Cockrell Butterfly Center, Houston

The Cockrell Butterfly Center at Houston's Museum of Natural Science: a lovely and serene locale, complete with mariposas bonitas floating gracefully throughout the center. It was amazing to be surrounded by such graceful creatures beautifully dancing around the space.

A lovely place for solitary contemplative visits to school field trips, family outings, or even dates!

Barnaby's Cafe, Houston, Texas

Barnaby's Cafe is a cool spot with a great atmosphere for brewery-style eats in a family-friendly setting, all with an excellent staff. We were obsessed with the place due to the super fun and sweet mascot (of which we saw a real live Barnaby style dog in River Oaks, walking calmly and confidently across the street on our first journey to this restaurant - so that was a special connection to have!) and of course - who could not mention - the delicious, California-international-fusion style of food. For more photos of Barnaby's, here is a link with cute mural pics: http://hautehouston.blogspot.tw/2009/04/barnabys-cafe-river-oaks.html?m=1

Reykjavik rocks! I'm missing my time on the little island of Island. But Bjork does not disappoint in bringing me back, at least in my daydreams, to her lovely home. Here's to Iceland's quirky first lady of rock, for giving a shout out to Wanderlust.

Quirky Wanderlust Goes to Washington

I recently watched a documentary about Mr. Smith Goes to Washington... and the film has permeated my mind... thus, my current wanderlusting is directed at Washington, D.C... how about you? What is your current quirky wanderlust?
