    Early Travel Days

    I haven’t always been diligent at taking photos in beautiful places. I’m not sure I picked up a camera with any serious intent until around 2006. Thanks to social media I’m able to collect pictures from my past travels from my friends. I got this photo from my freshman year of high school in Germany from a Facebook friend. We called ourselves the Muldenweg crew. What’s your earliest travel photo?…

    What’s in a Name?

    It took nearly 5 months for me to come up with the name of this blog. To be honest, blog was second.

Maybe I’ll get around to drinking it. Methodical Coffee. Greenville, SC…

    Breakfast in Sanya Bay

    Breakfast was the most important meal on my press trip to China last year. It was the only meal we had any control over. We spent the days visiting landmarks and popping into various restaurants for extremely lengthy, multi-course meals. Tables filled with various noodles, brothy soups and bony fish for dinner were a huge contrast from the meat based breakfasts in the hotel.  I loaded up on ham, bacon, fish and beef before heading out each day, in case…
