The Sutro Baths Ruins and Lands End Lookout

Our original plan for the day was to go to park our car near the Golden Gate Bridge then find breakfast nearby, then go walk the Golden Gate Bridge and Crissy Fields. Instead I made a wrong turn and ended up heading west into the Richmond District. So we decided to go The Sutro Baths […]

Southernmost Point of Continental Asia Palawan Beach Sentosa

We walked from the Sentosa Merlion to Palawan Beach to the Southernmost Point of Continental Asia. I remembered (sort of) going here in during my very first visit to Singapore in 2006 and thought that it would be a nice quick stop to actually cross the swinging suspension bridge. It’s a free thing to do […]

Venice Beach For An Afternoon in the Sun (Los Angeles Weekend Trip – part 1)

Los Angeles Weekend Trip – part 1 I go on day trips from San Diego to Los Angeles or Orange County all the time. It’s usually less than 2 hours away and makes for a nice little getaway and often good food (Asian food). I recently drove up to Los Angeles with my boyfriend (BH) […]

Terrigal, NSW Australia

Australia – Day 11 (Part 3) Instead of hanging out at The Entrance auntie took us to one of her favorite beach. So we headed south along the coast to Terrigal. Auntie fondly referred to this place as 天涯海角 which means “the ends of the earth” and really does bring a very different view compared […]

Brighton Beach and the Colorful Bathing Boxes

Melbourne – Day 5 – Part 1. We took the train from Flinders Station to Bright Beach Station and then walked all the way Brighton Beach and the colorful bathing boxes. According to Google Maps, it’s a 1.6km 16-20 minute walk from Brighton Beach Station to Brighton Beach and the colorful bathing boxes.

Manly Beach: Christmas Trees at the Beach?

Sydney Day 2 – Part 3 After a quick stop for pictures outside of Luna Park, we continued on towards Manly Beach. We were basically getting the famous Sydney beaches checked off of our things to do and see list in Sydney. When I asked what the biggest difference between Bondi and Manly Beach, Auntie […]

OB Ocean Beach San Diego: Hodad’s, Pier, Tuna Crabs on the Beach

There are a number of amazing and beautiful beaches in San Diego from Torrey Pines to La Jolla to Mission Beach. I honestly have never really considered checking out Ocean Beach (OB), mainly because it is a bit far for me compared to all of the other beaches. Unlike the other beaches, OB is home to […]

My Big Island Hawaii Itinerary

Hawaii Island is the youngest but the biggest island of the Hawaiian Archipelago, and is therefore know as the “Big Island.” With less than six days, we managed to drive all the way around it after arriving on the Kona side and leaving from the Hilo side. We barely managed to experienced a little bit […]

My Oahu Hawaii Itinerary

My 2014 trip was an 8 night 9 day 2 island Hawaii vacation (and to attend my cousins wedding on the Big Island). With just a little over a week in Hawaii, it was going to be a tight trip if we wanted to visit more than 1 island. But because this was going to […]

Waipi'o Valley Lookout

Waipi’o Valley Lookout

Big Island – Day 4 – Part 2 Someone told me it was the Grand Canyon of Hawaii and worth a look. Waipi’o Valley is about one mile across and over five miles deep, and surrounded by cliffs up to 2000 feet high. The valley is a beautiful lush green and is considered to be […]
