This morning JP and I got on a flight to Portland, OR. Just for the record noise canceling head phones are amazing. I don’t think I have ever told you guys this before but when they come around with snacks I always ask for pretzels instead of peanuts. I happened to have a bag of […]

I bet you can guess what we did today. If not here is a clue.  


This morning JP and I hopped on a flight from St Louis to Portland with a short layover in Denver. After we boarded our flight in Denver they told us that because of severe weather in Portland there is a chance our flight might get diverted to another city. I really wanted them to send […]

If you have ever traveled with me then you already know… I am a underpacker. And sometimes (most of the time) I don’t really even pack at all. If I am traveling with JP I will throw a few things in his suitcase, put my makeup bag in my purse and that is it. I […]


Last night JP and I took a late flight from San Antonio, TX to Portland, OR. We almost always stay at Kimpton Hotels and since there are three of them in Portland we tried a different one this time. Check out the view from just outside the doors this morning. Portland is so beautiful. On […]

On our way from St Louis to Nashville yesterday we saw a sign for a town named Metropolis. Yes… there is a town named Metropolis so we had to stop. The first thing I noticed is that the population of Metropolis has declined. But we were able to see Superman. And Clark Kent and Lois […]

I have another day on my own while JP is in his conference and since I have mastered the train and bus system I figured that it’s time to figure out the ferry system. There are lots of different places to go to via the ferry but in my guide book Lamma Island seemed like […]

After Tai O we got back on the bus and they took us back to Ngong Ping Village where we began our walking tour. There is so much to see here and I have so many pictures that it was hard to narrow it down but here goes. Check out this sign showing how far […]

On Saturday morning we flew from San Antonio, TX to San Francisco, CA then to Hong Kong, China. Due to the time change and the International Date Line we landed on Sunday evening around like 7:00 PM. Both of us were so tired that all we wanted to do was go to our hotel room. […]

JP and I flew into San Francisco International Airport this afternoon. We are here because JP has to be at the VMworld conference. Since he travels so much he has racked up quite the status at a few different hotels. The hotel with the best benefits is Kimpton. Every time he checks into a Kimpton […]

This morning I dropped JP off at his meeting and I headed out for a few hours of adventure. What would you do in Norwalk, CT if you have about 4 hours to kill? I don’t know about you… but I would go to the beach. And that is exactly what I did. Calf Pasture […]

This morning we packed up and headed to Lambert-St Louis International Airport for our flight home. One great thing about going to St Louis is that it is always a direct flight. Yay for direct flights and yay for companion passes. Thanks to JP’s companion pass my flights only cost $2.50 per airport that we […]


I have told you guys before that I have the RoadsideAmerica app on my iPhone. I use it all the time to check and see if there is any weird must see attractions around. I have found a ton of stuff in the past if you want to see some of it click here, here, […]
