This week has been extremely eye opening, educational, heartbreaking, and so many more things. I’m sure you can all agree. 😞
I feel in some ways like a different person than I was last Friday, and I hope this personal growth continues as I make efforts to not be “not a racist” but to be an anti-racist. 👊🏻👊🏼👊🏾👊🏿
Normal blog content will resume tomorrow, and next week things on my IG Stories will be returning to regular content as well (memes, work outfits, etc). With that said- an important disclaimer that posting normal online content again does NOT mean that I no longer care about these important issues. I’m looking forward to continuing to educate myself through books, videos/documentaries, podcasts... and most importantly continuing to have TOUGH and DEEP conversations with friends and family (Something I’ve generally been nervous to do! This week has put me very out of my comfort zone in the best way). If you posted a black square on Instagram this week, are you also committed to doing the work off of Instagram? Something to think about! 🤔
Anyways- ending this week with this #sbittravelphotofriday post from Charleston, SC! Spent a short couple hours there coming back from the beach a couple weekends ago while visiting my friend @carolinecoleburn. On that afternoon there were not a lot of people practicing social distancing in Charleston which made us very uneasy 😬 think crowds and almost zero mask wearing... so we didn’t stay long! But glad I got to get a few colorful snaps 📸🌈 #Charleston#Charlestonsc#sbittravels#shotoniphone
Recorriendo la Ruta del Califato, llegando a la campiña de Jaén podemos admirar un paisaje infinito de olivares. Destaca un cerro donde está enclavado Alcaudete, y sobresale su torre del Castillo de 25 metros. Perteneció al reino nazarí y pasó a manos castellanas tras la conquista de Fernando III. La fortaleza se reforzó posteriormente cuando se cedió a la Orden de Calatrava siendo recuperada otra vez por los nazaríes hasta 1312 cuando volvió a manos castellanas de manos del Infante Don Pedro.
Walking the Caliphate Route, reaching the Jaén countryside we can admire an infinite landscape of olive groves. A hill stands out where Alcaudete is located, and its 25-meter Castle tower stands out. It belonged to the Nasrid kingdom and passed into Castilian hands after the conquest of Fernando III. The fortress was later reinforced when it was yielded to the Order of Calatrava, being recovered again by the Nasrids until 1312 when it returned to Castilian hands from the Infante Don Pedro
E por falar em realizar sonhos em viagens (veja foto anterior)....
Eu sempre tive vontade de andar de helicóptero (apesar de todo medo). Quando fomos a Las Vegas, pudemos realizar essa minha grande vontade em um passeio pelo Grand Canyon. Eu confesso que caíram algumas lágrimas lá em cima. Primeiro por poder ter essa oportunidade e segundo porque o lugar realmente é maravilhoso. É imenso, imponente e lindo!
Compramos o passeio em Las Vegas, diretamente com a empresa Maverick Helicopters. 🚁 E na foto uma parada no meio do deserto para abastecer.

Pa'rus Trail, in Utah's #ZionNationalPark , is considered an easy 3.5 mile hike. Averaging 2 hours, the short trek offers a glimpse into the natural history of the area.
The #pavedtrail is the only multi-use trail in the park, open to #wheelchairs ♿ #bikes 🚲 and #pets on leash. 🐕
The environment can be harsh and unforgiving. Your safety is your responsibility and that begins with proper planning and preparation prior to your visit.
While Pa'rus Trail is open, the park is allowing limited access according to CDC recommendations. Check the park's official website for updates before visiting.
Columbia Cliff Villas sits 200' above the Columbia River and looks out to the world famous "Hatchery" where windsurfers are often seen on the river. Enjoy a birds eye view of the action when you stay with us!
Driving has become chill and relaxing. No matter how much or little we plan, there's an air of excitement in the unsurety of what's on the road up ahead, but the beauty in each passing moment keeps us consistently plugged in to the now. The feeling is freeing and liberating!
A few days ago we passed through San Francisco on our way to Fort Bragg, leaving the mountain heat of Yosemite National Park for the coolness of the coast. We explored glass beach which is a beach littered in smoothened glass fragments created from years of dumping garbage into an area of coastline near the northern part of Fort Bragg in the early 1900s. In the evening we hunkered down and enjoyed a glass of wine while watching the most amazing sunset ever before waking up to amazing northern California, cliffside ocean views. We even spotted a whale surfacing and spouting from our bedroom window.
Check out some highlights from our drive through San Francisco to Fort Bragg. #TRAVELLOVE #TRAVELBLOGGER #RVLIFE #RVTTRAVEL #YOUNGRETIREDANDFREE #BLACKRVERS #LATINRVERS #TRAVELPHOTOGRAPHY #RETIREDVETERANS #MILITARYVETERANS #VETERANLIFE #USTRAVEL
This image was captured on a wonderful day spent at Mission San Miguel Arcangel, California’s fourth mission. Spent a good part of the day there while it alternated between hail/rain and sun. Weird day. Also, while we were there, restorers were there painting the inside from damage that occurred during the 2003 earthquake.

It seems like a picture of President Abraham Lincoln is appropriate today!!
The nation’s 16th President is most well-known for his leadership through the Civil War. This memorial was built between 1914-1922, and contains are large statue of the President. .
Have you see the Lincoln Memorial?
First time shooting clay pigeons!!! I had a blast! ☺ Only in the country do the neighbors not blink an eye when hearing a gunshot. LOL 😆 Seriously, I hear gunshots nearly everyday and forgot how no one even takes notice of them. I do love rural America
