We’re already 11 days into 2017, so this post is a tad late. I had every intention of posting this a few days before kissing 2016 buh-bye forever, but…yeah… More
While things have been relatively quiet on the blogging front, that doesn’t mean that Jave and I haven’t been doing our fair share of traveling. Earlier this summer, we enjoyed Jave’s golf birthday getaway to Cabo followed by my birthday getaway to Victoria BC which included a quick trip to Seattle. More
I don’t recall ever walking outside of Cartagena’s walls to reach its rough-around-the-edges neighborhood of Gestemaní; somehow, we just wound up there. There weren’t any signs warning us that we were exiting the walled city. Or maybe there were and we were just too distracted by sampling all of the local street food offerings to take notice. More
There are a few reasons why I’ve never been a big fan of downtown Los Angeles: 1) driving downtown is a huge hassle because of all the confusing, one way streets, 2) parking downtown is even worse because of all of the ridiculously priced lots and parking garages, and 3) our downtown isn’t quite on the level of NYC’s or Chicago’s downtown areas which are major, central city hubs. These are just a few reasons why I’ve never felt 100% comfortable whenever I’m downtown. More
Our travels got off to an extremely slow start this year. Apart from a few local weekend getaways earlier in the year, we stayed firmly planted in L.A. for the first three quarters of 2015 with our first trip abroad not taking place until October.

As usual, Jave and I always try to squeeze way too much into our short getaways. This time, it kind of bit us in the butt. After visiting California’s Del Norte Coast, we spent a night in Grants Pass, OR, and the next morning we got up at the crack of dawn to make our way to Crater Lake National Park for the day. More
It seems that every travel blogger and their mama has entered Travel Supermarket’s Capture the Colour 2013 photo competition. And while I’ve been enjoying all of the entries I’ve come across and taking mental notes on how to take better pictures from all of the truly amazing photographers out there, I had no intentions of entering the competition myself.
