La Mercè Festival in Barcelona

We went to Barcelona in mid-September during the La Mercè festival.  The streets were full of people out celebrating, and there were free public concerts and events everywhere.  It’s the biggest party of the year, and a great time to visit! Walking home from dinner one night, we stumbled across a very strange parade. After some internet-ing […]

A Day in Fez, Morocco

We only had one day in Fez so we tried to make the most of it.  Fez has the oldest medina in the world, and has hardly changed since the city was founded in the 8th century.  The medina is full of tiny stone-paved twisty streets that you can get lost in almost immediately. We […]

Into the Sahara Desert

We obviously had to ride camels at some point!  We booked a tour from Marrakech -there are a million tours, and they looked about the same- for three days, two nights.  It was a twelve hour drive to get to the Sahara, and we tormented our patient driver Khalid the whole way.  To be fair, […]

White Rocks Hike, Utah

One of my all-time favorite hikes is in St. George, Utah, about a mile away from my dad’s house.  Southern Utah is full of breathtaking scenery and great hiking.  While Zion and the larger national parks are more famous, there are some great spots right by the town of St. George.  This hike is at […]

Lemonade

Lemonade is one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles.  It’s cheap, fast, and delicious.  And fairly healthy (unless you get the mac and cheese, like I always do).  Lemonade restaurants have been popping up all over Los Angeles, there’s one on Abbot Kinney in Venice just a couple blocks away from my house. It’s […]

Once Upon a Time in Mexico

We flew into Cancun, did some island exploring, then went to Playa del Carmen and Tulum.  The beaches are all perfect white sand with bright turquoise water.

Sydney ✈ Cairns 🚂 Cape Tribulation ⛵ Whitsunday Islands 🚐 Brisbane. Obligatory opera house viewing (not pictured, too boring), some fun in Cairns, a train up to hiking-beaching-waterfalls in Cape Tribulation, some sailing around the Whitsunday islands, and a trip to the zoo! An illustrated activity guide 😂 : Kuranda Scenic Railroad This pretty little train winds it way up through spectacular scenery, ending […]

Calf Creek Falls Hike | Southern Utah

Calf Creek falls is in the Grand Staircase/Escalante area of Southern Utah, in one of the most scenic parts of a very scenic state.  You’re surrounded by towering red and white Navajo sandstone formations as you hike in to the large (for the desert!) waterfall. How to get there: It’s a little out of the way…unless […]
