Cheers to a Chilean wine!

It’s Wine Wednesday!

When I went on my South American cruise in 2014 with my travel gang, we went to the Concha y Toro winery in Santiago, Chile. I bought the Shiraz Rosé blend wine from their collection. It was pretty good. I liked the combination of red and rosé.

I’ve attached some pictures of their beautiful winery campus. It was serene and peaceful. I would love to go back one day.


This winery was beautiful and HUGE!


So serene. This reminded me of my old college campus in California. Like a walk in the park.

Now THIS is a hearty egg sandwich!

I ordered this yummy Country Dijon Egg Salad sandwich from Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli while I was waiting for my next flight at Denver International Airport. This joint was right by my gate. How convenient! I love egg salad sandwiches. It’s one of my all-time childhood faves! Eggs rock! When I saw this on their menu, and that it was made from SCRATCH, I had to try it. Plus, I’ve never had it with Dijon mustard before.

Boy, this sandwich was THICK! I couldn’t finish it. I tried my best, but it was so filling! Plus, it came with homemade potato salad, which was delicious, and filling in itself. What a great deal!

Hiroshima grindz!

Happy #TravelTuesday!

I went on a one-day tour to Hiroshima, Japan last fall, and absolutely loved it there. It was a very moving day when we visited the A-Bomb site and Sadako’s statue at the end of the day/tour. My heart went out to those who lost their lives that tragic day. A couple pictures shared below:


A-bomb site in Hiroshima. Got the chills… It was surreal to be there in-person.


Sadako Sasaki’s statue/memorial site. Excited that I was there, but felt so sad.

Before we visited those memorial sites, we took a day tour to Miyajima, a small island in Hiroshima Bay. I was excited to try some Hiroshima oysters. Oh my word! That was delicious! I love oysters- raw AND cooked! Mmm, mmm! The line was super long- everyone wanted a taste of those bad boys! Haha! And it was worth it!




My mouth is watering! Take me back!!!!

I found an intriguing article about the benefits of oysters: – it’s not only an aphrodisiac 😉

I also tried the beer that’s brewed in Hiroshima. It was good!


Before we left the island, I had to get some dessert! Japanese strawberry “shave ice!!!!” Refreshing! Japan is known for their sweets/desserts. There’s stands/shops all over the place!

“Sadako & the Thousand Paper Cranes,” is a recommended book to read. It’s one of my fave stories growing up. I read this book in elementary school. It’s a touching story- a page-turner for sure!! I’ve never owned a copy of my own, but yet, this story remains in my heart forever… Before leaving Hiroshima that evening, I bought a copy for myself. It’s a keepsake!


Flyin’ Hawaiian!

It’s time for another review of airplane food. My fave! Haha! Airplane food is the best! I’ve always enjoyed it! I get so excited. It’s the best part of the flight!

I flew with Hawaiian Airlines (Hawaii, represent!!!) to Cali to attend one of my BFF’s wedding. I used to live in Cali for a couple years several years ago and loved it. I always enjoy visiting and have been thinking about moving back again in the future if a good job opportunity arises.

I love that our airlines has expanded their flights to fly across the world. It’s awesome knowing that Hawaii is being represented and known to the rest of the globe. Yea!

Going to California, I had an egg-and-cheese sandwich. It was amazing! Oh my gosh! My lovely neighbor, whom I enjoyed talking story with, didn’t want hers, so I ate hers too, later in the flight- haha! Totally satisfying!


On my flight returning home, I had penne pasta with meatballs, mushrooms, and a light marinara sauce and a southwest salad. Wine was complementary, so I had a cup of good ol’ Chardonnay! Yummy!


Can’t wait till my next adventure! Have a great week, all!
