Open to any of the destinations
I had done Moose's Tooth years ago (2014) but it looks like they've expanded. Only thing of note this time was that it was observing (rightly so) covid restrictions on dine-in, so we were just spaced out in the auxiliarily dining area, set up more like a wedding reception tent area with large circular tables spaced out. Seriously, my wife and I had a ~10 person table to ourself. We went with the Forager (veggie basically).
49th had a cool vibe and was definitely newish. Almost exclusively young people. I'm a pretzel snob and theirs was fantastic, unfortunately no other sauce/dips to sub for the beer cheese, so you get a lot of that.
We didn't spend much time in Girdwood, but it's so accessible and has everything (from whale/bird watching just off the highway with ADA ramps) to 20+ mile hiking and cross country skiing trails. The ranger you deal with always goes a long way and this was a good ranger that we dealt with from the Chugach NF Glacier Station right off the main road.
I've never been to Yacht Week, but know they do it all over the world. Croatia and the BVIs are top spots, I believe. Have been to both, but not for yacht week.
Had an awesome meal at:
Thanks. Never been to Cabo, so not sure what to expect, especially during covid. Hoping there's some outdoor exploring we can do.
not sure how COVID has impacted this, but we did a 4-day weekend in Cabo in February and did a walking food tour the first night. Was a great way to experience some local non-touristy places. The tour we did focused on seafood and was phenomenal. We ate at a couple of the restaurants multiple times during our stay.
Woke up Christmas morning 2014 off Cabo, didn't go ashore
Sounds like a great 80th bday
you can expect some good fish taco's, shots at Squid Rowe, and to get COVID.
This restaurant is a bit of a drive as it's in San Jose del Cabo, but it was spectacular when I went there last year.
My MIL, who paid for the whole extended family to get seasick for four of the seven days at sea over the holidays because "Mexico does Christmas better than we do," characterized cruise ships as being filled with the newly wed and the nearly dead
she wasn't wrong
I just looked at the airbnb link my buddy sent me and it looks like we're staying in San Jose del Cabo. Didn't know there were two cities. Figured "Cabo" was all encompassing.
I miss Mexico.
For basically my entire 20s, I was "too cool" for Mexico. Because it was always so close, I took it for granted. Also bought into some of the stupid news stuff.
Fuck it's such an amazing country. I was dumb.
Mexico is the best too once you get away from your typical touristy areas, Central Mexico is my favorite place on earth that’s alway been my happy place since I was young
You have inspired me to find my way to Chiapas sooner rather than later
I’m going to Mexico in about a month for 4-6 weeks. Can’t wait
Tulum, Baja, maybe somewhere else. Haven’t planned anything really
Also might spend January and February back in Honduras. The diving was so good for this side of the world, and cheap
Yosemite is still smoky AF, this was yesterday. Supposed to go in 2 weeks.
U driving down? Flying then renting a car ?
I really need to get to our Western National Parks
I need to do a 2-3 week tour of Utah. Going to try next summer.
Bestern National Parks
I keep switching it up but now eyeing Keystone, Colorado. 5 days. mid January. Anyone been?
Haven’t been to Keystone in a while but good time for a ski trip. My preference for ski trips in the area is to stay in Frisco or Dillon because then you can hit different resorts but you’re closest to the best one, Copper
Keystone is great and there are enough trails and local eateries to last 5 days.
Over the summer, I was watching a Mexico-based Netflix show (Club de Cuervos) while also reading a book (This Love is Not for Cowards) about a Juarez soccer team and it all got me enamored with Mexico and now I want to experience the non-resort places. Even more so since I've never even been to the country before.
Watching Narco’s sent me to Medellin
Trying to figure out post pandemic honeymoon destination because it's fun. Any advice?
Right now the finalists are: Morocco, Galapagos, Japan (Japan is leader, because we've got a much larger budget than usual for this one trip, bc honeymoon and such).
Ruled out any place that either of us have been, so that narrows the field a bit. She's also not interested in Tahiti/Bora Bora/Fiji. Other places we could potentially look into are: SE Asia (Sans Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia), Argentina, Ecuador, and don't know what else.
Haven't been to Morocco or Galapagos but Japan is incredible and always on my list of top places to go back to. Lots to see, incredibly nice people, some of the best food in the world, and not as expensive as you'd expect. It wouldn't be the traditional lounge around and relax type honeymoon but doesn't sound like you are looking for that anyways.
Appreciate it. Did you stay in a Ryokan? We're both foodies, so food is one big reason Japan is so high on the list.
yes, stayed in one in Hakone. Definitely worth it to splurge on a nice one. Also, didn't stay here but was looking at the Travel and leisure top hotels in the world list and this one in Tokyo came in at 46.
Love Japan but I'm not sure it's what I think of for "honeymoon"
She won't do luxury and relaxation, hence Bora Bora/Tahiti/Fiji being off the table. I don't really care, they all sound great to me.
Anyone been to Riyadh before?
Not sure what to expect - my friend over there (who is good friends with both me and the wife) says it's amazing and don't worry about anything the whole time we're there.
Any input appreciated.
Saudi Arabia is a hard pass for me, but I bet it would be cool.
Heading to the airport, 2 hour flight to SF. First time in an airport since January, feels weird man.
Flying into SF on Friday. What’s your itinerary?
this was in Santa Cruz a couple weeks ago
Land late tonight, spend Thurs and Fri exploring SF.
Head to Yosemite early Saturday morning, spend 4 days/3 nights backpacking.
Fly back to Seattle next Wed.
What about you?
Yosemite in late October will be crisp, chilly at night
And sleeping at 7,500 ft
Where? Not the valley floor (4000) or Tuolumne Meadows (10,000). Hope the bag is warm
I’m doing the North Rim the first 2 nights: first night camp on top of North Dome, then on second day hike and camp on top of El Cap.
Day 3, hike back into the valley, re-supply, and go hike into Little Yosemite Valley. Wake up Day 4 and hike either Half Dome (if I win a permit) or Clouds Rest
You're a hardier soul than I. I've got this weird penchant for beds, walls, and functioning bathrooms, so we always stay at the Yosemite Valley Lodge. Post some pics when you get a chance. Should be spectacular.
Shitting outside is the best though
These travel adventures are much harder to plan with a 13 month old we are finding out lol we are dying for a trip but shit gets complicated when it’s not to family or roadtrip where u can load up the car with his shit
