Page of Places

Straight from my bookmarks to your browser, it's a list of links relating to locales of various significance to me. In most cases I provide links to some photos of me in the area, if I have any. It's also possible to read any travel accounts I may have written. You should be able to find those on my Articles Page.

Scotland & Edinburgh
New Orleans
Israel
New York
Atlanta & Georgia
Germany


New Orleans

The attachment? I spent four year at school here. The verdict? Great place to go to school, great place to visit. Wouldn't want to live there. In addition to the following links, you can view some pictures from the trips I took to New Orleans in 1997.


Scotland & Edinburgh

Another fine place to study. I probably could live here, but I do miss the states. On the other hand, it's also a great place to visit. I enjoy entertianing visitors to the city and look forward to playing that role myself.

  • New York

    I was born in New York and lived there for about seven years before the family moved to Georgia. Then, in the summers after my junior and senior years at Tulane, I lived up there again, this time out on Long Island. There's still a lot of family in the area and I enjoy the time I spend there. Despite the years in Scotland, I'm probably not quite used to the cold anymore. But from the beaches of Long Island to the bustle of the city to the cattle in the northern reaches, it's a beautiful and exciting state.


    Atlanta & Georgia

    After leaving Atlanta and travelling through a few intervening states, the family settled in Georgia. "Settled" may be a poor description, as we moved from Dunwoody to Albany and from Albany to Marietta after about 3 years in each town. The folks seem pretty happy in Marietta though, so I think they'll be there for a while. Unlike most of the other places that are significant to me, Marietta is a pretty nice place to live but not a place I'd like to visit. Goes to show that you can't win them all.


    Israel

    Israel will always be important to me. I don't think (at the moment) that a piece of land or a region can be holy and I don't always agree with the policies of the country (I also don't always agree with the policies of my country!), but Eretz Yisrael is a special place. I've only been there once, and that was with a UJA trip back in 1993/94 (we were in Jerusalem for US New Years). While I don't think that I'll make aliyah, I do long to go back and get to know the country and people more.


    Germany

    I never really thought I'd develop a fondness for Germany, and I'm not really sure that I have. What I have done is made some very good friends in the country and created a lot of memories there. I've been to the country twice. Once was for the Marktoberdorf Summer School in 1997, and I took the opportunity to travel around a bit. The second time was later that year when I went back to visit a friend and together we went to Amsterdam. The only cities I've spent any time in are Marktoberdorf, Cologne (Koln), Munich (Munchen), and Wolfsborg. So I don't necessarily have a very wide knowledge of the country!
