Arizona Cactus Garden

Close to the Stanford family mausoleum is a cactus garden originally designed in the early 1880s by landscape architect Rudolf Ulrich. “Arizona gardens” were all the rage in Victorian era California and Ulrich was in high demand for his creations. Two of his most elaborate originals still exist: one is located at...

A Crypt, Death, Murder, and a Party

If you meander between Stanford University and the Stanford Shopping Centre, you’ll find a large tract of land that remains largely forgotten and untouched. It has been left to nature and is overrun by plants, gophers, birds, and ghosts of the past. To locals, this is known as the arboretum. Carriage roads cut through it,...

Ebola and Soldiers

A week ago (Oct 19), the theme for my commute was ebola. The U.S. was reeling because a nurse from Texas got on a flight to Cleveland and potentially exposed herself to a whole schwack of people. On that same day, when I arrived in Vancouver, Canadian border patrol was aggressively questioning people about their travel...

I feel more displaced, confused when I wake up (not knowing where I am), and crunchier than my normal self. I also have no trips planned for the immediate future because the whole...

Posted by in Atlanta, Featured, Georgia, Gluten Free Travel

Most of you know that I’m a sucker for old markets. There’s something about fresh vegetables, dead fish, stinky cheese, expensive chocolate, raw meat, and shoulder to shoulder people that I find really intriguing. Maybe it’s the opposite of graveyards in that with a cemetery you can determine the history and soul...

Undercover Baking Agency

Originally, I was going to write a post about how fantastic the foodie scene is in Santa Rosa: rich with traditional breakfasts, gf friendly restaurants (even Italian), cute little cafes, and how there’s a feeling that eating out is meant to be an enjoyable experience and not a rushed event where you stuff sustenance into your...

Posted by in California, Featured, Kidtastic

As we complete another summer of travel, sunshine, beaches, frolicking, learning, and camps, I’m posting a compilation of our experiences from this year’s summer camps. All camps are located in Silicon Valley and we chose which ones to attend based on last year’s experiences; in fact, at the bottom I listed the...
