Pennsylvania’s Land Of LincolnsDozens of relatives of the 16th president rest in an obscure Fayette County Cemetery, while the family maintains a mostly quiet Western Pennsylvania presence
Dozens, including the president’s great grandfather’s brother Mordecai, are buried in the tiny Lincoln family cemetery between Connellsville and Uniontown.
But these days, the local link is lost on most. Not even the Connellsville Area Historical Society seems to know anything about the Lincolns in their midst.

Wanderlust: I c e l a n d, sothwest
2013. Went to Iceland with my best friend. Every day we got up early and had morning coffee in our Reykjavik hotel before we jumped on a bus to seize the day. We went to Landmannalaugar, the blue lagoon, thingvellir national park and thorsmörk. And of course we spent some time exploring Reykjavik.
I am absolutely terrified of flying, but if there was one place in the world I could visit it would be Iceland. hands down.
