The last trip of 2016 was to sunny Las Vegas to celebrate Robert’s birthday.  He worked through his last birthday on a business trip in Kiev – and to say it made him happy is an understatement. We made a pact – never again work on a birthday. We chose Vegas kind of as a joke. Since......

Tokyo was a whirlwind trip. Right after a business trip, two co-workers and I travelled back through Narita Airport and decided to stay for a few days.

I’ve got a few hours before my flight to Tokyo starts boarding. Which means I’m sitting at the airport, dealing with the, at-best, intermittent wifi and watching the other flights board and depart. The S gates at Seatac Airport know me well – I’m here every few months though generally just in the nick of......

When I was in Iceland, I got a text from a friend telling me that we should go to St. Petersburg and that I needed to book my tickets. So I did. That night. A few days in Russia sounded perfect....

We stood in the cold, scouting out the best view to capture Geysir erupting. I had both my phone and my Canon out to try to get the action on both of them. We stood in silence with ten or twelve people around us even after the first eruption. Then we waited for the second......
