The capital city of Santo Domingo is highly underrated when it comes to tourism to the Dominican Republic. Many people use it as a jumping off point for adventures further north while others skip it altogether in favor of the resorts of Punta Cana. But I loved it. The ancient architecture, the energy of the calles, […]
It’s the most delicious time of the year! I love looking back at the last 12 months to see what all deliciousness I was able to consume. This has become a regular feature here (see 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015). In this year alone, I traveled to one country and 13 states. You might be […]
In the coming months, I hope to write more long-form content. I wrote this story for the Travel Blog Success Travel Writing for Bloggers course about my former home. If you’re interested in the course, see more info below. For four years of my life, I lived in two different brightly colored row houses that […]
Sonoma, Napa, Russian River Valley. All of these names likely come to mind when you think of California wine country. But where the hell is Lodi? I wasn’t sure myself before I went, flying into Sacramento and then driving the hour through fields lined with grapes and rose bushes. The San Joaquin Valley town is the […]
It’s that time of year again! It’s time to recommend my favorite travel products for the traveler in your life. I have traveled at least a week out of every month this year so I’ve tested these products firsthand. These are all items that I regularly use and most are no more than $150. As with […]
In case you didn’t know, theme parks aren’t just for kids anymore. Universal Orlando Resort is the perfect spot for a girls weekend, especially if your friends are geeks like mine. Between the rides, the food and drinks, and the hotels, you and your squad are sure to have a blast, whether it’s for a […]
I’ve come to look forward to these monthly posts about what I’m into beyond travel because there’s so much more to my life than where I go, despite the fact that it’s something I love. It’s funny how many people respond with their obsessions or agree with mine! As with last month, I’m sharing the […]
If you saw the last few editions of Travel Writing Round Up, welcome back! A lot are repeats from last month, but new posts are denoted with stars. I have checked all the links to ensure that they are still valid, but please let me know if I have missed one. I’ve also created an open Google Document where […]
Optional activity: Brett Robinson Coastal Triathlon When the email came across my inbox, I considered it only briefly before saying yes. It was an add-on to a press trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama, a place I hadn’t been in well over a decade. I considered myself to be a moderately fit person, if not a bit overweight, […]
The roads through southern Wyoming are remote and unforgiving. It might be miles of prairie and rocks before you see any sort of structure. The ones you see are old and decaying. This is ghost town country. And after a week spent in Lander, we drove 40 minutes south in search for them. Atlantic City […]
