Weekend in Richmond

The Jefferson Hotel, Richmond

Katie and I packed a lot into our quick weekend in Richmond–we arrived around 9pm on Friday and were on the road by 1pm Sunday. It’s a pretty easy trip from DC; we drove, but you can take the Amtrak down, too. I will say that it’s definitely a driving city so having a car was helpful, but we also took a couple of Ubers on Saturday night and they were easy to find and pretty inexpensive. Here’s what we did + what we ate (I’m still thinking about the food, especially the best donuts ever.)

Around the World: The Jefferson Hotel–Richmond, VA

A couple of weekends ago, Katie and I drove to Richmond for a weekend at The Jefferson Hotel. They invited us down to experience their newly renovated property, and spoiler: the hotel completely lives up to the hype it consistently receives.

Around the World: Sri Panwa – Phuket, Thailand

Sri Panwa – Phuket, Thailand

It’s been way too long since an Around the World post (where did the past 11 months go? I’m also blaming this on dropping posts from 5x/week to 3x/week) and I’m excited to bring them back! If you’ve been reading here awhile you may remember that I went to Thailand about a year and a half ago and spent a few days in Phuket. The resorts there are nothing short of spectacular–this is where we stayed–and they alone are going to have you adding the country to your bucket list!
