Looking for Love

Globe

Hello Virtual Travel Buddies! It’s, once again, time for another vote. As I’m currently homeless and traveling full-time, they’re coming a little faster now. It’s been fun and interesting (definitely not warm) spending Christmas drinking Glüwein with the Germans. I’m now looking at future holidays and one coming up soon after the new year is […]

I’m Dreaming of an Unplanned Christmas

Mulled Wine

Gutentag! The voting for the fifth Drop Me Anywhere vote is now closed. You have spoken and I’ll be drinking Glüwein within the next couple of weeks. If you didn’t read the article which this vote was based on, you can read 10 Drinks Around the World here. “Glüwein is a mulled wine with citrus, […]

Gratitude

Thank You

I would like to give thanks for a few things.

First, I’m thankful for wheels on luggage. I know it’s hard to believe but, a long time ago in a galaxy not so far away, people were expected to carry their bags. Yup, while cavemen had invented the wheel so many years ago, it took millions more to get them put on luggage. That, my friends, is the definition of “eternity.”

Oh Me, Oh Maya

Mayan Pyramid

The latest Drop Me Anywhere vote is now closed and you, my Virtual Travel Buddies, have told me where to go (better you, than the guy I accidentally cut-off in traffic). This month’s vote, Ancient Civilizations, was inspired by the preparation to sell my house and all the “stuff” in it. It seems many ancients […]

Out With the Old and In With the Older

I’m selling my house! Why? Well, as my refrigerator magnet says, sometimes you just have to leap and hope the net will appear (yes, I’m a student of refrigerator magnet philosophy). I made the decision following the first Drop Me Anywhere trip. You see, I had this idea for Drop Me Anywhere and, while I […]

On a Wing and a Prayer

Top of the morning to ya Virtual Travel Buddies! I trust you slept well dreaming of leprechauns and Guinness (apparently your leprechauns are drunk). With thirty-six hours at home between a personal trip to LA and my flight to Ireland, I spent the day packing and clearing up some last minute challenges. One challenge would […]

The Land of Leprechauns

It’s that day again, or shall I say night. Yes, it’s the night I drink a glass of fine, single malt scotch whiskey. “What?” you say, “I thought that was pretty much every night.” Well, that’s where you’re wrong. Sometimes I have a glass of red wine instead of the scotch. Okay, okay, here and […]

What’s New?

Well, hello there Virtual Travel Buddies. Just because I’m not currently traveling doesn’t mean I’m not thinking about you. Yes, I’m back in the lovely Phoenix summer frying my eggs on the sidewalk and baking cookies on the dashboard of my car. Oh, and deciding to sell my house so I can do a Drop […]

The Good, The Bad and The Thank-You’s – Oregon

Cathedral Park

It’s my final day in the Beaver State (yes, that’s their real nickname) and I head out to explore downtown St. John’s which is a neighborhood of Portland. Portland has many “neighborhoods,” you see. There’s “North,” Northwest,” the “Pearl District” and many more (Mr. Rogers would have a tough time figuring out where he lived). […]

Winner, Winner, Wine for Dinner

Voting is now closed and once again, you’ve chosen to think outside the box by choosing the “other” category and going with a write-in candidate. I knew I liked you! So, where will we be traveling? We’re heading to (insert proverbial drum-roll) the Willamette River in Oregon! It’s a bit strange that, with all of […]
