There's always such a huge crowd taking pictures of the bull (people take turns standing next to it), but with a little patience, I got a shot that looks like the bull is ready to charge the crowd!
On our second morning in New York, Heinrich and I wearily pulled our boots onto our swollen feet. The soles of my feet were already cased in moleskin (which, by the way, was my single best purchase during our trip, hands down), and after little deliberation, Heinrich switched into his sneakers. I was on a mission …
You know your city is struggling when a dismembered statue hand sits in the middle of the park for years.
In New York you can forget, Forget how to sit still Heinrich and I stumbled out of the Russian Tea Room, woozy from our sensory overload. Our taste buds tingled as our eyes adjusted to the harsh outdoor light. And then, we walked some more. We walked from the south edge of Central Park to …

Par for the course, Heinrich and I were up at 4 a.m. to get a quick workout in the hotel gym before breakfast (also par for the course: this was the only time during our entire trip that Heinrich worked out). We had been up late the night before, having been too paralyzed by the …
When Fiorello wants an airport, you build him an airport!
After a break to divulge some of my travel tips (and indulge in my Australian obsession!), I decided it’s time to get back to my narrative roots. And who doesn’t love reliving travel memories? Oh, you look so beautiful tonight, In the city of blinding lights. I’m always the travel agent and tour guide whenever …
So, we’ve finally come to the end of my list of underrated places! Because of all the pictures of each place, I chose to split them up, and I’m down to my final recommended underrated place: Alice Springs. 10. Alice Springs I didn’t have the greatest expectations when I came to Alice Springs. Like most …
My ninth underrated place in Australia is a little-known city in South Australia. It supposedly has the most millionaires per capita in the country (owing to its thriving aquaculture), but it has so much to offer the casual visitor! 9. Port Lincoln I’ve never been to an airport as small as the one at Port …
I’m going to switch gears here a little bit and move on to amazing, underrated cities in Australia. Everyone visits at least one of the big cities while Down Under, but there are quite a few little gems that shouldn’t be overlooked! 7. Port Hedland I was so enamoured in this city that I dedicated …
While we’re on the topic of stunning outdoorsy destinations, I have another one on my list of underrated places in Australia: the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. 6. Blue Mountains Just a stone’s throw from Sydney are the stunning Blue Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Area. [Side note: after all the travelling I’ve done, …
So finally, a post that’s not about animals! Although it’s not as cute and furry, Kings Canyon is magnificent. There’s a resort directly at Kings Canyon if someone has a little more time, but it also just so happens to be about halfway between Alice Springs and Uluru, making it the most epic pit stop …
