2017-10-22 Chicago / New Orleans / New York, USA
I had never been to Chicago. It's a nice city (lake, river, buildings, etc.). I particularly liked the Art Institute of Chicago (a fantastic museum!). It was the second time I went to New Orleans and the first time since 2001. This is the city I liked the least among the three. I liked the National WWII Museum, though. It's very well done. Finally, this was the third time I went to New York (after 2001 and 2004). A fantastic city, of course. The city. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is impressive. Probably one of the best museums in the world. The National 9/11 Memorial & Museum was completely different, but very moving and also very well done. It had a special meaning for me, as I first visited New York in September 2001, a few days before 9/11. I will also miss the vegan restaurants. A lot.

2017-08-27 Adelboden, Switzerland
A weekend in Adelboden for our 5-year wedding anniversary. We stayed at The Cambrian, a wonderful hotel, with a beautiful view, a spa, an indoor pool, a small outdoor pool (warmer), an excellent restaurant, etc. A very relaxing stay. We visited Thun Castle on our way back.

2017-08-04 Alcúdia, Majorca, Balearic Islands, Spain
This is not the kind of trips I'm naturally "attracted" to. We spent seven nights at PortBlue Club Pollentia Resort & Spa. We didn't visit the area. At all. Instead, we slept, ate, went to the swimming pool and to the spa, read books, etc. For six complete days. This was the plan and this is what we did. I finished A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy and started Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow. The last time we did something similar was in 2013, when we went to Fuerteventura.

2017-04-23 Tokyo / Kyoto, Japan Tokyo
Tokyo: National Museum of Modern Art
Fujiyoshida
Kyoto
Nara
This was a trip we had wanted to do for several years. It was obviously very different from our trip to Namibia in 2016: big cities (Tokyo, especially), many people (in the subway, in the stations, in the streets), a language (Japanese) we couldn't read, etc.; but it was also quite "exotic", in a different way. This was the cherry blossom season, so nature was still an important dimension of the trip, in a sense, although we mainly visited cities. It was quite a dense trip, which I see as a kind of introduction to a country I had never visited before. We definitely need to go back to Japan someday.
