On The road

April 9, 2019

A few friends and I recently took a long weekend desert trip to Palm Springs.  Since we had such a great time, I wanted to share our guide:


8:00 am  Our journey started from San Diego, and it was a quick 2-hour drive. Note: make sure to look at your driving directions beforehand as the mountain route is a bit winding. If you get car sick easily, just take the major freeways.

10:00 am  First stop: "Dive-In" by Super...

Freezing temperatures can't stop the city that never sleeps. There's something about the hustle and bustle of New York City in the cold winter months that brings warmth to the soul. Well, that and a good fur (faux, of course). Here are a few ways to embrace those chilly days in the Big Apple:

- Take the Subway: it may be intimidating at first, but you'll get the hang of it and be traveling like a local in no time. The subway is...

When somebody asks you to describe New Orleans, it's easier to tell them how the city makes you feel.  There aren't many places in the world where that's the case, and that's mainly because the Crescent City has an infectious quality about it.  The longer you stay, the more it becomes a part of you.  It had been nearly two years since I was last in the Big Easy, and while some things have changed, it's still that old familiar...

For a wine lover living in San Diego who's looking for the quality of Napa without the long trek (or the inflated prices), there's really only one legitimate option: Paso Robles.  In the relatively same amount of time it takes to drive to Phoenix or Las Vegas, it's worth noting that Paso is in our "backyard".  My husband and I recently made the trip north for my friend's wedding.  Neither of us had visited Paso, so we made a l...

Keep Austin Weird.  I'm a big proponent of this slogan.  Its quirky hipsters mixed with true cowboys make it a unique and entertaining destination.  I was invited to ATX to celebrate a close friend's joint bachelorette/bachelor party.  As it was my first time in the city, I got there a day early to explore with my sister-in-law, Sarah.


I arrived to The Kimpton Van Zandt in the early af...

Mid-century modern homes, picturesque poolsides, and of course, the palm trees - it's what Palm Springs is all about.  I recently visited my parents' house in the high desert for the weekend.  On the way back to San Diego, I decided to treat myself to a solo trip to Palm Springs.  The last time I visited Palm Springs was for a bachelorette party a few years ago, so I was looking forward to exploring the town on my own....

My husband and I hopped on a train from Edinburgh heading south towards London, but first we decided to stop in Darlington - a quaint town in the English countryside.  Our stop had one purpose: the Middleton Lodge, a Georgian country estate.

The estate was built in 1780 and is now privately owned by a family.  There aren't many accommodations which makes for an intimate experience and allows guests to create a pe...

Driving into Edinburgh's city center feels a bit like traveling back to the Middle Ages.  Ominous castle-like structures dot the skyline, narrow+vertical cobblestone pathways lure you in around each bend, and you might catch a glimpse of the occasional sword fight.  Okay, so I might be fibbing about that last part, but you get the idea! 

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and has been since the late 1...

It's no surprise why the Netherlands is ranked as one of the happiest countries in the world.  Amsterdam can be defined by the bicyclists, stunning architecture, renowned museums, picturesque canals, and really good cheese! 

Getting to the city center was about a 30 minute drive from the airport.  To our amazement, almost all the airport taxis were Teslas and priced similar to a taxi.  We stayed at...

With 8.78 million residents and even more tourists visiting every year, London is a bustling city. My husband and I had 6 days to spend in London and it still felt like so little time.  I was the only one in the group who had never been to London, so I had to squeeze in visits to tourist sights + museums.  I won't go into every little detail as I like to keep these posts relatively short, but here are the highlights from our t...
