  • Planes, Trains, and Wienermobiles: travel by land, sea, and air

    Planes, Trains, and Wienermobiles: travel by land, sea, and air

    While sifting through photos of our journeys since Midlife Road Trip first began, I was struck not only by the myriad of places we’ve traveled, but by the variety of ways we managed to get from Point A to Point B. Whether by land, sea, or air, it’s all a part of the adventure. LAND Being a show with “Road Trip” in its name, we naturally spend a lot of […]

    Snuggle up with Fifty Shades of Grey Wine

    I admit to being one few adults in the United States who hasn’t read Fifty Shades of Grey. I love to read, but lately, my attention span is about 140 characters so I spend more time reading tweets than books. But when presented with the opportunity to snuggle up with Fifty Shades of Grey Wines, I couldn’t resist. Fifty Shades of Grey Wines are the creation of E L James, the renowned author […]

  • Planning a Portable Party #VZWBuzz

    Planning a Portable Party #VZWBuzz

    Until Verizon Wireless sent me an Ultimate Ears Boom bluetooth speaker for review, I never really saw much use for owning one. Though I have an extensive collection of MP3’s on my smartphone, I would only listen using earbuds to spare other passengers from my eclectic taste in music which ranges anywhere from Aerosmith to Frank Sinatra to Willie Nelson. I have a killer stereo system at home and didn’t […]

  • Downton Abbey: Pairing Wines with Television Shows

    Downton Abbey: Pairing Wines with Television Shows

    My wife is a huge fan of the PBS series, Downton Abbey. While I’ve been in the room with her while she watched it, I’ve never really paid attention to it. Since I am usually on my laptop tweeting, or setting my fantasy football lineup, I would be hard pressed to name a single character in the show, much less expound on the plot. I never thought of pairing a […]

  • Ten Commandments of an Authentic Italian Meal

    Ten Commandments of an Authentic Italian Meal

    Anybody who follows our adventures knows that we love to eat. We believe the best way to appreciate and embrace a culture is through its cuisine. I was recently hosted on a trip to Gargano, Italy by a local tourism group called Gargano OK. Gargano is the “spur of the boot” jutting out into the Adriatic Sea. It is a popular destination among Italians but it is not nearly as […]

    Frolicking in the Foothills of the Smoky Mountains #CanAmSpyder

    I love living in Atlanta. After all, Atlanta has professional sports, big name concerts, a colorful history, bustling nightlife, world class museums, and an extraordinary food scene. I could live a full and happy life here without ever leaving the city. But, as someone with the wanderlust gene and a having access to a midlife crisis mobile, getting out of town is something I have to do – even if […]

  • Celebrating Chardonnay Day

    Celebrating Chardonnay Day

    Chardonnay is the world’s most popular white wine grape and is celebrated each year on May 23 in what is now recognized as National Chardonnay Day.  I’m not sure how National Chardonnay Day came into being, but any grape that is planted on over 400,000 acres worldwide and in more wine regions than any other grape, including Cabernet Sauvignon, certainly deserves it’s own day. It wouldn’t be right to celebrate […]
