What I Did On My Spring Break

New Zealand GForce Paragliding

I missed you all very much, honest. Here are a few more pictures if you want to be sure that I was using my time wisely.

Here’s how I overpacked on technology for international travel:

•  OnePlus One Android phone, converted to a New Zealand phone with 2Gb of data, unlimited local calls, and 100 minutes of US phone calls, for $49 with a Vodafone airport SIM card. […] continued

The Empty Nest And The Fall Leaves – Bruceb Out Of Town 09/30-10/06

I will be out of the office during the week of September 30.

The nest is empty. Andrew Berls played a material role in the relaunch of Causes.com during his summer internship before heading back for his senior year at UC Santa Barbara. […] continued
