Mexican Food Update: The Piggery, La Fiesta Brava, Viva Taqueria

The long and arduous search for chorizo in Ithaca is over. They make their own at The Piggery and it’s pretty damn good. It’s just artisanal, expensive stuff, not the cheapo, authentico stuff you get in California. But it’s satisfying our cravings. We miss chorizo …

How to travel … forever.

We want to keep traveling, that’s no secret. We’re not itching to return to commutes and commitments. We want to see more of the world, man. There’s so much more to see! So, how to do it? We don’t really know … yet. But we …

The 6 things that are keeping me inspired right now

It’s hard to stay inspired. I’m working on a book about our trip (it’s going to be more of a how-to guide and less of a memoir) but I promised myself I wouldn’t give in to the old cliche and complain about how hard it …
