Love craft beer? Go to Grand Rapids. NOW.

Are you a beer snob? Are you tired of getting grief from your friends who still chug PBR and your dad who just doesn't see why you'd ever want to infuse beer with chili peppers? Truth it, it's a tough world out there for someone who doesn't drink shit for beer. But luckily, there's a safe haven for you --- a Utopia for beer snobs and craft brewers alike. But where is such a glorious, hoppy place? Grand freakin' Rapids.

The Daily Travel Podcast: Change Your Role in Life

Things are happening, folks. The episode with yours truly on The Daily Travel Podcast is live! It actually happened. 6 months into the travel writing game and I'm going to Germany and having my voice preserved forever on the Internet. But enough about me: let's talk about this episode, let's talk about Nathaniel, and let's talk about starting new, scary careers.

Ditch the Plane – Take the Train

Take a moment to think back to the last time you traveled by air. What was it like getting there? Finding reasonably-priced parking? Dealing with lines, gate changes, and hoping you remembered to bag all your liquids? After a few hours actually on the plane, how did you feel? Maybe miserable, cramped, frustrated, sleepy, or bored? And if you don’t shop in the petite section, bruise-kneed and highly irritable? I love airports, and I used to love flying, but more and more I’m having straight up irritating and distressing experiences. To travel home for the holidays this year, I decided to forgo that option and instead booked the cheapest sleeper ticket I could find. And now, after my first cross-country Amtrak ride, I never want to go back.
