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… Read more

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… Read more

A Really JUCY Road Trip! Part VI: Facts and Figures thumbnail

Take five days, three states, two girls, one Jucy camper.

Of course it’s grand, and of course we were being spoiled little brats by deadpanning otherwise. But it was harmless fun, and helped salve any disappointments over the weather’s quite… Read more

A Really JUCY Road Trip! Part I: Route 66 thumbnail

Thinking back, I’m not quite sure when the idea hatched. If I really dig around in my memory, I think it might have been a vague suggestion by one of us to drive to the Grand Canyon as part of our Vegas adventures. After all, we had some time to kill between Britney and Burning Man… Read more
