I get to travel quite a bit for work. Here, I keep all my roundup posts, with endless pictures, of all the places I’ve been lucky to see.

Last week, I was in Utah for the Automattic Grand Meetup. The meetup was, as usual, amazing. There were so many times when I’d be walking down the hall wishing we always lived in this crazy hotelΒ β€” as if I could somehow curate my own world and community with these Automatticians that I adore and admire so much.Β 


Vale, Sevilla

Last week, I visited Spain for the first time. I was fortunate enough to be selected as a volunteer for WordCamp Europe – which, as a side note, was one of the best WordCamps I’ve been to. It was so well-organized with a group of fantastic speakers and the overall atmosphere was just awesome. I wish I had some reason in my life to sit in a room like that all day and listen to everyone communicating in such a wide variety of languages, to the extent that most folks seemed to forget which language they should be speaking. Europe, you’re a very special place and I adore you.

Keep it weird. :)

Portland, Portlandia

When I graduated from college, I had three cities in mind as to where I wanted to move: Portland, OR; Bloomington, IN; and Washington, DC. That list probably tells you a lot more about me than I care to admit. In the end, I chose to move to DC.Β 

On the way to the Arch, the water in the fountain was dyed red for the Cardinals. At least, so I'm told.


Last weekend, I took a very brief, albeit appreciated, trip to St. Louis, MO. It was my first time there and we were visiting for a wedding, which turned out to be one of the loveliest that I’ve been to. On Friday, I had some time to myself and got a chance to walk around downtown. After grabbing lunch and spending some time reading, I walked around the parks on Market Street. It was a gorgeous day out, so I walked right through the sculpture garden straight to the Gateway Arch. That was the one big thing I had to make sure I saw before leaving St. Louis, so I wanted to visit as soon as I could.
