As I looked into my blog in the last few days, I came across one of the first posts I created in 2015. Like a diary, it became my day to day platform to write a story or two about my life abroad. Fast forward 5 years later, I’m still writing on this very same platform. It seems that the posts I wrote abroad, during … Continue reading My Top 10 Posts of All Time According to You
I’m sitting here letting the title of this post marinate for a little bit. I feel that we’re far from the crisis ending anytime soon but, I am hopeful. One day, when this ends and I am sure it will, I want to be ready for the things that I missed doing or took for granted before the crisis started. These are in no way … Continue reading First Thing I Will Do After the COVID-19 Crisis Ends.
On my last day in Chicago I spent all morning at the Art Institute of Chicago, the oldest and largest art museums in the United States. Several people have told me it is a must see when you come to Chicago and they were right. The museum has over 300,000 permanent collections of art works from modern art, classical art to chinese, japanese expositions. I … Continue reading Visiting the Art Institute of Chicago.
Chicago was definitely a city that’s been on my list of places to see. However, due to their harsh cold weather (by California standards anything under 75 degrees F is cold), it was a major factor in influencing my decision of not coming to visit sooner. With decent flight winter deals, I could not turn away from this opportunity and bought my tickets (rain or … Continue reading First night in the windy city: Chicago, Illinois.
I’ve had my share of views for sunsets and I can tell yeah that watching it from the Sunset Cliffs is a one of a kind experience. I arrived without too much expectations but, it turned out to be more than what I anticipated. My first initial thought was that I would walk along the cliffs and sightsee. Doing so allowed me to peak over … Continue reading Visiting the Sunset Sea Cliffs, San Diego. (Video)
After checking out of my hotel, I walked around Orange Ave. street for a bit. It was near the hotel and thought it was worth exploring. I found out that they actually had quite a few shops and cafès. I took a break and got a latte at 1134 Coffee shop. Orange Ave. has a ton of stores and restaurants to see but, on this … Continue reading Visiting the Skyline & the Gaslamp District, San Diego.
How’s your first month of this year going so far? It seems for me it’s been on a roller coaster ride juggling between work and trying to fit in that travel life. I’m feeling like there never seem to be enough time which is why I’m looking forward to a much needed 3-Day weekend to hopefully, slow down and relax. Tomorrow we start off with … Continue reading MLK 3-Day Weekend. What Are You Up To?
Soooo, we all made it through the holidays. I know you’re thinking, it’s 2020, a new decade, new goals, new hopes and aspirations blah blah blah. Honestly, I don’t believe in writing down my ‘new years resolution’ because I never follow them but, rather follow through what’s on my mind. Here’s where my hunch tell me to go this year. Singapore: It’s been said that … Continue reading Setting the New Year with Travel Plans.
By far, this is the fastest trip I’ve ever done in my life! When time gives you a window of opportunity, I take full advantage of it and go all in. It might not be the best situation but, this was a trip that has been in the back of my mind for a few years now. Thus, packing in as many places as I could, with the time I was given leaving things a bit crazy. However, I’m having fun anyway and that’s all that matters, right? 🙂 Continue reading “Shifting around D.C.”
My 2nd day in Quebec City was oven status. It was hotter than So. Cal desert weather which, kept me heading back to my hotel room every chance I could to cool off under the a/c all throughout the day. According to the locals, I apparently came during the hottest week they’ve ever had in history. Can someone pour a bucket of ice over my head, like now?

When my plane finally landed in Quebec City airport, I think I may have yelped a little internally. It was definitely quite an adventure just getting here but, I made it. Half asleep and half excited, I breezed through the airport and took a taxi to my B&B hotel. Continue reading “Je Me Souviens”
East coast got me in a bundle. If you’ve ever tried to organize a trip to the east coast coming from California, with a stop over in Canada, on a short time frame and in the middle of summer, well, just call me crazy. Continue reading “Stuck in Toronto, Canada.”
