I love hiking and tend to hike most weekends. I’m constantly seeking out new trails, and thankfully there are a lot of new trails to discover here in San Diego County! I wanted to take a minute to give you the run-down on some of my favorite trails here in the local area in case you’re planning on visiting San Diego and want to get some time out in nature!
As usual, I wasn’t as diligent about preparing for this event with daily runs as I should have been. Story of my life. But I did work out a few times a week, and we did order some sweet tutus to wear during the race, because one must wear something silly when running Bay to Breakers.
So…how did it go?
When you’re celiac like me, dining out can be a stressful experience. You’re essentially putting the fate of your health into the hands of a kitchen who may or may not understand celiac disease or…worse…may not care enough to take necessary precautions. Thankfully, there are some pretty great places around the city that take good care to accommodate us. Hooray!
It’s not cheap, but if you’re going to be in Paris and you want to shell out for an unforgettable experience, I can’t recommend Bateaux Parisiens any more. They are the best! I can’t wait to cruise with them again next time I’m in Paris.

I’ve written about Annecy previously, and I’ve mentioned my time at La ferme de Charbonnière in this blog in several previous posts, but I had such a magical time visiting this little family-owned farm that I wanted to write up a post just about my experiences there.
For most Americans, a trip to France involves Paris, of course. Perhaps they also venture down to Provence or the Southern coastal towns such as Nice. But there’s so much more to France. Might I suggest Annecy?
As a celiac disease sufferer, travel includes some extra complications that most people don’t have to deal with. Still, I love nothing more than seeing the world, so going through the extra effort to ensure that gluten free food is available is more than worth it. I’m not going to lie though, there are those moments when Ive been turned down by three restaurants in a row and I’m starving when I just feel like curling up into a little ball and giving up on the whole thing. Luckily, traveling while gluten free in France is not only easier than you might think, but it’s also a delight! I wanted to write about my recent experiences, some absolute gems I found while in France, and of course, plenty of helpful tips!
Anthony Bourdain was different. He embodied everything I strive to be in my life…adventurous, open-minded, inquisitive, and honest.
He was an inspiration not only to me, but also to an entire generation of those of us who daydream of faraway places; those of us who decorate our homes with maps and artifacts from around the world…to those of us who always have the plans for another adventure in the works.
I’m going to toot my own horn for a moment…
I live in an awesome city.
Sometimes I don’t really appreciate it as much as I should, because I get caught up in work and traffic and bills and cleaning the apartment and making sure I’ve bought enough eggs to last through the week, but when I do stop and take the time to look around me, I have to say, San Diego is pretty amazing.
I haven’t always lived in San Diego. I’m an L.A. transplant who, like so many before and after me, gave up the glitz and glamour urban sprawl and crush of humanity for a mellower, more pleasant, more quintessentially “California” experience.
