How I packed for my weekend trip with one carry on

I never feel more badass than when I board a plane with only a carry-on, then get off and walk straight to the pickup curb. That’s right, I just used a plane as a freaking taxi, yo! And it’s because I’m pretty good at packing […]

From sobremesas to so much cheese: The 12 things I learned about Buenos Aires

Mike traveled to Buenos Aires in 2011. These are excerpts from the journal he kept while there… It’s 9:45 on a Sunday morning in November, and Buenos Aires is a ghost town. Guess this can be expected when everyone stays out until 5 am, which […]

#Morocstars: Tips for managing your “traveling women in Morocco” anxiety

While Mike was producing Prison Break, we got the opportunity to go to Morocco (Prison Break Season 6 used Ouarzazate to film their exterior “Yemen” scenes.) Which meant we’d be “living” in Morocco for almost three weeks. While I was excited as hell about traveling to Morocco, […]

It had been a couple of months since our last weekend trip, and Mike and I had been itching to get out-of-town again. Based on a genius hunch, Mike checked to see if there might be some last-minute availability in Yosemite in October — specifically […]

The perfect recipe for a weekend trip to the Santa Ynez Valley

For my mother-in-law’s 70th birthday we rented an awesome house and had a perfect, fun and sun-filled family weekend trip to Santa Ynez Valley. It was easy and successful because we had a team of producers (the Horowitz siblings) mostly running the show. If you’re […]

My ode to the best travel pet carrier ever

My ode to the best travel pet carrier ever

I agonized for weeks over what pet carrier to get for Pita. She’s a small dog (8-10lbs) but not a TINY TINY dog. And the space under airline seats (much like overhead bins) are so unpredictable. I also didn’t want to have to carry her […]

The not-to-miss, best restaurants in Edinburgh

After our quick trip to London for my birthday, we headed off to Edinburgh to produce our show for the Fringe Festival. Recently, I was asked for not-to-miss things to do in Edinburgh. Since we were only there for the Fringe Festival, we didn’t have […]

The best restaurants in Ouarzazate (that are hopefully still in business!)

When Mike was producing Prison Break Season 6, we had a two and half week stint for filming in Ourrzazate, Morocco. We of course ended up eating at a few restaurants several times, and some places only once for reasons. And thus have narrowed down […]

The awesome hotels and best restaurants in Cartagena (that we discovered by accident)

We took a last-minute trip to Cartagena when we found out we couldn’t fly from Bogota to Costa Rica without a yellow fever vaccine. No worries, we re-routed ourselves to the gorgeous town of Cartagena, Colombia and found some amazing places to stay, and sampled […]
