Let's be honest, being U.S. territory in the Caribbean, I didn't put Puerto Rico too high on my list of places to visit. From my regional experience, I pictured a beautiful chaos: a delightful, delicate lay of land in constant battle with ravaging tropical storms. I mean, sometimes island maintenance is just too overwhelming with half … Continue reading This Is What You Came For
Laugh There are some things in life that you just can't help giggle about. Here I am, 27 years old with paper towels stuffed in my boots underneath my sock-less feet, dried blood crusted in my nostrils, a rumbling hungry tummy, and a bright red scuffed up chin. Yup, I know, haha, a b s o … Continue reading Live, Love, & Laugh … Literally!
Here is recap on how (normally) hectic my life has been: Sunday, July 10th, I officially packed up my one bedroom apartment and moved it all into storage. At 5 am on Thursday, July 14th, I flew out of Denver and landed in Savannah. Flying east always takes a whole day; from flight duration to time zone … Continue reading Santa Barbara Bruises
Five minute video snippets of the scuba trip to Cozumel in March. Coasting Cozumel from daaasily on Vimeo. Sort of want to do a different (and improved) video, but it took me a month to get around to it, and now two months to even post it. So, this will do for now.
First things first, the traffic: it's ridiculous. Didn't travel more than 8.1 miles at a time and each drive took at minimum 25 minutes. LA doesn't appeal to me as significantly as other California cities however, since the trip was essentially 'free', who am I to decline that travel opportunity? And boy, did those 24 hours get … Continue reading 24 Hours in LA
Beauty in Bali from daaasily on Vimeo. After a little bit over a month later, I finally put together a little clip of some video footage taken in Bali. Don't forget to click 'HD' for crisp quality of the scenery. Enjoy!
It hasn't even been 48 hours since I've been back home from Bali.... And I literally could have died this morning. Slight exaggeration as there could have been a worse outcome, but still, a very true statement. On my drive to work today, I got into a bad car accident. The kind of bad that … Continue reading Mindfulness in Bali
This year, on my 26th birthday, while slightly intoxicated and ranting to a friend, I named off some goals I wanted to accomplish before my next birthday. One of them was to travel south of the equator for the first time. Then I told him that I was cheating because I already had tickets booked … Continue reading South of the Equator
One thing on my Life List was to travel with a stranger. Well, the opportunity (sort of) presented itself and I took it. In my head, I pictured backpacking somewhere, meeting someone in a hostel, and then deciding to go to the next place together. This wasn't that specific scenario, but nonetheless, I went to … Continue reading Every Friend Was Once a Stranger
