Behind the Curtain: April 2017

behind the curtain

Timna Park, Israel

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 things I’m obsessed with at the moment. Thanks for following along! Be sure to share what you’re loving this month below!


I’ve made my way entirely through the volumes of The Walking Dead graphic novels that my local library carries in e-book form and now I don’t know what to do with myself. The last one left off with a shocking ending so I guess I’ll have to buy the four other volumes. And while in Israel, I finished reading Truly Madly Guilty and started Waiting to Be Heard, the memoir by Amanda Knox. I know a lot of people don’t believe her, but after watching her Netflix documentary, I started to see the many holes in the prosecution’s story. To see what else I’m reading, check out my Goodreads Profile here.


I want to start S-Town but haven’t yet because I’m not prepared for another true crime story! I’m almost all caught up on Truth and Justice and when I do, then I’ll give it a chance. Tell me what else I should be listening to!


On my long flight to Tel Aviv, I watched so much good stuff, starting with Vice’s Abandoned: Detroit and Gaycation: Deep South. I finally watched La La Land, which I liked, but not as much as some of the other Oscar nominees. I also watched Westworld in its entirety. My sister recently got me into Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, an Australian show about a sassy female detective. And last night I watched Moonlight and wanted to cry it was so good.


In case you missed it, I FINALLY got a new logo for Caroline in the City. What you’ve been looking at for the last 9 years were headers that I made myself on Picnik, PicMonkey, and Canva. Now I left it up to the professionals and I’m pretty pleased with the result. It combines the fact that this is a city-focused blog with the direction I want to go in: responsible travel for millennials. I’ve also reorganized the navigation so that you can easily find what you’re looking for. The topics now tell you about the top types of posts I write here.

Prohibition Party

Israel was a whirlwind two weeks. I saw Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, the West Bank, and Eilat. More on all of those soon! I was only home for a few days when I hit the road again, this time to see my sister Sammi before she moved from North Carolina to Tennessee. She had a Prohibition-themed party and we really got into it. I got most of my outfit from Goodwill and we played around with my Podo as a photo booth.

Next up is a crazy spring and summer. I’ll be in south Georgia this weekend for a new gig and be throwing a bridal shower at my house next weekend. Then it’s more exploring my state. Next month, I’ll be in Huntsville for TBEX (say hi if you’ll be there!), then Chattanooga for my sister’s graduation, Dahlonega, and Charleston.


When it rains it pours. I recently was published by Roads and Kingdoms, started a gig with Flight Network, and continued work with Simply Buckhead, Explore Georgia, and I’ve taken on additional work from a client I worked for last year and will soon be sharing a personal story on Ravishly. See what else I’m working on via my Contently profile.
