Monterey Bay Aquarium Travel

I probably told this story once before, but before I ever fell in love with either music or language, I wanted to be a marine biologist. From the time I first ever saw The Little Mermaid until my first year of university, I was certain that was what I was going to do. But then I received a music scholarship and everything changed. Including my...

The Riverwalk & The Alamo | San Antonio, Texas Travel

During our summer concert tour, M and I had a stop in San Antonio, Texas to perform at the Balcones Heights Jazz Festival. We were there with just enough time to perform and fly back, but before our return flight, we had a few hours free during the afternoon and we wanted to make the most of it.  With the Riverwalk and the Alamo only...

So, this is going to be the first recipe in quite some time that doesn’t belong to a country who’s language I am studying. But… tater tots… Need I say more?

The town features Danish style architecture, several wine tasting...

Lately in Las Vegas Travel

M and I recently had the opportunity to go to Las Vegas for a performance at the Cosmopolitan. We usually make the trip out to perform a few times a year and we make an effort to try out different restaurants/activities each time we head out. This year the drive out was incredibly foggy. It was fascinating watching the clouds evolve from patchy blue skies...

Lately in Southern California Travel

It has been a while since I have done a “lately” post and so I thought I would do one this month while working on my NaNoWriMo project since they’re relatively quick and easy to put up. I am also overdue for a language update and a recipe I promised on Instagram, so expect those soon as well. + To start, I recently had a...

Malibu & The Getty Villa | Local Adventurer Travel

M and I celebrated my birthday in Malibu with a trip to the Getty Villa and lunch at Kristi’s. We enjoyed walking around the Villa and getting a glimpse into Greek history and the view during our lunch. We also drove by a movie set on the way home! I’ve been to both the Getty and the Getty Villa and I really enjoyed visiting both....
