Bringing My Mom to Bonnaroo thumbnail

Years ago, I watched the documentary Taking My Parents to Burning Man, and I thought, um… hell no. Burning Man is a lot of things, but an experience I wanted to share with my mom or my dad was not one of them. However, years later, things changed — sort of. My friend Kristin was visiting me…

‘Roo Take Two! A Bonnaroo 2017 Festival Recap thumbnail

I think we’re all pretty clear at this point on the fact that I’m obsessed with festivals. So it should come as no surprise that when my girl Kristin invited me back to Tennessee for my second Bonnaroo, I said yes in a bass beat. Much of the experience was the same: we stayed at Kristin’s…

Surviving Songkran: Celebrating Thailand’s Wet and Wild New Year on Koh Tao thumbnail

You thought fireworks were cool? Just wait until you see how Thailand marks the start of the Buddhist New Year: with a nation-wide water fight. This is real life. From April 13th-15th every year Thailand is consumed by the joy of celebrating Songkran, which comes from a Sanskrit word translating to ‘passing.’ Once a solemn, sacred event in which…
