Worldly Fare: Try the World Morocco

As much as I love getting a Try the World box from somewhere new so I learn all about the cuisine, it's equally exciting to get a box from a country I've visited because it gives me an opportunity to reminisce and try making the cuisine I experienced for myself. I just received my latest delivery, this …

Local Adventures: Worldy Fare

One of the things I love about traveling is trying new food and beverages. While I don't think it's the be all, end all of learning about a new culture,  it's certainly an important part and one I've learned to appreciate over the years. I've always been a relatively adventurous eater, but more and more …

Impressed with Moroccan Hospitality

We aren't even there yet, and I'm already impressed with Moroccan hospitality. I have been hustling to get our itinerary finalized amid work, school, holidays and just life in general.

Literary Travels: Catching Up

Lately I've been trying to yet again come to terms with a fact of life that constantly plagues me; having to postpone one love for another. If I want to get married, I have to stop traveling and save money. If I want to have money, I have to stop sitting in my window seat …

Top Tens of Travel

When I was in grade school, I remember making top ten lists with my friends. Top ten boys, top ten songs, top ten movies, etc. The order was susceptible to change at any moment, but the idea was popular for years. I still find myself making similar lists today--facebook asks for my favorite movies/books/etc., my significant …
