A few weeks before I went back to Atlanta for a week, Akila McConnell, another travel blogger, announced her new food tour company, called Atlanta Food Walks. As you probably know, I love food tours, so I was really excited for her. Even better, she was starting tours right before I arrived, and the timing […]
Today is our third anniversary. Three years since we stood outside in the sweltering Georgia heat, hoping to get through the photos and the wedding ceremony before melting away. Three years since officially committing to a different kind of life. But I never really wrote about it. I never really shared the pictures with everyone, […]
I’ve been to Seattle several times to visit friends who live there, and I always enjoy this city. There’s lots to do in the city, lots of nature near the city, and it’s a very environmentally friendly place. I love that you can see Mt. Rainer when the weather is clear, and I love how […]
Today is Cinco de Mayo, which is celebrated more in the US than in Mexico. It is NOT Mexico’s Independence Day (September 16th), it’s the date of a famous battle in a town called Puebla in 1862. I’m sure many of my friends in the US will be feasting on chips and salsa, guacamole, tacos, […]
I am taking part in Hostelbookers 7 Super Shots. The idea is to pick one photograph from each of seven categories. I was nominated by Jaime at Breakaway Backpacker and Erik at On My Feet or In My Mind to participate, and I love photography, so I thought this might be fun. (Be sure to […]
I have quite a few friends who are pilots or are otherwise in the aviation industry. While a pilot is trying to build hours, there’s this idea of renting a plane and flying somewhere for lunch. Since it costs roughly $100 to rent the plane, this is often called the $100 hamburger.
I just wanted to write a quick follow-up to my TSA post from last week. Panicked about complications and delays while traveling on the day before Thanksgiving, I left work a little early to give myself some extra time to make my flight to Europe. I lucked out and found plenty of parking at the […]
I don’t normally write about the controversial current events issues, but this one really infuriates me. I want to share my opinion of the new procedures, and I have read an accumulation of related articles over the past week or two, many of which I have linked in this post.
If I had my way, I’d travel as much as my bank account would allow. But at this point in my life, that’s not entirely practical, so I have to find ways to ease the pain in betweeen trips. Recently my friend Tim from North Carolina and his boyfriend came to visit me for a weekend in Atlanta, and […]
Las Vegas is known for gambling, extravagant shows, and wild partying. The lavish hotels are attractions themselves, not just a place to lay your head at night. My best friend Rachel lives in Las Vegas, so I’ve been there to visit several times. I’ve spent hours wandering through Caesar’s Palace looking at all the extravagant […]
