When I was in Japan, I ate a lot of rice balls. I haven’t ever found them in the United States (except Hawaii, but I suspect that’s because they get a lot of Japanese tourists). If you’ve never tried a Japanese rice ball, you’re in for a treat. These delicious, convenient, hearty little snacks are as versatile as they are easy to make.
Traveling Through Your Taste Buds is back, and this time we’re going to be talking about Jamaican Jerk Chicken.
I love Vancouver! I’d like to compile a list of places and tips for getting around based on my experiences in Canada in case any of you are planning on your own Vancouver adventure!
The first time I ever went to Hawaii, I chose Kauai. Having done my research, I knew I would be absolutely enchanted with the beautiful garden island, and it didn’t disappoint. If you’re thinking about going to Hawaii and you haven’t decided which island you want to visit first, you should know that each one is unique and offers something different. Depending on your personality and what you want to get out of your trip, you’ll want to choose different islands. Personally, Kauai fits me like a glove.

If you’re like me and you hate dealing with the airport, you’ll be happy to know that some airports around the world have added some amenities that make your time there more pleasant. When I was recently at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, I stayed in a nice hotel that was inside of the International Airport terminal. They had rooms outside of security, where I stayed, but they also had rooms inside of the secure area, so that even travelers only in Tokyo for a long layover could find a place to lay their heads for the night. I’ll go into that more in a bit, but I was inspired by my experience to do a little research on airports around the world that offer up some great amenities to travelers. If you’re planning a trip that involves any of these airports, make sure to check out these awesome bonuses and your travels will be just a little more relaxing.
Sometimes it’s nice to just be spontaneous with your travel. If you’re looking for a last minute deal on a little getaway, there are a dizzying array of sites and services out there looking for help you out with that. The thing is, many different travel-related companies such as airlines and hotels are looking to fill their open spots at the last minute and they are usually willing to give you a deal in order to fill up those spots. From their perspective, giving you a discount will still make them more of a profit then leaving those seats or rooms empty, so it’s a win-win scenario.
Anyway, if you’re interested in a last minute, spontaneous trip, here are some resources for you to find a deal:
Located in downtown Pasadena on Colorado Blvd., the Norton Simon is a smaller, often overlooked museum. However, step inside and you’ll discover that although they are small, they pack quite the punch with an impressive collection. It’s actually one of my favorite museums in Los Angeles!
Today I wanted to talk about one of my favorites: Bibimbap, which is a dish from Korea. Bibimbap literally means Mixed Rice, but it’s so much more than that. If you’re new to Korean food, this is a great introduction to the cuisine that I find to be pretty versatile and accessible to most palettes. If you’re a Korean food fan already, then you’ll love having this for dinner at home. If you’ve never tried Korean food before, this is an easy, accessible place to start. So, without further adieu, let’s sit back, relax with a hot bowl of Bibimbap, and imagine ourselves strolling the streets of Seoul. Bon Apetit! (or maybe I should say 잘 먹겠습니다)
A few months ago, I went on a Southern Arizona road trip. While the purpose of my particular trip was mainly to visit relatives, we did take some time out to have fun and explore, of course, and it got me thinking that I should probably write a blog post on cool things to do in Southern Arizona. I think a lot of the time, Northern Arizona gets all the glory. Home to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff, and Antelope Canyon, Northern Arizona is an absolutely amazing place. But if you find yourself in the Southern part of the state, there are some cool things to enjoy there as well. If you find yourself visiting the area or just driving through, check out some of my recommendations and have a great time!
