The “American” Experience, Part 5: We Conquered Vienna

For those who don’t know, I spent about two years freelance writing for a travel website. I wrote probably a couple of hundred articles all about tourist sites in Vienna.

The American Experience, Part 3: Epic Road Trip! (5 Tips)

So Pittsburgh was done and forever behind us. And it was now time to head on back to New York for all sorts of fun. But first, how in the world to get home? Flying is expensive… and wasn’t even all that pleasant last time. Train? Just as expensive. Bus? Yuck. Road Trip! We decided […]

The Insecurity of Security

Over the last decade I have been overwhelmed by security overhauls, both physical and now virtual. One thing has become apparent time and time again. In most of these situations, there has been a ton of work only to make everyone feel highly inconvenienced. Yet I have no evidence that anything is actually more secure […]

The Whole World from Home: Domestically International

My Bucket List Years ago I sat down to write a bucket list. When the ideas slowed, I hopped online to see what other people around the world had come up with.
