Simon Fraser campus : Vancouver

Last year I came in to Vancouver to attend a professional event taking place during the summer. I made a very late decision to come, and so the hotels were running insane rates with very low availability. To my relief, a former-classmate friend who is now working at Simon Fraser invited me to come stay […]

Stanley Park - Vancouver Canada-022

Last year I was in Vancouver for a conference, and had a day to explore around a bit. The conference was taking place at the large conference center next to the Vancouver Harbour and so I set out to walk west from the conference center towards Stanley Park. The park was quite lovely, with lots of green and little […]

To wrap up my visit to Phoenix during Christmas, I made a short visit to the University of Arizona in Phoenix. To catch a last glimpse of the city from above, I took the opportunity to climb up the nearby mountain and the Hayden Butte Preserve with panoramic views of the whole area. It’s a bit of a hike, […]

Wall street NYC New York (7)

I’ve been to New York City so many times, but somehow never really got around to taking shots of the famous Wall Street. Back in my 6th grade year in the US I remember coming out of the metro on Wall Street and for the first time in my life seeing the endless row of […]

Vancouver Harbour Canada (23)

  Last summer I had the pleasure of stopping over in Vancouver for a few days to see some of my former colleagues who were attending a conference. The conference was downtown in the conference center area, which is situated right next to the gorgeous Victoria harbour.  So, I had plenty of opportunities to roam […]

Capitol building Topeka Kansas

I collect visits to capitol buildings across the US.  Florida, Illinois, Washington DC, Austin, Harrisburg, and Phoenix Arizona are some of the more recent ones. In one of my time-traveling trips back to the year I spent in Topeka middle-of-nowhere Kansas, I took the opportunity to also visit the local Kansas capitol building, one more […]

Combat Air Museum Topeka Kansas (2)

Last year, I did a trip back in time to revisit Topeka Kansas, where I spent an exchange year back in 1989. I found my old house, and had a few other adventures, but then wanted to go and explore some of the local attractions. I can’t say that I found a lot, but one […]

Chevrolet Museum Hall of Fame Museum Decatour Illinois-030

As I was making my way west from Urbana-Champaign towards a visit into the past in Topeka Kansas, I decided to make a quick stop in Decatour. As I was going off the highway I saw a sign leading to the Chevrolet Museum Hall of Fame Museum. That sounded interesting, so I decided to go have […]

Philadelphia downtown walking tour (2)

Last year I had my first visit to Philadelphia, to see the UPenn campus and tour the city a bit after a conference in NYC and a stop at the Princeton University campus. I did plenty of walking around Philadelphia during that visit, roaming around downtown and trying to see as much as I can during that […]

28 Feb, 2016 in Phoenix
War memorial and capitol building Pheonix-018

I collect capitol buildings, or maybe – visits to capitol buildings across the US. I mean, I try. Whenever I visit a capital city in a new state I try to fit it to my schedule to go and take a look at the capitol building. Florida, Illinois, Washington DC, Austin, and Harrisburg, are some of the […]
