A California [Mostly Work] Adventure

Why do I even bother writing these, you ask? Because one day I still have the hope that I’ll have time to write one of my real humor posts down on here. Until then, I’m in California working and having some hiking and food adventures. Heavy on the food part.

Greetings from Romania, all! I’m here on a press trip with Sano Touring, an NGO-directed tourism company that leads wheelchair-accessible tours throughout the country. From the north to Transylvania and Bucharest, Sano Touring focuses on sites with ramps, lifts (or elevators, as us non-Europeans call it), or flat, paved paths. It all started with a road trip from the UK with my friend Anthony…and, well, as soon as some blog posts are out I’ll share some. In the meantime, here’s what Romania looks like!


Life in Hawaii, part…3?

Why do I still bother with writing a monthly post at all, you ask? It’s because I have dozens of notes just waiting to be written into real travel stories, and I hope that one day I’ll actually write a decent post. “But the posts you wrote before weren’t decent either, Coop.” Well, thanks for telling me. I appreciate the boost.

In other news, working and traveling around Hawaii again was indeed awesome.
