So it’s been awhile since I last posted anything on here and I’ve definitely been a few places - Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Amsterdam again, Lake Geneva, Milan, Cannes, and now Barcelona. It’s been one helluva incredible journey. As much as I’d like to share all the different things I’ve seen and done, something much more interesting has happened. Something...
I arrived here in Nancy from Paris on Sunday afternoon by train and was greeted by my parents at the station. It was the first time I’d seen them since I left DC back in March and so it was really nice to see them again. After dropping my suitcase off the hotel, we headed over to the Place Stanislas for an afternoon drink. This plaza is incredible and I posted a photo of it at night below....
I arrived in Paris from Edinburgh on Thursday night after a slightly delayed layover in Heathrow. My flight ended up being a few hours late and it was close to almost midnight when I actually walked out of the airport. I was glad that I had made a reservation at a nearby airport hotel since I think it would’ve been a bit of a hassle getting from Orly into Paris at that time of night. The...
After 3 great weeks back in San Francisco I was once again on my way. My first stop is Edinburgh, Scotland, which I arrived in last Saturday (5/5). I was greeted at the airport by my friend Alex, who promptly got me on the bus, into town, and over to one of his neighborhood pubs called the Jolly Judge. And my neighborhood, I mean, less than a 100 yards from their flat. I’ve been staying here...
An amazing view of Edinburgh from the top of Arthur’s Seat.
At the beach in St. Andrews, Scotland.
After a month of traveling across the country, I’m going to be spending the next two weeks just hanging out in San Francisco before I head off to Europe. Since I’ve left DC I haven’t stayed in one place more than 3 nights, so it’s going to be weird being in one place again, even it’s for a short time. I’ve really come to enjoy being on the road and moving on to...
So 3 weeks later, 4,200+ miles, 12 cities, and 6 po’boys I’m back in California. Since my last post I’ve visited Colorado Springs, Moab, Las Vegas, and now I’m in LA. I’ll be heading up to SF on Saturday to celebrate my birthday and also being back in the City. Then on Monday I’m going to head up to Tahoe for a few days to hang out with some more friends....
Today was a long haul from San Antonio (via Austin) to Santa Fe. I went over 750 miles in just 14 hours. This was definitely the longest driving day so far and hopefully for the rest of the trip. Besides almost running out of gas in the desert somewhere around the border of Texas and New Mexico, it was actually not too bad. I spent yesterday hanging out with my friend Shannon and Maria who were...
I can’t believe it’s already been 11 days since I started out on this trip. These past few days have just flown by. Since my last post I’ve been in Atlanta, Pensacola, New Orleans, Houston, and I’m currently in Austin. I’ve been having a really great time in all these places. From taking a stroll down memory lane in Atlanta to exploring the city of New Orleans,...
Spent yesterday hanging out of with my friend Justin at his neighborhood country club playing tennis and enjoying drinks at the bar afterward. He and his wife moved to this small town in Southern Virginia last June for work. It’s definitely a small town, but I had a nice time just relaxing and hanging with Justin and Mona. I headed out this afternoon on my second leg of the road trip to...
