Traveling the World via my Stomach

Travel has always been a part of my DNA. Long before the adult gypsitis set in (yes, I made that up), and despite the fact that I was in a military family living all over the country and the world, I traveled through books. As a voracious reader, I went to the far corners of the world, soaked in the sights and sounds and learned about culture and history through the written word. At eighteen … [Read more...]

Seattle in Photos

Now that Jessica is on the road to recovery, Mr. Misadventures and I are feeling a certain sense of freedom! We took our ability to go away for the night together and headed to Seattle for a few days spanning New Years and my birthday.  It was a quick trip mainly focused on photography and eating, I know, what else is new? Mr. Misadventures had mapped out several spots that he was interested in … [Read more...]

AFAR Experience Seattle – Day 3 Coffee and a View

Sunday morning bright and early the AFAR Experiences group headed to Caffé Vita Coffee Roasting Company in Capitol Hill to talk a little coffee and a little pot.  Not the pot you pour your coffee into, but marijuana. To start, we were offered a cup of delicious green roasted Caffé Vita coffee as we waited for head coffee buyer, Daniel Shewmaker, to share a little about coffee buying and … [Read more...]

AFAR Experience Seattle – Misadventures in Foraging

After an exploratory morning at MOHAI and a fun stop at Love City Love, us AFAR Experiencers broke out into individual excursions for an afternoon of more intimate encounters with Seattle.  There were a lot of interesting options to choose from, but my heart stopped when I saw the name Langdon Cook. In May 2012 I came back from having the meal of a lifetime at The Willows Inn on Lummi … [Read more...]

AFAR Experience Seattle – Exploring MOHAI

After a fantastic kick-off event welcoming us to Seattle the previous evening, the AFAR Experiences group began a super-charged day 2 at the amazing MOHAI (Museum of History and Industry) before it opened.  Having an entire museum to yourself is a gift, a rare one indeed. Prior to letting us loose in the museum we learned a little more about Seattle's incredible history (I might be a little … [Read more...]

AFAR Experience Seattle – The Opening

I may be an AFAR Ambassador and Local Expert, but I was smitten with AFAR way before I became either.  I love the magazine and the principles in which it was created.  I am an advocate for the charity work they do with the AFAR Foundation, can’t think of a better way to open up the hearts and minds of children than to give them the opportunity to travel. When the third part of the AFAR … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #153: Pike’s Place Street Musician

Isn't that a little bit amazing?  The music he was playing wasn't half-bad either! Unlike this guy who is gracefully multi-tasking, I am falling way behind on blog stuff as I try to re-enter the rush of metropolitan life.  Ten days on the road in the Southwest tends to slow you down a bit! Being that I had practically no cell service and very limited internet access I did not read a single blog … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #152: Pike's Place Bikes

Mr. Misadventures and I stopped for an afternoon in Seattle on our way back from The Willows Inn on Lummi Island.  The weather was gorgeous so we went for a walk around the Pike's Place market area in search for some oysters.  On the walk back we passed by these bikes and I liked the angle looking up at them with the famous Pike's Place Market sign in the background. How about you?  Have you been … [Read more...]
