Chicago has been pretty high on my domestic to-visit list for some time now, so when I was able to snag a ~$350 roundtrip flight out of the Bay Area for a holiday weekend, I jumped on that just about as fast as I could.
snacking through seattle
A few months back I was fortunate enough to find super cheap round trip flights to Seattle and got to visit the city again with my dear friend, Elizabeth. Behold: a snacking blog like I’ve never written before. A completely different travel experience thanks to the presence of an extra stomach and ~48 hours in […]
3 days in Portland
This long weekend trip is brought to you by expiring personal leave and features special guest (and college roommate) Sydney! About a month ago, I threw out the idea of heading up to Portland—and much to my pleasant surprise—she was totally down.
3 days in Seattle
Back again with a long weekend getaway, this time in the emerald city.
3 days in Washington DC
Weeks after returning from my January trip to NYC, I bought a plane ticket to Washington DC for Cesar Chavez/Easter weekend. I don’t have a particular reason why I chose DC out of all of the domestic destinations available—my mom jokes it’s because I felt deprived by not being able to go on an 8th […]

On January 31, 2018, I woke up at 5:20AM to ogle at the moon. 5:25AM: I was super glad to have had the forethought to set up my camera and tripod the night before, so when I inevitably woke up later than planned, I was able to run out into my front yard and set up […]
3 days in New York City
I’m not a huge fan of new year’s resolutions, but this year, I decided to make a few for myself to try and motivate positive change in the way I process daily life. One of my resolutions is to be more mindful, and includes practices like journalling, reading more, and regularly practicing yoga. The other […]
rainbow salt flats
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve passed Bedwell Bayfront Park on my way up the peninsula. Over a hundred acres of land with 2.3 miles of flat trail overlooking infamously pungent marshland never particularly appealed to me—until today.
Yesterday the US celebrated 241 years of independence since the OG Brexit. One of the most common ways us Americans like to celebrate this day is with fireworks, one of the flashiest displays of militaristic nationalism known to mankind. The biggest show in the Bay Area launches from Pier 41 in San Francisco, so naturally, […]
