We took a road trip through the south to visit friends. You can see all the pictures here. We had a good time and really enjoyed meeting N.R. and his family and visiting with Ian and Ingrid and meeting their daughters.
We traveled 4500 miles and tried to stop for a lot of roadside attractions. I wish that we could have spent more time with N.R. and Ingrid, but two weeks was already a long time to be on the road.

William and I went to San Carlos. It was a very good trip. Very relaxing and peaceful there. There was a neighbor cat that was super friendly, we found a couple new good restaruants, and we lived without running water for a couple of days.
We took a trip to Las Vegas with a friend to see the Star Trek convention. It was the 45th Anniversary and Leonard Nimoy’s last appearance. We also rented a car and went to the Hoover Dam and took the tour. We also went to an “Ice Bar” called Minus 5. The room was mostly made of ice and kept at -5 degrees C. They gave us coats and gloves when we went in. And the drink glasses were made of ice. The full set of pictures is here.
We took a trip with William’s parents to Niagara Falls. Along with way, we stopped at lots of “Roadside Attractions”. The full set of pictures can be found here.
My favorites are the Sleeping Giant:
Hartman’s Rock Garden:
We went to Portugal and Spain with my parents, brother and his girlfriend. Check out the pictures.
