Sometimes she is so caught up in embarking, she has no need to open up the good ole’ laptop. Whilst she feels an apology is due when she misses a post or two, The Embarkiste never says désolé for a weekend getaway. Once her former home, The Embarkiste knows the streets of Savannah Georgia better than any palm reader and their prey. With nearly six years in the making, here she shares her very own Shopping Guide to the charming southern riverside town, complete with the very best and most unique of local stores.
She imagines few dusky afternoons dreamier than those spent canopied amongst glittering stardust and galaxies whilst soaring above the electric streets of the City of Angels. In a sanctuary where all wonders and ponderment of our existence are welcome with a wealth of knowledge and awe, The Embarkiste travels high into the Hollywood Hills to the beloved Griffith Observatory for a restoring astronomy lesson and much, much more.
Oh heavenly globes of powdered sugar, fresh cream, and melt-in-your mouth gooeyness. The Embarkiste thanks her lucky stars for the delightful gift of doughnuts and loves this sweet treat whilst embarking (though she is careful not to dangerously indulge near her nest.) Doughnuts are the new “black” with plentiful pop-ups springing up around every corner. She ponders what makes the experience so euphoric; perhaps its their candy-coated appearance, or maybe so the fluffiness awaiting inside. Whatever the magic trick, she’s mesmerized. Local word and reference sites, such as Thrillist, points her pointy heels in the direction of circular goodness.
Here, The Embarkiste shares her doughy treasures from around the globe and invites the world to share their favourites in the comment section.
Sometimes she’ll sneak into the cinema and allow herself to be whisked away to another world, often forgetting that the projected kingdoms and faraway lands are make-believe and thus created digitally. Today’s technology has the power to trick the eyes and mind into believing such magical places exist, and digital artist Robert Jahns has mastered this skill so convincingly, it’s landed his work on numerous “Top” lists, including his Instagram noted as the world’s “50 Best Instagram Photographers to follow.”
