I know readers don’t visit this site to learn about trends in travel blogging or “inside baseball” information about my career as a journalist and travel writer. And I won’t start today. But as I stand here in a beer garden in the awesome Tennessee Brewery property in Downtown Memphis, I can’t help but reflect on what I see a lot on other travel blogs: the desire to escape something. If you’re like me, you have roots in a particular place, probably with family obligations and, while you enjoy traveling, you also enjoy where you live. Sometimes, travel at home can be enough. Why do we have to escape something?
