Globetrotting - A Day in Glacier National Park & Whitefish, MT

We are huge supporters of our National Parks but none more than Glacier National Park in Montana, where we spend as much time in the summers as humanly possible.  Glacier is over 1500 square miles of mountains, rivers, lakes, glaciers and wild animals running to the border with Canada.  With over 700 hiking trails its hard to not get lost in the wild here (in a good way).   The famous Going to the Sun Road takes you to the top of Logan Pass to the visitor center where the very knowledgable rangers can give you a rundown of the best...

NAME: Audrey Alice Ruhland HOMETOWN: Farmington, Connecticut CURRENTLY LIVING: San Francisco, California OCCUPATION: Marketer by week, traveler and extremely novice sailor by weekend FAVORITE TRIP: The one I just got home from!

How we built it?

How we built it?

 Inspiration: We were inspired by a trip that founders Jenna and Charley took to Cambodia, and the beautiful imagery they brought back. Especially at Angkor Wat, the thickness of the jungle intertwined with ancient stone monuments was breathtaking, and we wanted to evoke this idea of man-made architecture being blurred into natural forms. Charley had taken a photograph of the 'iconic' view of Angkor Wat reflecting into the water, and as we started to play around with repeating this image a pattern took shape that was reminiscent of sound waves. We love the way the building becomes an acoustic image,...

From France we took off for Italy...

Globetrotting - Carmel Valley Ranch

I love visiting amazing hotels in the off season.  You may not get perfect weather but you get great rates and quiet spots.  This was particularly true of a February visit to Carmel Valley Ranch in Northern California.  This spot has lavender farms and homemade honey on site with a signature bee experience. Visiting in February meant taking advantage of the in room fire places and bundling up for a hike to their inspiration point.  Great for kids or a romantic vacation any time of year. I suggest a two night stay with dinner at the hotel's great restaurant, with...
