A Day “In Town” – Jackson, WY

Bondurant, Wy is a small community (population 100), about 50 miles south of Jackson.   It has 1 church,  1 bar,  1 guest ranch, a k – 4 school with 7 students,  and the ranch of my best friend’s parents. We traveled to Bondurant for the baptism of my god daughter.  The day before, we started…

My “Me-Time” Vacation

I really wasn’t expecting it to be this way, it was supposed to be a normal New Jersey trip, filled with too many people to see, and the kids out of their element and clinging to me.  But as luck would have it, a few things worked in my favor this time around.  The main…

A Night in the North End

After three hard days of non stop meetings, difficult presentations, and an all day training, I was ready for a break.  So when a co worker also visiting Boston from San Francisco suggested we go to dinner I was more than willing.   My fellow colleagues from San Francisco were not as familiar with Boston (not…

A Day in our Buenos Aires Life

We have been in the country a week now and have settled into a nice routine. I thought it would be nice to give you an idea of what our daily routine is looking like, on our leisurely vacation. (all times are approximate, true to this vacation style, we don’t stick to a strict schedule)…

Jaipur Adventures: Nahargarh Fort

On our final morning in Jaipur we went up the 15 km drive of death again to see the final fort in the Jaipur area, Nahargarh Fort. While it was originally a fort, what’s of interest and on public display right now are the palace apartments. Built in a mix of British and traditional Rajasthani…

Jaipur Adventures: Jantar Mantar

Jai Singh II, a maharaja of Jaipur, loved astrology so much, he built one of the most amazing collections of sun dials and astrological instruments of his time. It’s well preserved and open to the public, so we went in to check it out on our fourth morning in Jaipur. Having seen pictures of the…

Jaipur Adventures: Jaigarh Fort

The next day in Jaipur, renewed after a good night sleep (thank you E) we headed off to Jaigarh Fort. 15 K outside the city up a windy hilly road, where at times you feel like your life may be in your driver’s hands, Jaigarh Fort is one of the less visited forts. Known primarily…
