I’ve always been obsessed with maps and learning more about the world. I’m still proud of the fact that I was the only second grader in my class to get 100% on the US maps test. After college Henri and I started planning an internal trip each year. First we went to Mexico, which I […]
Need to plan a quick trip from LA or the OC? Look south to San Diego.
Henri is from Orange County and works there, so we spend a lot of time in the OC. I grew up going to Newport Dunes as a kid so you can say we’re local experts. Since I do spend a lot of time there I thought I would introduce you to a new section of […]
Joshua Tree is just a short car ride away, depending on where you are in SoCal. For us in Los Angeles, it’s only about 2 hours away. This desert national park is great for hiking, rock climbing, and star gazing. We don’t rock climb, but it was neat to see other visitors making their way […]

I had my quinceañera (the Hispanic equivalent to a sweet sixteen) at Disneyland Hotel. I even worked for The Walt Disney Company as an intern […]

The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is a fun way to spend a sunny afternoon. I had been once before maybe 10 years ago, I didn’t remember how big it was and at that time the Japanese Garden was down for renovations. The Chinese and Japanese gardens were by far my favorite part. […]
We love to travel and have been to five countries in the last four years while being full-time employees. But, we haven’t taken advantage of what’s right in our backyards. Sometimes we take for granted that we’re SoCal natives and look elsewhere on the map to satisfy our wanderlust. Planning a road trip seems daunting […]
