Prior to our trip, I made arrangements with Ruth Ann at Greensburg GreenTown for a tour. I was curious about the transformation of the community after it was nearly completely leveled by an EF5 tornado in 2007.  Tue, 16 Dec 2014 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2014/16/Western-High-Plains-South-Puts-Modern-Twist-on-Cowtown-Charm/3111/ This Northwestern Road Trip Rocks the Stereotype http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2014/16/This-Northwestern-Road-Trip-Rocks-the-Stereotype-/3110/ One of the things I love most about being a Kansas girl is the remarkable diversity of this state. In fact, if you had been along with me on my Yellow Brick Road Trip through the Northwestern High Plains, you would have marveled at dramatic rock formations and tasted the rich brew of a local coffee roaster. You could have experienced Kansas’ African-American heritage or hiked miles of scenic trails.  Tue, 16 Dec 2014 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2014/16/This-Northwestern-Road-Trip-Rocks-the-Stereotype-/3110/ Reconnect with Friends on this Girls-Only Getaway http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2014/16/Reconnect-with-Friends-on-this-Girls-Only-Getaway/3108/ It’s not often I get to steal away with my two high school BFFs for a weekend to reconnect and recharge. A weekend without kids and significant others means time for us to catch up, share stories, and celebrate with great food and shopping.
