Dohnutman's Wiki – About Me

See more on my mega blog Utterly Disinterested

I was born and raised in California, (Bay Area) and moved to Boston, Massachusetts to attend college. Met my wife and never moved back….

Travel Interests

Places: Countries, States, Cities, and Regions I love to visit or would love to visit. (These are also areas I will try to contribute Articles to.)

In the US

Golden Gate Bridge from Marin County with San Francisco in background

California – the Golden State

  • Bay Area – Home Sweet Home
  • California Delta – a.k.a the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta - Very hard area to photograph but a very fascinating landscape full of levees (most of the area is 15 feet above sea level with some areas below sea level) , draw bridges, walnut grooves, and vineyards.
  • Half Moon Bay – Beach and surf city. Fun to explore Highway 92 and the Highway 1 (a.k.a the Pacific Coast Highway.)
  • Menlo Park – Not Menlo Park in NJ
  • Mountain View (California)
  • Palo Alto – a.k.a. "Shallow Alto" cause of the high yuppie and student populations, but still a neat city to explore.
  • San Francisco – love "the City" even though it can be a huge tourist trap.
  • San Jose (California)

Hawaii – Aloha! Also scoffing at you Cape Cod beaches!!

First Parish Meeting House on the Common, Shirley, MA

Massachusetts – Pahk the Cah in the Yahd (Yes some people REALLY speak that way.)

Nevada

  • Las Vegas – There is more to do in Vegas than just gamble. (No really there is.)

Oregon – Pronounced like Organ NOT Oro-Gone like the Chowdah-heads say :-)

Washington & the Pacific Northwest (United States of America)


United States National Parks – I have a buddy whose mission is to see all the NPS parks by 2010. I hope to join him on some of those adventures.


The Caribbean – Scoff at you Cape Cod beaches!! Yes the water really is that blue, the sand that white, and heat that hot!

Future Caribbean Trips on the Radar – Going to *try* to see 1 to 3 islands a year.

The regions of the South Pacific [Oceania] – Yep - Scoffing at the Cape Cod beaches as well!!

The countries of Mediterranean Europe – Also Scoffing at the Cape Cod beaches as well!!

I can get the wife to brave it – East Asia & Southeast Asia


Canada, Mexico, Central, & South America as well as (Europe are on the radar too!)
