Twelve Hours in…Hong Kong

This month, I’m counting down my top 27 adventures at 27. Next up: Hong Kong. Hong Kong is one of those cities I can never say no to, if even for a brief window of time. So when we found a flight back from our week in Bali with a 12-hour layover in HK, we jumped on the chance […]

Six Hours in…Caernarfon, Wales

The first thing we did upon arriving in the town of Caernarfon was to…promptly lock our keys in the campervan. Smooooth. To save our egos, I’d like to think that’s because of just how excited we were — wandering into cute Welsh towns on a magnificently sunny day can do that to you. After an […]

The 12 Pubs of Christmas à Paris

There are few times you can look back in your life and point to an exact moment and say, There. That’s when everything changed. For me, that was … a pub crawl. My first year in Paris, as most people know, was solidly blah. I didn’t like the city, I didn’t get the city — and had I […]

Two Days in…LA

How much can you really see with only two days in Los Angeles, a sprawling city the same size as Hong Kong, or a third of the state of Rhode Island? More importantly, how much do you really want to see, when you’re an East Coaster who “doesn’t really get” LA? Let’s find out. For […]

One Day in…Segovia

If you like aqueducts and suckling pigs, boy do I have the day trip for you. Segovia is a small town outside Madrid, about an hour’s drive or thirty minutes away on the fast train. It’s one of those towns so old and full of preserved historical goodness it’s been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage […]

An Accidental Year Around the World

The thing about accidentally going on a year-long round the world trip is that you don’t actually realize you’re on one…until it’s over. I mean, when you plan to travel long-term, you usually have a start date. You (usually) have an end date. You are aware that you are on An Adventure. Whereas for the […]

Two Days in…Dublin

There’s more to Dublin than Temple Bar. Here’s what to See, Do, and Eat if you have only two days in the Irish capital.

One Day in…Galway

It may not have the popularity of Dublin or the kissed-by-millions stones of Cork, but if you’re planning on traveling through Ireland, Galway is definitely worth a stop — if even for just one day.

Three Days in…Beijing

As a historically and culturally rich city, you could easily spend a week or more exploring Beijing – but if you’re short on time, three days is perfect for seeing the highlights of the city. Here’s my suggested itinerary.
