Travel Guides

  1. City Guide: Tulum, Mexico

    I’ve been to Mexico on a number of occasions over the course of my life. Most of my visits were to border cities that offered cheap booze, affordable seafood, mediocre beaches, and an overabundance of tacky (and wacky) souvenirs. Back in my college days, I frequently hopped the border to go dancing in Tijuana and, Continue…

    Of course we ate and drank well. A plethora of shrimp, octopus, and fish ceviche. Tamarind, cucumber, and mezcal margaritas. Mojitos with fresh sugarcane. Fish tacos and chilaquiles.
  2. The Ultimate Food and Music Guide to San Francisco

    We’ve done a number of City Guides here on Turntable Kitchen, and the other day, as I was taking a stroll through Golden Gate Park, I realized that I’ve never actually done a City Guide for the city that I live in. The one I’ve lived in for the past 8+ years! How crazy is Continue…

  3. San Francisco’s Inner Sunset Neighborhood

    I’ve been living in the Inner Sunset neighborhood of San Francisco for nearly 10 years (what?!) and the reaction I get from people when I tell them where I live has gone from, “Where is that?” to “I love that area! I want to live there!” It’s been strange and satisfying to hear my hood Continue…

  4. City Guide: Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara (Japan)

    Last month, Matt and I were presented with the opportunity of a lifetime to go to Japan on an ‘inspiration trip.’ We were selected to join a small group of creative influencers as part of UGG Australia‘s Creative Council. You can read more about that here and watch a little video that UGG Australia’s team Continue…

  5. City Guide: Nashville, Tennessee

    Although we just returned from a trip to Japan, my Nashville City Guide has been a long time coming, so I’m finally sharing it (don’t worry, Japan is soon to come!). Nashville has been on my ‘to-do’ list as a city to visit for quite some time. I must admit that country is probably my Continue…

  6. City Guide: Louisville, Kentucky

    A few months ago, I was flipping through Flipboard (ha!) on my iPad in bed when I came across Lonely Planet’s list of Top 10 US travel destinations. The number one place on their list? Louisville, Kentucky. I yelled out to Matt, who was brushing his teeth in the bathroom to relay my curiosity about Continue…

  7. City Guide: Mendocino, California

    One of my favorite things about living in the Bay Area is being only a few hours’ drive away from some truly magical places. Getting away for a long weekend isn’t quite as easy with a baby (though we certainly aren’t cutting travel out of our lives; we’ve just accepted that it’s a little more Continue…

  8. Travel Guide: Sicily

    The Sicilian sun is very hot. Or, perhaps it is the combination of the sun and the dry winds that blow in from Africa. Sicily is located at the tip of Italy’s ‘boot’ and parts of it are actually geographically closer to Tunisia than Rome. I knew this before I went there, but only when Continue…

  9. Colombia: It Might Not Be What You’ve Heard

    Some of you may know that I recently took a 10 day trip to Colombia, a country in Northern South America, which is bordered by Venezuela, Ecuador, Brazil and Peru. It was a last minute decision, to be honest. After going back and forth about whether or not we’d even have enough vacation time to go Continue…

  10. City Guide: New Orleans

    New Orleans City Guide

    Well hello there, friends. I’ve missed you! Summer has come and gone but suddenly REAL summer has arrived. The Indian Summer we here in San Francisco have all been waiting for. Last week, I spent an amazing weekend with girlfriends in New Orleans, where I ate, ate, and ate (and didn’t sleep much). I haven’t Continue…

  11. Portland and Oregon Roadtrip, City Guide

    Portland and Oregon Roadtrip, City Guide

    You know when you look forward to something so much that you start a mental countdown in your head months in advance? Everything else is framed in the context of this upcoming event: “Yes, two weeks from now we’ll be going to so-and-so’s birthday, and then the weekend right after is our trip!” I had Continue…
