Moving more south, we reached the smaller town of Cambria, that had such a strong flavor of small South African West Coast town, that I felt homesick. The sea water was just as cold and the trees told me it could be just as windy. I loved walking this beautiful boardwalk and even got to […]

What I love about traveling are the things that you get to learn along the way and not necessarily visiting places you already know about because of their history or any other remarkable feat that makes them stand out. This was my experience with Monterey and its Cannery Row, thus named after a novel written […]

San Francisco

A dreamy place, huddled in a blanket of fog that comes and goes at it pleases. One day there is not enough – what were we thinking – but if you have one day only, you make the most of it. It helps if you are up at six and ready to rock and roll, […]

Nobody’s perfect. Sigh.

I’ve come to realize I might be the worst food blogger out there. Between the husband and myself, we have to remind ourselves to take photos before we start devouring our food. Most of my photos here were taken a few bites down and the best photos were taken by the hubby. Sorry folks, but I’m […]

New York, New York!

The thing with New York is that she’s no stranger. She’s seen on the screen so often; you feel you have developed a personal long-distance relationship with her. And yet, after a whole week in New York, I feel like I hardly know this city at all. It’s tough to scrape the surface on this […]

Nothing like a little wurst…

Nothing beats Curry Wurst and Sauerkraut from the Saturday morning street market close to Times Square. Inner city roads are closed for the day to make way for huge […]

We are all linguists here.

Some phrases we’ve coined since our launch: Commercial Soothing: when you – in desperation – buy a toy for the other child just to get through with the day (because the birthday child might have gotten a gift or two, and the other one’s lip is consequently sweeping the New York pavement). Yuk. Toy Store […]

Ha. Disney World.

Ha. Disney World. What can I say: so much fun to be had, but you also reach the point where you Just. Can’t. Do. Another. Ride. After our six-day intensive, which the kids loved once they realized how this place works, we were exhausted, mostly suffering from various degrees of colds and throat infections, thanks […]

A little bit of wine, please…

We are now in the land of the Super Size. In our wonderful resort where we’ve been staying for the past 6 days, everything is big. The oven, the microwave, the fridge, even the toilet paper squares are bigger than normal J Can you imagine our surprise when we ordered wine at Epcot Centre and […]
