Records and Root Beer From Coast to Coast During An Alaska to Atlantic Epic Family Summer Vacation

The skeleton of our two week drive from Washington state to New Jersey has been assembled for sometime but now the connective tissue and some of the joints of those 14 sunny summer days we’ll spend behind the wheel of what will surely be a jam-packed Kia Sedona are finally, […]

The Woman With The Cigarette On The Beach

The phone dings, that familiar modern sound alerting us of something new, cutting through the hiss of onions sauteing in hot oil in the kitchen, breaking the still silence of a bedroom at night or, in this case, emanating from the lone back pocket of knit shorts with red and […]

Travel Photography: Giant’s Causeway Northern Ireland

Any time your family has the opportunity to visit a seaside archeological site created by a volcanic eruption from 60 million years ago that happens to also have a pretty rad mythology behind its creation, you kinda have to get there even if it means blowing past Belfast and your […]

The Perfect Day In Italy with Kids on the Island of Procida

It was many years prior but we’d once spent a portion of a single day in Naples and, frankly, that was plenty enough for me. Granted, the largest portion of the small-ish portion of that single day occurred mostly inside and within spitting distance of the city’s central train station, […]
