This is a special week as I am visiting Yellowstone National Park for the first time, adding one more stamp to my National Parks Passport. I’m enjoying my stay in a cute little cabin in an area where you can cross three states in the span of 30 minutes. It’s honestly a fantastic time to be at the park, on an off week, because the crowds are quite tame.
I can finally say I have experienced Old Faithful. We enjoyed some time in the general store to pick up some of the famous ice cream, which I traded for some hot chocolate because how do people eat that cold delight in such temperatures? After that it was time to see Old Faithful in real life. It’s fascinating they’ve got the eruptions down to a science, although not precise. Hearing the pressure build up and to finally see the magnificent spout reach for the sky like the fountain show at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas without the use of man-made technology was impressive. We visited various other geysers in the vicinity and even got a close-up experience with a bison enjoying his dinner. Apparently, the force of Old Faithful is more intense in the summertime, but it was impressive enough for a first timer like me.
We later enjoyed a walk through Old Faithful Inn, built in 1904 with some of the most beautiful architecture I’ve seen recently. The property used to do tours, but, due to COVID, they are no longer doing them. You can still walk around and get a bird’s-eye view of the lobby. All guests are required to wear masks inside the property. The terrace here is another great location to see Old Faithful with a warm drink in hand.
I’ll have more to report in my next blog!

Homer and Janet by Homer Review
The Marais District, covering swaths of Paris’ 3rd and 4th arrondissments, has a distinctively gritty glamour that reveals it to be one of the city’s great incubators for new French food, fashion and lifestyle trends. It is here Moïse Sfez took on the challenge of creating street food establishments Homer in 2017 and Janet by Homer in 2022, doing it in such a way they both transcend the novelty of being regional American comfort food offered at stylized lunch counters matching up with New England lobster shacks and New York delis. Overwhelming local response and Sfez winning the 2018 Lobster Roll World’s Championship title in Portland, Maine, solidified him as a Paris restaurateur and one of France’s hottest culinary stars.
