And This I Offer

  First, political news that is unsettling and divisive, then another shooting in Southern California, and now a tremendous fire in Northern California near where my family lives.

Cheap Holiday Ideas: 8 Alternative Budget Vacation Deals

Updated: 11/8/2018 | November 8th, 2018 While many of us dream of traveling the world (or at least taking a few months off from work in pursuit of adventure), it’s not always feasible, even for those with the best of intentions. A lot of things can get in the way. I frequently talk about long-term travel and round-the-world trips, but I know that realistically, not everyone can or wants to enjoy this style of travel. I don’t think traveling the world is hard, but I also know that what I do isn’...

Americans should travel domestically

It’s easy to make friends in the Midwest. Not that the concept of friendly people in the middle states is groundbreaking or anything, but it really is true. This is how I ended up hotboxing an F-150 in a Ft. Wayne parking lot outside a dive bar called the Brass Rail. Phil, my hot-boxing host, was the bartender at a music venue I’d been to earlier in the night. “You came all the way from Miami to FORT WAYNE?” the burly, bearded bartender said when I ordered a beer and told him I was visiting. ...

Reasons to go to Finland in winter

When winter hits northern Finland, the sun makes itself scarce. It can stay below the horizon for two months… or longer. You might wonder why anyone would go there at that time of year. In fact, Finland is a magical place in the darker months, where blankets of snow stretch as far as you can see, purple and orange sunrise hues last for hours, and lit candles decorate every window. Add classic activities like reindeer sleigh rides, skiing, and hanging with Santa Claus, and Finland is the ultim...
