After growing up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and living in Cleveland, Ohio for 7 years, back in the early 2000’s, I visited Atlanta when I was searching for my next home. Atlanta made the short list because it was a warm-weather city and a cosmopolitan hub with opportunities for techies like me. I ended up choosing Austin instead, and I’ve been living there for about ten years, but these past two Octobers, the Atlanta Visitors Bureau invited me to their annual SITSum conference, so that I could deeply explore the city and post about it. These experiences made me realize that Atlanta is a confluence of all the things I love about all the cities I’ve lived.
In addition to playing ambient keyboards on Saturday with Robin Bruce for a yoga workshop, I'll be presenting a workshop on world travel at the "Head for the Hills" music festival this Friday at 12:15pm at the workshop dome!
Russell Eric Dobda, author of How to Spin the World Around: With Cheap Travel, Technology and Mindfulness shares a methodology and philosophy to help you go deeper for cheaper as you travel the world. If you've always wanted to travel, but thought you couldn't afford it or didn't know where to start, this workshop will show you how. With the 21st Century tools of smartphones and social networks along with the ancient wisdom of a mindfulness practice, you can have a much richer travel experience than ever before for less money than ever before.

This morning, I was on local radio in Austin, promoting my new book, How to Spin the World Around. I spoke with Dudley, Bob, and Matt about mindful travel, getting out of your comfort zone, and getting punched in the face by a Malaysian. You can find the interview below, or click here if it doesn't show up.
One of the best ways to experience the culture of a place is through its food. Just hit the street stalls to get a taste of time-honored traditions and a slice of local life. With culinary travel exploding in 2015, Holiday Lettings helps me serve up street food ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner around the world.
