I remember distinctly that my first conversation with the Hubs-to-be was about Italy. Specifically, how I wanted to move there and be an au pair. That truly was my goal, but I was also playing it cool with the distinguished, green-eyed hottie who would soon be mine, all mine (maniacal laugh). This post is an…
The Fuji Rock Festival in Japan was one of the most fun weekends of my entire life. Read my review of Day 1 and Day 2 in case you missed the action. As a photographer and journalist, I had a backstage pass to see some of my favorite musicians perform, including one of my new favorites, Lorde….
Macau Tower offers the best views of the city and the world’s highest bungy jump. The less adventurous among us (ahem, me) can test our courage as we walk along the glass floor at the observation deck more than 700-feet in the air.

As our bus rolled in to the sprawling white ski resort, I imagined pulling up to the bar and having a cocktail or two with any of my favorite bands who I heard were staying at this very hotel — Bombay Bicycle Club, SBTRKT, Travis, Outkast, Lorde, Flaming Lips, Basement Jaxx, St. Vincent, to name a few.
