I came across a Columbus Dispatch article on filmmakers making feature films in Columbus, Ohio. Very cool.
Apparently, the state of Ohio recently passed a very generous 30% tax credit rebate on productions, which has spurred motion picture investment and productions.
With a 30% rebate, maybe it’s time to produce a movie in my homestate?!
Who knew there was a guy who specialized in designing luxury resorts?

The Denver Post published “The unexpected benefits of traveling alone” article on benefits of traveling solo. Good reading.

There are some quotes and references in the article to the travel websites Nomadic Matt and SoloTravelWorld, which are great resources.
