Oahu: Island Paradise

There is nothing quite like stepping off a plane and arriving at one of your favorite places in the world. For me, that place is Oahu, Hawaii, an island paradise. The first time I visited Oahu in 2008, I knew I would eventually move to the island. It took years before I finally relocated, but […]

Yosemite National Park

There is no place like it. With 1,200 square miles of iconic landscapes, waterfalls, valleys, meadows and giant sequoias, one visit to Yosemite National Park isn’t enough.

Visiting the Channel Islands Harbor

Whenever I’m home, I always visit the Channel Islands Harbor to play, eat and say hello to the sea lions. There are so many good restaurants with different cuisines, but my all time favorite thing to do here is to spend time by the water.  You can kayak, stand up paddle board, or hang out […]
