A Nerd’s Guide to Travel

The reasons why people travel are endless. Some just want to get away for the weekend, others are trying to escape their past, and some are just following the footsteps of their favorite movies/books/television shows. I try to not let it influence every trip, but I’ve definitely visited a few select locations just because of my nerdier sensibilities. Read More

How to Survive a Family Vacation When You’re the Designated Tour Guide

In every family vacation there are three types of individuals:

1. The Planners

2. The Followers

3. The Kids

Book Review: “Leia: Princess of Alderaan”

Even though she’s no longer physically with us, Carrie Fisher is one of my heroes. It’s her portrayal and stewardship for Leia Organa that has kept me in love with the world’s beloved Space Princess since the first time I watched A New Hope as a wee female nerd. There’s nothing I don’t love about Leia. She’s stubborn, witty, brilliant under pressure, and one of my favorite female characters ever written.

Leia: Princess of Alderaan takes everything I love about Leia and expands on it. Read More

The Best and Worst Castles I’ve Visited in Ireland

There are hundreds of castles in Ireland. Not every one is amazing–it’s just not plausible. Some castles are more tourist traps than anything else, while others are so new looking that they don’t hold any of that haunting quality that commands crowds to their iron-wrought doors. Read More
