Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I've had itchy feet and an inclination to get adventurously lost wherever I go. My favorite way to get a feel for any new culture is by fully experiencing their cuisine, as I am also passionate about food. When I'm bored I like pulling out a map, closing my eyes, and pointing to a random spot...then booking a flight there...
It's a bit of a climb but the views are so worth it at the top of the Passeggiata del Gianicolo or Giancolo as most people know it. In my opinion it is the best spot in town to see Rome. It’s kind of like the Sacré-Coeur in Paris in that it’s a big h... See More
I'm spending thus weekend in half moon bay with my family and family friends- there's 8 of us total age ranging from 19 to 50+. we all are staying on the same condo on the beach, and I am SWAMPED with homework, so I need some suggestions ... See More
Since this is a limited amount of time, I would recommend planning on a long, relaxing lunch, close to some of Florence's best piazzas, so that you can just enjoy the atmosphere and Italian way of life. It will be absolutely incomplete if you don't s... See More
The above suggestions are great! Also, if you want a great option for a fun-atmosphered meal, Pasta Moon is excellent! It's been there for as long as I can remember, overlooks a really pretty garden, and is the type of place that's very apparently ho... See More

My time in Venice was EXTREMELY limited, so I think your best bets for sighseeing off the beaten path have already been answered up above. However, I went to an AMAZING restaurant called La Zucca that was extremely hidden- I got lost for about an hou... See More
...you the chance to actually zipline through some of the area's redwoods- this is an UNFORGETTABLE way to see Sonoma. Also, Safari West in very close-by Santa Rosa is one of the most epic, hands-on wild animal experiences that I have every experienced.... See More
Though I don't specifically have any recommendations as far as hotels go (I live close to Napa so I never need to spend the night), I can say that an area right in the vicinity that's charming is Yountville. I know that the Napa Valley Lodge is there... See More
All of the above are great suggestions! For breakfast or brunch, there's an ADORABLE little place that recently opened at the end of a pier in Malibu called Malibu Farm Cafe. All the ingredients are SO fresh, and the owner takes a lot of pride in bei... See More
