Sometimes all you want to do is get away for the weekend, but might not have the spare cash. If you own or have access to a tent and a sleeping bag, I find that the best thing to do is go camping! The cost of a campsite per night is a fraction of the price of a hotel or hostel and there are usually tons of free activities to do around campgrounds or in the city or place you choose to camp at. So load up your car and try camping at Pismo Beach next time you’re in the mood for an escape!
I’ve recently returned from a fun-filled bachelorette weekend that I organized for my sister in New Orleans. I spent months planning it and thought I’d share some helpful bachelorette weekend planning tips for anyone trying to plan a successful trip for a group of people they may not know very well or at all.
If you’ve ever planning a trip for yourself before, you know how stressful it can be. From the travel arrangements and finding a centrally located accommodations to planning a rough itinerary for when you arrive; it takes time and energy to put together a trip you’ll enjoy. Now take that and times it by ten when you plan a bachelorette weekend because you’re trying to plan a trip that ten other strangers will enjoy as well.
I’m back from a wonderful weekend away to Indio for Coachella. I thought I’d share with you all five essential festival tips. I’ve only been to Coachella twice now but am no newbie to music festivals in general. Many of the same things apply to all music festivals:
Over a month later I’m finally ready to share with you all my week away to Canada and NYC. The delay was mostly because it took me forever to whittle down the photos I wanted to share and edit this post to bite size pieces that I think would be helpful for fellow travelers and curious readers. So without further ado, I present a quick overview with a some tips from our trip!
Earlier this month I spent the weekend at a lake house. I was imagining Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves in the Nicolas Sparks movie, but that didn’t happen. It was definitely more of a typical cabin in the woods like any other.
This past weekend I attended the first annual Rock in Rio USA music festival . It’s a two weekend festival with different main acts each weekend. I went the pop weekend and had a blast listening to headliners Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars along with all the other great acts.
Rock in Rio USA is a spin off of the widely popular festival extravaganza in Rio de Janerio. Since this was the first year there were some bumps along the way, but overall the weekend was a blast. I wanted to share some tips and tricks for future festival goers because I couldn’t find anything on these things when I was trying to figure out what to expect for the weekend.
I had a lovely weekend in Shaver Lake with a great group of friends. I’ve been having some problems with my neck for the past week, so I wasn’t able to partake in the more fun activities like skiing or snowboarding, but it was still fun to hang around and catch-up with each other.
A few weeks ago, I took a solo trip to Seattle, Washington. I was testing out the waters to see how I felt about traveling alone and staying at hostels because I’m planning a trip abroad next year.
I was bad and didn’t post anything last week because I was busy getting supplies together for my camping trip last weekend. I spent Labor Day Weekend in Yosemite National Park camping at the Hodgdon Meadow campground. It was a fun weekend reunion with friends I haven’t seen in more than half a year. We did several hikes, the longest was to Cloud Rest. The view was beautiful but the seven mile trek back was no bueno.
I’m currently of the mindset to swear off of all long hikes after this, but I’m sure time will dull my memories and I’ll end up doing another one soon enough.
Oh boy, I have festival withdrawals already. Last weekend was so much fun at Outside Lands. I got to see friends I haven’t seen in months and make some new ones while listening to some awesome music.
