I've been waiting to post my second trip to wine country for a long time! I went to Calistoga to visit my friend Logan. We had a blast traveling around to 4 different wineries and we even got our bottles signed by the wine makers. :)
 I couldn't believe how breathtaking the views were and CANNOT wait to go back.

When friends visit...

Sometimes nothing is better than having friends come visit for a long weekend. I'm pretty sure I was non stop laughing the entire time.

Here we are at one of my favorite brunch spots in North Beach, Delluva.

We had bottomless mimosas.....

                                                                It was pretty fun....

Then we hiked up the hill to Coit Tower.

the next day we had a little more brunch cause thats what we do..

and we hiked up to Lombard St.

and then we hiked back down to Buena Vista for an Irish coffee.

and of course stopped at the water

struck the DG pose :)

became tourists in Fisherman's Wharf

became locals at Pier 23...

ventured down the Embarcadero

and of course went out on the town!

Such a fun filled weekend! I can't wait for them to come again!

Okay. So one of my favorite things in life is exploring new places. Whether it be eating at new restaurants in SF or traveling to new countries, I am a sucker for new adventures. So, when I got asked to go on a business trip to Chicago, I freaked. Keep in mind I have never been to, of course, I was freaking OUT. I literally had half of a day to explore and get as much out of it as I could--so I did!

The best part about the trip? It was 80 March. So I spent a lot of time exploring on foot, venturing to Navy Pier, Millenium Park, Marilyn Monroe statue,  architecture tour on the river and met my long lost study abroad friend for dinner and a night with the locals. Oh, and of course had a Chicago style hot dog :)

I can't wait for another business trip and to go back to Chicago!
