It’s pretty well known that San Diego is an extremely dog friendly city, so to celebrate the end of my college career and the start of summer we decided it was time to take our English Bull Terrier, Kona, on her first vacation! Aside from a quick day trip to Yosemite this was Kona’s longest road trip […]
Stadium Stories | 2019 All Star Game
You’ve heard it time and time again, but I am a huge hockey fan (shocker!) I was fortunate enough to grow up in a household that’s had San Jose Sharks season tickets longer than they’ve had me, so we get a few perks within the franchise from time to time. 27 years of loyalty got […]
Prost Like A Pro!
I’m German. Well, at least ancestry.com says so. Like a century back my family immigrated to the US through Ellis Island and here I am today, a California girl who loves both beer and pretzels, so I’d say that calls for an appropriate Oktoberfest celebration, right?? *watch the comments for my Aunt Janie to come […]
That’s From Disneyland!
GUYS I don’t even have time to come up with a proper intro to this post because the event is for such a limited time! If you’re from the greater Los Angeles area (and a Disney fan, but who isn’t) you have to check out the That’s From Disneyland exhibit in Sherman Oaks. Until end of August, […]
Feelin’ Like Trailer Trash
Something really intriguing to me and my hospitality student mind is alternative lodging. Don’t get me wrong, hotels are super great — a clean shower, starched sheets and wiped-down TV remote — but when I plan a trip I prefer to seek out a place to stay that really reflects where I am. So without […]
Watching For Crossing Dinos
One of those classic “totally American” things my home country features is bizarre roadside attractions. The world’s largest ball of yarn, Confusion Hill, a meteor crater in Arizona and Mount Rushmore. Some are more tailored to children, others for adults, but the Cabazon Dinosaurs are the perfect attraction for all! Any good Coachella or Stagecoach trip […]
Keep Mojave Weird
I may not be sure how to pronounce Yucca Valley (Yuck-uh or Yoo-kah??), but I do know that making a visit next time you’re on Highway 62 is a given. Other questionable things about this place…everything. Teeeeechnically everything to see is spread out between the towns of Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree and Twentynine Palms, but they’re […]
Another Glorious Sierra Day
Trigger warning to all Californians and nature junkies: you are now entering a non-nature lover zone… more specifically, the zone of my dislike for Yosemite. Please leave your pitchforks at the door and read on before judging. As a Californians do, I have visited Yosemite three times, and had personal issues each trip. So, after a ten […]
One of the best parts about working in the Hospitality industry (actually, it’s the reason I chose this major!) is all the amazing places you get to visit. After a full day at the LA Convention Center with the Medical Tourism Convention, I hopped to the other side of LA Live and had the privilege […]
What is Medical Tourism?
Alright, eager learners, let’s break down the term “Medical Tourism”. It’s actually not nearly as intimidating as it sounds: medical needs + traveling for them= medical tourism! Have you ever considered going to Mexico for less expensive dental work, or India for a heart surgery at a lower cost and shorter wait time? What about […]
