Walking Portland, Burning Calories After One Serious Burger!

Work took me to a conference in Portland [Oregon, not Maine] for a few days. I heard a lot about Portland, about the Pacific Northwest in general, mostly about the rain, how much people like outdoor activities, and that they don’t do sweet tea like it’s done in the south.

Lightning Quick Day Trip to Boston

We really were on a short time schedule, with the pre-wedding celebration in the afternoon, but we headed out to Boston, 45 minutes away, to see what we could squeeze in. Even though the four energy drinks were still buzzing in my blood.

Nduku’s Trip to London, England

Whenever we go on a trip, I’m the designated photographer. Partly because I’ve done it all my life; partly because Nduku doesn’t really take a lot of photos. When her work sent her to London a for a week, though, I was impressed that she took more than five pictures!

I can’t remember where all these places are, what she told me about each of these photos, but here they are anyway.

From Grand Central Station to the Brooklyn Bridge — All On Foot

With more sites to see in New York than possible to do in a day, Chad asked where I wanted to start. So, I said we’ll start at Grand Central station, end at the other end of the Brooklyn Bridge and whatever we see during a very, very long walk, well, that’s what I want to see.


 

Grand Central to the Brooklyn Bridge
