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.
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.
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!
We can’t all travel all the time. I wish we could! However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun lives full of new and exciting experiences, relaxing getaways, and fun filled weekends. I tend to lean heavily on the staycation as a means to get me through the boring parts of life between “real” travel experiences.
Is it just me, or is it absurdly expensive to rent a car these days? I’ve often found it’s more affordable to fly all the way to Europe where the public transportation and train systems are good than it is for me to fly a few states over and visit a city where I need to rent a car. What gives?
If you’re looking for a great travel destination where a rental car is absolutely not necessary, you may want to think about one of these places.
Have you ever gone on a fabulous adventure to an amazing new place…only to come home and find yourself hopelessly depressed? Welcome to the story of my life. Post-travel depression is a real thing that I think most of us with an insatiable desire to roam the globe tend to feel on a regular basis.
