Summer’s end. An ode to tan lines and salty skin, to dirty feet and sun bleached hair. To sunset beams dancing off the wave tips and fingers sticky from fruit juice. Long nights spent outside underneath the setting sun, and soft music floating on the breeze. Your fingers in my hair and laughter on our lips...
Farewell summer. You’ve been lovely (and so hot), and to be honest you’re still going strong here in California, and I have a feeling you’ll stick around for a while yet.✨

Fun last day in Colorado Springs. We visited the Cave of the Winds which was a gorgeous cavern and the Ghost Town Museum which was really neat. Also found a gorgeous view of Garden of the Gods on accident.
Explored a super cool Ghost Town Museum today where they recreated a typical town with antiques from the era. It was so cool to see and explore. Do you enjoy museums? What has been your favorite?

The common room of the Bernardino Jalandoni House Museum is reminiscent of typical Filipino ancestral houses in thr province. It invites commonality, cordiality and unity in the family to meet in a common place.
Family is the primary value of the Filipino people. Today, we celebrate the National Family Week. Keep your family ties closely-knitted. We only have one family.

New places don’t have to be too far from my house, which is something I realized not too long ago; I sometimes spend too much time brainstorming new locations and outdoor activities in Utah. But when I looked around the internet to see what else is around Salt Lake just a few days ago, I came across this particular lake and thought it would be awesome to see it in person. And when @_emerson_fratzke_ told me she hasn’t been to this lake either, we decided we should really head out there, and see it for ourselves. As soon as we got to the lake, boy was I blown away by the surreal view, especially with the flawless reflection of the mountains on the calm waters! Whether they’re close to home or far away, it’s new places which give me more inspiration these days.

One of the best weekends in a while, hands down. With a stressful week done, the weekend called for a lot of relaxing and a fun day date with the hubs! •
Going for a walk outside, reading, coloring, working out, good eats, dates with the hubs, and enjoying the little things are all ways I slow down and things that fill my soul. What do you do that fills you with happiness and makes your soul smile?
Picture: Gondolda ride in Venice, 2014.
We found this rushed and overrated especially at the steep cost of £80. I guess we chose a busy route where they were in a rush to finish the ride to get the next set of tourists. If this is your first time though, there is no harm in checking this off of your bucket list. Tip: Try to find more people (the ride cost stays the same and cane be shared) and also make sure you are negotiating the route with the gondolier to keep it quieter and less distracting.
Reminiscing my trip to Venice, Italy, which was one of my first international trips from the USA.
When I moved to the United States about 5 years ago, I had no idea my dream of travelling extensively will become a reality. Prior to moving here, we were hardly able to make ends meet and even short road trips seemed like a luxury. Compared to serious travel bloggers, it is not extensive by any means, however I do love my day job as well and I am happy with what I can squeeze in, on the travel front. Eventually I would love to make this a full time hobby or at least have the ability to take sabbaticals from my full time jobs. There is nothing like the joy of exploring an unknown land and mingling with locals.
I have never encouraged anyone who has spoken to me for advice, to drop whatever they are doing to pursue their passions because things are definitely not as easy as they seem, with responsibilities and also the practicality of being able to save for retirement when medical expenses become huge amongst other things. On the contrary, if you really work hard in any space, success is inevitable. In whatever you decide, the thing to keep in mind is to be wise and understand what works for your life and lifestyle.
It is great to have so many avenues these days, and if this is your calling then do not let anything stop you. However, do not let anyone convince you that what you do for a living is in any way lesser.

I’ve walked past this gorgeous black building on my way to the tube so may times over the last few years. It was only a few weeks ago that I discovered it was @blakeshotel. I was kindly invited to stay there for an evening to experience their Honey & Lavender package. It was such a treat! .
The package included an overnight stay for two with breakfast, an exclusive in-room massage by @secretspauk, and a delicious 3 course lavender and honey themed meal with cocktail pairing. More photos on stories soon I’ll also be writing a blog post about the whole experience. [gifted stay]
