On the Road and In Your Backyard

Good Morning All,

On The Road and In Your Backyard is a weekday feature spotlighting reader submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, please share your part of the world, whether you’re traveling or just in your locality. Share some photos and a narrative, let us see through your pictures and words. We’re so lucky each and every day to see and appreciate the world around us!

Submissions from commenters are welcome at tools.balloon-juice.com

Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the picture (this one’s for Betty)!


Today, pictures from valued commenter mapaghimagsik.

One of my favorite Tiki bars, it opened just this week. Its hard not to love a bar you’ve visited several times before it even opened.

Some amazing carving and light work make this one of my very favorite Tiki Bars.


Thank you so much mapaghimagsik, do send us more when you can.


Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.


One again, to submit pictures: Use the Form or Send an Email

    We were just discussing the design of the new bar last night. We don’t have the budget for something that spectacular! :)
