HCC: I’m hopping on a plane to China to celebrate the completion of the book on April 15th. My sister is coming with me, and I’m visiting my friend Jen who left New York to live and work in Beijing. My favorite part about having a blog is all the amazing people we meet virtually (and sometimes...

Road Trip Alternatives

Road Trip Alternatives
by Molly Fergus I’ll admit it, I’m lucky. I travel the country for one year, all-expenses paid, and I get to call it a job. But landing a gig as a hotdogger certainly isn’t the only way to travel the U.S. on a shoestring. Whether you want to hitch a ride in some other crazy car or befriend...

How To Plan a Round-the-World (RTW) Trip

How To Plan a Round-the-World (RTW) Trip
Okay, so the title of this post is a little bit of a misnomer. No matter how much advance thought you put into it-how many guidebooks you read, excel charts you create or the number of seasoned traveler whose brains you pick-it’s all but impossible to plot out your entire adventure while sitting...

What you don’t know about Kansas City, MO

What you don’t know about Kansas City, MO

Love, Marriage, and Wine

Love, Marriage, and Wine
My sister, Sara, got married last month. Rather than celebrate her dwindling days as a single woman by hiring a cheesy stripper to perform (why pay for something when a woman can get it for free? Ha!), or going on a beer-fueled pub crawl, we opted to do a wine tour through upstate New York’s Finger...

Is Venice Really Sinking?

Is Venice Really Sinking?
Earlier this month, my boyfriend Jeff and I were invited to join a group of journalists on a five day whirlwind tour of three Italian cities-Venice, Florence and Rome. I’ve been trying to stay close to home lately (writing the book has been a study in discipline for me, as there’s always...
