We were currently in LA for the holidays and I remembered why we moved out of Southern CA, THE TRAFFIC, especially on the LA Freeways. It royally sucks, no other way to say it. With this in mind, I asked Gene to write up a short post about getting back to the airport while avoiding some of the most horrible LAX Traffic on the freeways – aka parking lots, lol. He was a courier in the LA area for almost 18 years and drove at least 50, 000 – 60,000 miles a year on these congested freeways. Thus, he has had a lot of experience trying to avoid the daily backups. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Last September we were in Eugene, Oregon and had a great time exploring the area. We really enjoyed checking out several covered bridges in the area and you can see my post on the link. On the way back to Portland to catch our late afternoon flight, we had to check out the cute little German town named Mount Angel. I had heard about it before, but wasn’t sure exactly where it was. I was very happy to find out it wasn’t too far out of our way to stop in for a brat and a bier before we headed home!
There were a lot of cool things about being at the Hyatt Regency in Waikiki during our visit to Oahu in December of 2016. One of them was being able to enjoy the Indoor Farmers Market they hold every Tuesday and Thursday night from 4-8 pm. We hit it right after watching the amazing Hula Show on Kuhio Beach. I will share a little more about that show in a bit, but first I want to share a little about the wonderful Farmers Market.
In March of 2017, my niece Alex and I spent a few days together in Phoenix. We enjoyed visiting the OdySea Aquarium and checking out some of South Mountain Park. We also enjoyed a great meal at Comedor Guadalajara. However, our trip wouldn’t have been complete without a visit to the Phoenix Public Market – aka the Open Air Market.

While enjoying the Riverwalk in San Antonio in February of 2018, we heard about a Farmers Market and decided to check it out. It was called the Pearl Brewery Farmers Market and was different than some of the other ones, but truly interesting. I also remember all the cute dogs and kids running around. It made me really miss our puppies and wished that they were with us. However, it was fun petting many of them. Continue reading “The Pearl Brewery Farmers Market in San Antonio, Texas”
