Throwback Thursday: Fiji Honeymoon

I’d never heard of Air Pacific prior to booking our honeymoon flight to Fiji. It seemed like LAX hadn’t, either; our gate was in a forgotten far corner of the antiquated Bradley Terminal, a good half-mile away from the security checkpoint. No big deal, though: after the hot shower I’d had in the airport lounge, the commute was a pleasant way to wind down before the redeye flight. That is, it was leisurely until it was nearly time to board, and I realized I had left my passport behind at security.

Moose are Masters of Disguise

Moose Alley in Pittsburg, NH Moose are big. Really big. Like, 1000 pounds big. As a kid, I had a dog. He was a yellow Labrador. His name was Chewy. He was pretty big. Not moose big, but definitely Labrador big. He didn’t really know his own size, though, and certainly didn’t see any reason []

2011-08 - Hurricane Irene in Killington Vermont

One year ago today: Hurricane Irene in Killington, Vermont

Growing up in Southern California, I was no stranger to natural disasters. I remember the Northridge earthquake clearly, and forest fires forced my friends to evacuate their homes several times over the course of my childhood. None of this prepared me for the destruction that Hurricane Irene brought to Vermont on August 29th, 2011–one year []

Belize: Altun Ha and Lamanai River Trip

In our first 24 hours in Belize, we got to two Mayan ruins sites, Altun Ha and Lamanai. In addition to the obvious historical coolness of Mayan ruins, a cool quality that people may not know is that you’re totally allowed to climb all over them. That would never happen in the States! I realized []

Balboa Park: El Prado, San Diego, CA

This weekend, I visited Balboa Park in San Diego, California for the first time. Wow-what a cool spot! I can’t wait to go back and spend more time there. I spent most of my morning in the park’s El Prado area. Balboa Park Balboa Park is a 1200-acre green space in San Diego, CA. Named for the []

Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

Great Sand Dunes National Park is a real gem of a park, located in southern Colorado. I visited in mid-September, and it had an off the beaten path feel to it, like nobody really knows it’s there; driving in at sunset, I felt like I was being let in on a well-kept secret. Nestled into []

Castillo de San Felipe del Morro, San Juan, Puerto Rico

This day in 2011: El Morro, San Juan, Puerto Rico

A year ago today, five of my best girlfriends accompanied me to San Juan, Puerto Rico for my bachelorette party. Our weekend of food and drink and sunshine was briefly punctuated by an educational trip to the El Morro fort. Its full name is a mouthful–Castillo de San Felipe del Morro–so you can see why []
