A complete guide to our long weekend in Washington D.C.
We were lucky to enjoy a trip to Maui and the food was absolutely divine! As I anxiously awaited our trip I scrolled foodie instagram accounts like Yelp Maui and Consuming Maui as I daydreamed of fresh poke and endless seafood. I bookmarked interesting places and took recommendations from friends, I probably could have stayed […]
With the continuation of COVID, we really wanted to stay within the United States while feeling like we were on an exotic tropical vacation. And Maui provided just that. I know there’s a lot of back and forth about traveling to Hawaii, my advice? Only travel if you’re vaccinated for the safety of yourself and […]
So, I am thinking I am going to start titling all my travel articles “Passport to…” Do we think that’s cute? I was thinking about my blog branding and how I could improve and I’m hoping that Passports & Papers still makes sense. If you’ve never read about the blog, it’s name, or me you […]
Or course, all our major plans for 2020 were canceled. Like our June trip to Peru and a family visit to Paris to see Henri’s grandparents. But, what really led us to the beachside town of Carlsbad?

Like the rest of the world our travel plans for 2020 were canceled. I couldn’t take much more of being home and to be honest, I was feeling major burnout from working remotely. I knew I needed a few days to disconnect and get outside. Luckily for me, I live in California which is home […]
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 […]
