Of all my solo vacations, one of my favorites was Napa Valley. It was my second solo vacation and the longest (at that time). And for seven days, I rotated between wine tasting, dining out, walking around and being deliciously buzzed.
It was heaven.
And, two years after being in Napa for the first time, I got to go back, for work. Yes, I know how fortunate I am.
But it wasn’t all sipping champagne and laying by the pool, they were long days, but it was in a beautiful place, so I won’t complain too much.
We got to eat at amazing places, wine taste and go in a hot air balloon ride. Yes, it was just as amazing the second time. If you’re in Napa and looking for some amazing eats (of which there are many), I add Redd, Morimoto, Kitchen Door and Oenotri to my list from the first visit. All three were incredible. I also still dream about the lobster risotto with truffle and lemon at Redd. O-M-G.
So here are some photos from my five days there. I got a little Instagram happy while I was gone, and for good reason!
Visiting/Trepassing on winery property (shhhh)
The bar at Bouchon
Cheers to the mountains!
Me in the basket (be kind, I was up at 4:30 am)
One of the best US cappuccinos I’ve tasted
I always said I would come back for you Tartine lemon tart. xoxoxoxoxoxo
Seriously though, Napa makes me happy. I think that will join Nola on my list of favorite places. I just, love it. I would move there in a heartbeat. I have to go back here again soon, I cannot stay away.
What was one of your favorite vacations?
