Amsterdam: the Heineken Experience

A small group of us walked to the Heineken Experience to enjoy a tour and 2.5 complimentary glasses of Heineken beer (included in the admission cost). The photos were taken with my iPhone 4S since it was raining on and off.

Special thanks to my coworker, Jenia Laszlo, for taking a couple of photos so my mom and Amy would see me. 🙂

A visit to PERC Coffee

While I was in Tybee Island a few months ago with my felllow coworkers, a handful of us (coffee lovers) joined Jane Wells to test several shots of espresso made with the Presso at PERC Coffee.

It was incredible to taste the differences with each variable modification that goes into creating each shot of espresso, and we had a great time watching Philip demonstrate using the Presso. He really knows his stuff. (I’ll just say that I’m really glad my AeroPress is easy to use.)

Thanks for taking the time to chat with us, Philip. Keep on roasting! 🙂

Lake Havasu vacation with Amy, Part 1

In July last year, I went to Lake Havasu with my girlfriend, Amy, on our first vacation together. We did our best to deal with the heat, and it was relaxing to spend time with her.

These photos are from our first day in Lake Havasu. Amy was a trooper to watch me take random photos around London Bridge, and I think I was drenched from the heat after thirty minutes. (Someone asked if I was from around there. Oh, aren’t you clever?)

Thanks to the kindness of a tourist taking our photo by the bridge, I made an appearance in one of the photos. 🙂

Geeky side note: I was considering excluding a couple photos to feature at the top of this post, leading into the gallery below, but the photo carousel for is really slick, so I’ll just leave it as is.

Remembering 9/11: The 10th Anniversary

I visited the Nixon Presidential Library & Museum with Amy and her friend to take photos and pay our respects. As for posting this over a week later, I’d say it’s better late than never.

Hat tip: Thanks to Amy for choosing these ten photos. 🙂
