  • Royal Gorge Bridge (Cañon City, Colorado)

    Royal Gorge Bridge (Cañon City, Colorado)

    If you’re looking to gorge upon a gorgeous gorge then look no further. Yes, I did say that when we visited here, much to my kid’s dismay. I believe that type of dad comment is what they call ‘cringe’. In any case yes that is a big ol’ gorge found beneath the Royal Gorge Bridge. […]

  • The Incorruptible St. Zita Mummy (Lucca, Italy)

    The Incorruptible St. Zita Mummy (Lucca, Italy)

    I visited Italy for the first time and the wonderful area of Tuscany and Pisa. Strangely enough, I did not see that leaning tower…however, I did come across something equally as interesting. That being the naturally mummified remains of St. Zita, who is one of the ‘incorruptibles’, a saint who is deemed so pure and […]

  • The Soviet War Memorial at Treptower Park (Berlin, Germany)

    The Soviet War Memorial at Treptower Park (Berlin, Germany)

    I do have a bit of a thing for very symmetrical parks. So I had to check out Treptower Park. I also love reveling in how capitalism has, and always will win. 😉

  • The Astronomical Clock (Prague, Czech Republic)

    The Astronomical Clock (Prague, Czech Republic)

    I was recently in Prague and there was one touristy thing I have wanted to see there for some time now. That being the astronomical clock or the Prague Orloj. It’s an absurd feat of time-keeping engineering. It is even more impressive when you think about the fact that the clock is over 600 years […]

  • Be Cool, Do Crime (Berlin, Germany)

    Be Cool, Do Crime (Berlin, Germany)

    Berlin is a wonderful city with a rich history and an absolute shit-ton of graffiti. It doesn’t really matter what part of town you’re in, it’s everywhere. I find that charming and tried to document some of it on a recent visit.

  • Edvard Munch’s Gravesite (Oslo, Norway)

    Edvard Munch’s Gravesite (Oslo, Norway)

    For some reason in Norway UPS doesn’t always bring your package to your doorstep. Instead, they drop it off at some random store (usually across town) to be picked up. Sorta defeats the purpose of shopping online in my opinion. If I wanted to leave my hermit hole or deal with people I would just […]

  • Remnants of War and Old Towns (Tallinn, Estonia)

    Remnants of War and Old Towns (Tallinn, Estonia)

    I’ve been to Estonia a dozen or so times. However, this trip felt a bit more poignant with everything going on in Ukraine. Estonia if you don’t know has been invaded by Russia (and other nations) several times.  Despite all of that, Estonia is a small but strong nation and the Estonians themselves are such […]

  • Windmark Sculpture – Quail Lake Park – (Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA)

    Windmark Sculpture – Quail Lake Park – (Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA)

    On top of a hill around Quail Lake, you’ll see a large and what I thought was a brutalist sculpture. I found that it had several very interesting and dynamic angles to look at. Dynamic because even with a small push the entire sculpture gracefully moves and swings. Even a small breeze can give it […]

  • ‘Doc’ Holiday Gravesite (Glenwood Springs, Colorado, USA)

    ‘Doc’ Holiday Gravesite (Glenwood Springs, Colorado, USA)

    If you have seen the movie Tombstone then you likely know who Doc Holiday was. For those who have not, basically, he’s a badass American cowboy, gambler, and gunslinger. I visited his gravesite and dragged my kids along to pay our respects. His grave sits on top of a mountain so there’s a small hike […]

  • De Kas Restaurant (Amsterdam, Netherlands)

    De Kas Restaurant (Amsterdam, Netherlands)

    I love a fixed menu because I don’t have to think about what to order. They just bring you lots of unique dishes and combinations you might never otherwise think of. A great example of this is the De Kas greenhouse restaurant where the majority of what you eat is grown on the same property […]
