San Francisco, California! Known as the heart of the Bay Area is complete with the famous Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, Seals, Alcatraz, Historical Architecture, Chinatown, Ghirardelli Chocolate, Cable Cars and so much more. This thriving city has become a well known, top destination spot for tourists around the world. Anytime we meet someone who has visited San Francisco they say they want to return, and anyone we meet who hasn't visited always says they want to go.
Located in the mid-northern region of California, just South West of Sacramento, San Francisco is one of the most populous cities in the United States and is home to a number of cultural happenings that draw tourists from all over the world annually.
Where & Why
On our recent fall California road trip we had the opportunity to witness some of the most scenic vistas in the US along the Pacific Coast Highway in Monterey County. We had done plenty of homework planning (check out more of our planning process here) our route and we found that the Monterey section of the PCH was known to be one of the prettiest, so we didn't want to miss out!

Never have I gone to a place and not had the urge to explore the local culture and food. Food is what makes up most of the reasons why I visit certain places. Now you must be thinking, how to plan a trip online that is just based around food? Well, you should start by going through this list of ten places in India that are perfect to satiate the foodie in you. Once you have come to a conclusion and decided on a place to pay a visit, more than half your work is done.
The beauty and awe of experiencing Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks is something that is truly something that should be on everyones bucket list of experiences. From the largest tree in the world to the breathtaking mountain vista views there is really no other place like it on earth.
We recently returned from an amazing road trip adventure through the beautiful state of California. God allowed us another wonderful opportunity to experience some of his handy-work and we are so grateful he did. We honestly didn't expect to enjoy California quite as much as we did, but we are already talking (dreaming) about our future return. We absolutely loved the beautiful weather, diverse landscapes and lively, friendly people! We really couldn't get enough of this place - it has easily climbed the charts as one of our top favorite adventures!
The Champagne is gone, streamers are packed and Fireworks have sounded. It is officially a New Year and the time of reflection and remembering has set in. What a year 2017 was! We have chosen "Tenacious Euphoria" as our descriptive phrase for 2017 and let me tell you why. It was a year that challenged and strengthened us in many ways, while blessing us with many beautiful moments and memories scattered throughout just when we started to need it.
Our adventures for this year weren't as planned as previous years and yet we still managed to see an abundance of new places and have wonderful experiences that will follow us forever. Take a glimpse at our amazing 2017 adventures through this (not so brief) photo essay.
Black Friday is infamous for it's extravagant department store bargains, deals, and crowds but there are also many ways to cash in on the savings with TRAVEL.

Traveling with your love, life partner, spouse, or better half can be one of the MOST rewarding and enjoyable experiences! Personally, we enjoy traveling with friends and spending quality time with family but there is still something that is uniquely special about experiencing a new or even a familiar place with each other. There is just something care-free, romantic, and unifying about it. We really can't get enough adventure with each other!
While traveling with your partner is the ultimate awesome there is definitely an art that goes into making sure you are both on the same page and ready to have an enjoyable experience. Traveling often correlates with unfamiliar settings, tiring flights or drives, spending money, and our personal favorite, a lack of knowing where and what to eat. That romantic, relaxing trip that you dreamed up with your love can quickly and easily become a stressful hassle if you forget to take a step back and remember a few simple tips for getting your focus back from the distractions.

Comfort, Class, And Considerations
There are a lot of ways to save money this holiday season; from buying bulk confections online to staying at relatives’ houses rather than hotels, if you keep your eyes open and your mind clear, you can conserve hundreds—or even thousands—of dollars; helping to overcome the loss which comes from buying presents and taking time off work.
If you ever find yourself in realistic distance of taking a trip to the coastal port city of Wilmington, North Carolina it comes highly recommended by us! We have overlooked this town for a blog post option a few times simply because it feels so close to home. We forget that not everyone can just pick up and go there. However, it's certainly planned trip worthy. It has such a welcoming, local vibe that you often forget you are just visiting. In fact, after awhile it becomes hard to admit you're just visiting. It's certainly one of those places you could stay for awhile.
