A Long Weekend in Cabo San Lucas

I recently got back from a trip to Cabo San Lucas, a short two hour flight from San Diego yet a world away in terms of mindset. We originally planned to stay for five days (four nights) but Hurricane Newton, […]

Vegan Dining Getaway in Los Angeles

My wife and I recently took a three-day vacation up to Los Angeles, a mere 2 hour drive from San Diego (when traffic cooperates, anyway). It rained nearly all weekend which foiled a lot of our plans to go hiking and exploring outdoors, so we really dug in to find the best vegan restaurants in L.A. to try out. Both my wife and I have been vegan for a little over 2 years (and vegetarian over a decade) and while we love the vegan dining scene in San Diego, Los Angeles blew us away with both the sheer number of great vegan restaurants, as well as the quality & originality of places to go. I made a thorough list of places I wanted to try before the trip began, and we didn’t have a chance to try them all but I thought I would at least share some of the highlights from the 10+ vegan establishments we did get the fortune of trying since every single one of them was worth trying again.

A Long Weekend in Cabo San Lucas

2016-09-04-16-09-57

I recently got back from a trip to Cabo San Lucas, a short two hour flight from San Diego yet a world away in terms of mindset. We originally planned to stay for five days (four nights) but Hurricane Newton, a Category 2 storm, hit Cabo on our last night shutting down the airport and forcing us to stay a little longer. Ultimately we welcomed our extended vacation as the storm passed pretty quickly allowing us to get back outside to enjoy the beach and pool, although in hindsight you really only need about a weekend in Cabo San Lucas to really take it all in.

Flying Virgin America

virgin_america_banan_republic_1797767_d

I flew Virgin America for the first time today for one of my semi-regular trips from San Diego to San Francisco. Normally I fly US Airways or Southwest, but Virgin was actually the cheapest option and I had been wanting to try them out, so I gave it a whirl as they advertise as having one of the best traveling experiences. Ultimately other than nicer seats with outlets, Virgin is much like any other airline, just with a little more lipstick on the pig that is the American flying experience.

Palace of Westminster from the dome on Methodist Central Hall v2

When people think about traveling to England, the first things that come to mind are typically the sights and landmarks. The whole country is filled with them: ancient castles, picturesque countryside, historic churches, and an endless array of burial sites, museums, monuments, and much more. You can easily fill a whole trip to England with a guidebook directing you to the sights you’re most interested in, whether that means Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, or a tour of major castles from the country’s history.

Naples is Italy’s third largest city and home to some of the best food in all of Italy – while it’s a less common tourist destination compared to more popular cities like Rome, Florence, or Capri, there are lots of great gems the city has to offer. Located in Southern Rome, it is best to avoid summer when visiting as it can get very hot and humid, with Spring and Fall being the best times to explore. Whether you plan to stay for just a day or your entire holiday, Naples has plenty to offer and is just two hours south of Rome if you plan to continue your journey from here, and best of all there are plenty of cheap hotels in Naples that will make your stay easy on the wallet, too.
