Six Places on My International Travel Bucket List

I have wanderlust on a typical day, but being stuck inside and not really knowing when we can travel again has intensified it. I’m hoping (fingers crossed) for a fall vacation to Boston and up the coast to Maine this year, but kind of playing that by ear and waiting to see how the virus spread goes before hopping on a flight. But since I’m over here dreaming about the day I can start checking […]

Redwoods, Crater Lake & the Oregon Coast

For the final leg of our trip, we left San Francisco and headed up the 101 until cutting over to make a stop at Ft. Bragg.

Exploring San Francisco

With as much traveling as I’ve done, you’d think I would have already visited San Francisco! But it was one major U.S. city that had escaped me over the years, so when planning our Highway 1 trip, I made sure to include a couple days for exploring this beautiful northern California city. For our two night stay in the Bay Area, I booked a super cool vintage airstream! The couple that owns it lives on […]
