Journey to Thailand

thailand journey

Not too long ago, a group of friends and I headed to Thailand for a 2-week adventure. Having never traveled to Asia, the trip was incredibly eye-opening and tons of fun. It also cured my travel bug (for the time being) and renewed my love of Asian food.   The flight time was about 10 hours, with a layover in Tokyo and Bangkok but, with a slew of movies, the overall journey wasn’t too bad. The hardest part was stopping in Bangkok for the night,…

Double Jaw Surgery Recovery: Day 1

These past 6 weeks have been some of the most mentally and physically challenging in my life and I have a completely new respect for anyone going through the surgery and recovery process. In short, it’s awful! And so taxing. And just thinking about it all makes me wanna switch to Netflix and finish House of Cards. But I relent. Here’s a brief recap of my recovery and what I’ve been up to the past 6 weeks. Fair warning, it includes a lot of Netflix…

Double Jaw Surgery

Taking a slight detour from the fun and light things to delve into my planned double jaw surgery this Thursday which, will likely occupy the next three to six months of my life. I’ve had a lot of mixed emotions over the past three weeks about it, going from calm to frantic to emotional meltdown the next. Having never even been into major surgery, there’s some slight apprehension about that aspect, as well as the whole, “your face is going to look different” for the rest…

Cancun Thai Lounge

If you go anywhere in Cancun to eat, then I definitely recommend the Cancun Thai Lounge. Complete with impressive views and docks that mimic the views of Thailand. Margaritas all around.

Royal Solaris Cancun

This would be the face of a very excited individual bound for Cancun! Well, aside from the very serious business of looking at apps. But aside from that, the excitement was practically oozing. Me and the boy headed to Cancun to Royal Solaris Cancun for some sun and relaxation. A little flight snack. I get pretty anxious during flights so this helps to soothe the nerves somewhat. Don’t worry, I shared. 😉   When we arrived, we were greeted with a drink from the staff,…

Copper Mountain Ski Trip

Over the Christmas break, I headed out east to Copper to meet the boy’s family and for a quick ski trip. After picking me up super late at night, we trekked back through the mountains in the middle of what felt like a blizzard. This was the point where I was supposed to keep him up for the long two hour drive with my lively chatter but after about an hour of just staring out the window into whiteness, I promptly fell asleep. And was…

New Year’s Resolutions

Travel image

Admittedly, it’s been a while since blogging so I’m making a New Year’s resolution to blog at least once a week something big or small. We’ll see how this little experiment goes… I like the promise of new years resolutions to do more, try something different or just make an effort to be a better you. The good thing about this year is it’s going to be filled with a lot of adventures to Thailand, San Francisco and many more! Some of my other resolutions…

Mt.Baldy Hike

Me and the boy set out for the weekend to Mount Baldy, determined to leave all our worries behind. Lady Pup enjoyed it immensely. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so happy! She was an excellent little trail dog and spent a lot of time chasing squirrels and sniffing around. Meanwhile me and the boy were discussing the negatives and positives of buying a fan so late in the season. Boy: I sweat every night at your place. You need to get a fan.…

Malibu Wine Safari

Malibu Wine Farm

Malibu Wine Safari When the event of my birthday came rolling around, I knew I wanted to do something different and not-standard of the typical birthday going out activities. I opted for something a little more personal and intimate with just a few close family members and the boy, in hopes that it would make me forget the slow, dawning realization that I was getting older. And likely have wrinkles the day after. We set out for Malibu to Paradise Beach Cove Cafe for an…

Catalina Island

Catalina Island

  It’s difficult to mention a day at Catalina without saying, “It’s the f&ck*ng Catalina Wine Mixer!” And while there was no Will Ferrell singing Josh Groban tunes or even a wine mixer, the day was still filled with plenty of good things. A good majority followed by one of us in the group saying, “It’s the Catalina Wine Mixer!” just for good effect. For those who don’t know the reference, I strongly recommend you watch Step Brothers right this instant and thank me later. The…
