Travel map

I’ve been to about 70/196 countries. My favorite trips have been:

2014 Republic of Congo and CAR: CAR has the best elephant viewing in the world and is always an adventure

2015 Rwanda and DRC: A loop around Lake Kivu including Virunga, Idjwi Island, Kahuzi-Biega, Nyungwe, Volcanoes, and some hiking/cycling along the lake on the Rwanda side

2016 Tour d’Afrique: 4-month bike ride from Cairo to Cape Town

2016 Gabon: Awesome elephant viewing including elephants near the beach

2017 USA/Canada roadtrip: 2.5 months in a loop from Chicago to the south to California, up to Canada, down to Utah/Colorado, then back to Chicago

2017 The Israel Trail: 1.5 months hiking through the whole country from north to south

2018 India and Nepal: India is a crazy place and Nepal is beautiful – I hiked the Annapurna Circuit

2018 Living in Paris for 2 months: J’ai habité à Belleville et j’ai essayé d’apprendre le français (which didn’t go that well because I had to Google Translate this)

2021 Living at Sangha Lodge in CAR for 2 months: An interesting alternative to living in a city during a pandemic
