January 2017

Our first trip to Hawai'i took us to Maui. We've never seen so many turtles while snorkeling, and it was also peak whale season. And we hiked a volcano and saw some cute birds.

December 2016

Condor watching at Pinnacles, yet another drive through Monument Valley, and petroglyphs of Canyon de Chelly.

September 2016

We'd already been to Yosemite and to Point Reyes, but made it back for more over a couple of late Summer weekends. Yosemite to hike Half Dome, and Point Reyes to see the lighthouse.

July 2016

Our last two weekend trips of the summer took us to Arizona and Seattle.

June 2016

A conference took us to the lovely island of Sardinia, where we had a chance to see some Roman ruins and play in the Mediterranean.

May 2016

After years on top of the places-to-go list, we finally made it to Machu Picchu. We were able to hike the Inca trail in, which was a beautiful hike with an incredible destination.

April 2016

The Spring saw more visits around California: Death Valley, Point Reyes, and the king of them all, Yosemite. The winter rains made for a spectacular spring, with a superbloom in Death Valley and waterfalls all over Yosemite.

February 2016

This last fall and early part of the winter we did alot of exploring around California, up and down the coast from SF.

January 2016

The heart of the west! In the last couple months we made it out to Utah and got to see something I've wanted to see for a long time - Monument Valley in the snow. We also made a weekend trip to see something else that has been on the list, the Alamo!.

June 2015

One last trip to Europe before moving across the country! My work on fsTimer put me in contact with someone at CERN, who offered to arrange a tour if I was ever in the area, so Geneva was the first stop. We toured around Lake Geneva for a few days, and then hit the top sites of Italy (except Venice, which we'll have to go back for someday).

February 2015

We had a chance to escape from the worst winter ever to get down to the Caribbean for a week. This year it was the beautiful island of CuraƧao, where we saw turtles, sting rays, squid, and lots and lots of fish.

November 2014

A few beautiful fall days in San Francisco.

July 2014

After years of talking about it, we finally took a road trip up to Nova Scotia.

China! Our first visit to the continent covered Beijing and a few surroundings.

March 2014

Spent a few days revisiting some of my favorite places in the southwest.

February 2014

A really cold week in January was the perfect time to buy plane tickets to the beautiful Virgin Islands.

October 2013

A few weeks in central/eastern Europe. I went to Prague for a conference, and wanted to visit Romania while we were on that side of the world. This involved driving through Slovakia, and since I figured the odds of ending up in Slovakia again were pretty low we should spend a few days and see what's there! Which was a great idea.

Aug 2013

I spent the summer working at IBM in Westchester NY. This meant lots of trips down to the city (which I hadn't really done for 7 years).

I took some pictures while I was there:

Jan 2013

Tickets to Belize were cheap this winter, so we took the opportunity to visit the Mayan ruins in Belize and Guatemala, something I've been wanting to do for about 10 years. We visited two sets of ruins in Belize and two sets in Guatemala, including 3 whole days at the incredible Tikal. We then also spent some time in the Caribbean waters off the coast of Belize.

Some of the pictures:

Another trip through Europe, this time with stops in the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, and Norway.

Some of my favorite pictures from the trip:

Mar 2012

I finally made it to Canada! We went on a roadtrip through Quebec province, stopping in Montreal and Quebec City. They are both nice cities, with a distinct foreign feel due to everything being in French.

Some highlights from my new pictures are:

My latest trip, and the first of the new year, was a winter escape to the Turks and Caicos Islands, in the Caribbean. Some great snorkeling, and a few photos.

Some highlights are:
