Things to Eat, Drink, and Do in Kraków

We spent our 4-day Easter weekend (thanks Europe!) exploring a little slice of Poland—road tripping from Berlin to Kraków and back again with Heidi in tow. Unfortunately, the weather decided not to work with us, and our time in Poland was largely gloomy and rainy. On the plus side, that gave us ample excuse to…

A Cape Town Date Night

Imagine. You’re sitting in a patch of sunlight in a garden of almost Biblical beauty. A small stream runs alongside you. The bricks beneath your feet are warm from the heat of the day, but the glass of white wine in your hand is cool. A duck and her ducklings—their soft baby down fuzzing them…

Things to Eat, Drink, and Do in Cape Town

“Is that…raw chicken? On the windshield?” We peered closer. It was the first day of 2018, we’d just come downstairs in search of breakfast and the beach, and it was, indeed, a piece of raw chicken wing between the windshield and the wiper. “Must have been one hell of a weird and wild party,” we…

Just imagine this blaring through the sunkissed, cobbled streets of a century-old village—picture yourself peering through throngs of people, over stalls loaded…

Lonely Planet came out with a fab list of fun and FREE things to do in the City of Light. Can’t think of a better way to spend a fine spring afternoon than reading alongside the Canal St-Martin (#11), checking out an ancient arena at the Arènes de Lutèce (#14), or catching a runway show in the Jardin des Tuileries (#20). And of course, #1 is a MUST.

With my birthday just a week away, I can’t help but remember what was possibly the best birthday present I’ve ever gotten… Samut Sakhon, Thailand: October 2010 A few weeks ago (okay, well, this post is seriously belated, so make that one month ago**), David started asking me what I wanted for my birthday. I…

de Young Museum in Photos

The de Young Museum is one of my favorite places to visit in San Francisco. It’s nestled in Golden Gate Park, which is a great place to explore once you’re done drinking in the art, and which provides a drop-dead gorgeous backdrop for photos taken from the de Young’s Observation Deck. The de Young’s got…
