  3. The Food!

    When I travel, I believe that food is part of the trip. I would rather experience a new restaurant at higher cost than buy fast food and a souvenir remembering the trip.

    This past weekend my family and I attended Disney on Ice at the PNC Arena in Raleigh. I ran into one of my friends with the Hurricanes at the event and he said, “Wow, Jonathan you must be desperate for some ice!” I really do miss hockey and I caught myself just hoping for a…

    This college football season was exciting for me as all three of my favorite teams are going to a bowl game! Of course, I wish some had better records, but there cannot be three national champions. I’m just happy I have three bowls to watch! We all know I love my Alma Mater, NC State…
