Too bad we’re not skiing


Dr. Darling and I are heading to the Swiss Alps tomorrow for a highly anticipated long “Training Weekend” organized by Coach Bad-@$$. “Highly anticipated” because #1) it’s the first time we’ve ever road-tripped with the globe-trotting Sonic Youth (AKA Sophie & Mrs. Coach Bad-@$$, Matilda), something we have long wanted to do, B) it’s going …

Hiking the Jämtland Triangle


The Swede and I did something different for our summer adventure this year. Instead of a bike tour, we decided to hike the Jämtland Triangle, a series of trails in the moors of the Jämtland mountains. This has been a “Bucket List” item for Dr. Darling and something I was game to try, so we chose this …

Safari photos are up!


Thanks to Dr. Darling‘s slavish dedication over the past three days, the majority of the photos from our Tanzania trip are now up on Flickr. You can go directly to the photo set by clicking here. I recommend using the side-show option if you have the time and interest (there are just over 500 images …
