Cali Travels: San Francisco


A week or so ago Paul and I spent a long weekend up in San Francisco for my birthday! On the same day a few years ago, Paul and I found ourselves in the same city celebrating a birthday and an engagement, so we have nothing but the fondest memories of the city! Despite it being... read more

Upstate NY Travels: Wine Country


For Memorial Day weekend, I had the privilege of spending a long weekend with my best friend for her bridal shower / bachelorette weekend!  I flew in from San Diego and she from Denver into the tiny airport that is Rochester (known as the ROC). We then drove down a seemingly endless supply of very... read more

KP Travels: Sydney (part two)


On our last full day in town, my lover and I took a leisurely stroll down to the Sydney Fish Market. This one-stop shop is a working port, wholesale market, bakery, sushi bar, and the list goes on… It’s actually the third largest of its kind in the world, but just to give you some... read more

KP Travels: Sydney (Part One)


After our week in Parramatta, we took the (very convenient, affordable and efficient) train to downtown Sydney. Per usual, I had spent a bit of time researching the proper neighborhood for us to spend the weekend. Obviously I wanted the neighborhood itself to be fitting to our style, but also I wanted close proximity to... read more

Aussieland Travels: Parramatta


A few weeks ago my lover and I were lucky enough to take a trip to Australia.

The cool part of... read more

Cali Travels: Santa Barbara


As I mentioned in an earlier post, Paul and I had work outside of San Francisco and rather than fly, we decided to take the scenic route up the Pacific Coast Highway through as many quaint, beach towns as we could. First stop on the itinerary: Santa Barbara. While we had never visited the city... read more

SoCal Travels: Pacific Beach


A few weekends back Paul and I visited Pacific Beach! As a part of our goal of getting to know San Diego better Pacific Beach was a key neighborhood we were excited to explore. Since we had visited Ocean Beach a few weeks ago we were excited to compare the two. PB was a quick 15-minute... read more

Roadtrip: California Coast


We have some work scheduled in San Francisco next week and rather than fly, Paul pitched the idea of taking the scenic route and driving up the coast! Before any other discussion, we had to ask ourselves two things: how long is the drive and how many stops will we make. After a back and... read more
