Postcard Press Picks: Worth It

Worth It Featured Graphic - Soba Noddles in Japanese Setup

Postcard Press Picks: Worth It Food is integral to all of our life experiences, so it’s no wonder that eating food (or watching people eat food) can give us a glimpse into a city or country’s culture. On any trip, you can look at your breakfast, lunch, or dinner and usually find something distinctive about […]

Postcard Press Picks: Dark Tourist

Postcard Press Picks: Dark Tourist Halloween is still a little ways away, but once “Dark Tourist,” the new Netflix docuseries, dropped, it piqued my interest. Many travelers seek out the beauty of different cultures when abroad, but there is also a dark side to some cultures, and without that history, they wouldn’t be what they […]

Postcard Press Picks: ‘Ugly Delicious

Postcard Press Picks Ugly Delicious From the very first seconds of the pilot episode, I could tell Ugly Delicious was a show that cares a lot about its subject matter: food. In the first episode, the show focuses on New York pizza and what it means to the Italian-Americans who own these pizzerias. Interviews with […]

Postcard Press Picks: Zero to Travel

Postcard Press Picks: Zero to Travel Mondays are pretty hard on me like they are for a lot of people. I have to wake up at six in the morning, so I can drive fifteen miles and be in the office by 8:00 am (my decision, but it’s still terrible). I find myself living vicariously […]

Postcard Press Picks Movie Club: What to Watch Before Going to London (That Isn’t Harry Potter) I love movies, and I know I’m not alone in that sentiment. When you don’t have the money to travel, movies and TV can be a wonderful gateway to seeing the world and learning a bit about it. My […]

Postcard Press Picks: Many People Many Places One of the things that fuels our wanderlust is a desire to learn about others and how they live day to day. It’s fun to discover how similar or different we are, even if it’s just learning how different cultures say hello or goodbye. That curiosity is one […]

Postcard Press Picks: Duolingo

Postcard Press Picks: Duolingo Outside of the United States, it’s completely normal–and even expected–to be fluent in more than one language. Many Europeans are bilingual and even trilingual, which makes sense since countries are so close together. However, Americans often lack in this department, most only taking the required language courses in high school and […]

Postcard Press Picks: Travelogue Podcast

Postcard Press Picks: Travelogue Podcast   I’m a huge podcast junkie. True crime, interview, and groups of friends talking about nothing. I love them, and since I spend most days working in a quiet office, they help pass the time while teaching me something new. That being said, I’m always looking for something new to […]
