The statistics that TripIt.com knows about. I’ve only been using +TripIt since 2008, but these stats are really interesting. First, I’ve traveled an entire year of my life. That’s 1 of 41. Sure, a small percentage, but still an interesting thing. I’ve already spent more than 10% of this year traveling, and still have at […]Read More Travel Statistics #travel #success
How was my 2015? Pretty spectacular. Life-changing. The big news of the year was the birth of our first child, our son Maxwell. He’s almost eight months old already, and it’s amazing to see how time has gone by so slowly and yet so quickly. It was a rough first six months, because he had […]Read More 2015 in Review
This is the logo I’m using for the website, adventuresincybersecurity.com. It occurred to me yesterday that I didn’t actually update this blog with the information that I am now officially a published author! My first book is autobiographical, and available at Amazon. (They’ve got an exclusive for at least the first 90 days.) You can […]Read More I Published a Book! Get “Adventures in Cybersecurity” at Amazon
Today was the first time anyone has ever stopped me at airport security with this: “You see, it resembles a sword.” – Airport Security To give you some idea, I’ve had this umbrella for at least three years.

Picture from fotki.com. I’m sitting not far from where the gent in the picture is sitting. While I have any number of improvements that I can suggest to people (and as @british_airways knows, I’m not shy about telling them), overall I do like the service that I get on British Airways. I’m sitting in the […]Read More Heading Back to London!
Picture from onlineclock.net. Technically, I’ve missed blogging today if we go by the timezone in which I’m usually writing, but here in the Pacific Time Zone, I’ve got another six hours! Of course, since I’m absolutely jet-lagged (and actually feeling slightly feverish) this won’t be much of a post. I had hoped that by coming […]Read More Time Zones and Jet-Lag!
Picture of one of the lovely decorations my wife did for our wedding. It never ceases to amaze me that most Americans don’t own a passport, and few travel. (The link includes some excellent reasoning on why that happens.) Since I’ve now lived outside the US as well as travelled extensively (and likely will continue […]Read More The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. – St. Augustine
The entrance to the Harry Potter World studio tour. My wife and I were given two tickets for Harry Potter World here in the UK. While it was difficult to get a booking, we were lucky two weekends ago that there was a cancellation and we were able to go on Saturday at 4pm. It’s […]Read More Picture Heavy Post: Harry Potter World, Part 1 @wbstudiotour #HarryPotterWorld #HarryPotter @starbucks
Today the lovely @stylishchic and I went to Harry Potter World! I’m not easily impressed, but I have to say that this was more than I was expecting. I’ll put up a more complete post sometime in the near future, but for now, here are some teaser pictures! There are quite a few pictures of […]Read More Teaser of Harry Potter World! @stylishchic @wbstudiotour
Picture from dallasobserver.com. This will be a short post, because it’s taken me about ten minutes just to download the picture above. I’m in the Dubai airport for my return to the UK, and the Wifi situation at the moment is deplorable. The BA lounge wifi hasn’t been working all day. The Wifi in the […]Read More No Wifi? That’s Unpossible! @british_airways @twitter @wireduk
