This morning I drove one of my friends to her internship at the Columbus zoo. Ohio is full of long, windy roads and the trip to the zoo was no exception. Sometimes it’s just nice to drive. Relax. Hit the open road. Okay, so the Columbus Zoo isn’t quite far enough from me to use … Continue reading

A Mushroom House in the Woods: A New York Fairytale
The final stop on our fabulous road trip was “The Mushroom House.” Where I said “stopped” I probably should have said that my Dad and I “trespassed.” This is private property, as in some-lucky-shmuck lives here.

This was stop 3 on our fabulous road trip back to central … Continue reading

This stop was the kick-off to our adventure and it also marks the beginning of “Road Trip Week” on The Penniless Traveler! Before our trip, I visited one of … Continue reading

1. A Chihuly Take On Collecting Things on Rosemary’s Blog This is my favorite post of the week. A really unique sight. Anything that mixes art, travel, and my hoarder-like obsession with collections is good in my book. And she’s got the pictures to back it up. 2.
