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…

Lake Placid/Upstate New York

And with that, 2018 is over. This was quite a momentous year, although it didn’t compare with the craziness of 2017. Select highlights: M and I officially got married in August, and then had our wedding celebration in October, and the second half of the year was focused on applying to business school. In December…

Door County, Wisconsin

Door County, Wisconsin I’d almost forgotten to write this blogpost, because our trip to Wisconsin felt like a normal weekend away with family. We took an extended Labor Day Weekend to visit M’s summer vacation spot when he was growing up. Most of M’s extended family still lives within a tiny radius of the Milwaukee…

Sedona & Scottsdale, Arizona

Sedona & Scottsdale, Arizona A beautiful, albeit quick, weekend trip to the scorching desert with girlfriends IT and JF. There’s no one else I would’ve wanted to hike in 120 degree weather with! It’s super important for me to maintain my own life outside of “married life” – and not out of necessity (long distance…
