To enjoy walking past a smile, views right in front of you and finding love in others, is something special. I believe in the good of people; that everyone has kindness to share x
Here is one of my favourite quotes:
“Accept yourself. Love yourself just as you are. Your finest work, your best movements, your joy, peace, and healing comes when you love yourself. You give a great gift to the world when you do that. You give others permission to do the same: to love themselves. Revel in self love. Roll in it. Bask in it, as you would the sunshine.”
– Melodie Beattie
“Dropping a Rose Petal Down the Grand Canyon”
After Graduation, my family and I flew from Michigan to Las Vegas and drove to the Grand Canyon; oh what a site to see! For me it was scary, just as much as it was breath taking. I was a little terrified, to say the least, that someone would slip and fall. Luckily, this didn’t happen 🙂 I had seen pictures of the Grand Canyon before, but seeing it in person was extraordinary; make sure to add it on your places to see!
A lot of stories are told about the tribes, a few of which are still based in and round the Canyon.
PS: we saw some Elk!
“Beautiful doesn’t begin to describe it. A flower is beautiful. But this is beautiful the way that a person is beautiful- terrifying with its jagged edges, yet seductive with its crevices that hide so many secrets.”
― Jeri Smith-Ready,
Although not planned, my trip to California was my first time travelling solo, and it was the best thing I ever did; something I needed to do at this point in my life. Travelling solo required me to put myself out there, so that I could meet new people, and to be brave, so that I could venture out on my own.
Here is a small list of the things I enjoyed in each place:
Bike riding from Fisherman’s Wharf, across the Golden Gate Bridge and to Golden Gate Park was a fun, up-hill adventure.
“It is by far the grandest of all the special temples of Nature I was ever permitted to enter.”
– John Muir
Despite the windy drive up and down into Yosemite, the view was amazing. It is worth driving to the valley floor to hike and swim in the rivers.
The most unique thing to San Diego was Old Town (not pictured). From markets to lolly shops, Old Town has a true Mexican feel.
One word: shopping. My two favourite places in L.A were Santa Monica and The Grove (neither pictured) – both great for shopping!
