Three Months?!

OMG has it really been that long since I had anything to say on here?! Shame on me!

You'll be pleased to know that I actually am writing up three entries to go into the Ohio files- this time I traveled to a city I truly had never been to before: Columbus, the capital. Two food spots and as always, a historic building are my entries. So thank you for bearing with me and stay tuned!

I'm (Sorta) Back!

Oh readers! How I have neglected thee. Please accept my apologies.

I have had a bit of a whirlwind in my personal life, and my travel plans have been affected by it. But, New Year, new start, so I am working past the things that happened and focused back again on my 50 state challenge (and other aspects of my life that you don't come here to read about :) )

Well, Georgia in January got nixed. And the conference in Dayton was moved to Columbus, Ohio (which I'm actually a bit more excited about). Still unsure about New Orleans, and whereas I HAD a trip that would have encompassed Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota planned out, those whirlwind personal things happened, so now I will have to either find new travel-mates or cancel the trip altogether. Las Vegas, Nevada, however, is still very much so happening.

Sorry there isn't much else to say at the moment. I hope everyone is safe, blessed, and happy. And for my Russian readers, I hope you are excited about the Sochi Olympics!

Tips and Advice Solicitation

Hello readers! I am still on non-travel mode as I get through the holiday season, but I am already planning and working towards my trips for 2014-- and my calendar is quickly filling up!

I wanted to try something different though. I wanted to hear what YOU would suggest as great things to see or do in the states I will be traveling to. So far (barring any major catastrophe), I am going to:

Atlanta, Georgia in January 2014
Dayton, Ohio in April 2014 (though it's for a conference, so I'm not sure how much free time I will have)
Las Vegas, Nevada in May 2014
Charlotte, North Carolina in July 2014

I'm also seriously trying to fit in South Dakota in August 2014 and New Orleans, Louisiana at any point during the year.

So- what should I do? Where should I visit? Any advice or things to watch out for? Keep in mind that although I am planning on relinquishing my crown soon (I am taking driving lessons!) I am still the Queen of Public Transportation, so I most likely will not be able to go way out into the boonies without a little help. (Before you say anything, South Dakota is thus far looking like a trip with people who do indeed drive lol).

Tell me on my Facebook wall, tweet me, or simply comment below!

Thanks guys, and I'll see you on the next adventure!
