Stuck in Paradise // Reflections of a World Traveler

Stuck in Paradise // Reflections of a World Traveler

“Things happen for a reason!”, a common phrase most or all of us have heard at some point. We hear it at work. We hear it at home. While we travel. On the road. It ultimately boils down to our perspective in life to really accept this statement. We often ask ourself, “How did I get here?”. For me, I believe it to be true beyond imagination. I would have never thought I...

Amtrak Across America, A First Experience

Travel by train has always been my favorite form of travel, even if my first train was in 2013 in Canada with Via Rail. Even before that, it’s always been my dream.

Me, although I get one year closer to the days of aching and prescription bottles, I feel so much better and happier as a person the more I see new...

Savannah, GA vs. Charleston, SC

History always has been, is, and always will be a favorite topic of mine, whether I am in a classroom, traveling or simply killing time at work or home. Nothing excites me more than to learn of the origins of a place, artifact, or even people. It could be down to the simplest thing such as the history of how popcorn became a symbol of film, the expansion of an empire, or the origins of a single...
