Regal architecture.

Dresden is a beautiful city. Black sandstone angels and figurines stand tall upon the roofs of buildings, alongside golden sculptures, and elegant glass domed ceilings. Boasting an old town brimming with regal baroque architecture, and museums filled with priceless treasures, this capital of Saxony makes a unique stop halfway along the Berlin-Prague route. What I love most about Dresden are all the embellishments and ornate details that pop out of the woodwork everywhere you turn. Just have a look for yourself:

As far as Berlin hotels go, you can’t get dreamier than five-star Hotel Adlon Kempinski, one of Berlin’s classiest and most luxurious hotels. This hotel will have you feeling like royalty from the minute you step past the top-hat clad doorman and are handed that first welcome glass of bubbling Prosecco. The Adlon has a long and iconic history of wowing guests, and is practically a sightseeing stop on its own.

Chinatown.

It’s official—we’ve moved to San Francisco! It’s been quite a change going from traveling non-stop across 5 continents, roughly 30 countries and over 200 cities in the last 12 months, to living in one city again. It almost feels like time is standing still.

Why San Francisco? Why not? This city has always captured my heart with its hippie ideals, pure California spirit, artistic energy, and culinary devotion. I’ve been a visitor here many times, but living here has come with some unexpected surprises.
