We visited the town of Hallstatt, Austria.
It's cute.
How cute?
China made its own copy of the town.

 Rand has been asking me to tell this story for a year. I finally decided to. I am immensely proud of the result. #travel   #longreads  +Rand Fishkin

That miserable and storied month of February now over, I am acutely aware of how anxious and unhappy I was throughout. This didn't occur to me while it was happening; only after the trapeze artist is safely on the ground again do you realize you were holding your breath the entire time.

Sometimes your friend goes to pee and finds out he was being watched the entire time by a female tortoise. 

I mean, it doesn't happen OFTEN, but sometimes it does.

When you have a wonderful trip, it is incredibly hard to remember one distinct day, because they all sort of run together in a crazy, cake-fueled haze. At the end of it, you are five pounds heavier and you have on a bathing suit bottom instead of underwear because you wore your last clean pair ...

From the Archives: a rambling, cuss-filled rant on why Bavarian food is the best goddamn thing on the planet. 

"... soak up the delicious pork juice that has filled the bottom of your plate. It is nectar of the gods. Drink it, and you will LIVE FOREVER."
Bavarian food doesn't f#ck around. Bavarian food is the guy at the gym in the tiny muscle tee who's lifting weights so heavy, the veins in his neck and head (and other parts of the body that you didn't even know HAD veins) start to pop out. Bavaria's cuisine is a monster truck.

Geese try to kill my husband. It's amusing, except for the terror of it all.
I feel like most normal people are irrationally scared of at least one harmless animal. I speak not of rational fears, mind you. I think it's totally reasonable to fear certain animals, like baboons or moths, both of which are fucking terrifying. My fear of them makes total sense; ...

We eat in a pitch black restaurant in London. Turns out there's more to a meal than meets the eye. (Sorry.)

“I can't figure out what this is.” “It's … slimy.” “I can't cut anything.” “Cut? I've just been using my hands.” “Speaking of hands, Geraldine, keep yours to yourself.” “GOD DAMN IT, JON. Lisa, I swear, I'm not touching him.” —————. I have heard that if you take one sense away, the others rush ...

You said you wanted to see the desert. I can't remember where you got the idea, but once you had it, that was it. It's happened plenty of times before – you become singularly focused, you get a particular look on your face, and the only thing left to do is follow you.

We visit #Capri. We do not enjoy it. #Italy #travel #travelblog  

http://bit.ly/1Mqn1U1
I know I was supposed to go Capri and love it. That just what people do – they paddle through the Blue Grotto and eat pizza at a cafe and fall in love with the place. But none of that happened during our visit. The grotto was closed on account of weather, and seemingly every cafe and restaurant ...

I peed in the most wonderful bathroom. And now all other potties pale in comparison.

Later, when we talked about that dinner, we spoke with reverence of many things. The sky. The lanterns. The food. But none of these could hold a candle to the bathroom. We could not stop praising that tremendous toilet. That remarkable restroom. That lavish lavatory. That wondrous … wiz palace?

"Because he's being a total dick about my results, here's a photo of my brother as a really fat baby."

What happens when you do 23andMe testing with your big brother.

Before I begin this post, I feel it pertinent to provide a little background on my relationship with my brother. This is what happened after he shared an article I wrote on Facebook: This was a rare moment of non-vitriol. Most of the time, I just tell him that I hate him and that he needs to get ...

The hubby swears this is the most important thing I've ever told him.

“I wonder why some croissants are straight and others are curved.” “It has to do with butter content.” “Wait, what?” “The ones that are straight are made from butter. If they're curved, they're made from other fats, like margarine or whatever.” “WAIT, WHAT?” “Yeah. In France, it's the law.
