I was inspired to write this post because I saw this question on a travel message board I’m a member of and it brought back a flood of memories from that day in Italy when I decided to visit Pisa. I was on my honeymoon and spending the […]
When it comes to Los Angeles coastal communities, places like Santa Monica and Malibu get all the glory. However, there’s a beautiful community in the South Bay called Rancho Palos Verdes that I think is definitely worth checking out.
This one is for all you Southern California campers out there. A camping weekend can be such a fun little getaway where you can relax, get out into nature, have some fun, go hiking, and just enjoy a change of scenery.
If you’re on a budget, camping can be an amazing getaway that can help fuel your desires to travel and explore all while staying within the confines of your tight budget.
If you’re in Southern California like me, you might be looking for good campsites that aren’t too far from home. Sure, it’s fun to go camping at Sequoia or Yosemite or Big Sur, but those places are a pretty long drive to get to, and sometimes you just need to get away for a weekend.
Have you been wanting to travel but just haven’t gotten around to actually doing it for one reason or another? Perhaps you don’t have the money or you have other things that have been getting in your way.
It’s time to make your travel dreams a reality.
I love Mexican food! It is, in my opinion, one of the most delicious cuisines in the world. No offense to other delicious world cuisine, because I loooooooove some of you as well, but today we’re going to put the spotlight on my favorite neighbors to the South.
I’m almost ashamed to admit that it took me 33 years of living in Southern California to finally get myself to Joshua Tree National Park. On the other hand, it made my recent excursion over there a delightful, fresh experience for this So Cal native who has “done it all” (although apparently not, hahaha).
I recently traveled to Seattle, as you’re probably all aware of. I wanted to recap some of the great things I saw and did while I was there in case any of you are planning your own Seattle adventures. I should preface this post with a note on how things work in Seattle. It’s a pretty big city consisting of neighborhoods. It’s a tough town to drive around and park (but we did it, so it’s not impossible). Public transport is decent but doesn’t go everywhere, so when you’re planning your Seattle adventure you’re going to want to look into the things you want to see and do before you decide whether or not you are going to want to rent a car.
This is, primarily, a travel blog, but I like to write about general life happiness and wellness also because the fact of the matter is that most of us can’t live our lives in a bubble where we float from one fabulous location to the next. We can’t all satiate our wanderlust at all moments, and there are days, weeks, or even months at a time where life can feel like a mundane, dreary routine of monotony.
So what is it about cultures where people are all pretty much slender vs. my own? What are they doing that I’m not, and most importantly…how can I incorporate these habits into my own life when I’m at home?
If you have kids, you might be thinking it’s too expensive to fly your entire family somewhere for vacation, but you might also be worried about the prospect of spending extremely long periods of time with your kids cooped up in a car. I get it. I get a little nutty on road trips, too, and I’m in my 30’s!
