The Innocents Abroad

I’m a big fan of Kate Thorman’s and Nora Chovanec’s show The Innocents Abroad. They travel. They eat. Then they travel and eat some more. What’s not to love?


In their latest episode, they visit San Francisco’s State Bird Provisions, which, as luck and hard work would have it, just won the 2013 James Beard Aware for Best New Restaurant. Check it out!


And happy Monday.

"**Spoilers**

I feel like an asshole for not liking this book. I'm really tired of and not interested in reading books that showcase privileged-middle-class-NYC-straight/married-white women with rich parents perspectives. I kept hoping this would turn " Read more of this review »

“What happens when we lose the things that anchor us? What if, instead of grasping at something to hold on to, we pull up our roots and walk away? Instead of trying to find the way back, we walk deeper and deeper into the woods, willing ourselves to get lost. In this place where nothing is recognizable. not the people or the language or the food, we are truly on our own. Eventually, we find ourselves unencumbered by the past or the future. Here is a fleeting glimpse of our truest self, our self in the present moment.”
Rachel Friedman, The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure

“I imagine the people whose lives are most intertwined with mine, and I realize life has gone on without me. The planet has not imploded because I, the girl who has always done what is expected of her, decided not to, just this once.”
Rachel Friedman, The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure

“At this point in my travels and in my life, I still regard changing course as a personal failing. I don't yet have the hindsight to realize that some places don't fit quite right, for whatever reason, so sometimes it's best to cash in your chips and give it a go somewhere new, even if a mere twenty-four hours before you didn't even know that place existed.”
