I have taken a break from blogging, allowing myself time to recharge and focus on other writing projects, but tomorrow I leap back into the skies with a flight home to Portland, Oregon and a jam-packed weekend of kite-flying on the coast, harvest and beer festivals, indie rock and folk music while sipping a microbrew, a hardcore soccer rivalry between Portland and Seattle, the requisite pilgrimage to the stacks of Powell’s Books, and coffee with old friends.
Too good of an adventure to keep silent. So I terminate my blogging vacation early, with a dash of the Rose City.
To keep you satisfied until then, I leave you with my last photo installments from my recent trip to the Baltics. A day trip to a 15th century Lithuanian castle in the lake town of Trakai and a long layover in Copenhagen with old friends. To view my photo slideshows, click on the links below.
