A Day Trip to Haifa

I’d barely gotten my bearings in Tel Aviv when a plan was hatched among my new group of hostel roommates. Two of us wanted to go check out Haifa, a city to the north, and decided to go the next day. But being the Queen of Dawdletown, I had a bit more work to finish […]

30 Things to Do Before Turning 30

As I sit down to write this year’s birthday post, I can’t believe how long I’ve been making these lists. My very first one was when I was on the cusp of turning 23, what seems like a lifetime ago now. I was living in Australia with my then-boyfriend. This year, I celebrate 29 from […]

In Search of the Good Life in Eilat

“It’s Always Sunny in Eilat,” read the promotional brochures. Before booking my trip to Israel, seeing the Red Sea had always been a dream, but I couldn’t explain why. Maybe it’s the biodiversity or the fact that it borders multiple countries. I’d never heard of Eilat before I signed up for a press trip to Israel’s […]

A Day in Charming Carmel, California

I vaguely recalled visiting Carmel (or Carmel-by-the-Sea, if you will) as a child and had the t-shirt with a whale on it to prove it. But when driving the Pacific Coast Highway a few months back, it was time for another visit. We’d spent the last few days in Monterey and had seen much of […]

My Atlanta Bucket List

I’m born and raised in the Atlanta, Georgia area. I grew up having tea with the Easter Bunny at the Ritz-Carlton, riding the Pink Pig, and chowing down at The Varsity before Braves games. But, if you can believe it, there’s so much that I’ve never done in my hometown, despite living here for the […]
