Summer in September

Oh this September has started out with a heat wave. It was so hot out that I drank more than my body weight in water and was still thirsty!

It was a perfect day to lay out on the grass or to go inside any place with working air conditioning. There were tons of people laying out so I guess I had the right idea. 😊

And what better way to cool off than to sit in a wonderful restaurant and order some nice cold gelato. As well as a tirimisu- because variety is important!

Happy travels everyone and enjoy the sweet taste of every dessert! I know I did.

August Adventures

August has been filled with such a variety of things from the day to the night. From delicious flavored teas with boba, to nights meeting actresses and directors. It’s nice to know that I don’t need to travel far to spark an adventure or to run into something randomly and beautiful magnificent. Happy travels and may the adventures stay sweet.

Oh my, July!

Hello my lovely little travelers,

Oh my it’s July again. Today has been a lovely little adventure. I spent the day running out of the house to start the day with the sunrise. Hopping on a bus headed South falling asleep until I reached the last stop. Then off to a street filled with restaurants and shop at a time so early only a couple things were open. As the day progressed so did the heat. Breakfast by the fountain followed by reading a new book was a nice beginning to the day.

As it turned to mid-day I made my way to an Art Museum. It’s a nice experience to walk through museums and galleries to see the different works of art through a myriad of cultures and times.

Then a snack and an exploratory walk to fill the time. Sporadically photography sneaks it way into the day. The weather seemed to get hotter and hotter throughout the day. This lead to a mission to find some water, shade, air conditioning, or any sort of drink to find a little relief. Thank goodness for bookstores with the cafés! Multiple drinks purchases; one for there and one for the road. An increase in hunger and spike in my energy lead me to a restaurant with deliciouslly aromatic pizza. One last walk around the shops and talking to a stranger before heading back North before the sun starts to set.

It felt too ealry to go home and much too far. The bus rides lets me rest from all the movement of the day, with the added bonus of air conditioning. A few cities down is a Mall that became a meeting point. Music fills my ride making the time feel as if it is going faster.

I stepped off the bus and a wave of a slightly dryer heat hit my face. The mall is just across the way.
A face all too familiar reaches my eyes and we begin to shop and chat with the people running the shops. All sense of time is lost and soon that hot day becomes a cooling night.

The night has yet to end but the tired feeling consumes me and I am pleased with how my unplanned day has unravelled.

Hope you are all having a wonderfully adventurous July filled with delicious food.

Old Town Sacramento, CA

I remember the first time I came to this place. It reminded me of old western movie, a little town I went to before, and not much else. Sitting right in the midst of bigger city like city. It has a little charm to it but it only lasts as long as the small town. I can’t say much for the rest of Sacramento though. That little bit of charm is all I need. When the bars are called Saloons and the candy store sells its sweets out of barrels is when I know I’ve walked into a treat.

All the way down is the Capitol Building.

Finding the beauty and adventure in a new place is such a rewarding experience. Happy travels!

June So Soon

This year has been flying by. I can hardly believe it is the middle of the year. I’m happy that it is finally here. Moving has been a tiring and wonderful experience. It is good to finally feel at home again. Out of all the things I’ve missed about this place my blender takes the top of the list. I’m so glad I can be eating a homemade açai bowl! Now that is tasty.

Of course there were things other than my blender that I missed. For instance the sense of comfort and freedom that comes with knowing my surroundings. That was big one for me. Although I do love to explore. It feels good to re-explore this place I call home. It seems a little different after putting some distance from it, in my life. The people, the wonderful people, I missed them too. I feel so lucky to have such caring and supportive friends and family. I made a few friends while I was away and I am happy to have met them. It’s nice to know that the quality of good people can really be found anywhere if you let yourself look.

I wonder what kind of adventures and tasty treats will be in my future. I hope that they are amazing and memorable.

Happy travels and may you have sweet treats.
