Travel Index

International Travel

Canada

  • Montréal: Twenty-four hours in Québec, with a pit stop at Ben & Jerry’s HQ.
  • Squamish and Vancouver: In my recap of the highs and lows of our first seven months in Seattle, these first two ventures into British Columbia were certainly among the highs.

Croatia

An early-September week in Split, with day trips to Brela Beach, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the island of Hvar, and the waterfalls of Krka National Park. Plus, a bit of pre- and post-vacation musing.

France

Photo-walks through the Marais, the Rue des Rosiers, and Montmartre; and Paris at its most classic.

Spain

An amazing hike at Montserrat; equally breathtaking indoor scenery at the Sagrada Família; and walks with a friend around Barcelona.

Domestic Travel

California

Family, friends, and those ubiquitous Kardashians in Los Angeles.

Colorado

A backpacking trip through the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness; milking goats and searching for UFOs in Buena Vista and Hooper; and a spectacular walk through Great Sand Dunes National Park.

Illinois

Kentucky

A long weekend spent winding through the Red River Gorge, Lexington and Louisville.

Maine

Maryland

Unexpected Turkish delights, and fun with midshipmen, in Annapolis.

Michigan

New York

  • Brooklyn: Distance running on Coney Island, Israeli brunch, and more outdoor space than I thought existed in NYC.
  • Northville: A holiday-season getaway to the Adirondacks.

North Carolina

Strawberry-picking (and a whole lot more!) with a wonderful friend in Raleigh-Durham.

Oregon

This road trip around the state covered lots of ground: a family reunion in Portland; waterfall and desert hikes; a love affair with trail running in Bend; a chilly visit to Crater Lake; and the scenic route back up the Oregon Coast.

South Carolina

A post-election, pre-birthday trip to Charleston.

Texas

A spontaneous long weekend in Austin, full of barbecue, bats, and breakfast tacos.

Virginia

Washington

West Virginia

An artillery demonstration, lots of uphill hiking, and Halloween at Harper’s Ferry.

Wisconsin

  • Milwaukee: A beer-themed jaunt via Amtrak to ring in 2016.
  • Willoway Farm: An off-the-beaten-path camping trip, plus bunnies.
