My Thirteen Favorite US Travel Destinations thumbnail

Happy independence day, America! They say it takes leaving home to appreciate the beauty of your own backyard, and in my evolution as a traveler, I’ve found that to be true. There was a time when not a single one of the fifty states seemed adventurous enough to quench my thirst for all things exotic, but…

The Great Escape: Month 52 Roundup thumbnail

Oh, my monthly roundups. They are so ridiculously out of sync with real time now that I've considered axing the entire series, as I did recently with Photo of the Week. Yet I know this series has some loyal fans -- and I'm one of them! Apologies for the delay, but I suppose better is late…

Burning Man

Is this festival deep in the heart of the Nevada desert on your bucket list? I hope that after this post, it will be! I attended Burning Man for the first time in 2013, and then again in 2015. Burning Man is intense, y'all. In some ways, it's taken me almost six full months to process…
