The Passengers are at the Gates… and Their Friends are, too

The Passengers are at the Gates… and Their Friends are, too

You can now share the joys of going through airport security and not even go anywhere. The days of the hurried kiss-and-go in the loading zone that have been with us since September, 2001 are gone — at least at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT).  You now have the option to park your car and walk […]

Little Italy, Small World

Little Italy, Small World

Pittsburgh’s Little Italy is located in the neighborhood of Bloomfield, which gets its name from a note that George Washington made in his journal about the field of blooming flowers close to the settlement.

The May Marathon

If you’re like me you’ve never considered running in a marathon. I grew up with a runner in my family. I spent my elementary school years attending track meets and practices with my track coach father, the same father who more than once participated in marathons including ultra marathons (races of 50 miles or more). I […]

Dinner and Discord

Food has always been one of our favorite ways to experience a different culture or country. From Italy’s finest handmade pasta to mildly mysterious (but delicious) dishes served on our safari in Tanzania and fish tacos on the beach in Playa del Carmen, we love to savor local fare and learn why those tastes are […]
