Assisi

We managed to get up, showered and to breakfast so we could be moving out at 9:30A (this is quite a trick for Aviva, she’s not a morning person). We stopped in Chiesa Nuova first – its right by our hotel room. Then we went shopping. While walking through the Piazza de Comune in the […]

From Roma to Assisi

We woke up to the alarm at 7A (Aviva didn’t sleep through the night but I made it most of the way). We ate, showered, checked out of the hotel and grabbed a cab to the rental agency. And we had another crazy ride right across Rome! We got to the car rental place and […]

One day in Roma

We had a two hour layover in Amsterdam, so we went on a hunt for Shiseido under-eye cream – we found it in a perfume store in the airport (Schipol is an amazing shopping experience for an airport). We arrived on time in Rome; I waited at baggage carousel 10 for over 1/2 hour before […]

Arrival in Roma

I’m really looking forward to this vacation – work has been hard recently (but also rewarding to me) and taking a break now is a good thing I think. As usual, I’m bringing some books along, as I love to read while on vacation: Angels & Demons A Portrait of the Artist as a Young […]

New York City, May 14 – 18, 2003

We had to sit on our flight on the ground in Chicago for a while, and the flight was bumpy, but we managed to get off the plane at LaGuardia. We discovered that LaGuardia isn't a food mecca at 9P at night – all that was open was a Wendy's. After eating, we cabbed into […]

Palm Desert

We spent a wonderful warm time in Palm Desert visiting Aviva’s mother and her friend Dave. We did a lot of things (in addition to laying out in the morning sun). We went to the Palm Springs Desert Museum; they have a number of Morris Grave’s images which Aviva really likes. They also have a […]

Amsterdam

Our meeting on UML and Service-Oriented Environments on December 12 went very well. That night I went out for walk and a pizza and some welcome quiet time (I am an INTJ after all). December 13th was my shopping day in Amsterdam! I found everything I was looking for in one frenzied 4 hour walking […]

Meetings in Utrecht

December 10th was the first day of the Architecture Days conference. We began with registration, including digital photos of all the participants. It was nice to see old collegues. Dan began the conference with a short, energetic presentation on why software development projects fail – we don’t control expectations. Next up was a short report […]

Haarlem

We took a train to The Hague and changed to Haarlem. We went straight to the heart of town and walked around and photographed the cathederal. A woman approached me to let me know that they had a postcard of one of the details I was trying to photograph. A detail from the city hall […]

Arrival in Utrecht

I got to the airport early and got an aisle seat, which is important for tallish people like me. Mike was at the gate when I got there – Gary and Tad arrived a little later. I had to correct my little tour destination for Monday- I hoped to go to The Hague for Vermeers. […]
