The Best Advice on How to Travel More
Huffington Post - about 1 year
One of the reasons I started my travel site was to show that it IS possible to travel more, even when you have a full-time job. It's not always easy, but if you're committed to traveling, you will. Though I've shared my own tips on how to get started, I also wanted to collect advice from some of the most well-traveled people I know. These Globe Getters are road warriors who have learned how to travel, when to travel and why travel is one of the most valuable things we can do. So, I'm going to step back and let my fellow travelers do the talking. Here's their best advice on how to travel more: SAVE! "Traveling is a life-long endeavor. Save up! Thirty years from now, you won't remember that fancy handbag you bought. Spend wisely and don't hoard too many material things. I once made a pair of flip flops from a plastic bag and a rubber band to get my way out of a monsoon in Malaysia. This has proven more valuable to me than any pair of shoes in my entire lifetime. Nothing is impo ...

Tips and Tricks for the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Are you new to the NYC Marathon? Are you new to NYC? Then this post is for you! As a seven-time race veteran and New York City local for 20 years, I have a bit of an insider's view of the NYC Marathon. Here's what you need to know: The Expo If you can get there on Thursday or early Friday, do it! It gets busy on Saturday and the last thing you want to do the day before a 26.2 race is to stand in line for hours! The Expo is at the Javits Center and is about as far west as you can get (34th Street and 11th Ave.) and there is virtually nothing around it. The MTA just opened an extension to the 7 train which is less than a block from the Javits. Photo courtesy of BrooklynActiveMama.com If you time your Expo trip right, you'll get to meet some of the professionals who are running the race. Meb, William, Mary and Tatyana all do meet and greets. And then at the booths, folks like Matt Long and Bart Yasso are around pressing the flesh, if you're a running geek like me (and c ...

A Smart Traveler's Advice on Social Media
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Matt Long's approach to travel is a little unusual. On his blog, LandLopers.com, he writes about the most comfortable way to get there, and not necessarily the cheapest. "I call it luxury adventure travel," he says. "It's amazing experiences coupled with comfortable surroundings." Long is also like the rest of us -- he has a significant other, three dogs and a house in the suburbs. Last year, he left his job as a DC lobbyist to pursue travel blogging full-time and now consults with several companies on social media and blogging. What makes him the world's smartest traveler? Other than that he has one of the most influential travel blogs? It's his level-headed approach to travel budgeting. "Everyone always asks me how to get the best deals," he says, "but the answer is right in front of them. Through the noise of social media those bargains can sometimes be missed, but they're there if you know where to look." It's as easy as following your favorite airline, hotel or cruise line on Tw ...

Insanely Detailed Sand Castle Pops Up In The Middle Of NYC
Huffington Post - over 3 years
If you can't go to the beach, bring the beach to you. That's the logic that guided artist Matt Long in his recent pop-up art installation in New York City. The artist and host of Sand Masters on the Travel Channel gave New Yorkers a taste of surf life when he sculpted an insanely detailed sand castle right in the middle of the bustling urban jungle. Mayor Bloomberg himself paid a visit to the might feat of sandy architecture, which was commissioned by Water Street POPS! to draw attention to post-Sandy recovery. If you want to see the ephemeral work in person, head to Water Street, between Whitehall and Broad Streets in New York. Check out some other incredible artworks using sand as their medium below.

Lelia Nebeker: Dear ABC: Just Stop Trying to Air Shows on Thursdays at 8 (It's Getting Embarrassing)
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Last week, ABC canceled the midseason conspiracy drama Zero Hour after airing just three episodes. In case you missed it -- either because you were taking a really long nap, or maybe you just blinked -- Zero Hour was about an editor of a paranormal-themed magazine (Anthony Edwards) whose wife goes missing, and in his quest to find her, he discovers that he's part of a larger conspiracy that threatens the world as we know it. With its cataclysmic prophecies and borderline-supernatural mythology, Zero Hour reminded me of one of its time slot predecessors: FlashForward. Remember that show? It was the one where the entire world blacked out at the same time and saw flashes of their futures. Sounds promising, right? It was. Like Zero Hour, FlashForward couldn't find its footing in the Thursday 8 p.m. time slot, and it didn't help that its run was interrupted by the 2010 Winter Olympics. FlashForward was among the first shows to fall victim to ABC's Thursday night curse. Since then, ...

Private Practice Season 6 Casts Alfre Woodard and Matt Long
Boom Tron - over 4 years
Private Practice has a busy season ahead of it, what with the question of whom Addison (Kate Walsh) is going to choose to be with still up in thee air – will it be Sam (Taye Diggs) or Jake (Benjamin Bratt)? Will she say yes to Sam’s proposal, or is Jake the man for her? Season 6 will hopefully give us some kind of answer in its Sept. 25 premiere, even if it happens she chooses neither of them. Personally, I’m leaning toward thinking she chooses neither; based purely on the fact Kate Walsh is leaving Private Practice this season after 13 episodes. Still, she might choose one of them, and some casting announcements may shed some light on the ultimate direction Addison will choose. According to TVLine, Sam’s mother has been cast, with four-time Emmy Award winner Alfre Woodard taking on the part. She’ll make her appearance in a November episode, suggesting she might be around for Sam’s engagement. To be honest, I just don’t buy that. Unless Sam and Addison are getting married within ...

'Sleepwalk With Me' review: dream life
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
'Sleepwalk With Me' review: dream life [...] with a fitting, noodly logic, his nocturnal peregrinations became a segment on "This American Life," a one-man show off-Broadway, a book, an album - and, finally, a movie. [...] the film treads lightly on many thorny topics, including the pressure to marry, the mystery of sleep disorders and the single-minded, near-delusional ambition of a comedian who'll drive long miles in a beat-up Volvo to score some laughs - or possibly none. Much of the story involves Matt's long-suffering girlfriend, Abby (Lauren Ambrose), who's inclined to tie the knot. Despite occasional glimpses of Matt's dream life, the film emphasizes more than anything the everyday, accidental nuttiness of a guy bumping around the dark in his PJs.

Touchscreen Directories Are Coming to NYC Phone Booths
Mashable - almost 5 years
New York City’s dilapidated phone booths are getting a high-tech makeover. Hundreds of phone booths will soon be outfitted with iPad-like touchscreen devices for directions and hyper-local news. New Yorkers will see 32-inch smart screens in neighborhood phone booths starting next month, as part of a Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications-sanctioned pilot program. If this public project is well-liked, more of the city’s 12,800 free-standing phones will morph into Internet-enabled data stations. Future kiosks may become Wi-Fi hotspots with email and Skype capabilities. “While any final determinations are still some time off, we’ll soon begin seeking public input about what New Yorkers would like to see the payphone of the future entail, and we view the City 24×7 pilot program as an innovative, engaging way to help inform those efforts,” said Nicholas Sbordone, DoITT director of external affairs. For now, the directories will show information about l ...
