I’m calling this post “part 2” because you may recall a while back when I wrote a post on Getting By Using Public Transit in San Diego. In that post, I detailed the different public transit options in and around San Diego County to help you, the visitor to my fine city, find your way around.
You all know me as that person who is always writing about her amazing trips and adventures, but in addition to being a travel writer, I’m also a graphic designer. After all, I have to pay the bills somehow! In my professional career, I’ve learned a lot about visual communication and I’ve noticed that I often get questions about these things from people who aren’t in the profession. Today I’m going to talk about photography usage, because it’s something I think a lot of bloggers out there could benefit from learning about.
Ok. I’ve been meaning to write a post about this place for a while. You see, when I found out I have celiac and can’t eat gluten, this food lover went into a deep state of depression as I lamented all of the wonderful things I would never be able to eat again. There’s something about being told you have a medical reason not to eat certain foods that just makes you want them so badly. One such result of this spike in trendiness is my first experience eating a doughnut in years. And oh, it was delightful. I think a tear came to my eye and I requested a moment of silence so that just the doughnut and I could share this special moment together.
That place, my friends, is Sidecar Doughnuts in Costa Mesa, California.
When I discover a truly awesome restaurant, I want to share it with all of you so that you, too can discover the delicious joy and happiness that is dining there. My home of San Diego is , thankfully, home to a plethora of amazing restaurants for all tastes and budgets. Today, however, I would like to focus on a little gem in the Little Italy neighborhood called Underbelly.
I wanted to highlight five places in Vegas that I think are definitely worth checking out. I would also like to note that none of these are located on the strip, so you’ll have to venture out and explore new areas of the city to discover them. Trust me…it’s worth it.
Thankfully my Australian friends were absolutely amazing hosts and took us out for the day to some truly awesome places. I’m so thankful for that. One of those places was the Hunter Valley Wine Region. This is an area of New South Wales that one can reasonably drive to in a day trip out of Sydney. It’s a beautiful, rural area full of wineries and sweeping views. I had an amazing time tasting delicious wines and eating fantastic foods.
If you’re looking for a great place to go camping for the weekend in the San Diego area, look no further than the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park.
Ok, so last time I told you a little about my story and the steps I took (and continue to take) in order to achieve a lifestyle that allows me the flexibility to travel. This time, I’m going to talk a little more about what kinds of career options are out there for those of you who can’t just drop everything and start traveling. We don’t all have trust funds, so it takes a certain amount of hard work and dedication to craft the life of our dreams, but I’m here to tell you that it’s absolutely possible. With that, let’s get into some career options!
Take a moment to look at what is limiting you from achieving your travel dreams. Those reasons will be different for everybody depending on their personal situation, but I would be willing to bet that there is a significant amount of fear involved. Making a significant life change comes with a lot of uncertainty and the fear of the unknown and the possibility of negative consequences can be a powerful thing.
There’s something you should know if you’re planning on coming to Los Angeles: it’s a difficult place to find a parking spot in.You might laugh and think, no big deal…I can deal with that. Seriously though, I’m telling you: parking in Los Angeles is hard. Really hard. Telling you that it’s hard might be the understatement of the century, actually. Let me re-phrase that:
Finding parking in Los Angeles is an extremely, incredibly frustrating activity.
I mean, come ON. Who builds a city that has such crap public transportation that the entire city is forced to get around by car, and then NOT build in suitable parking? Honestly!
