Hey bloggersphere, Remember when blogging was like having a diary where you update about your thoughts and feelings of everyday life? I don’t think I’m the only one who used to use it like that but if that’s the case then simply disregard all that I’m about to say. I’ve been thinking a lot, lately, … Continue reading Digital Exhaustion from Commercialized Blogging
Exploring the charming streets of Marseille has continued to fuel my love for Southern France. We were sitting around a table that was a bit wobbly. Think it could use a piece of cardboard or two beneath it to level it out. We ordered some drinks while my friend, Sam, was looking for a decent, … Continue reading Marseille
We spent 6 days, and 5 nights in Iceland. Neither one of us were really keen with the true down-to-ground camper lifestyle but with an adventure seeking, as well as budgeting, mentality, we managed to put together a plan that worked fantastically. Our goal was to see as many things as we can, as we … Continue reading Photo Itinerary through Iceland
"Know first who you are and then adore yourself accordingly." -Jojo Moyes I asked her, “is it normal to feel this way?” She nodded her head as if it were a cue to agree with me but she didn’t open her mouth. I asked again, “is it normal to not want to be around anyone?” … Continue reading That time I discovered I was an Introvert
From the moment we left the airport, there was never a period of time when we weren’t being affectionate towards one another. I kept calling it, “disgustingly cute.” My self deprecating nature wouldn’t allow me to just simply enjoy the moment, I had to remember the whole feet-planting promises that I made myself. I found it remarkably wonderful that we got so comfortable with one another in such a short period of time. It was as if I knew him my entire life. Simply put, we just clicked straight away. While in Paris, I felt that we got swept up in the romantic setting. However, if you were to choose a place in time where you can be completely and foolishly romantic, wouldn’t you choose Paris? This utterly photogenic city has been an incredible backdrop to our love story.
I told myself that I will do whatever it takes to be happy. For 2017, it meant saying "no thanks" to a lot of things; settling for under appreciating jobs, inauthentic friendships, relationships, bad habits, etc. I placed more effort towards doing things that made me more excited for life and a lot of that had to do with traveling. I am not rich by any means, I'm actually pretty broke lol but I just know how to search for deals and steals while also cutting the cost of things that I don't necessarily need. While some people find their happy in things like partying or shopping, I find it with working really hard and saving a ton. At the end of the day, I would like to think that I'm a responsible enough adult whereas I can live a comfortable life within my means. Choose what makes you happy, folks. That's really all I can say. Looking back on this phenomenal year, I am quite pleased with myself for doing what I wanted to do instead of doing what I thought I'm supposed to do.
The flight came to a rumbling halt as our plane landed at Gatwick Airport, different from Heathrow, something that I’ve learned while landing. This entire time, I wrongfully assumed that Gatwick/Heathrow were the same thing. Don’t ask me why. I don’t know, I just assumed. Flashback to a month ago when I gleefully said, “it … Continue reading 7 hrs and 40 mins layover: To Explore or Not Explore?
“How did it get so late so soon?” - Dr. Seuss I have been thinking a lot about time, and there is a tied emotion for which I have no words to articulate. I know that I have been wandering around this universe with this incredibly dark cloud following me. The familiar feeling of resentment … Continue reading Time Won’t Give You a Minute
Our experience with driving in Iceland. Sometimes, you just gotta take a leap of faith and hope for the best. We're glad that we rented a car while we were there but we were also very fortunate with the weather. I can't imagine driving in a hailing blizzard. Here are some shots of Iceland from our road trip.
