The Cabins at Mazama Village and Wizard Island Tours at Crater Lake National Park

There’s a place you’ve gotta see in this country. It’s a lake inside a volcano with an island inside of it with another volcano on it, and it is even more remarkable than it sounds. You’ve gotta see Crater Lake in southern Oregon once in your life at least. You’ve […]

The Donuts and Doughnuts of Portland Oregon

I have a complicated relationship with donuts. And by complicated, I mean abusive. For example, I never knew chocolate frosted cake donuts could, legally, file a restraining order. Listen, I’ve never had a sip of alcohol — not a single beer — and I’ve never smoked a cigarette. I’m also […]

For those, like us, who’d never been to the Big Island of Hawaii before and who, like us, had a very specific and extremely idyllic flowery vision of what Hawaii would look like upon arrival, the drive from Kona’s outdoor airport to The Fairmount Orchid can be more than a […]
