Greece, July 2022

We recently returned from a trip to Greece during which we explored important sites from the Ancient and Classical era, both in and around Athens, before celebrating Angela’s birthday on the island of Santorini. As an added bonus, and because of a flight schedule change, we spent two nights in Switzerland before returning home. The… Continue reading Greece, July 2022

Park City, June 2022

Angela and I recently returned from a road trip to Park City, Utah with Fitz. This was our first road trip with him since his spinal surgeries in December 2021 and the first time we had subjected him to what I considered a semi-strenuous workload for a nine-year-old dachshund, especially one with a history of… Continue reading Park City, June 2022

Thailand, May 2022

We recently returned from a trip to Thailand in celebration of the start of my year-long sabbatical. While said sabbatical started at the beginning of May, this was our first trip together since I stopped working and it was our first chance to travel knowing that when we returned home, I wouldn’t face an avalanche… Continue reading Thailand, May 2022

Italy, April 2022

I recently returned from a trip to Italy with my brother, James, in celebration of his 35th birthday. In the middle of the pandemic, I asked him where in the world he’d want to go or what single attraction he’d be most excited to see on a trip together. After some deliberation, he decided on… Continue reading Italy, April 2022

New York City, February 2022

Angela and I recently visited New York City to see a couple of Broadway shows and visit friends. This was a true vacation so we didn’t have much planned outside of the theater tickets we held when we arrived. As always, it was great to return to a city that we’ve grown to love so… Continue reading New York City, February 2022

Chicago, Seattle, and Phoenix, December 2021

During the month of December, I flew around the country to see three football games with friends and family. These mini-vacations were planned before the Omicron wave of Covid hit and before Fitz suffered paralysis requiring surgery at the end of November. Given those things, I seriously considered calling off the short trips. After consulting… Continue reading Chicago, Seattle, and Phoenix, December 2021

Italy, September 2021

Angela recently returned from a long delayed trip to Italy with her mother, Theresa.

New York City, October 2021

Angela and I recently visited New York City for the first time since February of 2020. This was a fairly spontaneous trip that we took because I desperately needed a break from work and we missed the city that we’ve grown to love so much. Bookings Because this trip was booked on such short notice… Continue reading New York City, October 2021

Nashville, August 2021

I recently returned from a trip to Nashville where my father and I met to see the Chicago Bears play the Tennessee Titans in the third preseason game of the 2021 NFL season. With only a couple of nights together, we packed in the fun and had a great time. I am going to post… Continue reading Nashville, August 2021
