Icelandic Heat

Mid summer 2016, I transferred to take my MBA courses in London versus in Chicago. While I did it to consolidate my travel for school, this also meant great ease with which to tack on all sorts of travel to school weeks. Seeing the northern lights in Iceland had been a bucket list item for some time, so when my dear friend Allison suggested a girl trip to Iceland, I was IN.

Tomales Bay, Take 2: Just As Good

My dear friend from college visited this past weekend from San Diego. I sold her on basically repeating exactly the weekend experience my brother and I had a few months ago. She obliged, and it was awesome. On the itinerary: oysters at Nick's Cove, wine tasting at Gloria Ferrer in Sonoma and a beautiful hike through Lands End near my house in San Francisco.
