London Like Locals

January 27, 2016

I’ve had a love affair with London for quite some time.

Ever since I first visited during the winter of 2009, I knew this was my dream city. The diverse culture, the friendly people and, of course, the delicious food captivated me from the moment I arrived.

In fact, I was lucky enough to live in London during the summer of 2012 and I got to know the city very well. I researched restaurants, walked through different parts of town to get to know the local streets and took every chance I could to soak in the nooks and crannies of the city.

Fast forward to last year and I took another trip across the pond and back to London with some spare vacation days I had from work. Three cheers for time off!

Aloha!

September 19, 2013

I had the best vacation this summer. I hit the beach, drank Mai Tais and went sightseeing at some amazing places. Of course, I’m talking about the one and only Hawaii!

Apart from being excited to finally work on my tan and ignore my email for a while (which is a vacation within itself!), I was stoked to try new flavors and dishes in the Aloha state.

Early on in my trip, I tried the iconic Hawaiian poke – a dish normally made with fresh, Ahi tuna, scallions, cilantro, onions, soy sauce, sesame oil and a little chili pepper for a kick. Poke actually means “to slice or cut” in Hawaiian and this dish is reminiscent of an insanely fresh ceviche.

Super fresh and ridiculously tasty Hawaiian poke
