     With my classmates at DLI in Monterey, California. I think we burned some old pallets. The wind is kind of cold of the ocean there, but it was still fun. Be careful about burying hot coals in the sand when you're done- the sand...

     Motorcycle is a great way to cross it, but I recommend walking across. The views are fantastic. Bring a camera, start at the south end. There's plenty of parking down the hill a ways. Fort Point is cool too if it's open.

    Don't ask. I suck at bowling, even though I've gone several times throughout my life. It's a good excuse to drink beer though.

    We did this to celebrate my father-in-law's 70th birthday. My wife jumped with her dad, I jumped with my sister-in-law. I think the business was Sky-Dive Santa Rosa (in California). The srangest part was just after we'd left the ...

     I suggest using Singapore as a home base. If so, be careful to have your papers in proper order so you can get back into Singapore (I almost didn't!). I was in Singapore on business and twice that year (2012?) rode motorcycles ...

     While teaching a class in Darmstadt, I flew to visit friends in Berlin for the weekend. They took me to the Berlin Wall and several other places. I highly recommend you try currywurst and Berlinerweiss too. Look for the bullet hole...

     Visited while teaching a class in Beijing. Weekends are crowded at major tourist spots such as Badaling. Go somewhere more remote if you can, or at least on a weekday morning. My great thanks to my friend Tao Xu for playing tour gu...

    We happened across this while on a beach near Nuevo Vallarta in Mexico. They have a conservation project near the resorts there. That makes it easy to participate. We actually had the opportunity to hold the little turtles before their d...

     No trick at all, was on a business trip teaching a class in Paris and had my wife join me for the second week. 1st class was last week of April, 2nd class started May 2nd (a Wednesday), so everybody took Monday as a bridge holiday ...

    With friends on a business trip. Pose with the statues for photos, it's irreverent but funny, especially with friends like mine. The Mona Lisa pic is somewhere, can't find it right now.

     Went in 2001 when my daughter was 9 months old. It's amazingly beautiful, and eventually we realized the futility of photography to capture it (Do take pictures anyway, but it can't capture the sensation). The Hurtigruten l...

     If you want to do this, start with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (or your state's equivalent) course. It will be easier to pass the test, you'll have more confidence and use the program's motorcycle, and probably hav...
