Spent a beautiful weekend on Catalina Island hiking, touring and relaxing. Just an hour boat ride from Los Angeles, it’s the perfect getaway from the city.
I heard the spring light whisper
Above the dancing stream,
“The world is made forever
In likeness of a dream.”

A while back, I spent a weekend in Texas, at our friend’s wonderful lakehouse about an hour outside of Austin. We spent a day in Austin, which is a great city, and then relaxed by the lake for the rest of the weekend. Texas is a colorful, interesting and slightly exotic place to me, and I really enjoyed it. Here are some photos:
As I continue my attempt to travel around the entire world, I went to Costa Rica last weekend for a wedding. We stayed at the Paradisus Playa Conchal near Liberia. It’s a beautiful all-inclusive resort right on the beach. My kind of place. I spent a day zip-lining, horse back riding and going to natural hot springs, which was probably one of the best adventures ever. It’s a beautiful country. I hope to make it back there someday.
I’ve been MIA for almost three weeks, traveling through Taipei, Jakarta and Bali. My next several entries will have to do with all that, but here are some photos to start things off!

Went on a walk in the neighborhood to try out the camera. Here’s some photos….
