A Daytrip To Bodega Bay

February 25, 2015

I haven’t really spoken much about life in California.

I love California because there’s so much beautiful nature everywhere!

Even city life isn’t that far away from a natural escape. Whether you feel like running off to the beach, the forest, the mountains or the desert, everything is less than a day’s drive away.

There are also so many cute little towns to discover.

Recently, Oliver and I took a day trip to Bodega Bay. It’s about two hours north of San Francisco. It’s so tiny I’m not sure if it qualifies as a town. You probably wouldn’t even notice it on a map.

So what makes Bodega Bay so special? Well… if you are a classic film buff and you love films where mother nature out of the blue goes on a rampage, then the town of Bodega Bay should sound familiar to you.

Ring any bells yet?

“The Birds” by Alfred Hitchcock was filmed in Bodega Bay!!

Oh, The Places You’ll Go! Road Trip To Amsterdam.

May 4, 2013

I’m still beaming from the road trip I just came back from!

Driving around in a car feels like absolute freedom. If you can’t remember the last time you went on a road trip, then it’s been much too long and you should go on one!

Our driving route took us out of Paris, through the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France, into Bruges in Belgium, and into Amsterdam for three days.

Then, we drove back down through Gent, with a stay in a little deserted beach town in Belgium called De Panne. We laughingly joked that the town should have been called En Panne (meaning, busted/out of order).

Everything about Amsterdam seemed so new and different for me. Honestly, I went there having no idea of what to expect. Which is sometimes the best way to travel.

Of course, Queen’s Day in Amsterdam was stark raving mad!! It may perhaps have been the biggest party I’ve ever seen.

I did set up my goods on the street. I think people were more interested in buying beers than cosmetics. But nevertheless, it was a great experience! And I’m sure with more experience, I’ll get better about my sales pitch 😉

I saw bikes, bikes, bikes! Everywhere bikes! And beautiful canals and boats. And great sunlight.

The vibe in Amsterdam is just so chill. During Queen’s Day, there were lots of people selling their old things. Like clothes!

I felt like I was in garage sale heaven. A girl ended up just giving me an orange Zara coat, and I bought a hardly used Miu Miu bag and a round knitted hat.

Oh the things that I saw!

But sometimes, it’s better to let photos speak for themselves 🙂
