ROAD TRIP SERIES: JEAN DRY LAKE BED!

Image
Hello everyone,

Here we go again! Back in the car, doing a bit more off-road driving (while crossing my fingers we don't get stuck somewhere for the second time), visiting the well known Jean Dry Lake Bed in Sloan, Nevada. This time, this trip felt more like a backyard outing because this place is super close, only 45 minutes away. It didn't require any long preparation like the previous road trips. 
As the name hints, this is an open dry lake. It's very popular when it comes to photo-shoots, videos or films being shot there. For example, "The Hangover" contains some scenes from this dry, yet magical spot. 
It was my first time visiting it! I love the simplicity, yet the raw beauty of it. Like the ocean, the eyes see beyond the horizon! Only difference is that the ground here has endless dry spots, which feel like they would crack any minute with every step. How cool is that? 
Also, on the way to Jean Dry Lake Bed you can make a stop at the Seven Magic Mountains beca…

JULY 2020 FAVORITES!

Image
Hello everyone,

I haven't done a favorites post since last year. It's not that I haven't had any new discoveries...I just have been focusing on creating other ideas, which have kept my mind busy and freshly inspired. 
However, July is perfect for sitting down and sharing with you a few highlights in my life because I love the summer and in many ways I've had an interesting month. It has been unpredictable, fun, sunny and really worth documenting. How fun would it be to look back on this post in a year or two and see what I have been loving? Also, I'm super curious to know what you have been loving as well, so don't be shy to share your thoughts with me!!!😉

In a way, I'm feeling a bit nostalgic about this month because summer is slowly slipping away. I wish I could magically freeze this season. I can't get enough of the hot days, the vibrant colors, the fun summer getaways, the music that keeps my heart beating...TODO!💛

Here I am...saying goodbye to July w…

ROAD TRIP SERIES: CATHEDRAL GORGE STATE PARK!

Image
Hello everyone,

Today's destination is a sight to remember, so don't blink even for a second! Did you just blink?🤣

This is our third road trip so far! I hope you're LOVING this travel series!!! 🥰

My sister and I decided to head toward Panaca, Nevada to explore the one and only Cathedral Gorge State Park! It took us three hours to get there, the longest drive from our previous two trips, but nonetheless, super FUN. The whole ride there was very scenic with green fields and roaming cows enjoying their day. Yep, I was amazed...I haven't seen a real cow since forever. These exact views brought back memories of the green, small village I grew up in. Also, there were lots of rock formations keeping the road interesting, making the time of this drive seem shorter. Just like Rascal Flatts sing in their hit song, " Life is a highway, I want to ride it all night long"!   
So let's ride together toward Cathedral Gorge! 🚗











Cathedral Gorge was kind of a surprise to me be…

ROAD TRIP SERIES: BIG DUNE!

Hello everyone,

My road trip series continues...today we're making a stop at BIGDune!!!🏜 
This one is going to get a bit sandy and a lot crazy because I've got an epic experience to tell you all about. Something that felt straight-out of an episode of survivor. Getting there was a challenge, but the epic sunset, the gorgeous sparkly sky full of stars on the way home and the lunar eclipse were so worth it. Keep reading because you won't want to miss this story!🤗🙉

The journey started somewhat spontaneous! My sister and I decided within a day to head to Big Dune. It's the Amargosa Sand Dunes, which are about 100 miles north of Las Vegas...approximately an hour and a half drive. This location is like discovering the secret "Sahara" because not many people know about it, except for locals. That being said, there was absolutely no one around. Not a single person when we got into a bit of trouble with the car. I'll tell you more next!
So we get ready, pack a few …

ROAD TRIP: VALLEY OF FIRE!

Image
Hello everyone,

Today's post is going to be FIRE!🔥 Speaking metaphorically of course, because we're going on a road trip to one of Nevada's most symbolic state parks called Valley of Fire. It's full of red shaped sandstone formations, which are so worth seeing in person...vivid, majestic, and a whole lot of picturesque. Are you ready? Grab your bestie (like me) and let this desert trip begin, NOW!!!

This past weekend on Saturday, my sister and I decided to spend the whole day there. We packed our bags. Okay, I admit I packed two bags🤣 and drove to the Valley of Fire. It was about an hour drive from where we live. Just perfect to warm-up my vocals in the car...hahaha. Yep, I sing my heart-out while I enjoy the surrounding views from the tiny old wooden farm houses to the endless green fields. Such a fun adventure especially since this is our first road trip of 2020.🤗

Fun fact: The name Valley of Fire, comes from the fact that the whole valley looks like it's on fire…
