      The last time I went to California was when I was in high school and while I was there, I visited San Jose and San Francisco. Recently, I had the opportunity to visit San Diego for work, and of course, I had to extend my trip so I could really explore San Diego and La Jolla. As usual, I did a ton of research and planning as to what the best restaurants were and different sites we could see.

    Europe Travel Guide

    Back in May, I went on an amazing trip to Europe for 3.5 weeks. I spent hours upon hours looking atΒ travel blogs, Pinterest, Trip Advisor and Eurail.com so I could plan every moment of my trip. I was so OCD about this trip that I created a color coordinated calendar with all of our tours and attractions on it. I know, I need help. When I got back from Europe I thought to myself, “I put in a lot of time and research into this trip and learned a lot along the way, so why don’t I share all of it?” I figured that all of my hard work could…
