While I love the PNW, I also like to venture beyond it (thus, the name of this website!)

This is the “travel blog” page for all things travel on this website. I recently had to re-do part of this website for technical reasons to do with the events component of this website, and I’m working to get individual pages up for the major sections: PNW, Travel, Travel Destinations, “travel-inspired” recipes, and as well as other sections.

While I have tons more to write about the travel destinations I’ve visited, I’m working on some posts about travel tips as well. We’re getting there…

Six Hand-Drawn Travel Books That Just Might Make You Want to Put Down the Camera and Pick Up a Pencil

If you’re like me, sometimes when you travel you’re tempted to spend part of your trip behind the lens of a camera or snapping photos on your phone to share later. But putting down the gadgets and picking up a pencil can help us to slow down and have a more “mindful” journey. Here are six hand-drawn books I’ve recently enjoyed about travel or places that just might inspire me to put down the camera (only for a bit) and pick up a pencil.

Things to Do and See at York Minster Cathedral

I usually hate the words “simply must,” in a blog post. But if you go to York you simply must visit York Minster Cathedral. Here are some things to do and see at this wonderful medieval gem that is my personal favorite of the cathedrals I’ve had an opportunity to visit.

Snickelways and Walls: Walking York’s Passages

Snickelways and Walls: Walking York’s Passages

When I was growing up I used to play in Alleyways — but York has Snickelways, which are more than just alleys. Snickelways are narrow passages between buildings that locals use to take shortcutes to navigate the city faster. And York’s still-standing walls are, perhaps, its largest Snickelway.

Visiting the Paris Catacombs: A Labyrinth of Death Beneath the City of Light

Are the Paris Catacombs worth visiting? It depends on what you like. If you’re not somebody who enjoys visiting cemeteries when you travel, it might not be the place for you. But there aren’t too many other places quite like it and it has an interesting history.

Here’s a bit of the history of the Paris Catacombs, a few interesting facts and some tips for before you go and how to get there.

Here’s more about the catacombs, with some tips for visiting.

Amidst Old Tombstones at Kirkmichael Trust Cemetery

Amidst Old Tombstones at Kirkmichael Trust Cemetery

The Kirkmichael Trust Cemetery in the Scottish highlands has done some serious restoration work, bringing old medieval tombstones into a restored church building for preservation and display. The stones outside, as well as the small mausoleum, are also worth a visit if you like old cemeteries — its just a bit off the main itinerary for your North Coast 500 road trip.
