Back to Cali

Laguna Beach

We are well on our way into 2017 and I am finally getting around to wrapping up my Pacific Northwest trip from the end of last year. Portland, Seattle, Vancouver and now Orange County/Los Angeles! For the past three years, I’ve joined my husband on his annual trip out to Cali. This is a trip he’s been taking for the past 10 years to visit his aunt, uncle, cousins and a high school buddy. Although I’ve been a few times already, this time, we explored a few new places. What has remained a constant on these visits is Laguna Beach. We are truly lucky to be guests at his aunt and uncle’s place, where this beach is not too far of a walk. This was the most relaxing part of our trip – the perfect ending.

Portland’s been on my list since I read an article in a food magazine about its food scene a few years back. That plus anyone who’s been to Portland always tell me how much they loved visiting. After reading travel blogs and getting recommendations from our friends, here’s my list of Portland faves.

A very good friend of mine tied the knot this past weekend in Winnipesaukee, NH (congrats Caitlin and Ezra #MoniztoMoses!). But before all that went down, we celebrated her bachelorette in Saratoga Springs, NY. It was my first trip there as well as my first visit to the race tracks. I’ll give you a quick rundown of what I learned at the tracks, where we dined and where we partied. So here goes.
