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…

Catalina Island & LA Area (2019)

Finally, I’m all caught up on travel blogging, and I don’t even have a huge trip coming up soon – just a long weekend in the White Mountains for fall break, and no huge trips until January after that! We are almost at the end of our first term, and while people are starting to…

Pacific Coast Highway

My last trip before heading off to bschool, back in early August, was a roadtrip down the Pacific Coast Highway for a slightly early 1-year anniversary trip. It’s a bit crazy to think that I only started school a little over a month ago, and our 1 year anniversary was only a month ago –…

Qingdao, China

Our time in Qingdao was a whirlwind; we ended up only having 2 days here. I didn’t think we would need that much time here, since it’s not as touristy as Shanghai or Beijing, but in reality I wish that we had stayed longer because it was probably the best city we visited in China….

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…

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…
