Why Liège? | Day 51

When people go to Belgium, they go to Brussels or perhaps Bruge, but there I was on a train to Liège. Who goes this city while backpacking Europe? This girl. You’re probably wondering why Liège was even on my itinerary? I’ve got three reasons: waffles, frites and beer. And that’s exactly what I got. I hadContinue reading “Why Liège? | Day 51”

Iceland, you’ve changed | Day 2

I learned on the first day of this trip to expect the unexpected. It may be cliche, but it’s true. I’m learning quickly how hard it is stay motivated when travelling while battling a cold that just doesn’t seem to want to go away and maybe it’s actually because of travelling that the cold isn’tContinue reading “Iceland, you’ve changed | Day 2”

It’s The Firkin’ Weekend Baby, I’m About To Have Me Some Fun.

Over 30 Southern California breweries lugged over casks full of beer for the second annual sold-out FirkFest, a festival of cask ale, two Saturdays ago (ha! I’m busy doing stuff, what I can I say?) hosted by the OC Beer Blog. It took place at the cozy Farmer’s Park, located right in the ever-so-hip Packing District of Anaheim. ItContinue reading “It’s The Firkin’ Weekend Baby, I’m About To Have Me Some Fun.”

Why Not Climb It? | Day 3 Mount Solmar

“Let’s climb Mt. Solmar,” she said. “Okay,” I say, followed by, “What’s that?” I look at Kaitlyn’s phone and see that it’s that very mountain in the postcard I had just finished writing. We had to missions for the day: Get to the post office to send out our postcards and to climb Mt. Solmar. WeContinue reading “Why Not Climb It? | Day 3 Mount Solmar”

Road Trip | Day 2 #MJWINGINIT

Although I could barely manage to see my surroundings, every now and then I could see the silhouette of the redwoods towering over me and that alone made me feel safe, protected, and content. This trip has been full of clouds and rain preventing Mat and I from camping in the redwood forest, but notContinue reading “Road Trip | Day 2 #MJWINGINIT”

Meet up at Meatup BBQ | OCBeerBlog

Sometimes when you’re constantly planning and going on adventures, you don’t ever get the chance to sit down and document them because you’re too busy just living in the moment. Recently, I got to grab a bite and some brews with the man behind OC Beer Blog and he asked me to guest write on hisContinue reading “Meet up at Meatup BBQ | OCBeerBlog”

Craft Beer + Food Trucks

What’s my favorite part about living in Southern California? It’s not the perfect weather or the ability to get from the beaches off the Pacific Coast Highway to the snowy mountains of Mammoth in a matter of hours. It’s the fact that I can drive to at least five different breweries all within ten minutes, give or take,Continue reading “Craft Beer + Food Trucks”

Food Truck Fries | OC

First post of the year! What better way to start than with an ode to my favorite, FRENCH FRIES!!! (Or freedom fries for whoever thought that could actually be a thing) My last run with fries in 2013 was with a newer food truck called Porko Rico, the same creators of The Viking Truck. Behold the Captain Porko Fries:Continue reading “Food Truck Fries | OC”

Hangry.

I have this problem where when I’m hungry, I like to watch food shows, look at pictures of food, talk about food, etcetera.  Maybe somewhere in my subconscious I feel like my appetite can be satiated through the other senses.  Instead, I get hangry!  But now, I will tell you about the Burger Monster.  Just yesterday, IContinue reading “Hangry.”

Man of Steel.

It all started when…  I blame this midnight showing for this past week!  I can’t believe it was a week ago that this movie came out.  All this time in between, I feel like, I have been half asleep due to the sleep sacrificed in order to see Superman himself.  Never really been too bigContinue reading “Man of Steel.”
