On The Beach in Aberystwyth Wales

The light reaches the country. It does, it must, but we never saw the sun in Aberystwyth Wales. To be fair to Wales, as well as to the sun’s capacity to shine in all places at least some of the time, we had but one night and two days in […]

100 Steps For 100 Miles Along Hadrian’s Wall in England

Recently, I was asked, “Jeff, what’s your all-time favorite photo of your daughters?” Damn.

Eating For Pleasure

A day after we’d shared, at Bacaro in Liverpool, what objectively was the finest meal my family had ever, and I think it’s not unreasonable to say, the finest we may ever enjoy together, my wife turned to the girls and I as we bid adieu to the home of […]

My Passport To Visiting Philadelphia With Friends

This travel story was made possible thanks to Wyndham Rewards. When I was a teenager there was only one place I wanted to be: Philadelphia. The energy, foodie delights, art house movie theaters and, most of all, the live music scene of my hometown big city called out to me […]
