Windows down, arm out the window, dusty warm air coming in and somewhere in the middle of the desert. The simple reasons I love exploring the Southwest.. I’ve got to admit I’ve been on a lot of road trips in my life and no route compares to the one I’m about to share with you. It’s a road trip that everyone must make once in their life - put it on the bucketlist right now! Because I’m here to share with you the ultimate roadtrip itinerary. I know it can get pretty stressful finding the best places to go and how to fit it all into one route.. So my friends, I gathered all of the most beautiful places in the Southwest that you MUST SEE at least once in your life and I condensed it into one easy itinerary for you so you can just hit the road and go!Read More
When was the last time you sat down with yourself? Had a deep talk with yourself? Connecting the parts of yourself that feel all over the place lately? When was the last time you took time to make sure you were okay? You did something that made you feel alive and happy? When was the last time you looked life in the eyes and said, “I’m doing this for ME!”Read More
After a really short flight from Iceland to Ireland we had finally landed in Dublin the start to our crazy week and a half in Ireland. Honestly I hadn’t heard or seen much about this beautiful country until a few months before when I found cheap tickets out of Iceland to here.
So when we first booked our tickets we knew we wanted to stay in the heart of Dublin for our first night to get the true Irish experience. We did just that by staying at Abbey Court Hostel - literally walking distance from everything. Touring all the bars, shops and cafes I realized one day in the city isn’t enough. There’s so much to see. After about 6 hours lost in the streets we got back to our hostel just in time for the pub crawl.Read More
It’s crazy how at one point I had only seen photos and videos of all the beautiful places I was just now running through. Wanting to be there and making my own memories and photos.. And then 6 years later I made it happen. It all felt like a blink of an eye but when my eyes shut in between - it was a dream. Iceland has this crazy way of making you feel like you’re running through your own imagination. Where the coast meets mountains around every corner, being able to stand at the foot of a glacier casually, seeing waterfalls that spray a mist on you from the second you step foot out of your car.
Iceland is just a crazy vast dreamland of every nature scene you could ever come up with.Read More
I just really felt myself getting lost here and feeling small.
Like I didn’t matter in that moment of time, because the only thing that mattered was what was right in front of me and the time I had with it.
I just was so appreciative of life this day and kept holding on to every little moment - I didn’t want to let it go.Read More
Once I left Krabi I was honestly scared.. Scared to not have moments like the ones I just did, scared that transportation would be hard to find, scared I would get sick of island life. But everything I was once scared of just turned into everything I loved about Ko Lanta.
Ko Lanta is such a quiet island and so small you can get from one side to the other within probably 2 hours - that’s if you’re not making any stops.Read More
So first things first I booked my ticket to Bangkok leaving from LA. If you guys personally know me you know I live in Seattle area.
But when I saw a $450 ticket roundtrip HOW COULD I PASS IT UP?!
From there a month later I booked my tickets from Seattle to LAX. Only $150 round trip.
So for $600 or $650 after tax I got a complete roundtrip ticket to Bangkok from Seattle.
How you might ask.. Let's get into it!Read More
The beach, rainforests, beautiful waterfalls, hot springs, wildlife and more!
I personally live near Seattle, WA so from there over to the Olympic National Park is only about three hours. Yes that sounds like a long time but you get to take a ferry over and it feels so untouched and wild over there.
I'm going to give you an itinerary that you can complete for how many ever days you feel necessary. OR just pick and choose some of these places for whatever fits you!
This is the route I usually take when I go over:Read More
