I haven’t had a real vacation, one where I wasn’t working 12 hour days, in over 2 years. The last actual vacation I took was to St. Martin with my handsome husband. I love my job as a travel writer, and it’s allowed me to see places of the world I only dreamt about. But for those who have ever traveled with me on a work trip, you know it’s not a vacation. Sure I get to eat amazing foods, meet incredible people and see the most beautiful places, but I’m so exhausted by the end of the day, I often fall asleep with my clothes on. It’s a dream, but it’s exhausting.

Which is why I’m thrilled at the prospect of planning our next big vacation. Due to unforeseen budget issues (and some less than desirable turmoil in Eastern Europe), we aren’t able to take the huge trip we were planning this year (to Bulgaria, Russia and Romania). So, we’re already discussing our next big trip for 2015. There were quite a few very big contenders, but we’ve nailed down our destination.

Can you guess where we’re going?


I’ll give you a few hints. It’s the land of Pokemon, sushi, sake, Tapei and Tokyo. If you can’t guess it from there, well, you need to read a book. That’s right friends, we’re going to Japan and Taiwan! My in-laws (E’s brother and his wife) just recently moved to Japan to teach at an international school for two years. So, during their summer break, we’re going to fly over and spend two amazing weeks in Southern and Central Japan, and then hope on over to Taiwan for a few days too. We’re planning to be away for a full 14 days (about 9 in Japan and 5 in Taiwan) and I’m already thrilled at the prospect of completely disconnecting.


Granted, I can never completely disconnect since I’m addicted to instagram, but I definitely won’t be as glued to my computer and phone as I am now. We’ll have two weeks to explore and immerse ourselves without the pressures of work or trying to keep up with social media numbers. As much as I need this, E needs it even more and I know he’s absolutely thrilled at the prospect of a few weeks off the grid. Whether or not he’ll be able to put down work for that long is up for grabs, but regardless we’ll have an amazing time. I’m already counting down the minutes.

Crock Pot Peaches n’ Cream Oatmeal

Amazing peaches n cream oats


Serves about 6.
Prep time: >10 minutes
Cook time: About 6 hours


  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • About 2 cups sliced peaches
  • 3 cups low-fat milk
  • 1 cup light cream
  • About 2 -4 tablespoons honey*
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

*Depending on your sweetness preference


  1. Spray the basin of a crock pot with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the steel cut oats into the basin of the crock pot. Pour the milk, cream and honey (I used about 2 1/2 – 3 tablespoons) over the oats. Mix in the honey and cinnamon.
  2. Stir in the sliced peaches. Cover the basin with lid and cook on low for about 3 – 4 hours, stirring every hour or so to ensure the oats don’t burn.
  3. Serve the oats with more peach slices and extra liquid for taste.

    Peaches and oatmeal are my favorite. I like to sauté my peach and then stir it into my oatmeal when they're both hot. Delicious!
