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…

Oregon Coast

After visiting Mt. Hood we drove straight to the Oregon coast. Our hotel was in the small town of Seaside that we were going to visit the next morning,  We were lucky to be driving through Astoria when the sunset was happening (and Sarah needed to pee), so we stopped for some time to walk…

Mt. Hood & Columbia River Gorge

In our third day in the beautiful state of Oregon, we woke up really to rent a car for the next three days. After some research, Eitan noticed that renting a car 15 minutes away from the city center was $150 cheaper than renting it at the airport. We took an Uber to pick up…

Portland Neighborhoods

We started this beautiful day by walking to Hawthorne Blvd which is the hipster area full of restaurants, coffee shops, and bars. This was the first time I took my new DSLR camera out, so bear with me as I am still learning how to use it. The houses around this area look cute like…

Portlandia

For Labor Day weekend, we took a short vacation to Oregon. Sarah has been here when she was little, so she didn’t really remember much. Eitan has never been, and with cheap flight tickets, this was the best destination to go. We flew to Portland early in the morning and the view of Mt Hood…
