Looking back, I would say this is probably one of the best trips of my life hands down. There wasn’t one minute during this trip where I was upset, seriously! And I was with THREE other girls; you would think some dumb argument is bound to occur but that didn’t even happen! This trip all started with me wanting to go back to Hawaii because I am Hawaii-obsessed. In December of last year, I asked my friend Gina if she would be down to go back to Kona, in which she said she was. A couple weeks later, she told me she wouldn’t be able to go, so the search for another Hawaii buddy was on. This is where Michelle comes in. Michelle and I have been friends for well over four years now, and she’s truly one of the sweetest girls I know. We weren’t that good of a… View Post

New Orleans is the second to last city on my U.S destination list, and I am SO happy I got to check off this city on my list. We got into New Orleans at 1 AM, and our Airbnb host was so kind to let us in at 2 AM and show us what we needed to know when we finally got to her house. We woke up the next morning ready to explore the city, and ended up catching the bus over at the University of New Orleans which took us to the French Quarter. The French Quarter was beyond what I imagined. The architecture of the homes there are so beautiful; the balconies were stunning and the homes were painted so colorfully and decorated with pots of flowers left and right. The French Quarter itself is bustling, but not in the NYC kind of way. It’s more settle,… View Post

I wish I had more to say about my second trip to Miami, but I didn’t dare venture out outside my comfort zone while I was there. It was also a very short trip— trust me when I say you need more than 2.5 days in Miami. Since the trip was so short, I only was able to get a few photos, so my apologies for the lack of visual content! Thank goodness I was only there just 5 months ago! I promise you’ll find my original Miami post (which you can find here) much more humorous and entertaining. However, I did have a wonderful time in Miami the second time around. I met my friend Natalie and her friend Joe at the Miami airport (they flew in a few days prior to my arrival date), and we headed to Fort Lauderdale to grab some lunch before heading to the beach.

Chicago. Oh man, WHAT A WEEKEND. It’s fun to start at the beginning, right? Gina and I booked our tickets to Chicago in early January, meaning we planned this trip three weeks prior to us flying out. It was the shortest trip I’ve ever been on, and most of this trip happened way too fast for me to remember everything clearly. But I am going to do my best to document it because Chicago was hands down one of the best and funniest three days of my life. We arrived in Chicago at 8pm on Friday, January 29th, and it was cold for us California girls! But we braved it anyway, taking the public transportation system like champs before turning in our champ cards and ordering an Uber. I remember stepping out of the bus and into the beauty of downtown Chicago— what a sight! It was like New York, but… View Post

Miami. Man oh man, where do I begin with Miami? First off, let me mention that I wrote this post back in January but never got around to posting it! So please excuse the three month tardiness.  Miami made my heart so happy and I’ve thought about that eccentric city ever since I came back to San Diego. Lets start with day 1. Actually, lets start with the damn freaking airport. STORY TIME. So, in order to get to Miami, we had to take three connecting flights. San Diego to LAX, LAX to Atlanta, and Atlanta to Miami. Sounds like a pain, but if I wanted to get there by 9 AM, we had to do it so we did. BUT THEN. Our airline decided it was chill if they were an hour late with our connecting flight to LAX, and our Atlanta flight would be leaving approximately 15 minutes… View Post
