Reasons Why You Should Travel by Train

10 Comments 09 July 2014

I’ve clocked 125 hours on the train in the past ten months. Ninety-six of those hours were spent on a single trip from Austin, Texas, to Syracuse, New York. The train became my preferred form of travel after flying started setting off all kinds of anxiety alarms. The experience of going to the airport and [...]

Stories of Strangers on the Train: The Veteran

1 Comment 26 June 2014

I met a lot of people on my recent 96-hour train trip. I shared a story about the old man who looked like the main character in Up. He was traveling to Chicago from San Antonio, heartbroken after arriving the day after his sister had passed away. He was tiny and had an infectious giggle. Though [...]

5 Comments 18 June 2014

Last week, I took a 48-hour train trip from Austin to New York. Some of you have been following my adventures on social media (thanks for coming along for the ride!), but I wanted to share some more stories on my blog from the tracks. Amtrak didn’t pick me for their Amtrak Residency, so I [...]

Hipster Travel: Sunken City, the Neighborhood That Fell Into the Ocean

2 Comments 03 June 2014

Last weekend, I jumped in my car and drove to LA, like a goddamn fool. I’ve been a huge pussy about flying and after crying like a little bitch about whether or not I should buy a last minute flight or make the 42-hour roundtrip car ride to LA, I decided to toughen up, throw [...]

2 Comments 13 May 2014

This weekend, we celebrated my boyfriend’s half birthday. I had a written the story as to why we celebrated his birthday in May instead of on his actual birthday in November, but when I read this post to him, he said, “You don’t have to put EVERYTHING on the Internet.” And because I don’t want [...]

Hipster City Travel: Buffalo, New York

149 Comments 25 February 2014

Back in December, the Washington Post published a completely arbitrary list of what was in for 2014 and out for 2013. In addition to ridiculously passé things such as Russia and food stamps, Austin was also considered “out” for 2013. In its place? Buffalo, Mother-f’ing New York. Oh, how I laughed! How could Buffalo, New York, [...]

The Ten Coolest Things That Happened in Austin in 2013

6 Comments 13 December 2013

It’s that time of year again- time where everyone makes butt-loads of year-end lists. Considering I have the pop culture-viewing habits of a 68 year-old prisoner in a low-security prison, I’m completely unqualified to create a “best of” list in the fields of film, music or literature. If left to my own devices, my “Top [...]

Thanksgiving 2013: The Time We Got Lost on Death Mountain a.k.a. Enchanted Rock

5 Comments 04 December 2013

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Our Thanksgiving involved us getting lost in the woods, narrowly escaping an attack from a porcupine and my boyfriend turning 40 and then promptly falling down and breaking his rib. Because that’s what you do when you turn 40. Geoff wanted to celebrate this rite of passage by [...]
