I have many different hobbies, and writing is one of my primary ones. My favorite type of writing is travel writing, but with a twist. My personal twist on my travel blog is with weather and meteorology, so I will be capturing any interesting weather moments I come along to as well as my travel destinations.

I am an avid traveller, always trying to visit somewhere new. I am in love with the outdoors and everything about it. I love nature from the different types of plants to the various species of wildlife. And at the same time, I’m not afraid to do super outdoorsy things¬†like going on hikes, swimming in rivers and lakes, or even braving through a haboob (it’s a giant dust storm).

An on another note, people usually say there are two kinds of people: mountain people and beach people. Well… I’m a little bit of both. The ocean feels like home, but the mountains give me a sense of awe-spiration. This’ll create a diverse atmosphere on my blog.

I’ve been on so many adventures from cross-country road trips to short day trips to month-long National Park conquests to weeklong cruises. Prepare to learn, read and see my¬†adventures from wherever you are! Hopefully I can inspire you to take trips and make your own memories that will last a lifetime!
