Portugal: Introducing Peta & Emma

  Please note that I am super jet-lagged as I write this (not that I’m a quality writer or anything).  After wrapping up Veronica and Anders’ epic wedding in Norway, I headed over to Porto to meet these two very lovely WOMANS. I met Peta and Emma in the summer of 2016 when traveling through South Africa and Namibia. Peta is Australian and Emma is British. Six months ago, Peta ...

V&A Wedding: A Farewell

  A Tex-Mex brunch and a jump into the fjords to finish off an already perfect wedding. It was time to say goodbye to old chums and new friends. Farewells are hard – often harder in the company of good folk – but perhaps we will all run around together another time.

Seeing Veronica and Anders again ...

Bergen

Well, here’s all that I have from Bergen. Hanging with the lovely Anja. It’s my second time back in Bergen. I was here two years ago when it was snowing in December. It looked ...

New York

  I visited Kevin and Vanessa in NYC and had the chance to catch up with Elizabeth (whom I had not seen for three years) and Audrey. The weather was unusually punishing in NY, and I struggled to enjoy the city as I raced to finished grading student papers before the semester ended. Luckily, since Kevin works on the 64th floor of the One World Trade Center, I got to do some work there ...
