Teotihuacan, Mexico
I had never given too much thought to Mexico City. After all, I'd done the beaches in Cancun and Cabo and the border was 30 minutes from my house. But after a couple of layovers there and hearing more and more good things about it, we decided to look at flights. $115 round trip from Tijuana. Done.Before I get into...
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...
Zion National Park
I had wanted to visit the national parks in Utah for years. Unfortunately (or fortunately) international trips seemed to take up most of our vacation days. Long holiday weekends sounded like some the busiest times to visit. Finally, after A LOT of international travel in 2018 and deciding to visit family over Christmas, we were left with the option...
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...
We decided to head to Portland at the end of October. Not exactly prime weather time to go to Portland, but that also meant less tourists and cheaper flights! Since we were only there for a short time we decided to stick to the city – next time I definitely want to rent a car and check out some...
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...
