I am a displaced Texan voluntarily stuck in New York City. I love traveling, reading, photography, beaches, food, wine, beer, dessert (yes–it gets it’s own category!), saving the world, movies, and my darling pupcicle…but never in that order.
You’re probably wondering why I’m here. I love to travel. And write. And when I think about it, my best experiences while traveling usually revolve around two things: funny mishaps and eating & drinking. Because, well, I am a die-hard foodie who, along with food, loves coffee, wine, and beer. Plus, I tend to collect funny travel stories like most collect books or stamps or junk mail. If I am forced to pick my favorite type of food, it would probably be Italian and TexMex, followed very closely by…well…anything. If it’s good, it’s my favorite. I feel the same about wine, coffee, and beer. I have worked with all three, which only served to increase my passion, my knowledge, and my need to have it.
You should also know (if you haven’t guessed by my address) I am a Texan. If you are or know any, you’ll know that you don’t actually have to remember that fact because we will–at any and every given moment–remind you. 🙂 I grew up in a small town, Fredericksburg, smack dab in the middle of the state. I started traveling when I was 18, got bit by the traveling bug and have no intentions of stopping. Ever. Thus far, I have lived in three countries on three continents and counting.
Most importantly, I have a dog: The Darling Princess Adelaide, aka Addy, or as she is commonly known on the interwebs, the pupcicle. Quite honestly, she is the reason I come home. I mean, c’mon–look at that face!
I live by the following mottos:
- I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.
- Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible”
- I’ll try anything once because in the end we only regret the chances not taken.
- Don’t take life too seriously, you’re not getting out alive.
I’m Shez…and these are my stories.
