Journey to the Golden Temple (Nov 2011)

Tweet There are very few places in this world that offer the combination of majestic grandeur and intimacy. And, the Golden Temple in Amritsar, India is one of them. We left Delhi by car, wound our way in and out of the chaotic, urban traffic of the city of 11 million, and found ourselves in […]

A day at the Newseum

Tweet With everything that’s been going on in Tunisia, Egypt, and Jordan, we felt inspired to visit the Newseum in downtown DC. We’ve actually been meaning to go for a couple of years, but just haven’t made it. It’s one of the few, if only, museums in the nation’s capital that isn’t free. But, quite […]

Virginia State Fairin’ It!

Tweet Tractors, calves giving birth, fried Oreos, fried dough, fried lemonade, fried EVERYthing, bunnies, flags…southerners, northerners, farmers, staffers, techies, lumberjacks, Nascar fans, bureaucrats, free spirits, families…face paint, carnival rides, things that go ’round, things that go up, things that should come down, crafts, candy, fudge…more tractors…vintage, historical, charming.  A collision of worlds.  Not quite the […]

US Open 2010 Re-Cap

Tweet Federer, Nadal, Wozniacki, Ivanovic, Schiavone, and more!  Just a few of the names in tennis whom we saw last Thursday.  If you’re a fan of the sport, you should try to check out the US Open at least once.  We’ve been to the tournament before, but this time was a little different.  Mainly because […]

Ode to New York City

Tweet We’re in Manhattan for the long weekend and are so very happy to be here!  We love everything about New York City.  From the food to the buroughs to the hum in the morning and the bustle at night to the diversity to the cutting-edge, eclectic style to the gruff charm.  It’s got it all.  […]

La Belle France – Part II

Tweet Paris – am I allowed to say ‘nuf said? Well, it goes without saying that the city of lights, even when you’re only there for literally 48 hours, is magical. Just enough time to see the sites and have sushi with old friends! We stayed in the Marais, which was great. I’d only visited […]

La Belle France – Part I

Tweet Touch-down Paris!  No, not that type of TD.  Though, I was just saying that I’m excited for football season to begin.  NFL, that is.  Not vuvuzelas.  Ah, the World Cup!  Anyway, though it’s literally right across that great, big Atlantic, we opted for the DC – London – Paris – train (not the streamlined […]

WPPI wrap-up …

Tweet WPPI 2010. Nuf said. It was our first time at the annual convention and we learned oodles. Not to mention it was in Vegas, one of our favorite playgrounds west of the Mississippi, mainly because of the insane people watching and shooting opportunities. It’s probably the most eclectic and eccentric city in the U.S. […]

Small Adventures In A Very Big Brazil

Tweet Before WPPI, I headed down south for a brief, but hectic trip to Brazil.  I actually visited the Brazilian Amazon several years ago, which was awesome, but had never seen any of the major cities.  We spent a week in Sao Paulo, which is basically the financial center of the country.  A bit chaotic […]
