Jail Tales

I am unquestionably fortunate that my jail tales don’t include any of my own incarceration.  I am USAmerican and a white female. Thanks to the former I’m far more likely to have done time in jail or prison than most people in my circle. Thanks to the latter, I am not. My jail tales start Read More

Balkan Weed 2

The second in my series of posts on Balkan weed… and rakija. Bulgaria I am told that I am not trying the best weed in Bulgaria, yet still I am sure that the best weed in Bulgaria is on the same spectrum as what I do try.  It isn’t good.  It’s clean enough, at least, Read More

A week before my flight from Bucharest to Sofia on Qatar Airways, Bulgaria reclassifies Romania as a red country with regards to Covid, meaning that I will not be allowed entry.

Berlin Blind Date

My Berlin blind date takes place just after my second visit to Malta, which isn’t worth writing about. Normally I would not go to Berlin just for a blind date, but in this case it is Sepehr who has, since we met, consistently suggested the idea to both me and his best friend.  I figure Read More

Bourbon, Scotch, and Tasmanian Whisky: At the end of the world just before the end of the world

Here are some thoughts on Tasmanian Whisky, Scotch, and Bourbon… but not in that order. Bourbon In the Beginning, there is Bourbon. My friends offer to take me on the Bourbon Trail when I am passing through Kentucky for the first time. Though I have never really been a fan of whiskey and know nothing Read More

Catalonian Cannabis – Barcelona Cannabis Social Clubs

I’m full of anticipation writing this. I’m about to spend a month in Barcelona, and it is oh so much more complicated this third visit. This visit which won’t involve any Barcelona Cannabis Social Clubs. They won’t be a part of this visit, for so many reasons. Socializing may be at a minimum. Whereas my Read More
