Shane got some new camera equipment and wanted to test it out. Who were we to say no?

On days like this, when I’m feeling particularly travel-itchy, Kayak’s Explore feature is so dangerous. I had been thinking about Prague/Berlin for next year’s solo trip (I’m now so in love with traveling alone that I want to make it a point to do it every year) but now I’m seeing really low fares for Istanbul in April/May (~$650!). Lots of cheap listings on AirBnb, too - anyone have thoughts on Turkey for a woman traveling alone?
Of course, that’s the relatively pragmatic side of the travel-itch talking. The other part is going “YOU CAN GO TO HONG KONG FOR $570! OR BANGKOK FOR $760! JUST QUIT YOUR JOB AND GO LIVE IN SOUTH EAST ASIA. DO IT. DOOOOOOO IT.”
So, you know, there’s that option too. What do, Tumblr?
My dad’s having his basement redone, so in the process of clearing out boxes and papers, he’s been on something of a journey of rediscovery. This afternoon, we went through a bunch of my grandparents’ old things, including my grandmother’s jewelry and my grandfather’s tie clips and cufflinks.
Above, some choice finds. I had no idea I’d feel so strongly about my grandfather’s dog tags. Also, I’m turning those cufflinks into earrings, stat.
Everyone’s out and about with their moms today - it’s making me crazy homesick! Here’s me with mom last year up at the Cloisters. Hug your mama today, kids!
