Trip Report: Christmas Cruise on Independence of the Seas [Day 6] Puerto Rico
We woke up Christmas morning in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  San Juan is perhaps the worst port to be in on Christmas Day because Puerto Rico is very religious and traditional, so most stores were closed, and very few tours were operating.  We were also in port ...

Trip Report: Christmas Cruise on Independence of the Seas [Day 4] St. Maarten
We awoke in port next to the Ruby Princess, whom we had been sailing along with from Fort Lauderdale. St. Maarten was flooded with tourists today with six cruise ships in port. I'd be interested to do a study on population spikes in port cities when cruise...

Trip Report: Christmas Cruise on Independence of the Seas [Day 1] Embarkation
A more appropriate name for this trip report might be "The Shingleton's Most Shambly Cruise", as this may be the closest we've come to a National Lampoon-style vacation. My dad and I booked this cruise in August.  That's some real advanced planning for us. ...

How Victoria Almost Missed Vacation
Rachel - "Are you going to write about how you missed your flight?" Me - "I don't know.  It's a sore subject." Rachel - "Yeah, you might lose your credibility.  I mean, you're the vacation girl... they're going to be like, 'I'm not listening to her.  She ca...

American Girl Place, Los Angeles
I grew up an American Girl.  And by American Girl, I mean the doll brand founded by the Pleasant Company in 1986.  It wasn't just because of my Bitty Baby (Rosie), Girl of Today (Paige), and Historical doll (Josefina).  The real reason that I define myself ...

Downtown Disney at Disneyland
It wasn't long after moving to Los Angeles before I started hearing a little voice calling out.... "Victoria, come to Disneyland!" I tried to ignore it.  Really, I did.  But it just kept getting louder! So I decided one afternoon to get a quick "Disney fix"...

+David Jauvtis You're right!  Really, Walt Disney World is a rarity as far as property size goes.  Disney had the benefit of purchasing land while it was cheap... of course, Disney is also responsible for turning Central Florida into a destination.  Early bird catches the worm?

Trip Report: Christmas Cruise on Independence of the Seas [Day 3] At Sea
Our second sea day consisted of another anticlimactic morning of sleeping in.  Also, we forgot to put out our Do Not Disturb sign and didn't flip the dead bolt, and based on a few awkward interactions with our cabin steward, we're fairly confident that he w...

Echo Park Lake, Urban Oasis
When you think of L.A., I'm sure that the first images that come to mind are of tall buildings, movie stars, and traffic.  However, one doesn't have to leave the City of Los Angeles to enjoy a little green space. Echo Park Lake offers grassy picnic areas, a...

UCLA v Oregon at Rose Bowl Stadium
I'll be honest... one deciding factor for whether or not I could picture myself at a grad school depended on whether or not the college had a decent football team (and I honestly considered applying to Oregon  solely for that reason). While they aren't the ...

Rule-Breaking Skyline Photography at The Grove
I love skylines.  The most familiar to me throughout my childhood was the Atlanta skyline.  As a kid riding in the backseat on long road trips to our family in Mississippi or vacation home in Florida, I would look forward to the 20 minutes we spent driving ...
