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.
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.
Neither of us had ever been to Portland, or Oregon for that matter. We had a 24 hour layover there and were determined to make it count.
Aloha! This the third and final post in my Oahu series. Parts I and II were focused around how you can spend two days of your Hawaiian adventure exploring Waikiki and other smaller towns in Oahu.
For Part II of this Oahu series, we are going to get out of Waikiki, drive east and spend the day driving along the coast all the way up to Bonzai Pipeline - while stopping occasionally for snacks and a swim or two. Make sure you bring your snorkel gear!
