The Art Of Contentment

I think that the time someone sets aside for their peace of mind says a lot about a person. Too often do I hear people complain day to day about how stressful their lives are, for all sorts of different reasons. And yet, I don’t see anyone making a change in able to lessen that stress. Maybe they think it’ll solve itself, maybe they think they’re hopeless. Or maybe it’s because stress has quit literally become a habit of mankind. You see, when you continually complain and talk about your stressful life, you just feed off that negative energy, you…

The Adventure Destinations

I am excited for so many things to come during this adventure, but of course the most exciting is going to be experiencing the beautiful locations and nature around us. We have an elaborate plan as to how exactly we’re going to travel these six states and they’re amazing natural wonders. We would like to keep things as spontaneous as we can, knowing that we are never on a timed schedule so we can slow down and really soak in every moment. Though we have a detailed plan, we are open to new ideas along the way. We currently reside…

The Adventure Announcement

It has been only three months since I have graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism. Since then, though I have not yet moved forward in that field, I have discovered a great deal about myself and a great deal of the world in adulthood and the time “making a living” consumes. I adore the job that I have, though I need more time for myself and my passions. Many people probably feel this same way but let it go, but I will not. I am a woman with a vision and a deep wanderlust, no worldly struggle or discouragement…

Your Local National Forest

I currently reside in Spokane Washington and I never considered National Forests to be anywhere around me, until I started really paying attention. My most recent exploration was in the Couer D’Alene National Forest in Idaho, about 40 minutes away from me. My boyfriend and I spent hours trying to find the right place to camp, but after night fall we found ourselves at Devil’s Elbow Campground. This campground was beautiful! Full of trees, big camp sites with lots of separation and privacy and great access to the river. In fact, so close that we put our tent right next…

Tools To Make Money For Travel

When I tell people of all the travelling that I plan to do, a lot of those people look at me like I’m a little crazy; like how will I afford it and that they could never do such a thing. But it’s really not as difficult as some may think. Saving money for travel may take some trial and error, will power and a definite change in priorities. But when it comes right down to it, it’s really quiet simple. First of all, let me just mention that if you really do your research and get ahold of some…

The Best Credit Card for Travel

I have done my research on airline credit cards, knowing that I wanted only one to build miles upon in my life. There are a ton of airline credit cards out there and it can be difficult to choose the best one for you.  Credit Karma is a good tool to use to compare card benefits side by side, which always makes it easier. But if you want my advice, the card I chose was the Discover It Miles Card. I chose this card because it has no annual fee (which many cards have a hefty one with not much extra…

Shelton Exploration

So many people think that they cannot travel to beautiful locations because they don’t have the time or the money for it. I used to be one of those people, but this past year I have started to do my research and saying yes to the most random adventures, finding myself in places I never knew excited and having my friends thinking I’m going to crazy places far away when really they’re all in the same state of which I live! Shelton, Washington. I used to live about two hours from this place and never realized the beauty of this…
