Tweet Street art has become my favorite thing to discover in a new city. I was in Toronto for the Travel Blog Exchange conference and was staying at Planet Traveler near Kensington Market, a place ideal for spotting street art. And while in the past I’ve simply taken pictures of what I thought looked interesting, [...]

Tweet As an unabashed street art fan, I was excited to see what Miami had to offer. I had seen images of the famous Wynwood Arts District and immediately added it to my Ultimate Florida Road Trip itinerary. And while you can spot street art all around town, this is where the most famous works [...]
TweetAnyone who didn’t know me in high school might not guess that I am a not-so-closeted art history freak. I took AP Art History in high school (Team APAH for life!) and another class in college before I realized that I didn’t want to spend the next four years memorizing slides. But my passion for [...]
Tweet While Melbourne didn’t get a chance to impress me, I did appreciate the street art that makes the city so popular with the hip, artsy set. I had read about the so-called “graffiti alley,” better known as Hosier Lane, before visiting Melbourne but knew I had to track it down for myself. Located across [...]
Tweet Street art is the best way to experience a city’s pulse without stepping foot inside of a museum. I visited Porto, Portugal back in September for the Travel Bloggers Unite conference and was impressed at the display of public artworks next to hundred-year-old buildings. The one above was located down the street from Gallery [...]
Tweet My first day in Berlin wasn’t the best. I arrived on the morning train from Hamburg and checked into PLUS Hostel Berlin with enough time to make it to a 1 pm tour. Or so I thought. Instead, I got lost, got stuck in an elevator and missed my tour. I was so frustrated [...]
Tweet Sammi warned Rachel and I before we left that there would be a festival going on while we were there. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but once we arrived, we discovered that the Bele Chere Festival is one of Asheville’s biggest, with free concerts, artists and craftsmen and hundreds of [...]
Tweet This month, I lost a place that was very dear to me, a second home of sorts. Theatre in the Square, a community theater in my hometown of Marietta, Georgia, closed its doors after 30 years. I spent four years of my life in their Teen Ensemble, where I studied drama under director Susan [...]
Tweet Something I found fascinating about Sydney is that there are dozens of islands around it, mostly owned by the state government. Cockatoo Island, the largest of these islands, has had many lives, including stints as a prison for the thousands of convicts sent from England, a jail, an industrial school and a shipyard as late [...]
Tweet Adelaide was never really in the plans. There were no big tourist sites like in Sydney and we didn’t have friends there like in Melbourne. It was more like, “You want to keep going to Adelaide?” “Sure, why not.” I hadn’t formed the best opinion of the South Australian capital prior to visiting since [...]
