China Itinerary – April 15, 2009 to May 21, 2009

This itinerary was actually the latter half of a two-country, nearly two-month trip encompassing China and Japan. In this itinerary write-up, we’re only focusing on Japan since this leg of the trip could easily stand out on its own Japan separate from China…

Oregon Bad Weather Itinerary – March 27, 2009 to April 4, 2009

This itinerary focused on spending a week in the state of Oregon. The main purpose of this trip was to sample the plethora of waterfalls that were here – both within the famous Columbia River Gorge as well as outside the waterfall-rich area…

Sedona Itinerary – March 12, 2009 to March 15, 2009

This itinerary covered our long overdue visit to Sedona as an extended weekend. My ulterior motive of basing ourselves in Sedona was to finally visit the Grand Falls. Aside from this waterfall, everything else was just icing on the cake…

Santa Barbara and Solvang Itinerary – February 13, 2009 to February 14, 2009

This was a very brief Valentine’s Day weekend overnight trip to Santa Barbara. This city has long been like a little weekend getaway spot for us, but tried to capitalize on the fact that we were in the middle of California’s historically rainiest month…

Thailand and Cambodia Itinerary – December 19, 2008 to January 9, 2009

This itinerary covered a three-week trip to Thailand as well as a few days in Cambodia. I’ve opted to combine this into a single itinerary since it’s reasonable to assume that many visitors to Cambodia will only do it as an add-on to a Thailand trip as we had done…

St Lucia Itinerary – November 26, 2008 to December 1, 2008

This itinerary covered our visit to St Lucia over the Thanksgiving Weekend. Due to the national holiday, we only needed to take one day off work, and it turned out that the short Thanksgiving week was not a bad time to travel abroad…

Kaieteur Falls Itinerary – August 30, 2008 to September 1, 2008

This itinerary of our visit to Kaieteur Falls was probably our craziest far-flung trip to date. We basically crammed a trip to Guyana (on the northern part of South America) into the long Labor Day Weekend with no work days taken off…

Peru Itinerary – April 18, 2008 to April 28, 2008

This trip pertains to a quick fully escorted trip to Peru. It not only included the typical Cusco-Machu Picchu itinerary (i.e. the so-called “Gringo Trail”), but we also spent the majority of our time in the Amazonas Region of Northern Peru…

Big Island Redo Weekend Itinerary – February 21, 2008 to February 25, 2008

This itinerary pertained to a dedicated Big Island weekend trip. We waimed to visit the remaining waterfalls (or at least see them flowing) that we either missed or didn’t have a good experience for in our previous visits…

Julian Trip Itinerary – February 13, 2008 to February 14, 2008

This was a very brief overnight trip to Julian in celebration of Valentine’s Day. While one normally associates this day with romance (or heartbreak, depending on your situation), Julie and I remembered this trip in terms of hiking and driving under a freak snow storm…

Big Island Weekend Itinerary – January 31, 2008 to February 3, 2008

Julie and I remembered this Big Island Trip well because it was one in which bad weather pretty much kept us from accomplishing any of the goals that we had set out to do. What happened was that unprecedented heavy rains (from Climate Change?)…

Patagonia Itinerary – December 18, 2007 to December 31, 2007

This itinerary covers our visit to Patagonia from both the Argentina as well as Chile sides. Included in this two-week trip were a few days spent in Buenos Aires (the capital of Argentina) as well as a fruitful layover in Miami’s South Beach…

Angel Falls Itinerary – November 18, 2007 to November 24, 2007

This itinerary of our visit to Angel Falls pretty much revolved around an organized tour that would allow us to access the remote waterfall. It took the entire week of Thanksgiving, but I’m still kicking myself for not taking a few extra days…
