Houston Eats: Lee’s Fried Chicken and Donuts

If trying a double donut fried chicken sandwich isn’t on your bucket list then you’re not thinking far enough outside the box. I mean, come on, what are you waiting for?! Every time I visit Houston I’m continually amazed at the endless, and I mean endless, food options. From unique hole-in-the-walls to chain restaurants to food […]

Looking to experience the quirkier side of Houston? Visit the Art Car Museum for a unique and unforgettable experience.

A Quirky Visit to the Houston Art Car Museum

One of my goals on my trip to Houston was to explore not only the most popular spots in the city, but also to step off the beaten path and explore the quirkier side of Houston. When my sister told me about the Art Car Museum or as it’s better known in Houston, the “Garage […]

Brunch at Michael Forbes Bar & Grille in Brookside

Since I made exploring more of Kansas City one of my goals for this year, I’ve started to branch out and try some local restaurants in different neighborhoods around KC. Kansas City’s annual Restaurant Week happened in mid-January which allows you to try a 2 or 3 course meal at hundreds of restaurants around KC […]

Although this particular shop is a Belgian Friterie (fry […]

Kansas City from the Top of the Liberty Memorial

Everyone from Kansas City knows that the Liberty Memorial is one of the best spots for incredible views of KC. Having grown up in Kansas City pretty much my whole life, it’s kinda sad that I never made it to the top of the Liberty Memorial until last year. Better late than never, right? The […]

Watching the Sunset from the Templo de Debod in Madrid

Watching the Sunset at the Templo de Debod in Madrid

Who would have thought there would be an ancient Egyptian temple right smack dab in the middle of Spain’s capital, Madrid? I definitely didn’t. I stumbled across the Templo de Debod (Temple of Debod in English) while I was studying abroad in Madrid a couple years ago and it quickly became one of my favorite […]

Travel Plans for 2016 and New Changes on Travel Far, Eat Well

One year ending and another year beginning always brings feelings of reflection and anticipation. Thinking back upon the past year and reflecting on all that you accomplished (or didn’t accomplish). In my case, I spent a lot of time thinking about all the places I traveled to over the past year and all the new […]
