Welcome

| baltimore |

I came here by accident. Just over four years ago I received orders to Bethesda, MD. Having never been to Maryland before in my life I was under the impression that it was a small town. Well, little did I know that it was adjacent to Washington D.C. and whats more - only 30 miles away from one of the most amazing cities that I have ever visited in my entire life - Baltimore.

Now, in the past I have heard a lot of things about Baltimore - most of them not so great. But when I got the opportunity to spend some time in the Charm City - I finally realized why it was called that. I fell in love at first sight and now feel that it is necessary to pay a small tribute to this magical city. I will do so through this blog.

Baltimore is not perfect. True, there is a high crime rate - and parts of town that you would not want to find yourself in. But thats a superficial outlook. If dig just a little bit deeper you will find a city that is filled with a rich history, fascinating culture, amazing beer and delicious food. One that is teeming with original artists, tons of theatres, and inspirational people trying to make a difference.

My goal through this journey will be to show the rest of the world that Baltimore is not just a worn down relic of the industrial revolution. Instead, it truly is a charming city filled with unimaginable wonders just waiting to be explored.
