• dream on

    We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.

Ready, set, jet – Flash travel sales

My friend Jessy and I are planning a trip to Chicago for the May long weekend for a few reasons: 1. I’m dying to get away, 2. I was convinced Chicago would be great because they have a six flags amusement park, and 3. I have been admiring Chicago though movies for years and feel … Continue reading

Long Beach, CA – Holiday Inn (Downtown)

Who needs travel agents when you have Priceline and Hotwire (even Expedia for that matter). Early in February, I had bid $50 for a 1 night stay in a Long Beach (airport) hotel. Immediately my bid was accepted (damn, should have started lower..) and I was confirmed for a night at the Long Beach Downtown … Continue reading

Mykonos Greek Restaurant – Bellingham Airport Lunch

Flying from Bellingham, WA instead of Vancouver, BC is genius. 1 problem: the airport is tiny and doesn’t have very many options for food in the terminal. On our stopover, we were recommended to Mykonos by an airport staff member. WARNING: this is NOT walking distance. A cab ride from the terminal to Mykonos is … Continue reading

Red Lobster – Point Loma, San Diego, CA – No thanks

Red Lobster in Point Loma, San Diego, is mediocre at best. We were led this way as it was near our hotel and our nifty GPS let us in on the dinner for 2 at $29.99. How wrong can you go? Meal includes 1 starter OR 1 dessert, 2 salads (green or caesar) and 2 … Continue reading

Olive Garden – Burbank

I do, and always have, liked the olive garden. However, this does not include their generally horrendous wait times. Tom and I stopped by the Burbank location on our way from a day in Universal Studios and doing the Hollywood tourist thing. We arrived around 8 PM so it was nice to be seated immediately … Continue reading

Hash House a Go Go – (Really) Twisted Farm Food – San Diego

OH MY GOD. A friend told me about the place as she knew I would be visiting the San Diego Zoo on my trip. She had seen it on chef vs. city (I still haven’t seen the episode) and said something along the lines of waffles stuffed with bacon, tower of chicken, and of course, … Continue reading

Hotel Menage – Anaheim, CA

The Hotel Menage is a boutique hotel of Casa Resorts located a nice 10 – 12 minute walk from the Disneyland Main Gate. After doing a bit of research Here(www.betterbidding.com) on Priceline and Hotwire rates, we took the plunge and booked a night at a 3 star North Disneyland Hotel. I can’t entirely remember the … Continue reading

K’ya Street Fare & Bar, Anaheim – YUM!

While staying at the Hotel Menage, we dined a couple times, at K’ya Street Fare & Bar. When visiting Disneyland and seeking a nearby locale for good, and cheap eats, this is the place to go. As we arrived a bit too early (read: way too early) to check in, we stopped in for breakfast. … Continue reading

new food, new year

Not to brag, but I’ve been eating some delicious home cooked food lately (not my own – see Christmas). Pecan & Saltine cracker’s were blended to make a delicious chicken coating, along with a sour cream & dijon mustard sauce fried up in the chicken sauces. The salad is left over Joey’s beach salad dressing … Continue reading

Van Dusen Festival of Lights 2010

I’m a total tourist. Last night Tom and I made it over to the Festival of Lights at Van Dusen garden and I can honestly say, it was everything I thought it would be (lights) and more (dancing lights!!). I’m a bitĀ embarrassedĀ to say I’ve never been to Van Dusen before, and having lived in Vancouver … Continue reading
