Border Jumping: Kansas & Missouri

$348.65 + 71,906 Points= Trip For 3: Air, Hotel & Car Rental

For one reason or another I’ve long enjoyed stopping for a photo at border crossings, especially those with some sort of sign or marker.

The first time I could think of doing this was when we walked across the border from South Africa to Namibia. I also had some fun jumping by the border of Kosovo and Albania during our trip last summer to the Balkans.

During our most recent trip to the Mid-West, we found a border marker at an unlikely place, on the middle of a bridge! Continue reading Border Jumping: Kansas & Missouri

Our Mid-West Mini Roadtrip In A Nutshell

Earlier in the summer, Kim, Lucas and I spent five days checking out a part of the U.S. that was pretty much new to us during our Mid-West Mini Roadtrip.

While there weren’t really any amazing sites and things to visit, it was still a fun trip for a relatively low cost. It actually ended up being a great trip for Lucas due to the amount of things that we visited which appealed to him.

A highlight for me was getting to finally try out some of Kansas City’s famous barbecue! Continue reading Our Mid-West Mini Roadtrip In A Nutshell

The site isn’t much to talk about, it’s a statue of a very famous chef- Chef Boyardee!

When I first heard about the Chef Boyardee statue, I thought of our visit last year to Milwaukee where we had a lot of fun visiting the Bronze Fonz. (If you click the link make sure to scroll down the page to find out about it.) Continue reading An Encounter With A Top Chef

A Bridge Which Crosses Borders

Recently we went on a Mid-West Mini Road Trip in which we visited sites in 4 states in about 6 days. (A trip recap should be coming soon.)

While driving through Iowa on the way to Nebraska I was a bit disappointed.

The Welcome to Nebraska sign was on the middle of a busy highway. There would be no pulling over to take some photos which was definitely annoying.
