bucketing budapest

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

When I travel I tend to organize my trips according to how I’ll blog them. I bucket the sites, attractions and restaurants into themes and I craft each post in my head as I go. Mike knows this about me and half way through our trip he asked if I had thought about how I […]

Flying through the streets of San Salvador on a bus – that was once used to take U.S. children to school – you’ll most certainly be approached by someone trying to sell you something, anything. When I traveled to El Salvador back in December of 2008, just one time, I decided to make a purchase…   […]

whale watching in the bay of fundy

Monday, October 17th, 2011

I made it seem like I was done posting about our summer road trip through Canada with that last one, didn’t I? Well, sorry about that. As I mentioned, we built the latter part of our travels around going on a whale watch in the Bay of Fundy and logistically, that brought us to beautiful […]

i’m on the road

Since last Wednesday and until this Saturday, September 24th, I’m traveling. You may have noticed that the reason for my travel has overtaken my Twitter feed a bit. I’m on the road with Wholly Guacamole on the Check Your Choice tour with Austin Andrews, a recent finalist on The Biggest Loser. For this campaign, we’re visiting […]
