A Look Ahead to 2015

What’s in store for 2015? I’m excited to find out, with so many opportunities laid before me. A few things are planned and, excitingly enough, even more is not.

The Ghosts of Christmas 2014

When it comes to travel, I’ll be honest, this past year was rather slow, all things considered. I didn’t jet away to some far off foreign land, as I’ve done in years past.

The Best View in San Diego

What’s the best view in San Diego? Easy. Go to Cabrillo National Monument and spin around in a circle. You’ll see the vast Pacific Ocean, south to Mexico, and out over the harbor to downtown San Diego and the mountains beyond. In my two trips to town, I’ve seen no better view. And it’s a […]

Looking Ahead to 2014 Travel

Where am I going in 2014? I’ve already been asked this several times this holiday season. And with the 2013 I had, I can’t say it’s an unwarranted question. But, quite honestly, and likely for the first time in my life, I really have no idea what my plans are for the coming year. I’m […]

Christmas in San Diego

I’m excited to ditch the snow and cold this winter season, skipping out on the normal trip home to Minnesota and instead spend some of my holiday time visiting family in warm and sunny San Diego. It has been years since I’ve been there, and I’m ready to get back. Now, I just wonder if […]
