Welcome

Me in Switzerland!

Hi!  I’m Eric and this is my personal homepage and travel blog.  My ideal weekend involves some kind of outdoor adventure somewhere in my home state of Maine and my ideal vacation is experiencing someplace really cool with my wife in another part of the world.  On this website, I’m writing about those adventures, sharing pictures, sharing any tips I may have, and putting together highlight videos.  I may also write about my other interests in my blog.

I’m in the process of writing about past Maine adventures and travel destinations and back-dating those posts to when I did them.  I still have lots of trips to add before I’m caught up but I’m getting there!  I hope that you enjoy the site and find inspiration for your next vacation or weekend adventure!  Much more to come!
