I have only been to Japan in the summer and Will has only been in the winter. In need of a vacation, but with limited time, we set our sights on Japan for a week long trip and hopefully in time to see some cherry blossoms.
This December, I took a road trip with the family from LA to Antelope Canyon and the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Although my parents had been to both places multiple times, these sites have been on my bucket list for some time. I hope these photos will inspire you to visit these places as well!
Some know it as the 'City of Angels', others call it 'La-La Land' or 'Tinseltown'. No, I'm not talking about the movie; I'm talking about Los Angeles and here's a long overdue guide to some of my favorite spots if you have a weekend to visit.
So you've decided your next destination is Norway. Among other things, it has fjords for days and so many coffee shops that you will never be too far from your next caffeine fix.
Planning a trip to Norway can be difficult. The country is large and renting a car can get expensive. Here is my suggested itinerary and the buses, ferries and trains that I took to get around during my trip.
This past weekend we had a girl's trip to Vancouver, BC. While the trip was mainly for the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon, it was also a chance to explore a new city. We arrived on Thursday morning and because it was such a short trip, you could say we hit the ground running.
We really loved Seward, but after spending four nights there, we were ready to start heading north to see what other areas of Alaska had to offer.
After months of researching and planning our trip to Alaska, the day had finally come! We spent a hot 24 hours in Portland and boarded our plane to Anchorage. Like two kids on Christmas Day, we were anxious to see what surprises awaited.
When we started packing for Alaska, my biggest concern was whether or not I'd be warm, dry, wind proof, you name it.
