Last weekend Lumi and I traveled to Washington D.C. to explore the
capital of the United States. We drove to SFO, parked our car with
ParkSFO, a fairly cheap service with regular shuttles to the
terminals, and flew to Washington Dulles. As we arrived very late we
just took ...
To relax after some months of hard working and paper grinding Lumi and I
decided to head down to Big Sur and Carmel for some days of relaxing,
hiking, and nature watching to reload our batteries. We started off on a
lazy Wednesday and drove the 130 miles down to ...
For today's hike we went to Joaquin Miller park in Oakland. The park
is about 30min drive from our home and on the way to the park we

Emeryville, the bay bridge, silicon valley and much more.
We set off really late (at around 11:30am) and just drove up to Grizzly ...
Today we went off for another short 'warm-up' hike before the big hiking
seasons starts. We drove to Richmond, CA where we walked along the
shoreline, explored some old railroad tracks, discovered some brick
houses (and factories), enjoyed the view over almost the complete bay
area, and strolled through Richmond ...
On our first hike of the new year we set off for the Golden Gate bridge,
Point Bonita lighthouse and beyond. We got up relatively late as we
