Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows, Santa Monica, CA USA

In-Room Secret

LA is a massive city. Less of a city, it’s simply a massive area. I live and work in Pasadena, and while Santa Monica is an easy 30 minute drive with no traffic, this time can double, triple, or even quadruple based on traffic. So I take my trips out to Santa Monica very seriously. […]

Starbucks, Shinbashi, Tokyo, Japan

Breakfast by the Books

Our last day – Rachel wanted soba for breakfast. I was kinda Japanese-fooded out. Last night we had ramen, oyster, scallops, sushi, and green tea everything.

Griffith Park Golf Shop, Los Angeles, CA USA

Golf Date Club

A golf date. Not my typical outing, but who could resist hitting up a driving range after work to relieve the stress of a long day while catching up with a friend? Sam took me to Griffith Park Driving Range, a beautiful public range and banquet hall halfway between Pasadena and the rest of Los […]
