It’s taken me a long time to write about this because I knew it’d be long. But it’s a Sunday and my laundry is currently washing, so I can’t think of a better time than right now. When I booked my trip to Denver in October, I Googled ghost tours and was sad to find out that the ‘best’ tour was more than sold out … Continue reading The Nightly Spirits Ghost Tour (Denver, CO)
I was a tad confused when I arrived at Denver International Airport last week and had to find my way to Downtown Denver. Signage wasn’t great, so I thought I’d write a how-to guide on here so you don’t wind up as confused as I was. Full disclosure: It’s going to be a short guide because it’s not that hard once you know where to … Continue reading How-To: Go from DEN to Union Station
By the time you read this, I will have gotten on a subway and a train to go to the airport and fly off to Denver for the weekend. In fact, I’ll probably already be there. Anyways, I splurged and since it’s only for two nights I’m staying at an actual hotel (!).

But being the super capable solo traveler that I am, this was a feature, not a bug (as the kids say these days). I Googled yoga … Continue reading Working Out on Holiday (New Orleans, LA)
When I was in high school I was obsessed with the musical HAIR. HAIR is about a group of hippies in New York City in the 1960’s during the surge of anti-Vietnam War protests. It was insanely popular when it was on Broadway in 1970 and it’s still popular today. Three thousand miles from New York City, the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood is credited with being the birthplace … Continue reading A Stroll Down Haight-Ashbury (San Francisco, CA)
A few days after I went to the International Rose Test Garden, my cousin and I went to explore the Lan Su Chinese Garden in the Chinatown area of Portland. It’s four thousand feet – or one full city block – of walled-in Chinese garden. In other words: an oasis in a city when you need to get away from the traffic (and bikes) of … Continue reading Zen in the City: Lan Su Chinese Garden (Portland, OR)
