Mexico City | Part 2

So much to see and do in Mexico City! We’re continuing on with part two of our holiday trip to CDMX. Jumping right in with a walk around the neighborhoods of Condesa and Roma Norte. There’s apparently a small Japantown of sorts budding in Mexico City. We happened upon a Japanese grocery store, where we…

Mexico City | Part 1

Mexico City is home to 22 million people and has also become quite the draw for tourists, food-lovers, and digital nomads. I had never visited, but Alex has been to Mexico City several times. We had grand plans of going together back in 2020, but of course that never happened– until now! We arrived in…

Lisbon | Honeymoon Part 3

As the capital and largest city, Lisbon is generally lauded as the must-visit city of Portugal. But rather unexpectedly, we actually enjoyed Porto more. Of course this was very skewed for various reasons, not least of which is Alex got food poisoning and was sidelined for two days. Plus, we arrived in Lisbon on a…

Porto | Honeymoon Part 1

Nearly one year after we were married, Alex and I finally went on our honeymoon! When it came to our honeymoon destination, we came up with a huge list of possibilities all over the world and eventually circled back to the first idea for a travel destination that we’d had even before the pandemic, Portugal. …

Vernon Street Farm

After a couple days in Manhattan, Alex and I met up with our friends and boarded a train from the brand new Moynihan Train Hall at Penn Station. We headed northward for two hours and arrived at Hudson Station for the farm portion of our New York trip. Our good friends Do-Hee and Josh had …

Autumn in NYC

Alex and I spent almost two weeks of September in New York, and we just happened to catch the transition from summer into fall. Of course it would have been nice to know that would happen before we left, because we had zero rain-appropriate clothing, but alas. We still had such a wonderful time, both…

Los Angeles

Alex and I got to take a brief road trip down to LA for Labor Day weekend since I had a wedding to photograph down there. Our friends Jon and Pei were kind enough to host us, and we managed to squeeze a lot into our brief visit! First, scenes from our drive down: a…

Calgary

We had such a wonderful time in Calgary, arriving on Canada Day (July 1st) and staying just past the Fourth of July.  We stayed at an airbnb in Inglewood, just east of Downtown, and it was perfectly situated for a few days of exploring the city. Lucky for us, dinner on night one was right…

Los Alamos, California

Were it not for Alex, who spotted the Skyview Los Alamos boutique motel on a previous road trip to Southern California, I may have never found about this town’s existence. I certainly had never heard of a Los Alamos in California, knowing only of its counterpart in New Mexico, which is famous for being the…
