Personal posts that are usually lament some aspect of life and those around me.
Funny, isn’t it, that there are certain places that make you feel more compelled to write than others. I just realized the only other time I’ve blogged away from home recently was again in Ireland. It’s sad, really, how little I’ve written in the past few months. Work has somewhat taken over my life. And […]
As I wait for my Ryanair flight to roll out of Dublin’s airport, I have many reasons to want to come back. While the first two days of my time in Dublin were spent working deep within the walls of Google’s Dublin offices, I made sure to give myself ample time on the weekend to […]
I’ve decided to spend the summer here in Switzerland with a bit of an organized regimen, and this time it’s going to be tackling mountains around Switzerland. Today, I made my way to Mt. Rigi, in the canton of Schwyz. Altitude: 1,798 m Weather: No clouds but slightly hazy Path to get there: Zurich HB […]
I’ve been in a sort of “consume media” mode for the past week, so it’s high time I switch gears and start doing something productive.

As any fledgling camera addict would probably know, there comes a point in the whole camera-owning business where buying a couple of lens becomes a fun (and possibly […]
As it so happens it takes about a month for me to have the time to shift gears between one thing and the next, and as such it’s high time for me to put down to pixel the kinds of amazing adventures I’ve been able to have this past summer. I started my internship at […]
Sometimes it takes a couple of bubble teas and a week’s worth of rest to be able to muse over a weekend of pure awesomeness. Back in early August I decided on a whim to participate in the Eagle Cycling Club’s Tour of Napa Valley as a group of IDEOers would be headed to it […]
