The blog has suffered from even more neglect over the past year or two, but I’m determined to start being more diligent!  For the time being I’ll capture the travels I’ve done from the last post until now, so at least I have it documented: Australia: Business trip to the Gold Coast and Melbourne, Read More

So much for promises!  I sadly STILL haven’t updated this site since I last promised it waaaaay back in April 2009.  I’ll blame it on the fact I’ve been a busy boy (as always), but I have to admit that I’ve become more likely to post photos on Facebook than here.  I’ve now set things up, Read More

This was the highlight of my trip to Belize!  The Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) cave is a river cave that was used by the Mayans centuries ago for human sacrifices and other ceremonies and rituals.  The government has limited the number of companies that can conduct the tour in order to preserve the site, Read More

For my second and final Spring Break of business school I organized to go to Belize with a bunch of friends from Berkeley – Neal Kohl, Josh Moreen, Ayako Tanaka, Tara Davis and KJ Yoo.  Neal and I flew down together as the advance party, and the others joined us over the following few, Read More

I left Alex and Laura in Antigua and flew down to Nicaragua to catch up with Jolien.  I flew into the capital Managua and caught a bus down to the old town of Granada. I’d describe Granada as "having potential" – it’s like a run-down Antigua, with some beautiful colonial-style buildings, restaurants and hotels. , Read More
