Crossing the Pacific

The itinerary I had printed a day earlier from UNITED was becoming worn before I even boarded my flight from SFO to Narita, Japan. Yes. Narita. I had learned the day before my trip that the flight that was booked for me from San Francisco to Bangkok was not actually a flight from San FranciscoContinue reading “Crossing the Pacific”

Drink your water … and other tips to survive a Vegas Vacation

Editors Note: This post was not intended for my site. I wrote it because I accepted a bid on TextBrokers.com, a site which unites writers with those who need writing. I submitted it, was paid for it, and then saw someone else had actually taken credit for my words.

The San Francisco Foodgasm: Off the Grid

Living in Las Vegas means there are tons of amazing food options. You name it, we’ve got it. Five-star restaurants. Michelin rated. Celeb chefs with numerous outlets across town. But, what we don’t have a lot of is food trucks. Yes, there are some. Las Vegas has, what you could say, a burgeoning street foodContinue reading “The San Francisco Foodgasm: Off the Grid”

A Virgin America Virgin

I could see the purple glow before I even got close to the door of the plane. Oh, sweet Virgin America airplane. How I have waited for you. Slowly, slowly, we crawled in our line to the cabin door. Sparkles!! The exterior of the airplane is glittery white! I crossed into the cabin, surveying theContinue reading “A Virgin America Virgin”

I need an airplane ride

After my trip in May to Maryland, I had convinced myself I needed one more visit to see my family and friends before Thanksgiving. May to late November was simply too long to go without a Family Fix. I hemmed and hawed for a bit, deciding dates, asking work if I could have a quickContinue reading “I need an airplane ride”

A different kind of addiction

So, it’s been nine months since I returned to America. And, I have a confession: I am starting to freak out knowing that I’ve been living a stationary existence for nearly one year. It scares the hell out of me. More and more I have been feeling waves of panic wash over me as myContinue reading “A different kind of addiction”

The Las Vegas Foodgasm: Wicked Spoon

Katie and I wandered through the ¬†halls of Cosmopolitan’s second floor, en route to Wicked Spoon, passing by tourists posing inside of larger-than-life shoes and walls adorned with art. We were on a mission: stuff our faces with good eats at the hotel’s much-praised buffet, Wicked Spoon. I’ve already confessed, I’m no foodie, but ¬†afterContinue reading “The Las Vegas Foodgasm: Wicked Spoon”

The Las Vegas Foodgasm: An Introduction

I have a confession: I am not a foodie. Foie gras does not make me weak in the knees. It is only recently that I have developed a taste for cheese (and it’s got to be really bougie cheese at that) and steak (same deal … has to be super good). Hell, to be quiteContinue reading “The Las Vegas Foodgasm: An Introduction”

Interview: Adrenaline Living

I had the pleasure today of being interviewed by Angelia Miller on her Adrenaline Living Talk Show. It’s my first interview, and quite a change from being the person pitching to the person being interviewed. If you have the time, give it a listen. It’s insight into quitting your job, traveling and my experiences travelingContinue reading “Interview: Adrenaline Living”
