Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

I’d like you to meet Lucy the elephant… She is a little tourist attraction between OC and AC in Jersey. She used to be a hotel and now she is a museum. I had seen her on t-shirts before, but never understood the story or where she came from. She has definitely had a pretty […]

In September during one of my first years in college in Philly, my South Jersey friends took me “down the shore” for the first time. On the way down, I asked them what it was like and they told me there were numbered streets, wooter ice, funnel cake (aka fried dough) and of course, a […]

Last Friday afternoon Lisa, Bryce and I left for Montreal from Boston, while our friend Caitlin boarded a plane in New York to meet us that night. Our timing was perfect and we were able to swing by the airport to pick her up on the way to the hotel. We settled in and set […]

[From mapsoftheworld.com] Back when I mentioned I was taking some time off and perhaps a few long weekends away, Montreal was not yet finalized, but now it is! My friends and I will be driving up from Boston, with one friend flying up from New York, in a couple of weekends. Now, we just need […]
