What’s that? She hadn’t posted any Voyages since New York City in 2017, and now we have two in the span of 2 months? Has she quite lost her mind? Well, joke’s on you, dear reader. I never found my mind to begin with! I will admit that this is a bit of a cheatContinue reading “Voyages: Blue Ridge Parkway [@NorthCarolina]”
Over four years of living down here in North Carolina, and I finally made the trip out west to visit Biltmore. Of course, I am writing this post a few weeks later, from my current home built on Catawba and Sugaree land, about an estate that was built on Cherokee land, while thinking back toContinue reading “Voyages: Biltmore Estate [@NorthCarolina]”
Remember when my Voyages used to feature little-to-no words? Yeah, me neither. Work commitments recently packed me up and sent me off to the Big Apple for a week. New York City isn’t my favorite place on earth, but I knew that I’d have some time to kill so I wanted to make the bestContinue reading “Voyages: New York City [@NYNY]”
About three things I was absolutely positive. And “I love Forks” was every single one of them.
Baby’s first trip out West! That’s right. Until this year, the furthest west I had ever been in my life was probably Pennsylvania. But my best friend (the one who went to New Orleans with me) recently moved out to Seattle to start her real life grown-up… life. And naturally I had to get outContinue reading “Voyages: The Emerald City [@SeattleWA]”
Last weekend I had a hankering to get away from the city. My usual preference would be to go to the ocean but that trip is more of a commitment down here so the second best choice was to get up into the mountains. Are you ready for the tale of another hysterical attempt atContinue reading “Voyages: Hickory & Blowing Rock [@NorthCarolina]”
This was an adventure literally 5 years in the making. Since we met, my best friend Robin and I have been wanting to go down to New Orleans, Louisiana. Last weekend we finally made the jump and road tripped from my newfound home in North Carolina to spend a few days in the French Quarter. 10+ hours, each way. 700+ miles, each way. Too many mixed CDs to actually count, each way. And quite a lot of new experiences in between. Enjoy!
The local West Corkonians joke about how everyone is always ready to talk about the weather here, but I love it and I feel like I fit right in with it so – allow me to tell you (mostly via showing you) about the beautiful Sunday afternoon I had wandering around the estate a fewContinue reading “Voyages: Welcome to Inish Beg! – Part II [@WestCorkIRL]”
Note: Remember back in the good old days when you’d have to avoid a lot of images on a web page because loading them with dial-up was a nightmare? I wanted to warn you just in case you’re not all initiated into decent wi-fi / 4s / 1080p horsepower or whatever the heck the good internet is theseContinue reading “Voyages: Skibbereen & Baltimore [@WestCorkIRL]”
With a little less than a week gone by since I left the States, being at Inish Beg has already made me realize that it’s not so much the time to be alive as it is the place to be living. I absolutely adore this new short-term home of mine and I’ve been receiving many impatient inquiriesContinue reading “Voyages: Welcome to Inish Beg! – Part I [@WestCorkIRL]”
