Walking in Memphis thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m covering my road trip in the American South in May of 2022. It was the end of the road — trip. We’d been surprised by Alabama’s charming coastal city Mobile, soaked up peak small town southern charm in Mississippi’s Tupelo, and finally had some time, after the whirlwind that was TravelCon’s closeout…

Travelcon 2022: Saying Goodbye to a Great Thing thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m covering my road trip in the American South in April and May of 2022, including speaking at Travelcon in Memphis. The rumors are true.

After a few days traversing the bustling, hilly city of Amman, then jetting down to…

The Jordan Desert: Going Back in Time at Petra + To Outer Space in Wadi Rum thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m sharing my journey in 2022, including this trip to Jordan in February.  With all due respect to Indiana… (come at me, Indianapolisians!) how much variety of things to do exists in The Hoosier State? I can’t say; I haven’t been. But my geographical curiosity recently led me to discover it’s roughly the…

A Warm Welcome to Jordan in Amman thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m sharing my journey in 2022, including this trip to Jordan in February. I felt a little rush arriving at Terminal Eight at JFK, the start of so many of my life’s great adventures. I was about to take off on another one — to my 46th country, the Kingdom of Jordan. It…
