I Have Two Passions in This World: My Career + Traveling

Welcome! Iā€™m Alisha Rose

A full-time Registered Nurse, dog mom, California transplant, and a little travel obsessed.

About Me

A Little Bit About Me

  • Born and raised on the East Coast
  • Iā€™m an operating room nurse and I love my job. I could never imagine a life without it.
  • I met my future husband in the halls of the operating room. What can I say, Iā€™m a sucker for a guy in scrubs.
  • 6 years ago I made the gutsy decision to move my entire life across the country to sunny Los Angeles with my boyfriend (yes the one in the scrubs!)
  • Fast forward to now, we have traded SoCal for redwoods, wineries, and Bay views and planted our roots in Oakland, California.
  • We recently had our dream wedding in Italy, after postponing three times.
  • And I have saved the best for last. I am a dog mom to to two goofy English Golden Retriever. They loves belly rubs, lots of pets, and like to crash most of our vacations.

We love exploring our beautiful home of California and taking every opportunity we can for day trips, weekend getaways, and maximizing our PTO to go on international vacations.

In 2022, I was busy…

There are ways to live an adventure-filled life of travel without forgetting about your career. In 2022 alone, I have been on 30 flights, visited 11 states, and had a 3-week international vacation in Italy where we got married. Not to mention many day trips in the Bay Area and road trips to different parts of California.

None of which was travel for work and I still managed to work my full-time job at the hospital.

That’s a lot and Iā€™m not saying it’s for everyone, but I have learned a thing or two about perfecting the weekend warrior lifestyle and finding a work-life balance.  

On Travel Today Work Tomorrow, you will find realistic and practical itineraries for out of the country vacations, weekend trips in the US, dog-friendly trips, and how to travel more with a full-time job. I have already done the research, created the itineraries, and will provide all of the things I wish we knew before our travels.

No postponing vacation plans or excuses that you do not have time to travel. I will show you the ropes! Let’s make the most out of every opportunity to travel. You never know, it could be your only shot in life to see that part of the world. Looking forward to connecting with you soon

Dog Travel Tips & Guides

I am a dog mom and noticed a lot of locations lack updated travel guides for people traveling with their furry best friends. Sometimes I can spend hours and hours researching a destination looking for dog friendly hotels, hikes, and restaurants. I am hoping to simplify that process for you by adding all of our guides and tips to help you plan your next dog friendly vacation in California.
