About Me

When I started law school back in 2006, my classmates and I had to introduce ourselves and tell each other what our dream career would be if we weren’t going into law.  I said, “Hi, I’m Ilana and in an alternate life I’d love to be a travel writer.”

Despite my day job in the legal field, my passion has always been to travel and talk about my adventures.  I’ve visited 40+ countries so far, and I’m always planning my next big trip.  (Next up: France!) But because I’ve always identified so strongly as a traveler, I felt like the pressure was majorly on when I was planning my honeymoon.  My then-fiancé/now-husband and I had some ideas of where we wanted to go, but we needed guidance beyond what our Lonely Planet books and generic travel websites provided.  Sure, I could find cheap airfare for ourselves on kayak.com, but really, where should we go?  I decided then that once the wedding hoopla died down I needed to start a honeymoon travel blog to help other overwhelmed couples plan their honeymoons with confidence.

When I’m not traveling or planning other friends’ honeymoons, I’m most likely either at a concert or a taqueria in San Francisco with my husband Aaron and dog Ginger.
