Day 16: Finding a Place in the World (an ode to my favorite hangouts)

Day 16: Little Gem Hangout (from the car)
Just like everyone in Seinfeld congregated at the diner, and everyone from How I Met Your Mother met up at the pub, I, too, seem to seek out a common hangout that I can use to meet up with friends. It turns out that I’ve had several favorite hangouts now all over Read more

Day 7: Technology Kills the Travel Experience

While my scorn for the setup down under may impact my feelings a bit, the real reason is because I feel it takes away a bit of the wonder and mystery that goes with traveling to far-flung places.
