I recently visited my sister in Colorado and I almost forgot how much I love Colorado. I had so much fun this last time, it reminded me of my very first time visiting her.
Have you ever watched the movie A Walk To Remember with Mandy Moore and Shane West? It’s one of those Nicholas Sparks, will make you cry forever, book turned to movie?
Well if you haven’t, you should if you want a good cry. But for now I’ll just briefly explain a scene in the movie where West took Moore to the middle of this empty road and made her stand and place her feet in two different spots. When she opened them he told her that she could cross off being in two places at one time off her bucket list because she was straddling the state line. So after that moment, I had a huge obsession of being in two places at once.
So instead of Shane West bringing me to place, I found my own.
Do you remember any time that really take your breath away? I’ve had a few. Like the first time I saw the Eiffel tower a few years ago, I almost cried speechless that I finally saw one of my dreams unfold before my eyes. It was just gorgeous and unreal.
I had another one of these moments not too long ago. As you may have noticed (or not) I’ve officially moved to a new state. I went from Cali to South Dakota and now I’m based out of Arizona! Now I won’t get into too much detail of my move to AZ, but I am officially a resident now considering I finally got my license and my car plates here!
If you can think of one of the most sought out attractions in Arizona, what comes to mind?
Vegas, the adult playground as many would say. If you’ve never been to the Sin City and you’re over 21, I would definitely recommend going there at least once in your life and letting loose. It’s a wonderful getaway, and since it’s only a 4-hour drive from So-Cal, it was an easy and fun getaway (that was when I lived in San Diego).
I got a nice suite at the Signature Hotel behind the MGM Grand. It’s the perfect place, in my opinion and we love staying there for the weekend. It’s our go-to nice hotel.
While yes, most people go to Vegas to get wasted, gamble, dance, and get crazy, there are also lots of fun things to do that don’t require a lot of drinking and a massive hangover the next day.
Queue in the High Roller.
Before I moved to South Dakota, I honestly had no idea almost any of the beautiful things I saw in the western part of the So-Dak even existed.
But now I am quite glad I ventured out and made my way to all these beautiful places.
Hello all my awesome friends and fellow travelers, I am still reporting here in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and life has been busy and great. I finally have the blogging bug once again. But I’ve been so busy with life that it’s been hard to be consistent with this blog, but now that I have a grasp at my current adjustements of life I will finally post all the awesome places that you should all know about and see!
I will be traveling back to my hometown of San Diego to a mountain town that is an awesome getaway for everyone.
Since it’s that time for the Travel & Adventure Expo in San Diego again. I wanted to share a moment that made my life so much more awesome. (I’m sure you already know, but check out the video below [Yes, that did rhyme])
(Please excuse the shake in my voice when I ask her a question, I was talking to my travel idol, you can only image all the nerves running in body)
So with that being said, I kept telling myself that 2014 was going to be my year (just like every other year is) and I truly made sure it was. I did some amazing things and accomplished so many awesome goals (Europe, job promotion, etc). Today, I want to share with everyone another great moment of my 2014 year.
I want to share a little story of one of the many reasons why I decided traveling was going to be one my life goals. It all starts with one person. Samantha Brown.
I’m coming at you with another European addition of awkward travel intros by Yvonne at the Jardin du Luxembourg. If you want to see my last one in London, check it out here.
