    Chicago, October 2022

    I recently returned from a trip to Chicago where I went to a Thursday Night Football game at Soldier Field, spent an afternoon with family, and met up with some friends that I’ve known for a few years in an online-only capacity. Of a 28-person online group chat that I’m a part of, 14 people…

    Angela and I recently returned from a week in London during which we visited a number of tourist sights and ate a variety of delicious foods.

    Park City, August 2022

    Angela, Fitz, and I recently returned from a road trip to Park City, Utah; a return after our successful trip at the beginning of June. While we had fun, we ran into some unexpected difficulties on this trip and had to cut our activities short by a couple of days. We were certainly disappointed by…

    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…

    Dana Point and Santa Monica, July 2022

    Angela and I recently returned from a road trip to California with Fitz during which we visited Dana Point and Santa Monica. This was our second road trip with him since his spinal surgeries in December 2021 and a follow-up to our earlier trip to Park City, Utah. The impetus for this trip was my…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

  • Chicago, Seattle, and Phoenix, December 2021

    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…
