3 days in Los Angeles + free things to do in LA

My favorite kind of adventure is the spontaneous kind. The best feeling is when you have an idea of your adventure, but it doesn't go entirely to plan. You get the best stories out of them! I had some airline credits that needed to be used by the end of this month, so my sister…

San Juan Islands, Washington Lookout

Day Trip to San Juan Islands, Washington: A Photo Diary

We had set our alarms for 3 am to catch the 6 am ferry ride from Anacortes to the San Juan Islands. It was extremely brutal waking up that early since 1) I'm 100%, not a morning person, and 2) I was on staycation. But for an adventure, I will ALWAYS make exceptions. My family…

A Week in Oahu, Hawaii 2021: A Photo Diary

It was 2 p.m. in Honolulu when we landed at the airport. When we were waiting for the captain to turn off the seatbelt sign, I knew that this trip was going to be filled with more normalcy than my last trip in November during the height of Covid. Back in SEATAC, we were given…

Traveling to Hawaii During COVID

It's wild to believe that it has been a whole year since we have been quarantining and socially distancing from our "normal routines." Fortunately, restrictions are starting to lift across the world including the US allowing us to slowly reach a bit of normalcy. Even though having limitations on traveling to most destinations is a…

What to Expect For Your First Time in Bali

It's taken me forever to write up this blog post as it's been four months since we've been in Bali - but here it finally is, friends. Oh, Bali, there are a million things I can say about this beautiful Indonesian island. It's hot, humid, and HOT, but the views are stunning and the people…

A Weekend in Vancouver, B.C. - What To Do In Vancouver, Canada

A Weekend in Vancouver, B.C. Canada

My sister and I visited Canada for the first time back in June. It was the best and first spontaneous weekend adventure I have ever taken. I have always thought of myself as a spontaneous person, but after that weekend I now understand how freeing it feels. So basically what I'm saying is, take as…

Snow Day in Seattle - 2019

Snow Day in Seattle: Making History

You may have heard on the news, (or not) that Seattle decided to make history happen during the week of Super Bowl Sunday. I like to call this event a Super Bowl miracle because my dreams definitely came true that week. Generally, in Seattle, the temperature doesn't drop low enough for the rain to turn…

Sunday in Hood River, Oregon

A Sunday in Hood River, Oregon

Oregon is one of the coolest states ever (not that I'm biased or anything) and is the place that I will always call home. We drove an hour east to a little town called Hood River because I was on the hunt for the popular picturesque scene of the famous Mt. Hood sitting behind a…

8 Hours In Seattle

Last month my sister came for a last minute visit from California to hang out with me for the 4th of July. I love it when I get visits from people it gets me excited and it gives me a reason to do all of the touristy things and get excited all over again. Of…
