If you are the type of person who would travel to Louisville just to experience the Kentucky bourbon industry there, then you’ve probably already done your fair share of distillery tours. I was that person. I had been through the ‘this is how you distill liquor’ tour a million times, and was looking for something […]

How to Order and Enjoy Pintxos in San Sebastian
People are grabbing food, walking out and not paying. If that wasn’t confusing enough, I watch as no one behind the bar writes anything down or keeps track of anything. I wonder if this is akin to one of those super fancy restaurants when a waiter takes an order for six and never writes anything […]
Settling into Denver and Finding My Favorite Things
Every time I return from a trip, put the key in my doorknob, and open the door – a feeling of relief washes over me. I’m home. I can unpack and put my stuff back in its place, and kick my feet up on the couch and enjoy the process of having my own place […]
Three Ways To Experience Chilean Wine in Santiago
As we drove into the city of Santiago from the airport my mouth was agape. Santiago wasn’t at all what I was expecting. I was expecting Buenos Aires or Lima, but what I saw in front of me was a modern, clean city surrounded by nearby mountain peaks. The Andes mountains were so close around […]
Distillerie Fils Du Roy, A Story in a Bottle
Everyone knows that the best writers are storytellers. The best speakers are storytellers. The best museums tell a story. The best coaches are storytellers, the best leaders are storytellers, the best salespeople are storytellers. My favorite podcasts, (Moth and TED Talks) are storytelling podcasts. Everyone is a storyteller these days; it’s one of the buzz […]
How Many Ways Can You Eat Lobster?
I love lobster, like really L-O-V-E lobster – I would choose to eat lobster for my final meal if I had to. When I decided to go back to the Canadian Maritimes, it wasn’t the beautiful hikes, welcoming Acadian culture, seaside villages, or biking trails that had me most excited; it was the opportunity to […]
Oyster Farming and Tours in Maine
I’ve been around a lot of farmers in my life. Both of my grandfathers were farmers, and many of my uncles. Abigail Carroll doesn’t fit the normal farmer role; she studied French and Spanish literature in college. Abbey may only have 6.8 acres to farm, but she is definitely a farmer. She uses a little […]
Celebrating the Maine Blueberry
I heard the woman yell out to the little kids passing by, “Learn about farming AND get to see baby pigs!” Even though I knew her sales pitch wasn’t for adults, she had me at “baby pigs”. It’s hard to compete with the glitz of midway rides, cotton candy, and corn dogs; but the people […]
Is Cooking at Sea the Hardest Place to be a Chef?
Crash! A pan slides off the counter, as Chef Max grabs at air. He was one second too late to catch it as it went plummeting to the floor and the chopped veggies end up all over the kitchen floor. I could see Max immediately go into ‘plan B’ mode. The ship was traversing through […]
Sioux Falls South Dakota in 24 Hours
Sometimes the best stuff is right in front of you and you don’t notice it. I’ve always wondered how those relationships that start as friends and end up as lovers work. You know, the kind where you are friends for years, and then suddenly one day you look at this person and have different feelings […]
