Going back in time at the Blitz Party

3 Comments 11 June 2013

There is no better city for a period-themed party than London. It seems to have sections that represent pretty much every era in its long history. For this reason, Ric and I felt like we had slipped back to the 1940s, long before even entering Great Suffolk Street Warehouse for the Blitz Party. It happened [...]

Preparing for an era party on a budget: Blitz

1 Comment 07 June 2013

I’ve never been to a city that does throw back parties as well as London. Maybe it’s because the city has such a long and rich history, maybe they just know how to party, but I love it. A “fancy dress” requirement is regular at private parties here and the themes are always so interesting, [...]

Creating their own genre of entertainment: Wam Bam Club

A seven-man jazz band playing swing music at the entrance, a complimentary glass of champagne after receiving my ticket and two big-chested men smiling and offering me a Lindt chocolate in red wrapping, I knew I was in store for a different sort of cabaret as soon as I arrived at the Bloomsbury Ballroom last [...]

I’ve never really cared too much about what luggage or backpack I own. In fact, my one backpack is from 2006 and still in perfect shape. My suitcase is on loan, well a Homer Simpson sort of loan as I borrowed it from my Uncle in 2007 and still haven’t returned it. I’ve seen people [...]

A day in London if money wasn’t an option

2 Comments 30 May 2013

When Expedia asked me to write about what I would do in London if money wasn’t an option, I have to say I jumped at the chance. Traveling the world for three years straight comes at a price, so I’ve always kept my budget very low, opting for hostels and shabby huts instead of suits [...]

Photo walking tour of Fitzroy-Melbourne

4 Comments 28 May 2013

No area of Australia is quite as quirky as Fitzroy. I heard about this section of Melbourne long before I visited the country. People said the coffee there is amazing, the street art is even better. It’s colorful, yet historic. The shopping is vintage and bars have interesting themes. It sounded like my sort of [...]

Where I’m off to in summer 2013

14 Comments 23 May 2013

There’s something in the air, literally. I’ve had this fascination with Montana since college. I don’t know where it came from, but I do remember the first time I voiced it. One night in college and I bumped into a guy I knew in grade school at Bob and Barbara’s in Philadelphia. He said his [...]

Borough Market Photo Essay

6 Comments 17 May 2013

Roasted duck sandwiches, wild boar and black truffle ravioli and freshly made chai, there is no better place in London to tour the tastes and smells of the city than Borough Market. Somehow I always end up here on my days off. Maybe it’s old world look of the market, which is located under London [...]

From elephant rider to Save Elephant Foundation, Thailand

6 Comments 16 May 2013

I had this vision of myself before visiting Southeast Asia, wearing a green dress, riding an elephant through the jungles of Thailand. It started with my love of animals, turned into a must-do for the region because of all the photos I’d seen of others doing the same and inevitably led to something purely selfish, [...]
