Milktooth, Indianapolis, Indiana

Milktooth Front

My birthday was a few weeks ago, and since it was on a Sunday (and Easter Sunday at that) I wanted to take advantage of the occasion and get away for the weekend. We looked for flights that would fit the bill, and when it came time to decide between the final few cities, Michael said to pick a city that had a place I wanted to eat and so we booked.

33 Hour Birthday Weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana

Mass Ave

Back in March, we began looking for a cheap flight over my birthday weekend. We didn’t have any particular place in mind, really, we just wanted to take off and go someplace else. As my birthday fell on Easter weekend this year, the flight costs were way higher than in the past, but we still had a few options. We decided on Indianapolis, Indiana because the price was right, I had Southwest points to use, we could get around without renting a car by using Uber/Lyft, and the times worked out well (leaving early-ish Saturday, arriving late Sunday night) for an overnight trip. Plus, I’ve wanted to visit Milktooth for awhile, which you’ll hear about in a later post.

First Impressions of The Carry-On by Away

Away in Miami

My last suitcase hasn’t totally bitten the dust yet, but I’m starting to get more nervous about taking it on long trips as its zippers are starting to get wonky. I finally made the choice for a possible replacement when I read about Away’s luggage features and their 100 day guarantee. After scoring my last suitcase (sold out) on clearance …

Oxford Exchange – Tampa, FL

A few weeks ago we visited Tampa, Florida to take Michael’s sisters to Bern’s Steakhouse (you’ll hear about it another time!) as a belated Christmas gift. Before heading home the following day we decided to check out Oxford Exchange, a multi-use space near the University of Tampa that was once a stable. We’ve visited Tampa …

General Ramblings, Not Travel

But why would you do that?

That’s the phrase we heard most when we first started taking quick weekend trips. We had just returned from London and Paris (our first really big trip), and found a cheapish flight to Austin, Texas over July 4th weekend. So we booked it. And our families freaked. “Can you afford that? Is that really a smart use of your money?” Well, yes. It was a great way for us to see a new city, and the first of a series of long weekends (okay, and regular weekends) away.

Which leads us to here: nearly four years of quick jaunts and a few longer ones, and we’re embarking on another adventure, albeit a digital one.

So to start, welcome! Thanks for checking in and joining us on this endeavor. Looks like we’re all new here.
