Activities, travels, and music

It’s been two months since my last travel/music post. I am in a hotel in Athens waiting for the hours to go by before my return flights to Seattle tomorrow so I thought of recording some of my activities/travel/festival highlights over the last couple of months.

There was that May dual sport ride and a night out with my fantastic team (including the Shanghai part who were visiting at the time).

There was that hiking day with friends… Rattlesnake hike. Maria was visiting from Baltimore. It was great seeing her. Together with Tini and Mia we had a great day. The landscape was gorgeous :-)

Then, Mary took me to the SoundersBoca Juniors game, in style… food and drinks from a suite. Sonja and John joined us for drinks before the game.

After Coachella and some concerts in between, Mary and I went to the Sasquatch festival. There we found Lee and Sheldon. We all had an amazing time! It was a great festival! The Gorge is definitely one of the best concert venous in the world.

Music-wise, I found that the following bands were great…

Any Sasquatch weekend has to be followed by a weekend in New York City :-) Cris came from Washington DC for a day. There was a lot of walking, some jazz, good food, stand up comedy, random encounters at the Central Park, brunch at a restaurant overlooking Central Park from far high up, theater (“La Cage Aux Folles” starring Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge was awesome), and more! Oh… we are going to be sooooo frequent over there.

And finally… there was Glastonbury two weeks ago, which deserves its own blog post of course :-)


This summer is going to be great music- and travel-wise. I am soooo looking forward to it :-)))
