July 2017 NEWS: Winner at the Award Ceremony
Where did I travel recently?
I was invited to the opening of the Lake Club at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and to conquer my fear of mountain biking! I am so proud of myself. Of all my 50 things before I am 50 so far, this was by far and away the scariest one. I still cannot believe I did it!
And now for something new: I was honored to be asked to be a Facebook Live host for USA Today 10best’s new project. I was “live” in Tahoe from the brand new Lake Club at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and at the Culver City Centennial Food and Wine Festival.

- MSN article: “Travel: The not-so-good ideas:” What did I say:
“People believe it saves them money to avoid a travel agent when the opposite is true,” explains Lisa Niver of We Said Go Travel. Booking a trip through a travel agency means better rates on hotels, plane upgrades, and avoiding pesky visa issues. Most of us go to a salon when we want a good haircut – “Don’t you think a professional could put a polish on your holiday too?” asks Niver.
- Budgeting for International Travel: read all the way to the end to find me: “Lisa Niver from We Said Go Travel recommends, “Budgeting for your activities. I love to go SCUBA diving and renting the gear plus boat fees can be expensive, but for me the cost is well worth it. When I travel, I want to see the underwater creatures. I would rather stay in a cheaper place and spend more on my excursions.”
