    Innisfree Garden

    There are a lot of little hidden gems in the Hudson Valley, and since the move it has been my pleasure and purpose to snuff them out. I’ve found beautiful restaurants, countless farms, museums and so much more. Of everything I’ve done so far, I would say one of the most special places is Innisfree Garden. Snuggled into Millbrook, a tiny city with a population of 1,418, lives a spectacular garden hidden away down a windy road nestled with grand trees and rolling hills. It’s a place you can get lost, a place you can roam free, and a place that can you remind you of the beauty in this…

    Peach Picking at Fishkill Farms

    Bucket List item # 1281 – fruit picking @ Fishkill Farms Fishkill, New York Once upon a time, on a summer day that was uncomfortably hot, Dave and I braved Fishkill Farms and tried to take in the splendor without complaining. Truly, we did have a wonderful time, despite our inability to get a respite from the sweltering heatwave. However, if I could have a do over (and I will because I’ll literally be there this weekend) I would say fuck peach picking and wait for fall and make a b line for the apples and pumpkins. I mean, the peaches are literally some of the best I’ve ever had,…

    New York Renaissance Faire

    Bucket List item #2998 – New York Renaissance Fair Tuxedo, New York What can I say? I love a good renaissance fair. I’m a firm believer that you can’t truly have a bad day at the ren fair. I mean, bad things can happen there just like anywhere else in the world, but you’re surrounded by so much good and joy that if you just breathe it in you’ll find happiness. I have a nasty habit of comparing renaissance festivals to the one in Larkspur, Colorado, which I worked at growing up and spent most of my life visiting every summer. Others can’t compare, but I think that’s more a…

    Coober Pedy

    In case you haven’t heard of Coober Pedy, it’s almost like Australian folklore. I’d heard stories, but it was hard to believe there was really a city where it got so hot that people chose to live underground. Where mining for opals wasn’t a job, but a way of life. A place where the locals were so used to flies that they don’t blink when they mosey across their eyeballs. The truth is, I literally saw a man not flinch or move a muscle while flies danced on his nose. The truth is that all of these things are the truth. We rolled into Coober Pedy on a fairly hot…

    The Beauty of Uluru

    Bucket list check #661 – Ayers Rock Yulara, Australia   My beloved Uluru, aka Ayers Rock. Uluru is one of those huge bucket list checks you look forward to for a lifetime. It’s like seeing the Eiffel Tower or Niagara Falls. It’s a big check and it’s a damn big rock. Before I went, I had to understand one thing: what makes this a rock and not a mountain? Well, a rock is one solid piece while mountains are made of rocks. Uluru is the largest rock monolith in the world! So, what else makes this rock so cool aside from being, well, really fucking big? Uluru is a UNESCO…
