Oh the Places I’ve Been 2015

Here is a summary of my travel in 2015.

In February I went to Nepal to coach our school’s team for boy’s soccer. I didn’t get to see much of the country but did get to walk around Kathmandu a little and even spend a bit of time in a hospital with a player that broke his ankle.

In March I went to an Adaptive Schools training in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. While I didn’t get to see much of Malaysia, I did get to walk around KL a bit before the training started and in the evenings.

In early April, Pepper’s mom came to visit during our spring break. We flew to Delhi and visited sights there including getting down to Agra to see the Taj Mahal.

Later in April we had our track meet in Muscat, Oman. I have already been to the city last year for soccer so it wasn’t a new place but still nice to go there for a new reason. It was extra special because Pepper and I both were coaches and Jordan was on the team. We brought Jacob along too, so it was a trip for the whole family.

Once our summer break began, we returned to the US, but made a stopover in London on our way. We spent a few days seeing sights in the city and really appreciated breaking up the long flights with a few days of vacationing.

We then headed up to Alaska were we rented an RV and drove around parts of the interior and even got some spectacular views of Denali.


We spent time in Petersburg and Pepper and Brooke did a trip through Southeast Alaska and saw most of the larger communities there. We spent time in Washington and New York seeing friends and family before heading straight back to India.

For this year’s volleyball tournament we went to Sri Lanka.  Like most of the sports trips, I wasn’t able to see much of the city other than the area near the school and my host’s home.

For my Discover India trip, this year I returned to the Rishikesh area for a hiking, biking and rafting experience.  We had a great time and I was able to see some new sights in the area.  Here is a little video clip I made from the trip.

For our winter break we spent a few days in Doha then went on to Serbia.  We have ended the year in Romania.

Overall a good year of travel!
