Gay May Foray, Arizona, May 2004 (Lawrence Kesteloot)
In May 2004 Jennifer and I went to stay for almost a week with our friends in Scottsdale, Arizona. It's become a yearly thing now, but this is the first story we've posted about it.

Burning Man (Lawrence Kesteloot)
We went to Burning Man in 2002. We took pictures on a disposable camera and finally developed them. Here's the story.

Santorini (Lawrence Kesteloot)

We're sorry for the very long gap in our postings. In Greece this website stopped accepting new posts, then our cross-country trip and wedding took up all our time and we lost the momentum.

I'll try to catch up slowly, starting with this write-up of beautiful Santorini.

Venice, Milan, and Rome (Lawrence Kesteloot)

We took a train to Venice, changing trains in Milan. In Milan we stepped out for two minutes to eat at McDonald's and saw the city's tallest building, where an entire floor had been destroyed by a personal plane that had crashed into it the day before. Venice is everything you imagine. In fact, it had even more canals, and lots of cute tiny streets. There was the occasional smell of sewage, which wasn't altogether bad since restaurants in those areas were cheaper. There are a lot of famous things to see in Venice, but we spent most of our time just walking around idly. We even went on a gondola ride, which immediately put us into the vacation pictures of dozens of people.

We went back to Milan to spend a day window-shoping at the world's most stylish stores. Milan was okay, more interesting than I thought it'd be. There's Leonardo Da Vinci's "The Last Supper" painted onto the wall of a church, which is pretty amazing. What's also amazing is that it survived at all, since Napoleon's troops used it for target practice, and during WWII the building was bombed, leaving only that wall standing. Other than that Milan is basically an industrial city where women look condescendingly at each other's very stylish and expensive clothes.

We've just spent three days in Rome, where we saw the Vatican, the Colosseum, Nero's underground palace, the weekly flea market, and a great private museum. I had heard that Rome was very dirty and busy, and imagined myself spending half my time in a metro or taxi getting from Roman ruin to Roman ruin, but it's actually very beautiful, definitely on our list of cities to revisit one day.

In Cinque Terre, Italy (Lawrence Kesteloot)

We're in Vernazza, a tiny tiny village in Cinque Terre, five villages on the coast of Italy. We just spent 4 hours hiking through 4 of the 5 villages and I think we're going to take the train back to the hotel, we're pooped. What an incredible hike, though! We're totally indebted to Elke Augustino for suggesting this, it's just been the best day. We're staying in nearby Levanto in a cute one-star hotel. We head for Venice tomorrow. I am so sunburned. We just passed by a house here where a woman on her balcony was chatting with hikers we'd been with for a while, and the hikers (Italians) then explained to us in French that the lady had lived in that house for 90 years! I asked to take her picture but she said no. Also on the way up to Corniglia (another of the five villages) we took a wrong turn and ended up on some road where some guy who was working in his fields stopped us and gave us a handful of fava beans, in their pod. He was the cutest.

In Aix-en-Provence (Lawrence Kesteloot)

Our friend and saviour Brad Grantham fed-ex'ed us his digital camera, and California DMV faxed me a duplicate of my driver's license, so we're up and running again. Nine days in Paris somehow melted away, and we'll post details and pictures from there later. We then took the train (200 MPH!) to Brussels where we stayed five days with my aunt, uncle, and grandmother.

We've since been driving southward through France. We stopped by Giverny, where Claude Monet lived for 50 years, and saw the pond where all the waterlillies were painted. We spent two days in the Loire valley to check out some chateaux, including the one that Tintin's Moulinsart was based on. We then headed for Le-Puy-en-Valey, a city which supposedly had amazing features created by a volcano. The features were okay, but all the stores were closed noon to 3pm for lunch (sheesh!), and the city's only internet cafe had one single computer, which was booked until 5pm.

We spent last night in Avignon, which still has a medieval wall around the old town and the famous bridge from the song can be walked on for a mere $3. We stayed in a hotel that used to be a chapel. Totally cute town. We're now in Aix-en-Provence, which has the first open and available internet cafe we've found in 5 days. This is the home town of Paul Cezanne, and you can tell by the house colors where he got his palette. We've also been stopping at antique shops, though so far we've been too chicken to buy something and ship it back home.

Robbed! (Lawrence Kesteloot)
Today in the metro of Prague I had my wallet stolen (pick-pocketed), so did my mom, and Jennifer had the camera stolen, all within about one minute. We didn't have much cash, and we cancelled our credit cards in time, but it's fairly devastating nonetheless. The biggest setback is the camera, which had all the pictures we'd taken in the last week in Paris and Prague, and will leave us cameraless for the next five weeks of our trip. We may buy a new one in Paris if we find something we like. That camera had been good to us, though, 6000 pictures in about a year and a half.

We're in Prague (Lawrence Kesteloot)
We're in an Internet cafe (the Bohemia Bagel) in Prague. What a beautiful and mysterious city. People here are proud of their history and their town, so they preserve what they have. We haven't see a McDonald's or a Starbuck's yet. (We've only seen a Pizza Hut.) The food is Germanish, not terrific but hearty. Prague is very photogenic, like Florence, so expect a lot of pictures when we return. It's cold and rainy (with occasional snow). Last night a concert band in the old town square played "I Will Survive" (and other things, such as the Czech national anthem) in front of a medieval-looking cathedral. After the concert they came down off the bandstand and played patriotic folk songs while large groups of college students jumped up and down. Prague by night is stunning. Makes you wish you could see in black and white.

Seeing the Sights in Virginia (Jennifer Alden)
We've been trying to take advantage of our time here in Washington, DC. This week, we went to the Smithsonian National Zoo, Mount Vernon (former home of George Washington), the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, and Lawrence's brother in concert. See the full story.

Back in the States! (Lawrence Kesteloot)
We came home from England in mid-December, spent Christmas in Virginia, then headed to California to find a place to get married. The parents of Tammy, the maid of honor, graciously offered to lend us their house, so we'll be having the wedding there on August 10th. Now we're back in Virginia for a few months staying at Lawrence's parents' house, then back to Europe to visit the places we didn't get to see. We'll spend a month there, return to Virginia, and drive the Subaru back to California in May. If anyone needs to have short-term Web or database work done, let us know! We have a few more trips to document (Barcelona, Stonehenge, and a cruise we took in the Mediterranean), which we hope to get to soon.

Devon, the "English Riviera" (Lawrence Kesteloot)
In July we spent a weekend in Devon, which is the south-west part of England. Too much to write here, see the story.

Trip to Florence (Lawrence Kesteloot)

We went to Florence with our friend Sue to meet up with our friends Kirk and Lisa, who were there on their honeymoon. Florence has so much art around even the ceilings of banks have frescoes. We went a bit crazy with the digital camera, taking over 300 pictures, but here are some of the good ones.

A Trip to Bath (Jennifer Alden)

A few weeks ago, we spent the day in Bath, which is about 25 minutes away from our house in Bristol. We spent some time walking down by the river Avon and the town center, but we spent most of the day at the site of the ancient Roman baths.

About 2000 years ago, the site was sacred to the Romans, who were mystified by the 1,000,000 + liters of hot mineral spring water that surface there every day. They built a temple to Sulis Minerva on the site. This stone carving of the gorgon hung over the entrance to the original temple. People would make pilgrimages from all over to bathe in the spring which was supposed to have all sorts of powerful healing properties.

Only the bottom third of the building is the original Roman structure (everything under the reddish line in this picture). The rest has been added over the years, up until the mid 1800's when it opened as a museum. The Romans built a drainage system to carry surplus spring water off tothe river Avon, a few hundred yards away. The drains still work perfectly after almost 2000 years.

Weekend in Oxford and Cambridge (Jennifer Alden)

Back at the end of May, we went to Cambridge and Oxford for the weekend, but we weren't able to post the pictures because our computer wasn't working. We've rescued the pictures (thanks Brad!) so here they are:

We went to Oxford on Saturday. The city was gorgeous, with cute old shops and beautiful architecture everywhere (this merchant's house was built in 1380 - no that's not a typo.) Oxford isn't just one school. There are actually a bunch of small colleges which are collectively known as Oxford. Probably the best known of these is Christ Church, whose halls have known the likes of Albert Einstein, Lewis Carroll and 13 British Prime Ministers. Our favorite part was the fantastic dining hall (another photo of the dining hall). It felt like being inside a Harry Potter story.

It was the weekend of "the Eights," The main rowing event at Oxford. It was beautiful weather and the students crowded the banks of the river to cheer for their individual schools.

The next day we went to Cambridge. It didn't feel as small and cozy as Oxford, but has more than its share of cute shops and neat old buildings. We climbed up the towers of St. Mary's and had a great view of King's College, where we attended a choir concert later that afternoon. We finished up our weekend with a short walk down by the river Cam, where we watched the punting boats.

On the way back to Bristol, we stopped by Potter's Bar, the home of Lawrence's great aunt Paulette. She has lived in her house since she and her late husband bought it new in the 1950's.

Madonna in Paris (Jennifer Alden)

A couple of months ago, we bought tickets for a package weekend to see Madonna perform in Paris. The package included a bus trip to and from Bristol (over 10 hours each way, but they didn't tell us that until we were on the bus), hotel accomodation for two nights and tickets to the concert.

The bus trip (besides being long) was scenic and really interesting – from Dover on the English side, we actually drove the bus onto the EuroTunnel train. Once inside the train, they parked the bus and you could get out and walk around. The actual crossing is about a half an hour, with about ten minutes of that under water.

We got there late Friday afternoon, and spent the evening wandering around Montmartre, the district of Paris most known for its artists, the beautiful Sacre Coeur, and (due to the unbelievable amount of steps you have to climb to get there) panoramic views of the city.

On Saturday, we spent most of the day at the Louvre. There are way too many treasures there to try to start describing them, but some of our favorites were the Dutch masters, the sculpture galleries and the large format French paintings.

That night we went to the concert. We had to stand in line for quite a while, but it was well worth it – Madonna did not disappoint. The show was spectacular – the music, dancing, costumes and lighting were way over the top – we loved it! It was the perfect end to a perfect weekend, and we faced the next day's ten hour ride home exhausted but happy.

Hay-on-Wye, "Town of Books" (Lawrence Kesteloot)

Today we went to Hay-on-Wye, a tiny village in Wales about two hours from here. The village is known for its used bookshops -- 38 of them. You can see the list of bookshops at their website (alternative website). One of the stores claims to be the largest used bookstore in the world, with 400,000 books, and indeed it's gigantic. A customer once got locked in there overnight by accident. Several of the other stores claim to have a couple hundred thousand books. The village must have over a million altogether, and you can walk the whole length of it in a few minutes. The stores only close for Christmas and Easter, so if you come to visit us, let us know if you want to pop over to check it out. We plan to go back and stay at one of their bed and breakfasts so we can explore more of the stores. This being our first time we tried to keep things under control.

Weekend in Axbridge (Lawrence Kesteloot)

Since our trip to Scotland we've been to Oxford, Cambridge, and Bath, but unfortunately those pictures are on our personal laptop, which refuses to boot. In the meantime here are some pictures from a weekend we spent at a co-worker's house. Juliet, our marketing executive, lives in Axbridge, the smallest town in England (anything smaller is a village), about 45 minutes south of us. The town's houses date to the 1400s, and though most have rebuilt a new facade, a few in the center of town have hardly been touched.

Juliet and her husband David have bought a medieval building which, at various times, has been a farm, a pub, and a restaurant. It's huge, with a large courtyard in the middle where we spent most of the weekend reading and eating. They're renovating the whole place. This includes building a library for their 15,000 books; turning one room into a small film theater (it will be the only one in Axbridge); converting one large room from a Japanese rock garden into an art gallery; and of course laying out one lane of a bowling alley.

Sunday morning we went to a car boot fayre (a flea market) in nearby Cheddar and took a quick drive through the Cheddar Gorge, which we'll have to revisit for hikes. Sunday was Juliet's birthday, so for dinner we went to a restaurant in Bristol. Here are some pictures of the view from our table: Juliet and family, Georgian houses, sunset, and church.

A Day in Wales (Lawrence Kesteloot)
For May Day (May 7th), a Monday we had off, we drove to Wales, which is only 20 minutes from us. It was a beautiful day--the first since we'd arrived in Britain--and we took to the motorway without a plan. A roadsign indicated that a nearby town, Caerleon, had Roman ruins. It turns out the town was also hosting its May fair (spelled "fayre"). We weren't supposed to walk into the Roman amphitheater (because of foot-and-mouth), but dozens of people were doing it and I couldn't resist the urge to stand exactly where, 2000 years before, men faced lions for the entertainment of others. We also spent some time at the fair itself and in a small alley (called "Ffwrwm", pronounced how you'd expect) of shops and restaurants.

We drove on, heading for a shore-side castle that Jennifer had found on our map. Turns out that St. Donat's castle is now a college. Student actually try to study there. Tourists weren't allowed, so we pretended to be concerned parents choosing between St. Donat and maybe Cambridge. Pictures of the castle, stairs, statue in the garden, and the lady's room (that door leads into a stall).

On the way home we passed by a section of road where sheep are allowed to roam. So much for foot-and-mouth.

Recent Trips (Lawrence Kesteloot)

We've finally uploaded some pictures of our recent travels.

In Paris (Lawrence Kesteloot)
So ze?re noz in bequtiful Pqris: Sorry, those French of course have a different keyboard. We're in an internet cafe in Old Paris after a quick lunch in a Jewish bistro. We came for Lawrence's grandmother's 92nd birthday. Our primary goal was to visit the Louvre, but in typical French fashion they're having a strike, so we're going to visit Notre Dame instead. Last night we attended a concert of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons in an old church, la Sainte Chapelle. We're staying with Lawrence's uncle, Lucien, who lives in a beautifully-decorated apartment on Rue St. Honore. Lucien's roommate, Jean-Marc, is a wonderful cook and has been spoiling us with delicious French dishes. (We'll upload pictures when we return to England.)

Working in England (Lawrence Kesteloot)
England categoryThis is our third day at work. We haven't updated the site because we don't yet have a computer at work -- we have to steal a few minutes a day on someone else's. Jennifer is going to be shipped off for a month to Derby (pronounced "Darby"), three hours north of here. We finally managed to get a bank account -- we'll write up that adventure next week. It snowed violently today but it was too warm to stick. We calculated last night that if we take all the vacations and weekend road trips that we plan to, we'll be away one day out of four this year. For dinner Tuesday we bravely ate beef.


 Friday, February 16, 2001

We're in Bristol! (Lawrence Kesteloot)
England categoryWe're sitting in an internet cafe in Bristol after a few hours of downtown shopping. We got into England without any troubles yesterday. We got our enormous luggage onto the plane without complaints and there wasn't even anyone at the customs desk. We got a free upgrade to a Mercedes, and we made it safely to the hotel despite the mirror driving world this country lives in. Bangers for breakfast. We'll spend the next week looking for housing and a car and then we start working. We miss everyone already. God Save the Queen.


 Thursday, February 1, 2001

Day 23 (Last Day) (Jennifer Alden)
We had spent the night at Seema's house. She's a college friend of Lawrence's, and made us a delicious Indian meal, our first home-cooked meal in three weeks. (Seema with her children.)

On our way to Northern Virginia we took a small detour to see Lawrence's school, Virginia Tech. Craig, a fellow student, now teaches there in the Computer Science department. He showed us the newer buildings, and we had dinner with his wife Cara before heading out for the very last leg of our trip.

We arrived in McLean around one in the morning and celebrated with Lawrence's parents and a bottle of champagne.

We'll stay here and visit Washington, D.C. for two weeks before our flight to England on the 14th of February.


 Wednesday, January 31, 2001

Day 22 (Jennifer Alden)
We toured Savannah. See the full story.


 Tuesday, January 30, 2001

Day 21 (Jennifer Alden)
We left Orlando for St. Augustine, Florida, the oldest city in the country. It was established in 1513 by the Spanish. We only had time to tour the city's fort, Castillo de San Marcos (their website). The fort, originally built in wood, was destroyed twice by fire before the queen ordered it rebuilt in masonry. (Lawrence in the guard room.)

The fort is made of shellstone (crushed seashells held together with a natural mortar). The material was found as-is nearby. The fort was never taken.


 Monday, January 29, 2001

Days 17 to 20 (Jennifer Alden)
We spent the next few days at Disneyworld in Orlando. See the full story.


 Thursday, January 25, 2001

Day 16 (Lawrence Kesteloot)
We went to court, to a safehouse for battered women, to Aunt Dot and Uncle Oliver's, and to a toy store for some nephew-spoiling. See the full story.


 Wednesday, January 24, 2001

Day 15 (Lawrence Kesteloot)
We hung out at home, updated the website, and wrote postcards. (Spectacular Jacksonville sunset.) We went to dinner at the Mossfire Grill, a local Mexican restaurant, with Marjorie's co-worker Brook (and husband Mark) and friend Donna (and daughter Cassie). William documented.


 Tuesday, January 23, 2001

Day 14 (Jennifer Alden)
We drove to Jacksonville, Florida to stay with Jennifer's sister. See the full story.


 Monday, January 22, 2001

Day 13 (Jennifer Alden)
We left New Orleans, crossed Mississippi and Alabama, and spent the night in Pensacola, Florida. See the full story.


 Sunday, January 21, 2001

Day 12 (Jennifer Alden)
We toured New Orleans on a bus, walked through the Garden District, and spent the evening dining well. See the full story.


 Saturday, January 20, 2001

Day 11 (Lawrence Kesteloot)
We left Texas, drove through Louisiana, saw plantations, and got to New Orleans. See the full story.


 Friday, January 19, 2001

Day 10 (Jennifer Alden)
We took a very nice route through Texas and spent a few hours visiting Austin. See the full story.


 Thursday, January 18, 2001

Day 9 (Jennifer Alden)
We woke up at Rancho Bianco, where we had been relaxing day and night. We said goodbye to Matt and we were off. We took an alternate route (more dirt roads) across the Rio Grande back to the highway. We retraced our steps through Santa Fe down to Albequerque. There we rejoined with I-40 and headed east to Texas. We pledged to come back one day and explore New Mexico more thoroughly (and in warmer weather).

We had planned to spend the night in the clearly dangerous town of Amarillo, in the panhandle of Texas, but by the time we got there we found we had the energy to keep going. We drove another three hours to Sweetwater, first stopping in Lubbock for brisket and ribs at the County Line.

This day might be the least interesting point of our trip. The Texas panhandle isn't much to look at from I-40 (it gives new meaning to the word "flat") and we still had the rest of Texas to get through. (We did see some pretty houses at sunset.)


 Tuesday, January 16, 2001

Days 7 and 8 (Jennifer Alden)
We went to the ranch where our friend Matt Newsum lives. The ranch is completely self-sustainable. See the full story.


 Monday, January 15, 2001

Day 6 (Lawrence Kesteloot)
We stayed two nights at the Laughing Horse Inn in Taos. We visited the town plaza and the Rio Grande Gorge. See the full story for details.


 Sunday, January 14, 2001

Day 5 (Lawrence Kesteloot)
We visited the Petrified Forest National Park, the Painted Desert, and Santa Fe. See the full story for details.


 Saturday, January 13, 2001

Day 4 (Lawrence Kesteloot)
We went to see the Grand Canyon and some Indian ruins, and slept in a wigwam. See the full story.


 Friday, January 12, 2001

Day 2 and 3 (Jennifer Alden)
We spent the second day relaxing at Alina's, getting pedicures, and browsing book stores.

On the third day we packed the car, bought two really bad sandwiches (trying to be healthy, should have gone to McDonald's), and headed for I-40, where we would spend the next week. The I-40 is a new freeway that parallels the old Route 66, which runs from Chicago to Los Angeles. It snowed and rained. (Lots of interesting clouds.) We drove on to Williams, an hour into Arizona, just outside the Grand Canyon.

Williams is a town of 2500, whose downtown area splits Route 66 into two one-way streets for ten short blocks. Williams must have been an important stop for travellers on Route 66, but now it's primarily home to 26 hotels for Grand Canyon visitors. We paid $20 for a room with a king bed at the Budget Host Inn.


 Wednesday, January 10, 2001

Day 1 (Jennifer Alden)
After months of talking and thinking about it, we left San Francisco on January 10th. We had hoped to get an early start, but by the time we said goodbye to our roommates and got everything packed into Lawrence's Subaru, it was almost noon. It was pouring (thank heaven it hadn't rained three days earlier when we put everything into storage). We crossed the Bay Bridge one last time and were off to Altadena, near Los Angeles, to visit Jennifer's friend Alina for a couple of nights. While Jennifer drove down I-5 in the rain, Lawrence was busy plotting our course to Washington, DC.

We couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome at Alina's. She lives in an adorable cozy cottage away from the main road. We ordered Chinese food, ate by the fire with her two dogs and three cats, and slept better than we had in months.


 Saturday, January 6, 2001

Bon Voyage Party (Jennifer Alden)
Social categoryOn Saturday, January 6th, there was a Bon Voyage / Engagement party for Lawrence and Jennifer at Jennifer and Sue's house. Sue put the whole thing together, and it was the best party either of us had ever been to. So many people we loved were there, and it really meant a lot to us that everyone came, especially the people who had to come so far to be there. It was a bittersweet night for both of us - we went from laughing hysterically when Shawn and Patty brought us the recipe for a British desert called "spotted dick" (along with some interesting accessories we won't go into here) to some tearful goodbyes after midnight when we realized that we wouldn't be seeing most of our friends again for quite a while. We couldn't have asked for a better sendoff. We took a bunch of pictures.


 Monday, November 27, 2000

We're Going to England! (Lawrence Kesteloot)
England categoryWe've accepted jobs in England, in the city of Bristol, starting late February 2001. We'll spend one to two years there, relaxing and visiting Europe. See the full story.

Lawrence and Jennifer are Engaged (Jennifer Alden)
Engagement categoryOn our last full day in Hawaii, Lawrence and I took a drive to the other side of the big island. Kona, where we spent most of the week, is on the "dry" side of the island, characterized by a lot of black rock leftover from volcanic eruptions. We decided we'd like to take a look at the "wet" side, which was supposed to be much more rainforest-like. We weren't disappointed. We drove for a couple of hours to Akaka Falls State Park, full of intense jungle foliage and two huge watefalls (100 and 450 feet). There, Lawrence chose a quiet spot on the path to profess his love and ask me to marry him. I said yes (make that "YES!"). It was one of the fullest and happiest moments of my life. This picture was taken about one minute after he proposed - my face still hurts from smiling.


 Saturday, November 18, 2000

Hawaiian Vacation (Jennifer Alden)
Hawaii categoryLast Sunday, we got back from a week's vacation on the big island of Hawaii. We stayed in Kona on the west side of the island, where we snorkeled and/or scuba dived every day. The weather was perfect and the water was warm. Here are some pictures of our condo, a sea turtle, a hawaiian sunset, fun at the beach, a manta ray, and "Team Scuba".


 Sunday, October 29, 2000

Halloween Party at Denise's (Jennifer Alden)
Halloween categoryOn Saturday, October 29th, Denise had a great Halloween party. The decorations and snacks were great, right down to pumpkin-shaped jello shots and the fog machine in the back yard. Jennifer ended up in most of the pictures (Lawrence had the camera), but you can see lots of other familiar faces here: the devil, a she-serpent, a fallen angel, Jennifer and Lawrence, the sherrif, Indiana Jones, Albus Dumbledore, Betty Page, and our hostess, the flapper. We had a great time—thanks again Denise!

William and Langston (Lawrence Kesteloot)
Here is officially the cutest picture in the world. They are Jennifer's nephews, William and Langston. The picture was taken by their father shortly after Langston's birth. Can you tell he's a professional photographer (the father)? Langston is named after author Langston Hughes.

Party at Jennifer's House This Saturday (Lawrence Kesteloot)
Social categoryThere will be a party at Jennifer's house this Saturday the 26th of August. It will be mostly swing-dancers, and will potentially degenerate into a game of Beer Trek. We have to go to a wedding that afternoon, so the party will probably start around 8pm. It's potluck, bring whatever food or drink you want. Jennifer lives at 1624 Sacramento Street #3 between Polk and Larkin. Parking is impossible, so be prepared to pay around $10 or take Muni.
