My Introduction to an ND Filter

The Neutral Density (ND) filter was something I’d always heard about but didn’t really understand why I would need one considering software can apply filters in post-processing. It wasn’t until a recent trip to Hawaii which I really put the ND filter to use. I did some research and realized if I wanted those soft […]

Breckenridge

what happens when you get 15 people in one house for one week to go snowboarding at Breckenridge? unfortunately, this is not a rant on cramming people into a house, there was no Real World-type drama, but rather an awesome awesome trip with a ton of new friends!

6 years

6 years ago, we visited Mont Tremblant in Quebec, CA on a spring break trip made for college kids. it was definitely an experience – we rode the 12+ hours in the Jack Daniels tour bus, the conditions were mostly wet, and we learned quickly that we were easily the oldest ones in the club/bar […]

Tremblant: Revisited

6 years ago, my two friends and I went on a spring break trip to Mont Tremblant to snowboard for a week. there were a few things we learned really quick about this ski town located 2 hours outside Montreal: (1) ski town food is really expensive and (2) the Canadian drinking age is 18 […]

How Ready am I?

the recent japan earthquake got me thinking about how prepared I would be right now if we had a natural disaster and I had a limited amount of time to pack things and go. With the hobbies and activities I do, I’ve accumulated a lot of things to satisfy the basics if for some reason […]

Taipei Subway

On a recent trip to Taiwan, I was introduced to the Taipei MRT subway system. My “home” station was the Jiantan station, located across the street from the famous Shilin Night Market. This station was shaped like a boat, and as I would learn later, all the outdoor stations all had unique designs.

Packing: the Suit Burrito

I may have revolutionized packing without using a traditional semi-hard wheelie suitcase. mostly because I don’t own a wheelie case (except my snowboard bag), but the situation is I was packing for a wedding and vacation for two weeks in taiwan and my travel bag was my gregory palisade 80.

DC as an Emerging Food Destination?

I just came across this article where WaPo reports DC is being looked at by NY restaurateurs as a good area to expand, citing the stable economy and cheaper leases.  I and definitely a fan of this, as it should make our 2-3 year food trend gap a little shorter as restaurants look to DC […]
