Recently we went to the Hangtown Halloween Ball in “Old Hangtown” Placerville, CA.  We had never been to this event or Placerville other than driving through on the way to South Lake Tahoe.  I have to say that we were really impressed with the concert and the town.  Placerville actually has a lot of great little shops and most […]

5 Things To Do Around Valencia Street In The San Francisco Mission

Posted on 07 November 2014

Being a local San Franciscan I have seen so many shops and stores change hands in the last several years that it seems like there is a new restaurant or store that pops up every month. Rising rents have led to many of the original businesses leaving and the area becoming the most gentrified that […]

Parking can be a little difficult to come by at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix’s small parking lot that fills up quick (probably because others also feel that this place is amazing) but once I walked through the doors I knew that it was worth the trip. Bringing along kids ranging from 1 to 12 years […]

Hempel Hotel – London

Posted on 25 June 2014

Review and Photos by The Cobrasnake

The Hempel is a really quiet hotel located in Paddington. It’s far away from everything. When you are inside it feels really relaxing. The reception is very quiet and clean -as is the rest of the hotel. The room was completely white. The bed was so big you could comfortably sleep 4 people.

InterContinental – San Francisco

Posted on 03 April 2014

The drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco always seems a little shorter and a little easier. When I finally arrived there I was a little frazzled from the traffic and having anticipated a few less hours at the wheel. Making matters even more challenging was navigating downtown on a busy Saturday night before I […]


St. James Hotel – Paris

Posted on 01 April 2014

Located in the 16th Arr., The St. James is the only château-style hôtel in Paris. Nestled in a lush green setting you would almost forget you’re right in the center of Paris and only a mere stone’s throw from the Arc de Triomphe and Avenue Victor Hugo. This stunning but small “mini château” only has […]
