In April of this year I went on a road trip with my brother-in-law, John. Our
ultimate destination was Moab, Utah.
I left from South Florida and stopped in Tallahassee, FL and Lake Charles, LA
before picking up John in Dallas, TX. We drove to Amarillo, TX, then followed
Route 66 to Albequerque, NM. It was a bit of a gloomy day, but we had a lot of
time so we stopped along the way to see sights of a time past.
After a long train ride from Bilbao (that we almost missed due to a 5am
taxi not arriving) I arrived in Barcelona. I mostly only went to Sagrada Família
before leaving for Madrid.
After San Sebastian I took a bus down to Bilbao.
After a long train journey from France, I arrived in San Sebastian, Spain.
I spent a few days in Basque country, enjoying the beach and tapas.
To split up the trip between Nice and San Sebastian, Spain, I stopped in
Toulouse for a couple of days. It’s a lovely quiet city and I ate the most
delicious dark chocolate I’ve ever had.
My second visit to France was more pleasant than the first. After
saying goodbye to Italy I met back up with my friend Nicole on our way
to Spain. We took a day trip to Monaco after arriving in Nice, then
explored around the French Riviera for a few days.
February was a short but full month. I went to Disney (again, for Moonlight
Magic, with my Sister and some friends.) I also joined my sister on a wedding
photo shoot at the Jupiter Civic Center to provide aerial footage, which was the
first time I used my drone for something other than fun.
Monaco is a short train ride from Nice, France, which was my destination after
being in Italy for a couple of weeks. I was there for a day trip and visited
Jardine Exotique de Monaco, Casino de Monte Carlo, Port Hercule, and walked
around near the Oceanographic Museum.
I went to Europe for 4 months in 2018 as part of my year off. While I was
there I shot a bunch of pictures and videos, the latter of which I’m
finally going through. My summary of the whole trip is now up on my YouTube
I made a quick stop in Manarola in the Cinque Terre (in addition to visiting
Riomaggiore.) I didn’t have much time there because a giant storm
was arriving in the evening. Everything was closing and I needed to take a
train back to where I was staying. It was still a nice place to visit for a few
