Portland Schooner
Somehow after 22 years of living in New England, and numerous trips to Maine, I had never spent any time in Portland. I was given the opportunity to go this past weekend for a bachelorette party (sorry, Toby!). It was too quick a trip and I definitely want to go back, but here were my thoughts on what I...

There have been a variety of articles written about Guadalupe Valley being the next Napa - being that Mexico is a drive, walk, and quick uber away (and much less expensive than Napa) I was excited to check it out.We walked across the border a little before 11am and called an uber. If you've never walked across the border...
View of Brooklyn
We kicked off the 2016 wedding season in Brooklyn, NY in June.  There a million and one restaurants, bars and things to do in NYC so I won't tell you where you HAVE to go - I'm no New York expert, but here are some (mostly) foodie highlights from our trip: Brooklyn meadowsweet - Located in Williamsburg, we went here for...
Growing up in the northeast, I was no stranger to Canada, we frequented Montreal between the ages of 18-21 and made a trip to Niagara Falls. But British Columbia - that was a whole world away. That was, until I moved to San Diego and then it was just a few hours of flights up the coast! Although we...
After almost nine years of living in California, I finally made some time to visit Big Sur. Living down in San Diego meant that I couldn't make it an easy day, or even weekend trip, so with a week off between Christmas and New Years I made a mini-road trip itinerary. Day 1 - Paso Robles Being that I'm a wine...
Las Brisas, Huatulco
After spending our birthdays climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, we decided to spend our next getaway relaxing on the beach. After a busy first 9 months of the year and vacation days dwindling, we were limited to a short adventure over the Thanksgiving holiday. With limited days, and our close proximity to the Tijuana airport, somewhere in Mexico seemed like the best...
We decided relatively last minute to make a weekend trip to Vegas which meant flight prices were already climbing.  With no traffic we could make it from San Diego to Las Vegas in about 4 ½ hours so we decided it was worth saving a few hundred dollars and turning the weekend into a mini-road trip. Tip: leave as early...
Tacos and Beer
When I moved to San Diego back in 2008 it wasn't all that safe to travel to Tijuana - people had even stopped going over for an afternoon of cheap tacos and beers. As things started to change all I heard were nightmare stories about how long it took to cross the border on the way home and I...
