When we spur of the moment bought plane tickets to Santiago, Chile (thanks again Orbitz and your error fare!) I had no intention of going to Patagonia. Between cost and the limited amount of time we had, it didn't seem like it was even an option.After I did a little bit of research I quickly realized it was 100%...
View from Vinos las Nubes
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 from Cloud 9, Shanghai
When I booked my first trip that had an extended layover in London, I knew I had to get out of the airport. One of my best friends from college had been living there for 8 years, and while we had traveled the world together, I had never been to London while she lived there. I started researching what...
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...
Shanghai, China
While I have some recommendations and tips for a long layover in Shanghai, I have to admit, it didn’t make it on the favorite places list. Perhaps Shanghai requires a longer stay in order to truly appreciate it (and I must admit there were places I had on my list of things to do and see that I didn’t...
Coron Island
When we decided to go to the Philippines we knew we would only be able to pick one place to go due to time constraints. We would be coming from Hong Kong and it seemed no matter where we wanted to go we'd have to fly through Manila to get there.After chatting with some friends that had been to...

A Hong Kong Weekend

I loved Hong Kong. It reminded me a bit of a cross between New York City and San Francisco, in Asia. My “weekend” in Hong Kong was actually parts of two weekends but it makes up a Friday night through Monday morning, on both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, in the humid sunshine and cooler rain, so I feel...
Havana, Cuba
Now that it's easier than ever to get to Cuba from the United States, articles are popping up everywhere with what you should know and do before going to Cuba. Here is what we found helpful:Exchange US Dollars into Euros before you go. If you don't, you'll be charged a 10% tax when you exchange your money in...

Tranquil Trinidad

Trinidad
The other stop on our Cuba tour was the small town of Trinidad, about 4 hours southeast of Havana. Once there (after a longer than 4 hour, hot and sweaty, taxi collectivo ride) we immediately fell in love with the place and the people. Where to Stay I believe there are a handful of hotels in Trinidad, and definitely a few...

Havana Nights

Habana Vieja
Once the travel ban to Cuba had been lifted, we knew we wanted to get there before things really started to change. I had been waiting for commercial flights from the United States to start when I came upon a reasonably priced flight from Tijuana. Making the decision even easier was the CBX bridge that would take you right...
