Murals by Diego Rivera, Palacio Nacional de Mexico

March 2015

One afternoon after finishing up work in Mexico City (a few years back), I dropped off my gear at the hotel, called an Uber car and hopped in and headed to the city center at the main plaza to check out some of the local history in the area.

I had heard and read a lot about all the things to see in and around Mexico City and was fascinated by the history to be found there that dated back hundreds of years.

While walking around the plaza that afternoon, I went inside the Palacio Nacional de Mexico where  I was fortunate to see the famous murals created by Diego Rivera.

These murals are rich in Mexico’s deep history and very fascinating to visit and view.

Crux Fermentation Project, Bend Oregon

September 2016

Whenever I am in Bend Oregon, I try and venture out to visit as many local breweries as I can to have a chance to taste test the beers that are usually always really good.

On a trip last year I visited Crux in Bend, met up with a co-worker and we had a good time sampling several beers.

Landing in Atlanta

August 2017

I’ve been flying on airplanes since I was around 6 years old when my parents would put me on a plane and send me to Chicago Illinois to spend summers with my grandparents.

I don’t know why but flying still completely fascinates me every time I get on a plane (which is usually several times a week). The fact I can travel all the way across the entire country in 6-7 hours is awesome.  Read on for more – including a landing video.

Lake Champlain, Burlington Vermont

August 2017

Took a recent business trip to Montreal Canada and flew into Burlington Vermont to then drive across the border into Canada to my work site.

This was a very interesting, educational and fun trip. By traveling this route ended up saving a good amount of money. It turns out flying into a city near the border was several hundred dollars less costly in airfare than it would have been flying directly into Montreal – plus it was cool that it provided a nice opportunity to explore and experience the local scenery while driving to and from the work location across the border.

Georgia Day Trip

July 2017

I recently moved from California to Georgia with my family a few months ago and have been busy getting unpacked, settled and set-up for a while now.  Turns out moving cross-country is a lot more work than I originally anticipated!

This past weekend we finally had a chance to relax and get out and explore the local area so we headed out for a drive between the many trees to see what we could see in this vast sea of greenery.

Welcome Sign at Denver Airport

October 2016

The Great American Beer Festival (GABF) is a three-day annual event hosted by the Brewers Association, held in Denver, Colorado. The GABF brings visitors from around the world to sample thousands of different American craft beers.

Getting tickets can be tough, they sell out very fast. This is after all, America’s greatest beer festival and with hundreds of vendors and thousands of attendees it’s easy to see why this beer festival is so large yet sells out quickly every year.

October 2016

I’ve driven across New York a couple of times for work over the past year and in between all the cities and trees along the highways during the drive I always noticed the signs for canal locks and became very curious about this canal that runs east-west across the state of New York.
