2016 South America Trip – Rio de Janeiro

To be honest, I was never that really interested in going to Rio or anywhere in Brazil. Sure, Angela and I had taken a few years of Portuguese classes, but that was because our boss was afraid the Portuguese teacher would leave, so he made all of us English teachers learn the basics of the language in case she left. But I'd already been to a Portuguese speaking country (Portugal), as well as other South American countries whose cultural interests I thought were more in line with my own. I Read more [...]

2016 South America Trip – Argentina

Here are a few more pictures and anecdotes from the Argentina leg of our recent trip to South America. If you're looking for good pictures, though, then you should check out Paul's pictures from the trip. He also went to many more places than we did, and he is a much better photographer. So check out his Flickr albums here. Then when you're done, you can come back to see my Argentina pictures. Although I should really say the "Buenos Aires" leg of that trip, since that's the only part of Argentina Read more [...]

2016 South America Trip – Uruguay

Last month we took a two-week trip to South America. When taking a trip like this back in the day, I'd usually write up some kind of short stories or at least upload some cool pictures, but the truth is I'm a bit rusty with this whole blogging thing. I've been writing quite a few posts for FluentU, but that's a whole different thing, and I've definitely gotten out of the habit of blogging as it relates to my personal life and traveling. In any case, we've barely traveled in the nearly two years Read more [...]

2014 Pictures of the Day

Well, it's a new year, but I've yet to post anything. That's fine, though. It's been a busy 2015, especially January. I'm still keeping on keeping on with the Pictures of the Day, though! I've finally uploaded all the rest of them from December of 2014, which you can see here. And here's a slideshow of them: Also, that means I've finished out last year. If you want to relive the year through my eyes, have a look here or at this slideshow (I'll give you a preview: near the end of March, Read more [...]

Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to say Merry Christmas to everyone! I suppose that's somewhat appropriate since my last post was a Halloween post--maybe I can just make this a holiday blog? In any case, I've been busy. We're in Colorado visiting my family. Today our polar baby got to see his first snow: That's him, getting ready for the snow. He's also been able to play with the family. I'll get more pictures up when all the Pictures of the Day for the year are done, but for now, you can see one of him going for Read more [...]

Happy Halloween!

I took a few family pictures tonight for Halloween. Will was a Cute Ghost (and if pressed to guess, I'd say that just may be his Halloween costume for 2015 and/or 2016, also), Angela was a "vampire" (I think), and once again I was Brian Fitzman, my arch-nemesis and evil twin. I thought I'd share them with you. Thanks for reading, and Happy Halloween! Read more [...]
