We’ve all been in the position of trying to stuff a lot of things to do into a short amount of time. Whether it’s running errands, going to appointments, or having to pick up the kids of a half-day. Arleena and I were pressed on time, and decided to stay local and find some kind […]...

We received passes for our visit.  All opinions are mine. I love Disneyland!  No matter how old I am, there is always something magical about visiting Disneyland.  I especially love visiting during the holidays, particularly during the Halloween and Christmas seasons.  Frank and I recently headed to Disneyland on a weekend getaway sans kids.  W...

Frank and I love to travel!  Recently, we headed up to San Francisco and spent a weekend exploring the city like tourists do.  It was pretty fun!  I definitely think we’ll be visiting San Francisco again – especially since it’s only about 4 hours away north of us.  We had a great drive up and […]...

I LOVE to eat crab!  Living on the Central Coast of California, you think I would have it a lot, right?  Not so.  It’s kind of outside our budget on a regular basis, but this was a special getaway weekend for Frank and I and we decided to splurge.  And oh my gosh – was […]...

I love to travel, but have never been to Alaska before.  I’ve heard amazing things about Alaska from those who have traveled there and have it on my bucket list of places to visit.  I’m hoping that Frank will want to visit Alaska someday too! Do you seek adventure, love to travel or enjoy the […]...

I love to travel!  In fact, since a young age, I’ve enjoyed traveling.  I’ve traveled to Maui (at age 13), to Canada (at 15) and to Russia (at age 18).  Since starting my blog, I’ve had the opportunity to travel around the county, as well as to Mexico a few times.  I’ve visited Cancun, Mexico […]...

Frank and I travel down to Los Angeles a lot!  We’ve found that sometimes it’s just easier (and more cost-effective) to take a taxi to get where we’re going.  Whether we’re heading to a baseball game, a concert or a press event, it can get expensive (and frustrating) driving around and searching for parking in […]...

I love to travel and if you’ve noticed, our generation of techies in their twenties and early thirties (Millennials), are reshaping the way of travel.  According to a survey commissioned by Chase Card Services, millennials are twice as likely to prefer Elite status as a benefit of their travel rewards program, compared to older travelers.

  Oops! We did it again! It’s only been 7 weeks since Arleena and I last visited Murray Hill (otherwise known as the Unnamed Hill)/ Reservoir Canyon Trail. I cannot believe we chose to do the other side – and on a sweltering 90-degree sunny day no less! The last time we ventured up this […]...

This week Arleena and I revisited Cerro San Luis (or San Luis Mountain). Back in week 12, Arleena and I made a wrong turn on this trail that only got us to the M on this mountain which about ¾ of the way up to the top. Needless to say we were a bit bummed […]...

A romantic place filled with gorgeous architecture and rich history, the whole of Europe is a dream destination of many people. While you want to get lost there for days, you must remember to bring enough (not all) essentials like wedge boots, jeans and cardigans especially when you’re traveling for the first time. Amsterdam, Berlin, […]...
