There’s an island in the middle of the Ohio River called Blennerhassett Island. The Blennerhassett family used to live in a mansion there, and now visitors can tour the old buildings and walk around the island. Today’s weather was predicted to be beautiful, so my friend Zach and I hopped on the boat that takes you to the island!
I went on my first Instawalk today. An Instawalk is when you walk a neighborhood with the purpose of taking some good shots to Instagram. Armed with my iPhone and the company of my sister and brother in law, I think I made out with a few good shots. Who knew my small, Ohio hometown could look interesting?!
I love exploring. I love exploring other countries, but I can have just as much fun exploring a city that’s just a few hours away. I got to go visit my dear Taiwanese friend in Columbus, Ohio, which is just a few short hours away, this past weekend. Sometimes we see cities we’ve been to before as boring and mundane, but they can also be bursting with inviting places to visit and exotic food to eat. For example, while in Columbus, I ate authentic Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese food. We went to a few cultural events, did some shopping, and just wandered around. I had a great time, and it quenched my thirst for adventure. For now. :]
