Photo Friday: San Francisco, California

Tweet I’m lucky that my seasonal job allows me to travel, but it’s always difficult to fit in “fun time” on a work trip. My recent jaunt to California was no different. I arrived into San Francisco on a balmy, overcast afternoon and, being the intrepid traveler I am, took BART into the city. I […]

Visiting Anchor Brewing Company in San Francisco

Tweet One of my few vices that I fully indulge when traveling is visiting breweries, along with art museums and street art. My first attempt of the trip was thwarted when I didn’t want to wait 45 minutes for a table at 21st Amendment Brewery. Instead, I tried my luck at signing up for a […]

Photo Essay: San Francisco’s Chinatown

Tweet When visiting the ethnic neighborhoods of big cities, it can sometimes feel more like Epcot than a real place where real people live. For example, there aren’t many Italians left in New York’s Little Italy, but there are plenty of restaurants claiming authenticity. I had the same reservations about San Francisco’s Chinatown. But it […]

Scenes from Rural Kentucky

Tweet As much as I’m a city girl, sometimes it’s nice to get out into nature. This was certainly the case during my trip to Kentucky back in November. Most of our visit was spent in the city of Lexington, but the final day brought us to the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill in nearby Harrodsburg. […]

Photos from the Morgan Library and Museum

TweetEvery trip to New York, I try to build in at least one day of exploring. I lost my day off this trip due to the snowstorm, but I woke up early before I flew home so that I could visit the The Morgan Library & Museum, which I’d read about on my friend Christine’s blog. […]

My Go To NYC Restaurants

Tweet If there’s one American city I’ve been to more than any other (that I haven’t lived in), it’s probably New York City. In the last few years, I’ve gone every six months and have my own little home in Hell’s Kitchen, particularly the few blocks between my hotel and the Javits Center. One of […]

Photo Friday: Frankfort, Kentucky

Tweet On my 21st birthday, my housemate wanted to buy me a drink. I told her I’d have whatever she was having, which is how I ended up drinking bourbon for the first time (after champagne, Hypnotiq, beer and assorted shots, naturally). I said it tasted like bandaids and promptly threw it up. This was […]

Photo Friday: Savannah, Georgia

Tweet Despite living less than 5 hours from the coastal city, I’ve only been to Savannah a handful of times. I rarely had the need when I lived in Charleston, as we had a beach of our own, but went on a few day trips. But since I launched This Is My South, I knew […]

My Favorite Eats of 2014

TweetI’ve been to five countries and countless cities this year, eating my way through the best food as I went. I think with my stomach at all times and when you flip through the photos from my trip, it shows. Since giving up dairy last November, I’ve had more limited options than I did in […]
