I started this blog in 2010 to chronicle a 5-month fellowship in Europe, where I explored how regions have freed their communities from cars and made biking, walking and transit a bigger part of daily life.
Fast-forward to September 2014: I have just left my job as the Director of ClimatePlan and I am riding my bike through Asia for the next three months. Along the way I’ll share stories, photos and observations. Thanks for visiting.
Hi Autumn, this is Barbara Bernstein kubarych your dad’s first cousin; my dad was Sid, your grandfather Harold’s brother. Your dad and I have become quite close in recent years and he sent me the link to your blog today… It’s fabulous! You are a beautiful and insightful writer and your photographs are gorgeous. I will greatly enjoy coming along for the ride on your journey through your blog. Thanks for sharing! I hope to meet you when you come back!!
hi Barbara, thanks for getting in touch. I remember, as a child, seeing photos of you at my Grandma Betty’s house. I think we may have met once at the Bernstein family reunion in Aptos? But I was very young, and might be making that up! In any case, thanks for reading and yes I do hope we can meet sometime.
