The Great Escape: Months 101 + 102 + 103 thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’ve wrapped up blogging the fourth quarter of 2019, of which this is a huge roundup. What a weird time to look back on. These first three months after losing my mom were, largely, a fog. I guess much of the year was. As the world transitioned from fall into winter, I started…

Trading Pine Trees for Palm Trees: Christmas in Los Angeles thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this trip to California in December. In 2019, for the first time in my life, I spent Christmas somewhere other than my hometown of Albany, New York or my home island of Koh Tao, Thailand.

Taking my Little Bear to Big Bear: A Dog Friendly Trip to Big Bear Lake, California thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this trip to California in December. New York and LA. East Coast to West Coast.

But we had come to California with a mission — watching our friends Bron and Ryan tie the knot at a another gorgeous Northern California body of water, Donner Lake in Truckee.  I’d been…

Three Perfect Summer Days in Mammoth Lakes, California thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this trip to California in August. I realize for some this is a difficult time to read about travel. I am writing often about our current global crisis — the impact it’s having on me personally, on the world of travel, and on the world at large…

The Great Escape: Months 84 + 85 + 86 Roundup thumbnail

Where we’re at: I finished recapping my summer of 2018, of which this is a huge roundup. I’ve been working on this post for what feels like forever. I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted. To be honest, I think this draft sitting in my queue kind of messed with my head a little…
