My Quick Guide to San Francisco, CA

My Quick Guide to San Francisco, CA

One of my most anticipated cities yet was San Francisco! My mother told me she had been in this city once before when she was eighteen with a friend of hers in the early 90s. She told me all about her own little adventures from decades ago. I thought about her as a late teen discovering the city on her own as people in different styled clothing listen to very different music around her.  We arrived really late into the…

5 Secret Epcot Tips (Walt Disney World)

5 Secret Epcot Tips (Walt Disney World)

As I previously stated in a post, Disney World is one of my favorite places in the world and because of this I have made myself a little bit of an expert from decades spent visiting the parks and living in Orlando for five of those years.  Epcot is always stated second to Magic Kingdom and although it doesn’t have nearly as many rides there are still tons of things to do in the park and I have some great…

Pacific Coast Sunsets in San Diego, CA

Pacific Coast Sunsets in San Diego, CA

I’ve been in California before but I was only six years old, so it had been about fifteen years and it was hard to remember the things I had seen that long ago. However, when we arrived to southern California, there were no shortages of palm trees, beaches and an ocean I wasn’t familiar with.  Within a few days, I quickly fell in love with the So Cal ways and their endless views of mountains, which is sadly lacking in…

My USA Road Trip Playlist!

My USA Road Trip Playlist!

I am currently reading On The Road by Jack Kerouac. As I left Texas and headed west for the first time I read the beautifully written words “I was halfway across America, at the dividing line between the East of my youth and the West of my future.” I felt that way as a new scenery started to unfold before me. I saw thousands of miles I had only seen in films or pictures and there was the aura of…

Vintage Spanish Vibes in San Antonio, Texas

Vintage Spanish Vibes in San Antonio, Texas

The next stop on the epic road trip was San Antonio. Although the drive was short from Houston, the scenery of the city seemed to change drastically. On the first night there, I wander down to the River Walk, which as the name depicts has a river running through a series of restaurants and shops that would stay open late into the night.  Although it was late, crowds of people were enjoying drinks and sharing laughs on that Tuesday night….

Learning in Houston, Texas

Learning in Houston, Texas

We arrived to Houston, Texas in the middle of a Saturday, hungry for crawfish. Because Houston is close to the Louisianna Border, I managed to find Carl’s Crawfish restaurant which was coincidentally only opened during the weekend and was packed to the max. After waiting nearly an hour, I finally got to see what the hype was about and let me tell you, the crawfish was worth the wait.  While drinking some beer and figuring out how to break open…

Millions of visitors come to Orlando every year. These tourists are always on the hunt for cool things to see outside of the theme parks. City Walk has always been a place for guests to enjoy a stroll around the many restaurants and shops the area has. Many things have changed for CityWalk in the last ten years, but it’s still as entertaining as it’s always been.  Although it doesn’t cost anything to just walk around and enjoy City Walk,…

The Power of Rest: Panama City Beach, FL

The Power of Rest: Panama City Beach, FL

What comes to your mind when you think of Panama City Beach (PCB)? Is it southern accents and calming seas? Or does your mind wander to crazy stories about college kids getting drunk on a beach? Arriving to PCB a few weeks before the mayhem was strange, mostly because of how calm the entire town is. During this low season, many retired folk and frequent visitors, northerners escaping the cold, manage to find tranquility overlooking the empty beach to a…
