Last month I traveled to Cape Town for work. It was a pretty quick meetup, just 4 full days, but we were able to fit in a tour of the wine country outside the city. Really beautiful land paired with fantastic food. See the full gallery →
A couple weeks back Leah and I took a week-long vacation to Kauai. We stayed in this great VRBO rental that really is as close to the ocean as the pictures make it appear.
We ate a lot of good food, went on some fun hikes (though no Kalalau trail this trip), and took a half-day boat tour up to the northern coast. The free first-class bump on the flight over didn’t hurt, either. See the rest of the photos…
A couple days back some co-workers and I took the gondola up the mountain for a short hike. The gondola itself is a pretty great ride. Takes about 10 minutes and you get some fantastic views on the way down.
From there we did a short trail up to what the resort calls Alpine Lake. Lake might be a bit of an overstatement but it was still beautiful up there.
Most of the hike was through aspen trees. The white bark with greenery all around it is a neat effect.
