Van Camping! Kern River to Yosemite, California!

What are you going to do this weekend? Spend another night at the bar you go to every Saturday? Or maybe you’ll find a new bar to go to and get annoyed by the gentrification going on in your previously super cool and quiet neighborhood? Aww, there’s nothing to do, you think. But what if I told you, especially you, fellow Los Angeleans, that you can stand under the tallest waterfall in the country this weekend…you...

Van Camping! Big Sur, California

A few weeks ago, my friend and I traveled up the coast of California, without an agenda, but only a final location in mind. Big Sur is about 6.5 hours away from Los Angeles, by mini-van, and the coastline of the park itself is 89 miles. We didn’t know that last part.

No, seriously, F the diet.

Make the Most of Your Time in Maui – Travel Tips

Considering that this is all just my opinion, please consider the following. 1. Don’t drive the Road to Hana. Okay, I slightly regret the fact that I didn’t get to see any black sand beaches. I slightly regret the fact that I didn’t get to bathe in a waterfall that crested at the top of a green cliff and pummeled down into a crystal clear bathing cove. What I don’t regret is sitting in a car for 3 hours to see...

Traveler Alert: Airfare Scam to Avoid

We lost two thousand dollars on a dream vacation through a reputable website that you all probably use. I had a trip all planned out. I’d travel out to Melbourne, Australia for the first week of my boyfriend’s Australian tour. We booked tickets online through Kayak.com (the reputable website) and I had even splurged into getting us two tickets to see the penguins up close, on the beach, on Phillip Island. I’ve never...
