Check out this profile of me in The Atlantic by the amazingly talented Ruth Margalit. (She also coincidentally has a new feature out in The New Yorker, An Exile in the Corn Belt, that I loved reading.)

If you’re new to my site, here’s where it all started. I’m linking to my Tumblr for now so it’s easier to read chronologically, but follow along on this blog – and my social media – for more up to date posts, which I swear there will be soon!

The Perfect 7-Day Itinerary in Melbourne

August 27th 2015

It’s a destination that rivals New York in terms of its culinary scene, New Orleans with its architectural charm, and L.A. for epic coastal views. Not to mention its distinction of being the world’s most livable city four years in a row. If you’re headed down under, Melbourne is an ideal starting point for a trip up the Australian coast, or the perfect place to spend a week. Here’s the perfect seven-day itinerary.

Burning Man!

I have 15+ pages of writing on Burning Man thus far but will spare you until it’s a bit more cohesive.

Travel Is…

June 18th 2013

“Travel is little beds and cramped bathrooms. It’s old television sets and slow Internet connections. Travel is extraordinary conversations with ordinary people. It’s waiters, gas station attendants, and housekeepers becoming the most interesting people in the world. It’s churches that are compelling enough to enter. It’s McDonald’s being a luxury. It’s the realization that you may have been born in the wrong country. Travel is a smile that leads to a conversation in broken English. It’s the epiphany that pretty girls smile the same way all over the world. Travel is tipping 10% and being embraced for it. Travel is the same white T-shirt again tomorrow. Travel is accented sex after good wine and too many unfiltered cigarettes. Travel is flowing in the back of a bus with giggly strangers. It’s a street full of bearded backpackers looking down at maps. Travel is wishing for one more bite of whatever that just was. It’s the rediscovery of walking somewhere. It’s sharing a bottle of liquor on an overnight train with a new friend. Travel is ‘Maybe I don’t have to do it that way when I get back home.’”

February 5th 2013

I’m traveling again and it feels so good!! If you noticed my recent pictures, I was out in Lake Tahoe for a long weekend where I got to see my best friend from middle school, explore the Northwest and start making headway on my 2013 itinerary.

The whole weekend was incredible—from skiing the Sierra Nevadas to surreal sunsets on the lake and my first snowshoeing excursion. Also, In-N-Out Burger. Check it:
