Last year I bought a scratch off map and realized I’ve gone to 26 of our 50 united states. While hanging out after a dinner party, Jill and I were discussing the map and comparing what states we had been to. From there a plan was hatched to visit some of our missing states together. The […]Read more "An excursion to Arkansas & Oklahoma"
Earlier this week I went on a business trip to Knoxville, Tennessee. I’ve been to Nashville before, so I was pretty excited to see a different part of the state.

I was lucky to have brought a few t-shirts, or else I may have needed to buy new […]Read more "Taiwan Business Trip"
Last Wednesday I left for China on a business trip. With lady luck watching over me, I made my way to Changchun. Good fortune allowed my work in China to finish on Saturday, and so on Sunday I had a day to explore before heading to Taiwan on Monday. My parents and family friends told […]Read more "Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival"
