24 HOURS IN SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK

Sequoia are gigantic trees that can be over 200 ft tall and live longer than 3,000 years! However, with all the wildfire/climate changes, we are losing more and more of them. In August 2020, the Castle fire burned about 7K to 10K Sequoia trees which make up 10-14% of the entire population in the world. […]

24 HOURS IN JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK

We got a national park pass last year but had to cancel our trip due to Covid. So this year, we said we had to hit as many national parks as we can. We decided to do a California road trip and check off a couple of national parks. Our first national park stop was […]

72 HOURS IN SAN DIEGO

I’ve been to San Diego when I was younger but only went to Sea World so when my one of my best friends decided to have her bachelorette party in San Diego, I was very excited. I know there were a lot of places that I didn’t get to see and food that I didn’t […]

SEDONA’S SUBWAY CAVE & DEVIL’S BRIDGE

We flew to Arizona for a wedding and stayed an extra couple days to explore. Sedona is known for its beautiful red rock scenery and hiking trails. It’s about a 2-hour drive from Scottsdale so we decided to do a one-day trip. We were ambitious and planned 3 to 4 hikes in one day but […]

AMAZING PLACES TO VISIT & EAT IN ARIZONA

Calvin and I flew over 2,000 miles to Phoenix, AZ for a friend’s wedding in Scottsdale, AZ so we decided to stay a few extra days to explore and eat our way through the state. Florida is known as the sunshine state but Phoenix has an annual average of 300 sunny days which is more […]

KAUAI – THE GARDEN ISLAND

Kauai is known as “the Garden Isle” because of the tropical rainforest that covers most of the island and less than 5 percent of Kauai is commercially developed. It’s the oldest Hawaiian island out of the eight main islands. Multiple movies have been filmed in Kauai including Jurrasic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, Soul Surfer, […]

MAUI – THE VALLEY ISLE

Did you hear that the cheapest car rental in Maui, Hawaii as of March 2021 ran for $722 a day? Tourists end up renting U-Haul trucks and even buying used car to deal with the high rental price. With the travel restrictions, a lot of Americans are traveling within the US and Hawaii is one […]

OAHU

Oahu was one of the three islands that we decided to visit in Hawaii because it has a contrast between the ancient like Kauai and the modern like Maui. To maximize our vacation, we flew right before Thanksgiving and stayed until the first week of December. Right away, we were surprised with Christmas decorations in […]

BALI EATS

Growing up in NYC with access to over 25K restaurants and all types of cuisines, I am surprised that I never tried Indonesian food until I went to Bali. Having gone to Bali twice, you would think I would have tried all their famous dishes but I still haven’t so I listed all the places […]

SOLO TRIP TO BALI

Back in 2015, I had a year long work assignment in Asia, I took advantage of it and did a few solo trips. I decided to go to Bali which is famous as a yoga retreat and honeymoon destination. I was pretty nervous about traveling alone and I traveled alone for work before, but this […]
