Stonehenge II - Ingram, Tx

Offbeat America – Stonehenge…in Texas??? with a Side of Easter!

So I love to find the offbeat things in this country, and what better place to find something offbeat than in Texas. It actually should have been too easy, and it was, but not for the reason one might think. It wasn’t something ordinary like a 15 foot tall lumberjack or peanut-shaped statue of a former president. Nope, someone […]

Never Ending Texas…

First I know it’s been a while since I have written, have you ever had so much to say, but not been in a state of mind where you can say it… Instead of starting with the hard stuff I am writing about something easy today. Today is about Texas (I hope that is okay?) […]


Foodie Challenge: Willie Mae’s in New Orleans

I know that I said that I wouldn’t just eat fried chicken everywhere I went, but Andrew Zimmern said that this place has the best fried chicken in America. How could I possibly pass that up?!? I arrived at 5:10PM, only to be told that they close at 5PM. I must have looked completely devastated […]

An Overlook in the Park

Road Trip: Great Smoky Mountains

It was winter, so I didn’t know what to expect. Most National Parks are visited at almost any other time of the year but winter, but as I make my way down from Ohio, I find that it is the perfect time for me. I needed a little alone time and was thankful not to be […]


Offbeat America – 1st ever KFC

So this really shouldn’t qualify as that offbeat, except to me a museum solely dedicated to KFC seems a bit strange… Stranger still it is a working KFC restaurant as well. Talk about off the beaten path, it is located in an out of the way place in a small town (Corbin, KY). How it […]

Drive this way...

Horses, Castles, and KFC???

My journey begins at last! I feel like I have been talking about it for so long that it hardly seems real that it is finally here. I am hoping to be able to get out of my own way and live in the moments that I will be creating in the coming months. Hopefully, […]

The Hardest Break-Up

I have been having a love affair with India for over a decade, let’s be honest it is one of my longest lived relationships to date. I have spent many an hour staring out of a window dreaming about the day that I would get to stand in front of the Taj Mahal, listen to […]



    “Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”   – Maya Angelou          

24hr Layover in San Francisco

I have only been in SF for a few hours now. I am sitting at the bar of one of my favorite restaurants, it’s a chain which would make all my Bay Area peeps turn over in their proverbial graves. Except they are all very much alive, so I can’t bring myself to feel any […]

Food Challenge: Columbus (part 1)

So like most things in life, when you make a decision you have to begin where you are. So right now I am in Columbus, so my food travel challenge begins here with Schmidt’s Sausage Haus. Opened in 1888 as a meat packing house, it ventured into the restaurant business via a food stand opened in […]

The Foodie Travel Challenge

Like most Americans I probably watch more television than I should, and like most Americans most of it is reality. But instead of being mystified by the drama of those almost famous for doing nothing, I can usually be caught watching the antics of my favorite guy Andrew Zimmern. That guy will eat anything and I am amazed at his […]

Thoughts On Becoming Unbound

A lot of the people out there travel blogging seem to be mid-twenty somethings with a pack on their back and $5 in their pocket. I admire the people that graduated from college and instead of joining the corporate rat race packed a bag and left to see the world. The fact that most of […]


Not Goodbye Friends

…but a see your sexy asses later!!!  :) “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” -Miriam Adeney This isn’t my first move, and in all the places where […]


Hocking Hills State Park (Ohio)

In my quest to do more in Ohio than just work my day job, I found myself at Hocking Hills one beautiful, crisp Saturday in the fall. My good friend Naila of Spirit Syrup joined me. It is less than 2 hours away from Columbus, and gave us plenty of time to talk and get lost […]


Picture This…German Village (C’bus, OH)

German Village is one of the oldest and best preserved parts of Columbus. There are many streets with the brick pavers still exposed, houses are often narrow and close to the neighbors, and there is a lot of charm and presence to the neighborhood. It is a place with corner stores and family restaurants. It is a […]

Cuyahoga - Brandywine Falls 8

Cuyahoga National Park (Ohio)

Before moving to the Midwest I admittedly didn’t really know much about it. I knew that it was a center for agriculture and was at the forefront of the industrialization in the US, but I didn’t really think that there would be a lot of natural beauty. Having been settled during a time when preserving […]


Americas National Parks

“Leave it as it is. Man can do nothing to improve upon it.” – President Franklin D. Roosevelt     This country is gloriously beautiful. What America lacks in age it makes up for in natural beauty. The most amazing thing for me was how the discovery of the vast beauty native to the United […]

Blog: All the Many Layers

I hope that it isn’t bad form to publish someone else’s words, I mean literally word for word. If it is, then I owe the author an apology.  I had thought about paraphrasing what I had read, but didn’t find any words that would convey any better the emotions that overwhelmed me when I read this piece.  I […]
