I created this site as a journal to record my travels, and as a venue to share my experiences with my friends, family, and (former) colleagues.
It started as a record of my 3.5 month trip to Israel, Petra in Jordan, Egypt, Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. I then used it to document my cycling team’s time in France spectating the Tour de France and riding our bikes. After that, it was to chronicle my time in Central America. Now it’s a blog about my experiences living in Tel Aviv.
For a list of what I brought on the first trip, see this post. I tried to keep things to a minimum, though there are people out there who travel with even less.
Please forgive my excessive use of vignette in photographs early on. That setting on my camera also boosted contrast and saturation at a time before I understood even basic photo editing, so I used it a lot.
