Game of Thrones Set | Girona, Spain


While in Barcelona, we took a day trip to the coast and were lucky enough to pass through Girona, Spain. It is a beautiful city by the River Onyar with a medieval walled Old Quarter. Best of all, we visited when they were wrapping up filming for the current season of Game […]

Aerial Tram | Portland, Oregon

Since I shared a few memories from Portland earlier this week, I thought I would continue with some images from the Portland Aerial Tram. If you’re looking to do this, it is important to know that it isn’t exactly a tourist attraction. It is an actual tram that takes doctors, […]

Base Camp Brewing | Portland, Oregon

I apologize that things have been quieter than usual around these parts! We have been traveling a lot so I am exhausted and keep feeling like I am getting more and more behind. (Which doesn’t help when I finally do get on the computer!) Anyway, I am making my best attempt to […]

The Travel Process (in GIFS)


The process of traveling, as told by some of my favorite characters. That itch sets in. And you decide on a destination. Pulling the trigger on that expensive plane ticket. Planning. And more planning. Last minute panic. Excitement. Starting your adventure! Finally getting through security. The reality of a long flight setting in. Landing. […]

Squaw Creek Ski Resort | Olympic Valley, California

I was in Lake Tahoe last month for a conference and I stayed at the breathtaking Squaw Creek Resort. It was so magical, complete with waking up my final morning to fresh snowfall (quite a bit of it, actually). Squaw Valley gets some great snow due to prime location, and […]

Hop on/Hop Off Bus | Barcelona, Spain

Warning: PHOTO OVERLOAD! While in Barcelona we did the hop on/hop off bus to get to know the city. (I am a big fan of these buses, as they are usually a relatively cheap way to take in the city and stop anywhere you like. Plus you get to hear some historical […]

I think I’ve made my love affair with Lake Tahoe pretty clear. (If you missed my guide to driving around the lake, check it out!) It is such a gorgeous, serene destination. I went back this month for a brief trip and fell in love all over again. While out […]

Layover City Scenes | Reno, Nevada


Earlier this month I was in Tahoe for a conference and we flew in and out of Reno International Airport. Since I had a little time to kill before our return flight (and smokey gambling did not sound appealing), I decided to explore the city and visit the river walk at […]

Ballast Point Brewery | Temecula, California

I love Ballast Point, a San Diego based craft beer brewery, so I had to try their new restaurant and bar in Temecula. (If you don’t know, Temecula is about an hour North of San Diego and has a beautiful and thriving wine country. It also happens to be the city I grew […]
