NOLA – Voodo and Bourbon

For most people, Labor Day means two things: a day off and a chance to say goodbye to the summer. But why is it called Labor Day? Labor Day is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men and women; it honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made…

Albuquerque

Our last day in New Mexico was a quick one, partly because we did not have a lot of time until we needed to go to the airport, but mostly because there is nothing to do there anyway. Although it is the largest city in the state, Albuquerque is often overshadowed as a tourist destination…

Tent Rocks

When we travel to a city, we try to find a nice outdoors activity for a day.  This country offers so much beautiful natural landscapes, mostly unknown, that would be a shame to miss out. We drove a couple hours to the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. A remarkable outdoor laboratory, offering an opportunity to…

I Want That Pottery

I finally had some time to continue with the New Mexico blog posts: Santa Fe. We woke up early to be able to visit the Native American bazzar of handcrafts that they set outside the Palace of the Governors. While Eitan awkardly stood there for 20 minutes, Sarah went to each individual seller to find…

Trippy Santa Fe

We decided to take a quick getaway to New Mexico for presidents day weekend! We got a promo deal while opening the Southwest Credit card where they gave us the companion pass for FREE!! This means that we can go anywhere Southwest airlines fly to, and get another person for free; which means we can…

The Life Outside The Strip: Red Rocks

On our last day (or what we thought was going to be our last day) we stopped on the famous Las Vegas billboard sign. There was a huuuge line to get a picture of it, but if you go to the side and you don’t mind that the sign is not perfectly centered, then you can avoid…

Eitan FOMO: Hoover Dam Edition

We planned for an early morning to beat the crowds at the Hoover Dam, but we made the costly mistake of stopping in a crowded restaurant on our way. Breakfast took 2 hours, so by the time we got close to the Dam, this was the traffic…. After a security check (after 9/11 they increased…

Where The Lights Go To Die

We started our morning with healthy fried chicken for breakfast in one of the restaurants in our hotel. It was delicious! We purchased tickets in advance for the Neon Museum,.Founded in 1996, the Neon Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic, arts and…

San Diego To Las Vegas

For the week before NYE we decided to take a short trip to Las Vegas, which is about 5.5 hours away from San Diego. We are not the party animals we used to never be, or even like gambling. This trip objective was to explore what Las Vegas has to offer besides the typical activities…

Sarah & Wine – Willamette Valley Edition

Sarah was really patient with me when I decided to visit almost all the national parks in Oregon, in exchange I insisted  on treating her to get to spend the last day in the wine region. We were flying that night, but we had all day to drink wine! We drove towards the Valley and…
