A long weekend in Havana, Cuba

A long weekend in Havana, Cuba

A couple of years ago it was “go before it changes too much” and now it’s “go before you cannot (easily) go” given the recent political developments. Still, neither was a greatly motivating factor for us to go. Instead, a couple of friends and myself were interested in a weekend trip together, Cuba was on all of our radars, and it worked well for all of us to get there from different cities. Check, check, and check.

Thanksgiving in Panama

Thanksgiving in Panama

Years ago while in the southern part of Costa Rica, I could peer into Panama. Well, at least the tops of some distant hills, but it was enough to get me thinking about a trip there. Fast forward to a year ago, a friend and I were sitting in my living room on New Years Day and I was looking around online at various trip ideas using airline miles and I stumbled upon not one but two discount business class tickets using points, direct from Denver to Panama City. Without a whole lot of additional thought, I bought both and we set out to plan a week there.

I recently spent a weekend in Paris. Not as a part of a larger European trip, just a weekend in Paris. And I live in Denver.

Alaska Trip Recap

Alaska Trip Recap

Alaska is a destination that has been on my bucket list for years, but the pieces had never come together quite right to make it a reality. That finally changed this past summer as a good friend and I planned a two-week trip to the 49th State.

Fly Fishing on the South Platte River

Fly Fishing on the South Platte River

I don’t fish, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like going fishing. In particular I enjoy fly fishing as it’s generally more active and engaging, especially if you’re not the one actually fishing. From a photography standpoint, the cool casting and constant movement doesn’t hurt either.
