21 days later

Hello... My name is M and I'm a travel-holic...
They say admitting you have a problem is the first step to curing an addiction, but what happens when you don't want to cure one? It's been exactly 21 days since my last trip and I am  planning my next one and no I am not ashamed!!!
While fighting with google map, I had come up with an awesome idea! - I had realized that I am a genius when it comes to planning trips and should share it with the rest of the world. Sure, I might be the only person to read it and possibly few of my closest friends & family since I will be forcing them to do so, but at least it will give me a much needed break from currently deciding between a beg bug infested hotel and one that's located slightly further from Beagle Street.
For those of you who are a bit confused, Beagle Street is the most famous street in Memphis (yep, I googled it and much like you until I began planning my trip down south, I had no idea).
You have to forgive me and please understand that I had never had any experience with blogging, but I can assure you I have had my share of travels...
I think combining my 3 true loves in this tiny white box in front of me is pretty much as insane as my next 8 day trip but you never know right?!
Before I run off to dinner, I guess I should tell you more about these so-called loves of mine: Being a journalism major, has somehow convinced me that my writing skills are superb and I had spent the last 3 (or is it 4) years of my post-college life trying to find topics to write about. I had tried fiction, diary, erotic and now had finally arrived at travel. My second hobby which should probably be my first is traveling or should I rather say exploring. There is just some unexplained feeling I get from being somewhere for the first time, discovering a sign that has been there for decades, driving down a road with abandoned houses on the side. That feeling of stepping out of a car where you can hear Brittney Spears, Guns N Roses and Lady Gaga playing and having your foot hit the ground which is surrounded by silence is what I live for when I am not snapping pictures, which brings me to the last of this trilogy and that's photography.
Ok, gotta go, my first reader awaits outside with ideas for dinner while I prepare to stare into her puzzeled face as she reads this.

NYC in 72 hours

Hey! Long time no... read?!
If you are anything like me and have either traveled to other countries or went on an organized trip, or lived somewhere else or just know people in other places, every now and then (for those of you who have not heard yet Now and Then is now available on Netflix which if you have once been a tween girl, is literally the top 3 best news you can ever receive) you might have some out of town visitors, I know I have!! Ever since I was in my teens someone whether it be a relative, a friend, friends with their new spouse or an ex-bf of mine at some point all have spent a weekend (or longer) in NYC while I frantically looked for cool things to do. I usually stick to a the same itinerary every single time but eventually it gets old and I have to update the weekend plans. So to make your life easier here goes 4 days in NY exploring parts of Brooklyn, Williamsburg and Manhattan.
My friend was in NY for the first time (I know! It's NY! I could not believe there a…

I went to 3 wine fests so you don't have to

Hi there! Me again. No I am not about to write about another travel adventure but I am here to tell you about a different kind of adventure. I don’t believe that adventure only awaits when you leave the Town, City or State, I strongly believe you can adventure everywhere. Therefore I’ve decided that now and again I’ll let you know about things I do in and around NYC. This blog is not only about far away destinations but also about every day experiences easily available to each and every one.  In January of 2019 I have decided that I am going to be a healthy adult and took part in dry January. For those of you unfamiliar with concept - don't try this at home. HA! Basically it's a sad & cold winter month when one gives up alcohol. As any healthy adult who just gave up drinking for at least 30 days would do, I immediately found and bought tickets to a wine fest. The good news is it was months away so plenty of time to give my liver a chance to regenerate itself after all the b…

Exploring the South: Charleston, SC

Happy almost August! So this is a very exciting blog entry for me and I hope for you too! For one, it was a trip I took back in March with LB who has now been gone almost 60 days & I miss her dearly but in the last 3 hours over 137 texts we have made plans for another 4-5 trips next year so not everything is awful (Hang around to find out if any of them will actually take place). Second, this was the beginning of my "blogging/instagram/I like to travel/take photos and write" so I am very excited to share the details of this trip with you. I had also previously written this as an itinerary so I think to mix things up, I will leave it as such and just insert my commentary every now and then... Here it goes:
Arrive in CHS (I love Jetblue, what's your airline of choice? We arrived at 8:43 am because who does not love 7 am flights?) Upon arrival we headed to Holiday Inn Charleston-Riverview. We were there during renovation but honestly it did not bother us much, we had a …
