Here are some of my favorite posts from past adventures in travel, food, love, and life... 

The Tale of the 44 Gates

Or an alternate title could be "How I got to San Jose, CA via Alaska."  I’ve been traveling via airplanes since the tender age of seven. On many occasions, I’ve had layovers.

Driving, Flying, and Punching Fear in the Face... Again
