Pittsburgh, the confluence of cool

I recently had the pleasure of doing a little representing for my home town of Pittsburgh, PA, in the current issue of Conde Nast Traveller Middle East. I was so pleased to be able to write a story about it, and though it’s not much, I definitely wanted to share it.


And, earlier this month, I had the even greater pleasure (sorry, Pittsburgh) of spending some time in Chalet Husky in the French Alpine ski resort of Val d’Isere. Quite a different scene from my usual Alpine haunt – Wengen, Switzerland & where I’ll be in just a month – it did not disappoint and I very much hope my first trip there will not also be my last (I missed out on experiencing apres ski at La Folie Douce, which was bummer town). The full story will be in the January issue of Conde Nast Traveller Middle East (pick it up on stands around the GCC or download it at the App Store from January 1), but here are a few of my personal snaps.

    1. Great, glad to hear you enjoyed it! I actually think we’ve met up in Dubai before due to mutual PGH friends… some years back? If I’m right, hope you’ve been well!

  1. Nope…I don’t think so…Actually I don’t think I have ever met anyone else here who was from the Pittsburgh area. I would love to meet you sometime though.

    1. Ah well – there must be two Pamelas from the region running around! Always up for meeting up with other Pittsburghers out here though – let me know if you’re around Dubai some time!
