Lover of stationery, zines, and all printed matter documenting my adventures in travelogues.

  • Tucson


    It’s good to be back in Tucson. Tucson is sort of my second home, after all the other places I have lived before. We came during February and we couldn’t be happier to get away from the negative temperatures in Vermont. I ate my body weight in Mexican food, which I really missed, especially birria.…

  • Manhattan


    I had a great day in the city with my in-laws. We played mini-golf, got fancy pastries, went to a photography museum, and ended the night with Korean BBQ.

  • Phoenix


    My sister got married in Phoenix, which made it the third time I have gone in three years. I’ve always had Tucson loyalty but Phoenix is slowly winning me over with the food and bars. Yeah, it’s that easy for me to love a city.

  • Las Vegas

    Las Vegas

    Las Vegas has always had a special place in my family. I think Nevada occupies that space for many families in the American Southwest. Disneyland or a theme park is an expensive ordeal that requires planning. Vegas is kind of a place your exhausted parents can get the whole family packed in to the car…

  • Tucson


    For this year’s climate-poclypse, Casey and I headed to Tucson. We packed up everything of importance into our car and drove twelve hours southeast. The wildfires were only a few miles away from us. We ended up staying two weeks. We didn’t do much while there because it’s wasn’t really a vacation. However, it’s still…

  • Philadelphia


    One of the best things about having a family member an official tour guide is all. the. discounts! She gets comped to go to museums all the time because she brings large groups of students there. So, following her around a new city is a lot of fun. Rusty took us to Philadelphia. We had…

  • New York City

    New York City

    I’ve lost track of the times I’ve been to New York City. If I had never met my partner (who’s from New York), I probably would not have had the chance to see it in all the different ways that I have. I don’t know if summer or winter in the city is better. For…

  • Phoenix


    Most of my time spent in Arizona is in Tucson. I went to school there for two years and all my cousins live there. Tucson is low-key and funky. Phoenix feels more corporate, cleaned-up, and built out. I definitely prefer Tucson even if it doesn’t have much of the same conveniences that a large city…

  • Cleveland

Before going there, I heard from a lot of people that it would be boring. They were so wrong. I met the most amazing, sweetest Ohio…

  • British Columbia

    British Columbia

    When I was about eighteen, I set off with my grandpa and fifty other retirees in a stinky tour bus all Canadian national parks. I’ve also written about the time I toured the US on a bus. Hadn’t I learned my lesson?! The result was a chaotic and unforgettable time. I signed up thinking it…
