Destinations

While I was very excited to show Anders around my hometown of Albany and my childhood vacation destination of Martha’s Vineyard, he was understandably most excited to shown around the city of my most recent residence: New York. He could only take so much time off work, so our time in the Big Apple was limited…

Reporting live from Peru! Well, just barely thanks to the expletive-inducingly slow internet connections in Iquitos.

The one where I pack like one of those people, those people who travel the planet for years on end with…

As this post goes live I will be en route to Lima, Peru. I can’t believe it’s really happening! This summer seemed to go by on fast forward and this trip just snuck up on me. I wish I could have pressed pause on life and enjoyed just a little more time at home before leaving…
