lunch at Citrus in Chapel Hill

Eric was having a particularly rough Monday this week, so we decided to try this new place, Citrus, in Southern Village for lunch. It's tucked away among the townhouses, so you'll have to look for it, but it's worth the extra effort. I got the Italian Sausage sandwich...

a day in Charleston, SC

This past weekend we were invited to South Carolina by some friends of ours. We stayed with Trish's mom in a posh little apartment above the garage in Summerville, SC. They fed us dinner on Friday night and breakfast on Saturday and Sunday morning, how generous! We...

Charleston for the weekend

We are in Charleston, SC, with friends for the weekend - today we roamed around downtown checking out the architecture and gardens, and tried some of the local beer. Tomorrow we are thinking about some of the plantations and possibly the beach. Should be fun...

my new business site

A funny travel link

We're suckers for silly signs, and a recent post on the travel blog Gadline had a great roundup of 10 hilarious bathroom signs.

Corks for Kids!

dinner at 18 Seaboard in Raleigh

Last night we met some friends for a lovely dinner at 18 Seaboard in downtown Raleigh. We discovered this restaurant when we ate next door at J. Betski's for my birthday dinner, and when Eric noticed they had a flat-iron steak on the menu, we were sold. I'm glad I...

Eric and Leandra in Orient Point, NY :)

Hello! This website chronicles the travel adventures of a computational biologist and a WordPress website developer (with past entries of our 😇 rescued mini schnauzers, Riesling and Pasha).

We’ve steadily increased our travel over the last several years and that is the focus of our blog currently, but you can read older ‘daily life‘ and ‘canine‘ posts by clicking on those links.
