A few weeks ago, I met Brian of Bikeandboots.com at a Korean BBQ place in Vienna, VA. He was in town visiting a friend, who was also with us.
I'm always excited to meet travel bloggers, whether away or at home, however Brian was the first one who I met who had joined my new site, Travel Blog Success.
He's planning to kick off his next round of adventures later this year by riding from Texas to San Diego by way of Alaska!
We talked about our travels a lot, and blogging a little, while enjoying the Asian feast before us.
Then, while I was in New York City last week, I met up with Debbie, another new member of Travel Blog Success. A few months ago, she decided to quit her lawyering job and spend 6 months traveling to 17 countries, starting with Iceland in early April. She's excited to have Girls Travel Blog up and running, and has just started to dig into the first few TBS lessons.
After drinks at a small wine bar called 10 Degrees on St. Mark's Place, we stepped outside to find some dinner.
Less than a minute later, we happened upon Hummus Place, which she assured me was the topic pick of Israelis in the city. In we went, and as the photo reflects, it is no ordinary hummus they serve up. It was easily the best presented, creamiest, most delicious hummus I've ever eaten. And I enjoyed it with my first glass of Israeli red wine.
On a roll, I let it ride with a traditional Israeli dessert called Malabi.
