Underrated East bay hike + Girl’s night reunion at Matt’s birthday

Happy Chinese New Year!! I am missing my family on this special holiday, and send my love to those who cannot see their family due to this terrible virus.

Secret concert + brunch convert + Burning Man Decompression + Tennessee Valley hike

These past few weeks in SF in between work trips (a.k.a not traveling) have been really REALLY nice. It’s amazing how quickly our bodies/minds can adapt to situations.

A whole weekend outdoors feat. surfing in Bolinas + start to freelance writing

Hey there, friends! I’m currently blogging from my usual hotel room in D.C. for my monthly east coast visit for work. It’s hard to believe I traveled across the country today as I was so head-down in work/emails all day.

Post-travel and summer blues + after-burn show

And in a blink of an eye…summer is over! Is anyone seriously depressed about that fact or is it just me? Last week was a weird, emotional, yet uplifting one…I’m usually okay transitioning after big trips, but after Nicaragua I had major post-travel blues. I think it stemmed from the larger fact that my crazy … More Post-travel and summer blues + after-burn show
