Our Last Road Trip

Our Last Road Trip This one was an expensive, drawn-out lesson. It took our two-week, one-way summertime drive from the Carnival Cruise port of Seattle to the driveway of our suburban Philly home to realize what we probably already knew, deep down, but didn’t want to admit. At least the […]

Arjana and Ivan and the Can’t Miss Jazz On The Carnival Legend in Alaska

Live jazz music is not the reason one gets themselves to Seattle, pays the extra cash for a balcony room, and cruises up the Inside Passage to Alaska. Hell, not even the succulent filet mignon and creamy sauce béarnaise from the Carnival Legend’s stunning Nouveau Restaurant is why we make […]

Stumbling Into Yellowstone’s Perfect Waterfall Rainbow From Artist Point

We were never supposed to be there. We were never supposed to see Yellowstone’s perfect waterfall rainbow, and by all rights we shouldn’t have had the privilege since we had no idea such a thing existed. Sometimes you need lady luck to shine down upon you when traveling. Had the […]

Spoiled Rotten on the Snake River

I didn’t have my first taste of BBQ until my late 20s. Throughout the next decade there would be occasions where I would offer up this curious nugget from my culinary back story to various people in mixed company. There was always a natural lead-in, I’m not that random (although […]

From Alaska to the Atlantic Down My Nervy Right Side

It’s 3:26 A.M. and I’m awake. This is my new normal. There’s a shooting pain coursing down my right leg thanks to a shifted disc getting too cozy with a nerve, like a drunk guy leaning on the shoulder of a young lady at a bar. He reeks of strong […]

Ottawa

We were beat tired. Tired like the punchlines from her kid sister’s joke book. The two of us, dad and daughter. We’d completely run out of steam. After a long night and early morning of driving… After 75 minutes of hurling ourselves around a frozen curling court… After hours spent […]
