Wine, Food, and The Golden Gate Bridge !

We started off the morning with a hearty breakfast at Homeskillet, thanks to my Yelp app. We loved the originality of breakfast at the counter and an open stove. The open stove made for an incredibly hot restaurant serving fresh, homemade breakfast. I went for the Eggs Benedict with tater tots for only $9. Hello, winner! We made my way to

Straight Outta Venezia !

Rainy days in Venezia. Bridges, bridges galore ! The “City of Canals,” just in case you were wondering. It’s illegal to drive in Venice. But don’t worry, you can take a water taxi through and around the entire city! “Gothic” style architecture takes your breath away. As I walked the cobble stone streets, I was

Portland Love

All the green in Portland and beauty of the city makes for Portland a dream destination. We stayed in an AirBnB in the Southeast Neighborhood. The neighborhood was unbelievably adorable and conveniently walkable. Me, being a girl from Arizona, was taken back by all the greenery. I loved seeing the trees, flowers, grass and fresh

I take on DC.

The moment I stepped off the plane, everything changed. The land felt new. The smell felt stronger. It was real.. Real leaves change colors. Real life takes place. The first thing I had to do was find a car to take me to Bolling Military Base. Yes, military baby and I am proud. Especially during

When Riding Solo .. Don’t Trip

There are a few things I have picked up while traveling solo. I have visited a few major cities alone. Never meant to go alone, but sometimes you just have to pack your bags and go! A trip to the big apple was my first solo trip. I had the urging desire to go and

I Brought Sand to the Beach Cause My Beach is Better

As a child, my grandmother wouldn’t let me collect seashells. She believed that people go to the beach and tell the ocean their problems. The seashells would keep their problems and if you took the seashells, you would be taking their problems home with you. I happily left all the seashells on the beach while I

‘Eat, Pray, Love’ – In That Order.

I am the epitome of a girls’ girl. So when I saw the movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ starring Julia Roberts, I was inspired to travel solo to Italy! And just like that… I was in Italy. Living out scenes from one of my favorite movies. Walking the streets of Rome, shopping for “bigger pants,” trying

Falling In Love With Florencia <3

Florence, Italy. What is there to say about such a beautiful city. It was my first stop on my first European solo adventure. It took me a couple hours to really take in the astonishing medieval architecture. I only had one day in Florence and I wanted to spend it wandering around, getting lost.   I

Roaming En Roma

The city of Rome is one very unique in it’s likeness. You have the history of all the old buildings and architecture that captivates the tourists. But I loved walking the around and seeing all the street art and locals. It’s great to see different cultures in their unfeathered atmosphere. My goal for the day was

On The Island – We Drive On The Left Side

My time in St. Thomas was one the most enjoyable times of my life.. On the island they drive on the wrong side of the road! Yes that is presumptuous to assume that the driving in America is the right way.  They don’t even stop at red lights, they are described as “pink lights, which

Life Sailing in San Fran

That one time I went to San Francisco! Who doesn’t love the most expensive city in the U.S. ?! Well I do! One of my favorite cities I have ever visited. A friend of mine was working in the city so a group of us gathered our belongings and crashed with her for a week.
