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 […]

ASBEACHHOUSEKOHPHANGANTHAILAND5-ALISONINWONDERLAND

Koh Phangan is the Thai island where the Full Moon parties are held every month. It is the party island. When booking a hotel for this island we wanted a cool place where we would meet a lot of people for the Full Moon Party. We read a review that said A’s Beach Place was […]

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. […]

Sky Bar at State Tower – Bangkok, Thailand

SKYBARATSTATETOWERBANGKOKTHAILAND3-ALISONINWONDERLAND

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 […]

Bondi Beach – Sydney, NSW, Australia

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 […]

Campuhan Bridge – Ubud, Bali Indonesia

CAMPUHANBRIDGEUBUDINDONESIA1-ALISONINWONDERLAND

This is my favorite spot in Ubud, but all of Ubud is amazing. The bridge looks out to a jungle of overgrown vines and trees and a river that all looks fake because it is so perfect. Bridges Bali is a restaurant right by the bridge and even though we never ate there, it’s definitely […]

Letná Park – Prague, Czech Republic

LETNAPARKPRAGUACZECHREPUBLIC2-ALISONINWONDERLAND

I don’t think I’ve ever been more in love with a view than the one from Letná Park (Letenské Sady) in Prague. Something about it just draws me in. Prague is a magical place to begin with but sitting at this little restaurant, sipping wine and looking out to the Charles Bridge is by far […]

Hotel Cafe – Hollywood, CA USA

HOTELCAFEHOLLYWOODCA-ALISONINWONDERLAND

Hotel Cafe has all of the qualities of a great venue: dim lighting, stiff drinks, attractive people due to the dim lighting, good décor and great music that sounds good. I recently saw the Barr Brothers perform there. Brad Barr, the singer, asked the audience if anyone by any chance had a guitar slide that […]
