Let's Go To: Kanazawa, Japan


I know for a fact that Kanazawa isn't somewhere people think of when planning their trips to Japan. I know this because I was born and raised in Tokyo and had only heard of the place. I had no clue about the history of the city, let alone where it was on the map (shameful I know but see below)! Turns out my Father had spent two years in Kanazawa for college before transferring to Tokyo and it's been a hot spot for domestic travel the past few years! From Tokyo station, we took the bullet train and traveled for 2.5 hours.

Let's Go To: Tokyo, Japan - Part I

Tokyo can be intimidating. Whether it's the cost or the amount of people, I completely understand and guess what? I was born and raised there! I may be biased but Tokyo really is one of the most exciting places you'll ever visit. The best transportation system, top notch customer service, the highest number of Michelin star restaurants in the world and the list goes on!

With all that said, I'm really excited to share my list of places I love, mostly because some of my recommendations include places that are not going to show up in any city guide - totally local approved! I'll be back with a Part II as well!

Happy December, everyone! Wow, when did December roll around? I feel like I just got used to writing 2015! I love the holiday season and if I'm being completely honest, I have more fun picking out gifts than getting them. Not to toot my own horn but everyone that's received gifts from me knows I'm a great gift-giver! It's so much fun! 

I've compiled a list of fun, some practical some not, gifts that are perfect for that traveler you know - or shoot, for yourself, you deserve it!

Let's Go To: Honolulu, Hawaii


Aloha!

This isn't my first trip to Hawaii but it has been a decade or so and I was so excited to go back! I was determined to do everything touristy to familiarize myself again with Honolulu. Hawaii is such a special place. Surrounded by mountains and beaches, occupied by friendly, gorgeous people and delicious food.

Unfortunately while I was there, it rained for most of the time but I didn't let that disrupt my trip! I still managed to make it to all of my favorite places and some new ones as well!
