The Filthy Diet

“The Filthy Diet” – a diet where you only drink extra dirty martinis all day long, thus losing weight really fast. 137 weeks ago (thanks instagram) I was in Richmond for an “off day” on tour. The group I was with decided to have dinner that night at an Italian place that was recommended to […]

Lasse Lucidor – Gamla Stan, (Old Town) Stockholm, Sweden

LASSELUCIDORGAMLASTANSTOCKHOLMSWEDEN4-ALISONINWONDERLAND

Gamla Stan is cute. There are narrow cobblestone steps that take you through medieval streets and even on a Saturday night at midnight the streets are quiet. The shops have closed and there are only a handful of restaurants and bars still open. One restaurant in particular made treated us very kind and stayed open […]

RUNYONCANYON3-ALISONINWONDERLAND

If you want to go on a hike in LA, one of the most popular places to go is Runyon Canyon. Let’s start from the beginning of the “LA version” of a good hike: finding parking. It doesn’t matter what time of day you go, you will drive around for 45 minutes looking for parking. I […]

GETDEJOURED6-ALISONINWONDERLAND

I’ve never gotten so many compliments on my ass. And I’m really happy about it. Dejour Jeans offer custom tailored, colorful, quality jeans for 50 bucks. And there’s only one place in the world you can get ’em – Brunswick, VIC – Australia, just outside of Melbourne. I’d heard about this place from a friend […]

Kaffibarinn – Reykjavíc, Iceland

KAFFIBARRINREYKJAVIC ICELAND-ALISONINWONDERLAND

This place is darling. It’s in downtown Reykjavíc which is cute and clean and quiet. I had read reviews saying that this bar could be hard to get into & super crowded. I guess we picked the right night to go because we walked right in and found a table in the corner right away. […]

Erg Chebbi Sahara, Morocco

ERGCHEBBISAHARAMOROCCO-ALISONINWONDERLAND

Along the Morocco/Algeria boarder there is a little berber village nestled in the Erg Chebbi Sand Dunes. It may be in the middle of nowhere but you still get a traditional moroccan meal by candlelight and then a drum performance. Rugs cover the ground and if you go in Oct/Nov the weather will be perfect […]

Well, The Hangover 2 definitely sucked but boy do they know how to pick a location. Sky Bar at State Tower is a rooftop bar/restaurant that makes you feel like you are on top of the world. You sort of are. It’s the third tallest building in Thailand and gives you a panoramic view of […]

BONDIBEACHSYDNEYAUSTRALIA-ALISONINWONDERLAND

Bondi Beach is what all beaches should be like: sea blue water, waves, people in colorful bathing suits with super bright umbrellas, towels scattered everywhere, clear blue skies, soft sand, 80 degree weather, popsicles, seafood (and the accents don’t hurt either). It is the beach of all beaches. Go to Sydney..go to Bondi Beach…listen to […]

Dyen Sabai – Luang Prabang, Laos

DYENSABAILUANGPRABANGLAOS-ALISONINWONDERLAND

First of all, let me say that Luang Prabang is the most unique, otherworldly place that I’ve ever been to. Laos is one of the poorest countries in Asia, but that doesn’t take away from the charm of the city or the constant smiles from the people. You’ll read reviews that say Utopia is the […]
