On Monday afternoon, coming into Ísafjörður, I was pulled over for speeding — my first time ever, surprisingly. Naturally, I decided to contest it. The way to Ísafjörður from Hellnar is a gnarly three hour gravel road. Before hitting town, you’ll drive through a long (~10 km) tunnel with a 60 km/h speed limit. After the […]
Dealing With Baby Jet-Lag. Not so much the same as this. It just took a few nights of adjustment.
Enjoying the scene and a Swiss mocha after the hike from Hellnar to Arnarstapi and back. Bobo is quite the happy traveler. We’re staying at Hotel Hellnar, near the end of the Snaelfellsnes Peninsula, for three nights before taking the ferry to Flatey and driving on to Ísafjörður. Our hiking is dependent on the weather. […]
Classic "all’s well that ends well story." Last night, Bobo took, oh, about five hours to be put to sleep. For this reason and that, she just would not go down. And, to make matters worse, she knew she was tired — so she cried and cried and cried. Putting her in the Ergo finally […]
Old Reykjavik towards the harbor from the tower of Hallgrimskirkja church. Doing a bit of sightseeing after sleeping in until 10 am. Bobo took the flights over like a champ; for Leah, it was a bit more rough but last night was a good ketchup. Dong, dong, dong… church bells in the tower strike one. […]
Leah, Ava and I are off on a grand adventure to Iceland tomorrow for 14 days. Put particular emphasis on adventure, because I’m writing this as Ava is screaming in her Ergo and won’t take a nap. We’re preparing for the worst and hoping for the best. After we arrive Monday morning, we spend three […]
Off to Philly for BCNI. It’s been a couple of years, and I’m looking forward to seeing the crew again.
PDX -> JFK -> PDX -> AMS -> OSL -> LHR -> LIS -> AMS -> SEA -> PDX.
Off to Utah for three days of shredding gnar gnar sicky pow pow with Miles, Albert, and Joe. Last weekend left me pessimistic about the snow coverage, but it looks like the weather gods are smiling upon us kindly. Almost a foot in the last day, and more to come. Joe will be in Portland […]
Wonderful, restorative long weekend in Victoria with Leah and her grandparents. Highlights: Saturday salon, lots of sleeping, morning walks to Moka Coffee, bananagrams, reading on the beach, and watching (almost) the first season of Breaking Bad. Spent a long time thinking about my role in the WordPress community too. Wrote a pretty angsty post this […]
