Radio + baseball = best nostalgia trigger ever

Reactions to In the Same Ballpark, episode 262 from 99% Invisible. When I was in graduate school, work around my thesis included the analysis of ballpark design from the formation of the game through the present day. The target for this deep analysis

Île d’Oléron | Spring vacation 2017

Sailing lessons, the Marais aux Oiseaux, Les Jardins Botaniques de la Boirie, and the Eglise Saint-Georges were the highlights of our spring 2017 trip to the Île d’Oléron. We last visited in 2015; that preceded our shorter trip to the neighboring Île de Ré in 2016. We
