Earlier this month, Kat and I flew out to the west coast to visit some friends, and to spend four days in Monterey with my family.
The following entries were written in the Travel category:
So I’m back from Paris. When I uploaded a picture of my luggage to Flickr yesterday and wrote, “Coming back with more than i left with”, I guess it meant more than I thought.
I’m off to Paris for 10 days to spend time with Kat (and her friends, and a weekend with Leo, and his friends). Leo, Kat and I are going to roadtrip around Belgium this weekend, and I’m hoping to seek out some great Belgian beer and get a chance to take some photos.
I spent all day Saturday in Boston shooting photos with Matt. I rented a Nikon PC 85mm lens for the weekend and we played around with it all around town. We had more than just the tilt/shift lens, though.
I’m on my way home after spending the weekend in LA for Lauren and Michal’s wedding. Unfortunately, because I was in the wedding party, I don’t have any photos of the ceremony, and have only a few of the reception. I do have some nice ones from before the ceremony, though. This next week is going to be incredibly hectic, but I’ll try to get some of them online soon.
Earlier this month I spent a few days in Maine visiting friends and enjoying the scenery. Unfortunately, the foliage couldn’t seem to make up its mind, and the trees were mostly either green or brown.
This most recent trip to California is coming to a close, but it’s been a great trip. I spent four days in San Diego with my parents, three siblings, two brothers-in-law, four nephews and two nieces. We had a great time visiting the San Diego Wild Animal Park and Sea World, paddle boating around and watching fireworks across Mission Bay, and attending a Luau.
Kat and I got back from Maryland last night where we moved in a car-load of boxes to my new apartment. The entire round trip from Providence took us about 32 hours. The new apartment is decent — certainly workable for only nine months. I’ll be back there in a couple of weeks to finish moving in and start classes.
I spent the weekend (with Kat) in Santa Monica where my two nieces were celebrating a birthday and a baptism.
ESWC went really well. The Scripting workshop was quite good, making me a bit sad that I missed last years’ at which I was supposed to present a paper. The conference proper was also good, but the hallway (beach) track was far superior to most of the presented talks.
Maybe the way to kick-start this weblog again is to mention that I’m at the airport. Again.
So I’m back from Japan. I have been for about a week, actually. It took a while to get caught up on sleep, though. I haven’t had time to publish all the photos yet, but I’ve put some highlights in a (Flickr) Japan Set. Expect more soon.
Last week, Kat and I spent a few days of spring break in Vermont, doing all the Vermont things we could think of. Also, I leave tomorrow for two weeks visiting Kabir in Japan.
I spent the weekend with Kat visiting Tim in Albany.
Last Saturday we had a great early Thanksgiving in Providence before everyone left town to be with their families, and this week I’ve spent the actual Thanksgiving holiday with family in DC. Photos are now online.
I’m finally back from Ireland (and England) and ISWC. There are pictures online from the conference and my weekend in London.
Another month, another post from the airport. I’m off to Ireland for a week to attend ISWC, and then to London for a weekend to visit Leo. I’ll try to post updates while I’m there, and I’ll post pictures upon my return.
Matt, Kat and I spent the day at the Keene Pumpkin Festival.
Just got back from a weekend of Sea Kayaking in Maine. It was cold, wet, and windy. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
Just got back from spending the weekend in Albany with Tim and Gary.
New photos are now online from the Cnation mini-reunion at Sunset and the Housewarming at our new place in Providence.
I’m back at the airport. Again. Back to LA for a week. I’ve got lots of work to do while there, and lots of other things to take care of, but I promise, I’m going to start posting more often.
Well, I’m off again, this time to LA. Again. I’ll be there through Sunday night, hanging with a critical mass of the samo-fools.
I’m on a train heading for Washington right now, and tomorrow morning I’ll be driving to Roanoke for an extended family gathering. I’ll be back on a train on Sunday night, and back in Providence on Monday morning.
OK. Everyday since getting back, I’ve promised myself that I’d post an update. And sure enough, every day I’d not do it. But today is different. Today is the day that I get back into the habit of posting. I swear.
We’ve been hanging out in the French Quarter and enjoying the night-life of New Orleans. We leave tomorrow heading back to Providence, but New Orleans has been tons of fun.
We made it through Texas! Now for a few days in New Orleans. We’ve staying a couple of blocks from Bourbon Street, so this should be tons of fun. I’ll try to upload some pictures before we leave for home on Saturday.
Simon’s been doing a pretty good job at updating his weblog during our drive, and I’ve been concentrating most of my energy on the driving, so I’ll let him take care of that. But just wanted to post an update saying we’re in Nevada for the night, we’ll be in Simon’s hometown tomorrow night, and Santa Monica on Friday night.
Simon and I have started our cross-country journey.
I’m just leaving the house to head for Boston, and from there I’ll be flying to LA for the weekend. If you need me, call the cell. Otherwise, enjoy the weekend and I’ll be back on Sunday night.
We ended up visiting Shipyard in Portland, Maine, Otter Creek/Wolavers in Middlebury, Vermont, and Magic Hat in Burlington, Vermont. We also stopped at the Great Lost Bear for lunch on Wednesday. Here’s a rundown of where we went, and what we drank.
I’m back from the desert.
Off to LA today for a week in Death Valley. Tons of pictures upon my return. Promise.
In contrast to my flight yesterday, here’s a list of some of the more interesting people I’ve had to sit next to while traveling.
I never thought I’d say this, but I’m going to miss driving in LA. I still hate the driving-in-LA part, but for the past two weeks I’ve been driving a brand new Toyota Prius, and it’s an amazing thing.
Here’s a photo of Logan from the plane while we were waiting to be de-iced.
Despite being a complete zoo, the check-in process at Logan was amazingly efficient, and I’m now waiting on my flight back to LA.
