Road Tripping: Chasing Liberty (AL)

One of the pleasures of driving to a destination, as opposed to flying, is that there are a myriad of opportunities to stop and see what life has to offer along the way. So it was in this spirit that I found myself in Birmingham Alabama. I planned to spend a few hours in Birmingham, […]

I Am


So one of my journeys this year has involved a large amount of personal growth, and one of the most profound things I learned about was the power of the words “I Am”; at least it was profound to me. If you are a person of faith, I imagine that I don’t have to tell you […]



    “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

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 […]

Real Voyage 1

The Voyage…

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust

You can see all that remains of the limestone cap at the top of this pyramid.

Egypt At Last…

“The people and the cultures of what is known as Africa are older than the  word ‘Africa.’ According to most records, old and new, Africans are the oldest  people on the face of the earth. The people now called Africans not only influenced the Greeks and the Romans, they influenced the early world before there […]

We Travel…

  For me there is nothing better than the feeling of being entirely surrounded by the unfamiliar, instead of feeling lost I feel exhilarated. Granted I have moved a bit in my life (maybe in pursuit of that feeling?), but it is still familiar at the end of the day because it is still America. […]

Travel is like…

“Travel is like adultery: one is always tempted to be unfaithful to one’s own country. To have imagination is inevitably to be dissatisfied with where you live…in our wanderlust, we are lovers looking for consummation.” -Elisabeth Eaves

Splendor is…

“Splendid to arrive alone in a foreign country and feel the assault of difference. Here they are all along, busy with living; they don’t talk or look like me. The rhythm of their day is entirely different; I am foreign. ” ―     Frances Mayes

To Live Again

“A Chinese poet many centuries ago noticed that to re-create something in words is like being alive twice. ” -Frances Mayes It is here that I am recreating my travels and living them again and again, and that is more than I ever hoped for.


Just Start!

My sister told me to do it; she said to just start. I am a big fan of quotes, and on the heels of her encouragement, I found this: “Great people do things before they are ready. They do things before they know they can do it.” – Amy Poehler I guess I couldn’t ignore […]
