Weekend Escape: Little River’s Andiron

Mike Mike Mike…Mike what day is it Mike? Click here if you have no idea what that is referring to. It’s Wednesday, y’all. Two more workdays til the weekend. And a mini Prague reunion at Oktoberfest by the Bay in San Francisco!

Some lovely things have happened recently–

  • Booked my Eurostar ticket from London to Paris! Now, all transportation bookings are complete! Unless I make a side trip..
  • I figured out what neighborhood/area to look to stay in London, thanks to the fabulous Mrs. O. She recommended anywhere in the West End. I happily set forth searching!
  • Once I narrowed down which neighborhood to stay in, I perused various house listing sites (think Airbnb, VRBO, Go With Oh!, etc.) for days. I was thrilled actually found a reasonably-priced place in London’s West End on Airbnb!
  • Thanks to the lovely ladies at The Lazy Travelers, who confirmed that my NYC neighborhood picks were acceptable, I now know which streets to stay around (errr.. below? I’m new.) and which to stay away from when booking an apartment for that leg of the trip. NYC is the final accommodation I have to book!

Speaking of accommodations… Over Labor Day weekend, I headed up to Mendocino for a little r&r before a crazy work week/weekend. After lots of back and forth-ing between options, we decided to stay at the Andiron Seaside Inn & Cabins in Little River, CA, just a short drive from Mendocino.

Mint Fierce

It’s Tuesday, and I need a drink. Since it was like a million degrees in Napa this weekend, I’ve been non-stop drooling daydreaming about this fabulous concoction the fabulous Kortni fabulously created. The name is a combination of an inside joke of ours, and the delicious and unobtrusive mint flavor. I suppose tonight’s the perfect night to bring my dreams to life. After work, that is.
