Hotel Palomar, San Francisco.

Traveling around from place to place, I've developed a love for nice boutique hotels. Doesn't have to be fancy schmancy, just give me the necessities - a shower with good water pressure and a comfortable bed with just hard enough pillows and I'm a happy woman. Throw in free wi-fi, premium bath products, and some good design elements and now you've given me an… Continue

Tasting Local Flavors - Mount Palomar Winery: Temecula Wine Country

I'm no wine expert but I do enjoy my wines every so often. I've always heard that Temecula had great wineries but never had a chance to find out, till now.
