More Boston Recommendations

I took an unexpected hiatus, but I’m back with a few more Boston recommendations before our stay here ends in a couple of weeks – it flew by so fast! Taza Chocolate Factory Tour // Taza Chocolate is a mexican-inspired type of chocolate (its texture is a bit crunchy since they don’t grind it as much…

Eating Our Way Through Boston

2013-10-14 09.52.32-2

So I’m thinking of temporarily renaming the blog to Eating Through Boston or something like that. Not really, but it would be kind of appropriate considering that’s exactly what we’ve been doing lately. It’s been a couple of weeks since I last talked about our (mostly) weekend plans here, so I thought I’d catch up……

Weekend Catch Up

2013-09-19 14.42.08-1

First things first: we have a winner for last week’s $200 gift card giveaway, “Cape on the Corner”. So check your e-mail! It’s been a couple of weeks since I talked about what we’ve been doing here in Boston, so I thought it was time to catch up. Let’s start with the weekend before last…

Touristy Stuff in Boston

2013-08-31 10.04.12

It’s an “International Doctorate” program, which means that I have to do at least a three-month stay to work on my thesis with someone in a non-Spanish University. Such stay is usually…

Santa Barbara


After four nights in San Francisco, we spent another one in Monterey and then drove to Santa Barbara down the coast on Wednesday. The drive, like the one from Portland to San Francisco, was beautiful – although a bit foggy. I spent many summers here in Santa Barbara when I was younger, but the last…

Portland to San Francisco


My wallet disappeared from my purse on Tuesday evening in Portland, with a lot more cash than I care to admit and my credit cards/driver’s license/ID. I remember thinking the other day that it had been a long time since I bought the wallet but it was still in great condition and I hadn’t grown…



I’m pretty sure I have discovered the world’s bestest ice cream. It’s the salted caramel flavor from Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream Shop in Seattle. Plus, did you know their scoops are the size of a baseball?!?  Although tomorrow we’re headed towards Portland, where I hear Salt and Straw is up for the challenge and might…
