Road Trip From El Paso to Austin – US Travel Diary 7

Leaving our little desert haven at the crack of dawn we were well rested as we prepared for a hardcore day on the road. Even after doing a lot of Googling there were no fun stops to be found on this 11 hour drive. Though not the most exciting road, the hours past quickly with the […]

Intelligentsia Coffee Venice Beach

Yet another rainy day in Venice meant a beach day was out of the question, but after a serious lack of wifi I was happy to reacquaint myself with my laptop and get back online. Los Angeles is full of cool coffee shops but one which kept on coming  up was Intelligentsia, a small chain starting […]
