Prohibitionist believe drinking beer leads to lewd and immoral behavior. Casey O’ Leary demonstrates drinking beer in a responsible sustainable manner, betters the community and results in delicious eggs.
With a reputation for fresh flavors, Maxine’s Glacier City Bistro fills with locals every Wednesday Night for open mic tunes. Traveler Brandon Follett checks out the scene and indulges in two of his favorite pastimes — eating and singing.
Girdwood, Alaska has some of the best day hiking in all of Alaska. Before heading back to the hostel, I recommend taking a walk through the Alyeska Resort. Half the fun of being a budget traveler is splurging at restaurants like Sakura & Sushi Bar.
Anchorage Daily News offers a great written description of the trail here.
When traveling on a budget and can’t afford a professional guide I recommend a goat. Traveler Brandon follows a friendly goat through the wilds of New Mexico.
The dairy goats roam freely on a unique configuration of private and public land, (like the checkerboard pattern that Tony Hillerman writes about in his books about the Four Corners). The goats roam and graze and return home in the evening. Coonridge Organic Cheese’s delightful taste comes from the type of plants the goats graze on in the high New Mexico desert.
This book is well worth the money. Rich with well-worded descriptions and beautiful photos, this zine will satisfy the reader who has either travel-curiosity or no idea what to make for dinner (which, of course, would be omelettes).”
