Sichuan – China

It’s rare that I meet people who travel to China, or much less want to travel to places in China outside of Shanghai or Bangkok or Hong Kong. It’s one of those places that just feels so different that it’s hard to imagine what it might be like to visit. Even as a person who […]

Land of the Long White Cloud

Alex and I spent the first two months of 2017 on the other side of the world. We boarded a plane on New Year’s Eve and landed in Melbourne on January 2 where we welcomed summer weather and a much-needed break from American politics. We had been in New Zealand and Australia just two years […]

In October, Alex and I flew to Maine for a few days of autumnal bliss before I spent a week at a filmmaking workshop in Rockland. I had never been to Maine before this trip, and it’s one of the loveliest states I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. We started with a day in Portland, […]

In July I took off for a couple of weeks for a little work-cation making my way west and north. I spent the Fourth with dear friends in Denver and pretended to be a local working in coffee shops and eating good food in Seattle. I rounded out the trip by taking the Greyhound to […]

Southwest Road Trip

After two months exploring New Zealand and China in the beginning of 2017, Alex and I figured we ought to give our home country a little bit of exploration before it was time for Alex to start a new job in April. We had been talking about doing a two or three-week long US road […]

2016 was tumultuous for a lot of reasons (cough, politics), but personally, it was maybe the best year I’ve spent on this earth. I quit my full-time job, flew alone to the other side of the world, and spent three of the most glorious and hardest months of my life backpacking in Southeast Asia. I […]

The Moments In-Between

The first half of this year was such an exhausting whirlwind. I was all over the planet, and didn’t really stop to take a breath until September hit. Autumn, for me, was a chance to appreciate the monotony and stability that come with routine — things I typically take for granted. I cooked more, I spent […]

Before this year, I’d never revisited any of the countries I’d travelled to. As the list of places I want to go gets longer and sometimes stranger (I won’t lie — Iran is pretty high on my list right now), it’s hard to justify going to a place you’ve already been. Thailand was the first place […]

I lasted two months in the US before I boarded a plane to fly across the ocean again. This time, I wasn’t alone, and this time it was easier to say “goodbye” as my sister, Erin, and I would be away for just one month. We had a family trip to Ireland planned for early […]

Good Living Tour 2016

This year’s Good Living Tour storytelling trip in June left me tired and sunburned and just about satisfied my road trip quota for the summer. It was also a reminder of how beautiful my home state is, which was especially nice after being away for most of this year. Our time spent driving through cornfields and down small […]
