Europe So Far…

Europe So Far…

 Hello again, been a while! We’ve been living in Germany now since the end of March and have been in our home since the end of May. That’s two months living out of suitcases and almost two months setting up our house…throw in a personal transition from Aperture to Light Room for photo management and...
Mt. Nyukasa... a journey through the clouds

Mt. Nyukasa… a journey through the clouds

A little over a week ago, I went with my friend, Kelly, and a small tour group to Mt Nyukasa aka Fujimi Panorama. The Panorama promised was not in the cards, however, as the temperature was slightly low and the humidity slightly high resulting in lovely, low clouds. When we rolled up to the base...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the setting and above all, the people who pampered us. We were treated like royalty and ate better than I have at any point in my life. Our dinners ranged from shabu-shabu...
Guam Sunset

Guam Sunset

Recently, I had the pleasure of spending a week and a half in Guam while my lovely wife Toni was passing through on business. It’s kinda funny to fly from Japan to an American Territory and find the two very similar in lots of ways. In Tumon Bay where we stayed, the scenery was that...
