Feeling flush for no good reason

My company sent me to the US on a video shoot in March, but it took me until today to get around to filing my expense report for the trip. Between the multiple nights in the hotel in Anaheim, California, and the numerous cab rides to and from two major airports, it worked out to …

Is it security theater? Or is it Italy?

I recently returned from 5 days in northern Italy … one of those very rare occasions when I was able to combine a business trip with a bit of leisure due to my Swede being up against a “use it or lose it” deadline on some vacation days. Mix in fact that the weather was still …

We had a lovely long weekend in London with our friends Chaundra and Drake, who were wonderful hosts, as usual. They have a knack for introducing us to new things, and this time they scored a daily-double.

And no, the semi-matching watches are NOT on purpose.  😉  Dr. Darling’s Suunto was a gift from her family upon earning her Ph.D. Mine is a solar-powered Casio because I’m too lazy to wind a watch or change its batteries.   Train-riding stance …

And the carb-fest continues in Sweden’s capital!

My brother, for all his many visits with us here in Sweden, had never been to Stockholm. So we fixed that on this trip … though somewhat at the “last-minute” because although we offered it up early in the itinerary planning process (as we do every time he comes over) … he declined, saying he …

Just got my butt kicked in a beautiful place

Dr. Darling and I are back from our much anticipated first-ever road-trip with our friends Sophie & Matilda (AKA “the Sonic Youth”). We share a lot of similar interests and they are just plain fun to be with … so we kind of figured that traveling with them had the potential to be all kinds of win. On …
