Looking Back on 2015

It’s crazy how time seems to fly by the older we get. I remember in high school, life seemed to just crawl as I wished for the school year to end. And now, as I sit here as a 25 year old lady, life just passes me by when all I want is for it to slow down immensely. As I reflect back on this past year, I’m actually very surprised at all of the things that happened, especially travel-wise.…

The Grand Rooms Tour of Hearst Castle

When you’re feeling like you want a piece of Europe but you’re stuck in California, or if you just want to see a pimped out house, a visit to Hearst Castle might be the cure for your cravings. Built by the newspaper mogul back in the early 1900s, William Randolf Hearst, this castle is situated on a hill near San Luis Obispo and overlooks the Pacific Ocean in the distance. It took nearly 30 years from 1919 – 1947 for…

Video: New Mexico Highlights

To wrap up the video portion of our trip to New Mexico, I’ve compiled a bunch of video clips and made a highlights video. There is still one more post I need to write about from our trip, which involves aliens (!?) but I was too excited not to show this video to you guys, haha.

Meeting Mindy

Ever since finding out that Mindy Kaling was a writer on The Office, I became a fan of hers. When she started The Mindy Project, I was officially hooked on this lady. She is smart, funny, adorably dressed, and such a great role model for anyone that is ambitious. I was scrolling through instagram one time and, as if the angels were looking out for me, she had made a post saying how sorry she was for having to reschedule her book…

VIDEO: Sledding Down White Sands National Monument

As promised in my blog post about White Sands National Monument, here is the video format of my experience! I’m trying to be more consistent about these videos, as I really enjoy making them. The title for both the blog post and the video involves sledding, for good reason. You’ll see more of my sledding fail in the video than the blog post, for sure. Haha.

Sledding Down White Sands

Three hours away from Carlsbad Cavern is this magical place called White Sands National Monument. It is a place about seven miles away from the small city of Alamogordo, and might be the main reason people even stay in that city. When we checked into our hotel, one of the first things the front desk clerk asked was “are you guys here to see the White Sands?”. The strange thing about White Sands National Monument is that you just don’t…

6 Hours in Santa Barbara

For the longest time, my friend Cara and I have been talking about taking a day trip to Santa Barbara. Our schedules kept clashing, but we finally made it work! The drive to Santa Barbara was nice and smooth. We left L.A. just after the morning rush traffic, at around 10:30, and it took about a couple of hours to get there. The weather was also nice and gloomy, making the drive even more pleasant. Our first stop was the…

25 Fun Facts

If you didn’t know, I have a YouTube channel. A dead channel, but there it is. I actually love doing videos and have been wanting to start making them more regularly, which is what I plan on doing from here on out. Two more videos are already being worked on that pertains to travel :) But to start the resurgence of this channel, it seemed fitting to do a fun little video of just random facts you might find interesting…

600FT Underground in Carlsbad Cavern

It never crossed my mind that the United States had something like wonderous caves. But then my friend Anna sent me a list of amazing caves which included Carlsbad Caverns, and then while watching the Planet Earth documentary, it was also featured in their Caves episode. So to find out that Carlsbad Caverns is in New Mexico immediately made the State that much cooler and more exciting to visit. We flew into Albuquerque, New Mexico and ended up driving about…
