection, which hints at its exclusive, uber-cool nature.
Casa Zinc is a small hotel, a hipster’s dream; an unassuming collection of six rooms in a quiet residential neighborhood off the main thoroughfare.
Don’t let the trompe d’oeil facade and Casa Zinc’s consciously rumpled public areas fool you. The illusion masks attention to detail in all creature comforts, wrapping modern conveniences in luxurious, carefully curated bohemian chic with just a whiff of intrigue.
Want to conjure up a mysterious past? Cafe Zinc is the perfect setting.
See if you don’t agree in the following slideshow or Casa Zinc’s online gallery, here.
At its best traveling with friends, a best pal or a small group enriches the shared life experiences and the compatibility that brought you together in the first place. Whether it’s an organized tour or your own planning with an agreed upon itinerary, accommodations, as you head out the big decisions are made. But living together 24/7 even in the short term can reveal surprises and stresses not evident in day-to-day interactions with your nearest and dearest. Following are some tips to help set expectations and ensure that the trip is indeed the wonderful memory your friendship deserves.Continue reading “How to travel with friends; 5 tips for a really great time”
The first time you visit any city, you can’t do it all. Sometimes budget constraints limit options, or the allotted time slips away. Thanks to a great itinerary put together by Yampu Tours, I experienced some of the best of Buenos Aires over 4 days in a way that made me want to return. I’m sure I’ll go back for more….

There are all sorts of ways to experience a milestone birthday: A blow-out party, cozy family event, festivities in all configurations. And of course travel… my favorite way to celebrate anything.
It was an honor to join a friend’s milestone birthday celebration in Barbados. A brilliant way to acknowledge gratitude for years past and anticipate the years to come with a gathering of friends and a smattering of spouses who joined for the last few days.

It’s not often I so whole-heartedly write about a product: in fact, this is a first for 3 Score & More. But I’ve just come back from 3, 2-3 week long trips and believe me, I WISH I’d had this tucked among my toiletries… a single-use shampoo that is Sulfate-FREE (a must for those of us with, ahem, color-treated hair), TSA approved, AND easy to pack….
So click on through the image below if you think this is something that needs to go into your suitcase next time….
What is really breaking the mold is that I’ve not personally tried the Squeeze Pod shampoo, so I’m taking the unusual step of endorsing it based on the strong reviews of Amazon customers, thoughtful response to consumer questions from the manufacturer, and the overall strong rating.
And ordering my own set post-haste. There’s a lot more travel out there….
I’d really like your thoughts – if you’re familiar with this please share your experience – would love to see your comments posted below!
Spring is a sign of regeneration and nowhere is that more evident than in Italy’s central province of Umbria. The wisteria’s vibrancy sends the bees into a frenzy of activity, the iris’ delicate white blossoms bump up against the woody grape vines and trees ripe with spring growth; the season’s unfolding is something to behold.
Umbria is beautiful all year round, but spring may just its peak. The following photo essay was drawn from the area around Civitella del Lago, a small village above a ‘lake’ formed by a dam on the river Tiber. The town is located in between Todi and Perugia, in central Umbria.
Here are some reasons to see Umbria in the spring….
It’s at The Distillery, on Portobello Road in trendy Notting Hill. Hands down best. Not the kind of gin and tonic with the anemic slice of lime that you you find at summer cocktail parties. Oh no, not here.
Here, gin is an art form with over a hundred brands on hand from around the world and a dozen or so different tonic waters and curated garnishes paired to enhance its flavor and aroma.
My ‘gin-perience’ began at The Distillery’s unique gin bar, Gintonica….
Sweden is one of my favorite destinations. The southernmost region, Skane, where pastoral and woodsy beauty mixes with a stunning coastline, is a magical place within a very modern country.
On a solo road trip through Skane, I uncovered 3 unforgettable places, each deserving of its own narrative to share the soulful experiences of the seaside, forest, and yes, sophisticated dining.
Following is a summary of that trip which, at every turn, made my heart soar. The common thread is the laid-back warmth of the Swedish culture which both recognizes and celebrates the natural beauty and bounty found in this corner of the world.
