India is an enormous country with more history than you could see in your lifetime. But – most of their world-famous tourist sites are all located in and around the Delhi to Agra corridor.
On our first day, we did a grand tour of Delhi’s attractions. The next day, we drove down to Agra to see the Taj and Red Fort. [Read more…]
We could have simply flown. But when you only have a week in a country – what better way to see the physical country than a train?
Plus – there are few, if any, rail systems as famous as Indian Railways. They were the crown jewel of the British and India has used them to physically and symbolically tie the country together since independence.
Either way – I wasn’t going to visit India without riding a train. So here’s how the experience went down. [Read more…]
In June 2016, I traveled to India with my parents and younger sister to attend my other younger sister’s wedding. Previously, my travels had been limited to Nicaragua, Guatemala, The Philippines plus a handful of US cities such as Chicago, Boston and New York.
So it was exciting to not only attend my sister’s wedding but also have a good excuse to visit the world’s second largest country – which also happens to be one of the world’s oldest civilizations and one of the most powerful countries in the 21st Century.
Our visit took us to Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore) then to Delhi before flying back to the US. This post will cover general lessons on traveling to India while another will cover traveling on Indian Railways and yet another will look at my visit to some of India’s most famous landmarks.

EDIT: Originally published in Feb 2012, I’ve updated this post in July 2016 to reflect the current state of GoDaddy hosting for a 2016 GoDaddy Hosting Review.
This is a product review. It’s biased – but mainly because I’m (EDIT: was) an actual customer of GoDaddy.
You’ve probably seen GoDaddy’s Super Bowl commercials, GoDaddy girls all around the internet, and most recently their Helping Small Business commercials in 2014.
GoDaddy is certainly the market leader in domains – and trying to be in web hosting.
Are they just the right WordPress Hosting Tool to build a better blog?
I started out using them (because of the brand) but I’ve moved to HostGator. So.
First off – I’m so happy I switched. I was definitely worth the transition.
But now that I’ve been using HostGator for several years (and setup several websites using WordPress) – I’ve got a full pros and cons list of using HostGator that would’ve been useful to know before signing up.
So let’s dive into my HostGator review. They aren’t the best fit for everyone, but here’s what I’ve liked/disliked. If you want other options, be sure to check out Conclusion. [Read more…]
Running is possibly the best way to see any city. It’s fast enough to cover a lot of ground, but also slow enough to really see and notice things. You are also combining sightseeing with exercise, so it’s an efficient use of time on a business trip.
Running through the Back Bay and North End was my favorite part of visiting Boston, and it’s been a travel habit ever since.
There is a problem of running in a city you’re visiting – you have no real idea of where to run. Usually hotels in large cities are in heavily-trafficked areas that aren’t very fun to run in.
And if you go too far off the beaten track, you might get into a neighborhood where you don’t want to be (crime-y & confusing) or at least a neighborhood that is not fun to run in (no sidewalks; cars flying everywhere).
I’ve been living and running all throughout Atlanta for more than 3 years. And have run in 3 marathons winding throughout Atlanta. If you are a tourist in Atlanta for fun or business, here are the best places to run in Atlanta.
Aside – most start/end in Downtown or Midtown. If you are in Buckhead or Perimeter Center, I’ll cover your options at the end. [Read more…]

I live 3 miles from the Georgia State Capitol and work about 1/2 mile from it, so I see it pretty much everyday. This is also my first winter living and working so close to the Capitol, so I’ve been getting used dealing with the influx of staffers, Representatives and Senators to the Assembly (their annual session lasts from January to March).
Either way, I took this photo while out on a run. Although the Capitol building is relatively new (built in 1889), it still an interesting building with some cool factoids about it. Here’s what I’ve learned while running, walking, busing and driving by – [Read more…]
