A Blonde’s Guide to San Francisco

Ahh, San Francisco. One of my favorite cities in the whole world. If you have never been, add it to your bucket list. Here is a list of must do and see things while in San Francisco. Walk across, under, and around the Golden Gate Bridge. Yes, do all three, it’s majestic from all angles. Hike up Lombard Street! By hike, I mean climb… that hill will have you out of breath and crawling to the top before you know it, but look at the view at the top! You can’t leave San Francisco without taking the Ferry to Alcatraz. …

Posts I love:

If my mom’s English was good enough and she read this post, she would probably not talk to me for a long time. My mother-in-law lovingly called us “traveling fools.” And I get it. I am sure their generation in general grew up on different values. House, car, furniture, jewelry and savings were all of […] via 5 Reasons Why I Invest in Travel, Not Things — Travel With Nano B.

Fall in The Hamptons: A 24 hour tour guide.

Hello Blondies! The fiancé and I just got back from a quick getaway to The Hamptons. We were there for 2 days in the “off-season” so I thought I’d put together an itinerary for anyone who decides to take a quick day trip if you’re ever in the area and need an idea of what to do since it’s too cold for the beach and most businesses are closed for the season.

8 Items to Never Travel Without

From my experience in traveling, the airplane ride is the worst part. I have found 8 items that I always take with me on an airplane, especially when flying abroad. These items are my carryon essentials. 1. Snacks Snacks purchased at the airport or on the plane are severely over priced. It is not necessary to spend $5 for mini can of Pringles which won't even keep you satisfied for very long. My favorite snacks to bring on an airplane are protein bars/granola bars, almonds, and of course chocolate.   2. Hand sanitizer  This is a must, especially when traveling abroad. Airplanes are breeding …

A Maui Vacation

In case you didn't already know, I love to travel. My most recent trip was to Maui in early May.  My aunt randomly called me in early January and asked if I wanted to go with her and her husband to Maui because she had a business trip. Of course I said "yes". Who wouldn't want a free trip to Hawaii? I was born in Hawaii and I was very excited to go back. Anyway, I called my boyfriend, Andy, and told him we would be going to Hawaii in May and he was overjoyed. He had never been to Hawaii …
