I’ve been lucky this year in that I have had many opportunities to travel with both family and friends. Back in May, the family took a trip to Taipei to visit family with an added side trip to Palau. In July, I took a weekend trip up to NYC to visit Angela, who was an Amgen scholar at Columbia. September led to a mini-trip to the west coast for BMES in Seattle with Oriane. Finally, for fall break, Angela and I made it out to the mountains of NC, visiting Asheville and Lake Lure.
