Weekend Bachelorette in Napa

As someone who’s having a destination wedding soon, it only makes sense to continue the theme by having a destination weekend bachelorette in Napa, right? The best part is that my closest friends love to travel as well, so when I brought up the idea of dragging everyone through a California road trip with the main destination of California’s wine county – Napa – everyone was on easily board. But since the drive to Napa from Los Angeles would be…

600FT Underground in Carlsbad Cavern

It never crossed my mind that the United States had something like wonderous caves. But then my friend Anna sent me a list of amazing caves which included Carlsbad Caverns, and then while watching the Planet Earth documentary, it was also featured in their Caves episode.

Kayaking in Lake Tahoe, Day 2

And on to day 2 of our weekend trip. After a good night’s rest and a delicious continental breakfast from South Lake Tahoe’s Holiday Inn Express, we ventured off to explore the Lake Tahoe community.

There are, of course, tons of companies that do kayaking and other water-sport activity rentals surrounding the lake, but our hotel’s front-desk lady suggested we go to this particular one. I forget…

Road Trip to Lake Tahoe, Day 1

 RED ROCK CANYON STATE PARK & MAMMOTH LAKE & MONO BASIN, CALIFORNIA There’s this current Hyatt promotion, you see. This particular promotion made Joseph and I scour the map of the U.S. west coast of the United States to see where the most affordable Hyatt hotel would be, and the closest, as a one-night stay would result in 5,000 hotel points. With the thought of cheap hotel room in mind, this lead us to two clear destinations: in the Palm Springs…

Highlights of Phoenix, Arizona

PHOENIX, ARIZONA Earlier this year, I went to Phoenix, Arizona for the first time to attend a Photography expo. This post is pretty long overdue, and because of that, I actually have spotty memory of the trip (hate when that happens). But I’ll try to sum it up the best I can. To save money, I stayed at Camelbackpackers, a hostel that was fairly close to the convention center. This was my first time staying at a hostel, and I honestly…
