If you haven’t yet heard of the little town of Ojai, California, you’re in for a treat. Located not too far North of Los Angeles, So Cal people in the know have long been retreating to this chill little hippie paradise, but I hadn’t yet had the chance to visit and had been really wanting to.
What’s nice about going in the Fall is that there are often some really good deals on flights from the mainland West Coast. As a result, I usually go to Hawaii in the fall. Our accommodations weren’t too expensive either (see next section), so really the biggest expense we faced was the rental car. Although I would have liked to forego the car, I love the freedom that comes with being able to drive anywhere, any time, so it was worth the cost.
I’m excited to announce a contribution from freelance writer and mother of two, Jenny Holt. She loves nothing more than getting away from it and taking her pet Labrador Bruce for long walks, something she can do a lot more now she’s left the corporate world behind. She has written a post for us today about historically rich restaurants in the USA. I hope you enjoy her article!

When one thinks of Las Vegas, one generally thinks of the Strip. All those pristine, towering themed casinos with fake pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, and all other manner of grand displays. The strip can be a whole lot of fun whether you’re a gambler or not (I should know…I’m not and I’ve found plenty to do on the Strip). That being said, Downtown Las Vegas is the often overlooked, older cousin of the strip. It’s really a shame it’s overlooked so much, because it’s a seriously cool place to be.
San Diego is known all over the world as a destination for beautiful scenery and sweeping ocean views. Why not enjoy a leisurely meal while enjoying some of the best sights San Diego has to offer? These restaurants with a view in San Diego are definitely worth checking out.
Recently, I found myself with the occasion to visit San Francisco just for the weekend. My friends from Australia were in town and it was a good opportunity to visit with them and have a little bit of fun, of course.
San Diego is known all over the world as a top destination for surf and sand. Get in on the action at one of the best restaurants with an ocean view in San Diego County!
That being said, I can’t write about all the amazing places to eat my state has to offer in one sitting…that would be a LOT of writing! So, I wanted to narrow it down to my home of Coastal North County San Diego. We’re talking Encinitas, Carlsbad, Oceanside, and the surrounding areas. We get a lot of tourists here, particularly in the summer. If you’re going to be visiting and either need to eat a plant-based diet or just want to try out something new, why not check out one of these vegetarian (and awesome) places?
When a lot of us travel, we like to blend in to our surroundings and not walk around with a big sign over our heads that says, “Hey! I’m a tourist!”
I get it. I do the same thing when I travel. That’s why I wanted to write this little piece about what not to do if you want to blend in while on holiday in the Golden State. This piece is all in good fun, of course. The truth is, we’ve an incredibly diverse state with people from all over the U.S. and indeed all over the world living and working here. Still, there are a few things we born and bred Californians say and do that brands us as locals. Want to do as the locals do? Follow this guide. If not, that’s cool too. Honestly, it doesn’t matter too much and we’ll accept you either way.
