We ate a LOT of food in New York in July. After all, we were there for 30 days. During the week, we walked to get coffee each morning, at breakfast and lunch at home, and went out for dinner to cut back on our spending (even though our lodging was completely free!) There were a few… Continue reading Where We Ate: New York City Edition

A Beginner’s Guide to New York’s Subway System
I’m not going to pretend like I’m some sort of expert. But I make it a point of understanding cities when I visit (part of the reason I love to travel), and learning how to use the transportation efficiently is part of the deal. My favorite transportation system in the entire world is London’s… Continue reading A Beginner’s Guide to New York’s Subway System
Nashville City Guide: 8th Ave/Melrose & Berry Hill
I’ve already included some of the most popular areas of town (12th South, the Gulch, Downtown, Germantown), but now i’m talking about my neighborhood – 8th Ave or the Melrose area, and we’ll throw in Berry Hill for fun. 10 years ago, I don’t even think I would drive down this road, other than… Continue reading Nashville City Guide: 8th Ave/Melrose & Berry Hill

Sounds totally legit, right? In the last couple of years, Germantown has really taken… Continue reading Nashville Neighborhood Guide: Germantown
Is Everything Bigger in Texas?
That’s what I’ve heard… but I’ve actually never been! (Unless you count long layover in the Dallas Airport… which I do not).I’m headed to the San Antonio area for work next week. Only for 3 days, and it will be pretty jam packed with work… not a lot of free time. We’ll be staying near… Continue reading Is Everything Bigger in Texas?
Charleston City Guide
Charleston – what can I say? You’re a gem.If you’re looking for somewhere beautiful, charming, relaxing, delicious & quaint, Charleston is the place for you. We stayed at a hotel in North Charleston, but I would suggest staying closer to the city center. The city is very walkable, and you’d be able to function without… Continue reading Charleston City Guide
