How to get to Castaic Lake, California

Beach Day at a Lake

It's mid-July at the time of this post and both COVID-19 and the California Heat have many of us drained.  In Los Angeles, the need to get outside the house has driven people crazy to the point that many beaches are nearly closed due to overcrowding!  So instead, we decided to take a Beach Day somewhere less common - at a lake!  Let's go!

Abalone Cove Reserve, Palos Verdes, California

Beach Trails in Rancho Palos Verdes

The beach trail is calling and we're going. We haven't done much hiking close to the ocean, I can only name a few short hikes on our list like Point Dume Beach, El Matador Beach and Parker Mesa Overlook. 

I've been missing the smell of the ocean, hearing the waves and walking on sand. This is going to be a relaxing and short hike along the beachline of Rancho Palos Verdes. Let's go!

Traveling Plants

How my plants showed me the world 

The COVID Pandemic started my great journey to loving indoor houseplants. Aside from growing up with more than twenty houseplants in the Philippines. Yes, my mum was a plant hoarder, and yes she has a green thumb and I have lived most of my days with clean air thanks to the army of plants in our house. I guess the pandemic was a good trigger for my dormant love for houseplants. Nature always has it's ways through my heart and now that I'm a plant mum I feel closer to her, and my mum too.

I've also realized how my plants are native to different countries. My plants have shown me a unique way of traveling inside my home. I'm not going crazy but this thought has entertained my wanderlust soul to travel in a none typical way. Let's go!

Around the world with bae

Like Tre, I came to Singapore full of hopes and dreams. I also wanted to use Singapore as a stepping stone to see the rest of the world. We have one of the busiest airport transits in the world, which is good enough to show how easy and convenient it is to make that dream a reality. I also met the man I was going to do it for the rest of my life. Let's go!

Corriganville Park, California

How to get to Corriganville Park in Simi Valley

The quarantine lockdown in Los Angeles started around March 2020 and since then we have not hiked. It's been challenging staying home on the weekends, thou we've been working all this time during the lockdown. I feel like the weekend is my bonding time with my husband and with nature, especially we only get to spend our time together every other weekend due to his work schedules. However, this stay at home order has made me realize how much I love staying home too. I get to enjoy cooking, taking care of my plants - this is something new and I'm obsessed about it! , and do more of my paintings. 

When the lockdown order was lifted and some hiking trails reopened I was overwhelmed with joy. A little bit worried but happy about it. We didn't want to expose ourselves that much so we only did a short hike in Simi Valley. 
Let's go!

Weekend Trip to Seattle, Washington

4 Days in Seattle

My birthday month is here and I'm celebrating it in Seattle with my husband and friends. It's an exciting trip for me as I've never been to Washington. 

Seattle, Washington is located on the West Coast of the United States. I heard from my friend that it rains a lot in their state but she likes it. I'm curious to see the other side of the US, the colder area if I may say. We packed our rain gears as we're going on a rainy month. 
Let's go!

Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Cliffside Villages in Italy

Positano is a small village in Amalfi Coast, situated in the Province of Salerno of the Southern part of Italy. A beach town painted with colorful buildings, boutiques, and cafes. 

Our trip to Amalfi was very productive and satisfying. We have Explored the town of Amalfi Coast, went for a boat ride to Capri Island, and Hike the Path of the Gods. But the fun never stops and this time around we're going to a famous holiday destination in the country, not just great for families but most especially for lovebirds. And I for one don't mind having another honeymoon again.
