New Blog Post on +Awesome Mitten: "Downtown Grand Rapids: A Personal Architecture Tour." #PureMichigan   #GrandRapids   #mittenlove   #architecture  
When roaming around a city or town, an easy way to get a feel for its past and what it is all about today is to walk around and observe all the architecture. Michigan’s second largest city is no exception, please join me as I recount my recent self-guided architectural tour through downtown Grand

My new post on +The Awesome Mitten: "A Wintry Stroll Around Downtown Kalamazoo." #PureMichigan   #mittenlove   #Kalamazoo   #KZoo

Planned travel became unplanned, which can lead to lots of unexpected #travel fun!

Story
Tagline
The Adventures of elATLboy. Lover of travel, the ATL, road trips, city skylines, COFFEE & shorelines. I'm also a web developer. It's #ElCafeDe2013 time!
Introduction
The Adventures of the elATLboy - http://www.elatlboy.com

I’m Aaron, elATLboy or “The Hispanic Atlanta Boy”. I playfully talk about my time in Atlanta, Detroit, New Zealand and beyond.

Mornings, evenings, weekends, vacation days, doing the day job remotely, I find the time to enjoy what I am truly passionate about, traveling.  I am a web developer and social media marketer by day.

Road trips, city skylines, non-chain coffee shops, lighthouses and shorelines are featured. Geography, the weather, travel signs, geekiness, local food  and COFFEE all have their place as well when “out on the open road”!

It's #ElCafeDe2013 time!
