USA2 by Joshua Works

America, circumnarrated. In the summer of 2003, I hit the road and spent 75 days traveling all across the USA (and a few detours into Canada) and kept a well-documented journal of the experience. This travelogue is the result of that ultimate roadtrip.

Ramblings by Joshua Works

A personal diary, of a sort. My original online journal, I started Ramblings in 2002. Here I write about my personal & family life, milestones in the life of my baby boy Jack, and other things notable to family & friends.

On Austin Cuisine

We’ve been eating sooooo good here in Austin.

On Sunday, for lunch, we ate at a little South American restaurant, Dona Emilias, just across the street from our hotel, where they were serving a Sunday brunch. Amazing. Best meal ever. Stewed pulled pork. Some crazy rice thing. Lox. Sausages ...

On Four Seasons

Besides the expected niceties of the Four Seasons Hotel, like superior customer service, luxurious bathrobes & linens, and a classic, cozy decor, there are a few things I never expected. First of all, they clean our room twice each day: once in the morning to do the standard room-reset, but also ...
