THE INTERNET'S LEADING ENABLER OF TRAVEL ADDICTION.

Welp, this is highly personal: Travel vs Vacation:

August 2nd, 2016

This may come as a surprise to many of my tens of dear readers, but: I am alive and well and although I haven’t posted on here for over a year (SORRY MOM) I have been working super hard, which has kept me in pasta and wine, so it’s all good. But my big news […]


How to Travel Like A Spy:

June 23rd, 2015

Last December, WikiLeaks did one of its notorious document dumps and revealed some information that frankly thrilled me. The WikiLeaks document release included two reports from the CIA whose titles sound like pitches for summer blockbusters: “CIA Assessment on Surviving Secondary Screening at Airports While Maintaining Cover” (dated September 2011) and, even more up my […]


A New Year’s Eve:

January 1st, 2015

I went to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. My curriculum involved a grueling schedule of “studio” classes, eight hours a day, three days a week, on Manhattan’s Theater Row. In between classes the various studio groups would gather in a kind of green room to eat or rehearse or whatever people did in the […]


What It Feels Like To Explore A New Place: Favignana, Sicily:

July 18th, 2014

Ed. Note: Hi! I’m reposting this while I’m getting ready for a massive post. Enjoy! I just realized that in my heated fervor surrounding an epic day trip to Levanzo last year, I forgot all about poor Favignana. It’s one of the three Egadi Islands accessible by boat from Trapani, Sicily (the third being Marettimo). […]


On Anniversaries and Milestones:

October 13th, 2013

October has been a month of anniversaries and milestones, and I’m not sure why they feel connected to me. Which means that the universe is telling me to write about them. So, here we go. Let’s see where we end up! First, yesterday was my parents’ wedding anniversary. They’ve been married for 45 years. Not […]


On Embracing Your Preconceived Notions:

August 30th, 2013

Did you know that I went to Berlin two years ago? I did. I spent a little over two weeks there, on the cusp of winter. It was unbearably cold, and dark; it looked like 9:30am all day until night fell in mid-afternoon. I arrived in darkness after an 11-hour train ride, during which I […]


On Homesickness:

August 20th, 2013

Ed. note: I’m reposting this after a wave of recent homesickness, but it was originally posted on June 28, 2011. There are these weeds in Rome – I’m sure they’re in other places too, but I’ve only ever seen them in Rome – that have long stems that look furry, but they’re prickly. If you […]


My French Supermarket:

July 5th, 2013

Here is a map I drew of my Carrefour supermarket. The one that has random American products and where the stunning checkout girl came out to me. Because our apartment has only a dorm-sized fridge with no shelves inside, I am forced to go here at least every other day. It is full of nooks […]


Um… Why Isn’t Everyone Taking A French Barge Vacation?:

July 1st, 2013

Note: I’m reposting this because my friends could use more visitors to their Canal du Midi vacation barge, so if anyone you know is looking for a truly unique French vacation experience, GET ON IT! Mel and I bade our sad goodbyes to Hotel d’Europe in Avignon, and armed with pastries and coffee from our […]


Ode to a Traveler:

January 2nd, 2013

My friend John, pictured above, would have been 44 today. Join me after the jump to learn about the influence he had on my life, in a re-posting of something I wrote a month after his death in 2008. In the last four days, I have received news of the deaths of five people I […]
