Cape Cod, MA

Well, this travel blog is mostly dead for 2020 given the COVID pandemic, but we are making do with the best we can given the circumstances. We’d planned trip to Spain last year to celebrate the end of my first year of MBA, as well as a trip to Banff to celebrate my best friend’s…

Medellin & Guatape

The first few weeks of the semester have whizzed by, and I feel like I’m only getting some breathing room this weekend as everyone else is on a ski weekend in Killington…while I decided to skip 🙂 This was a nice exercise to prove that I’m at the age where I really don’t have FOMO…

Salento, Colombia

Happy 2020! It’s been a great few weeks of the new decade. We spent the first 10 days in Colombia for our annual January warm weather getaway, before I returned back to my second semester of my MBA. I was feeling very thankful last night as I mused on my friendships – I see many…

White Mountains, NH

I had no big travel plans this semester as I settled into life as a MBA student, but thought I should put a blogpost together for our quick trip to the White Mountains over Fall Break last month, as well as give a little update for the last post of this decade! I can’t even…

Yosemite & Point Reyes

Yosemite My hubs insisted on writing the introduction to this blog post, so here it is: Hello there it’s me again a real traveling bob just traveling across the big world aplenty and whoo boy have i ever got a story for you this time when i will write the blog post you will see…

San Francisco

San Francisco For how often I used to visit SF for work, I’ve never spent time being a true tourist. So, when a trip to Yosemite got planned (separate blogpost on that to come), I spent the rest of my downtime visiting some of SF’s most touristy sites (no shame!). It’s always wonderful visiting such…

The Eastern Cape & Panorama Route

On our way back from Kruger National Park, we were able to spend some time on the Panorama Route and various towns in the eastern cape. It was fascinating observing the differences between the Eastern and Western Cape – the Eastern Cape is a bit quieter, and a bit less cosmopolitan. We spent a full…

The Garden Route, South Africa

Dear reader, It’s Saturday morning in Boston, on March 2nd, and it’s blizzarding outside. Currently I’m regretting my choice of signing up for a FlyWheel class this morning, forcing me to trek out into the snow. So instead, I’m reliving sunnier times in SOUTH AFRICA. The Garden Route was the last leg of our South…

Cape Peninsula, South Africa

The Cape of Good Hope was a beautiful day trip from Cape Town, as the farthest point was only 1.5 hours away. This was a great sightseeing drive and apparently ranks with the most scenic drives in the world. We rented a car and planned on doing the Cape Peninsula our last day in the…

Cape Town, South Africa

According to a “Here’s where you should live based on your Myers-Briggs type” articles (quality journalism, aka guilty pleasure), I should live in Cape Town. And they’re probably completely right – Cape Town has it ALL: Great food, adventure sports, beaches, mountains/hiking, fascinating cityscape, etc. Not only is the city itself wonderful, it’s a great…
