The Great Escape: Month 51 Roundup thumbnail

From the Caribbean back to the East Coast and out West again -- it was a month on the move. I started and ended this month with two big trips, cushioned in the middle by a nice stretch of downtime in which to catch my breath. It was a pretty good balance, and while I had…

Month 49 & 50

My passport stayed firmly in storage for months 49 and 50, in which I continued my US summer of exploration by car, plane, boat and train. Eight cities across five states might seem crazy for a two month stretch, but it's a sign of how chaotic my life was around this time that it actually seemed…

New York City

Rochester

After dragging my big sis Margaret along on my Upstate New York adventures all over Keuka Lake, Corning, and a glass-blowing workshop, we were both happy but exhausted. And my road trip wasn't over yet! So we headed up to Margaret's hometown of Rochester, New York, to really relax for a weekend. You know, lay around…
