AirBnb Eco-Cottage – Portland, OR

Portland is such a unique city. It has the perfect combination of outdoors, great food and shops. It’s close to the coast, to the forests, to the Columbia River Gorge and so many other gorgeous Oregon natural gems. It can be hard to find the right combination of nature and the city life, so you don’t have to drive thirty minutes to get to downtown during your stay in the Portland area. Which is why I recommend this gorgeous eco-cottage found near the Pearl District of Portland. This eco-cottage is very different in such a beautiful way. If you like…

Working And Traveling Is Easier Than You Think

Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of programs all over the media that allow you to travel in groups and work while traveling. These programs are amazing and make the process very simple; they put you with a group, allow you to share rooms so that the prices are cheaper and overall it seems like an incredible experience. There are also other ways that you can work and travel, like work on a cruise line, be a flight attendant, teach English abroad and a few others. But I think the perspective that you must join a program in able to…

Top Ten 101 Destination Stops

If you’re planning a 101 coastal road trip, I deeply recommend doing it right. That means starting from the 101 no one thinks about, right off the coastal road.

Here are the must stop visits while traveling this amazing highway, from north Washington to California.

Cape Kiwanda – Pacific City, Oregon

Cape Kiwanda is my favorite cape on the Oregon coast, and that says a lot because Oregon is full of beautiful coastal lines. The best thing about the Oregon coast is it’s Oregon Beach Bill, which allows you to wander anywhere your heart desires on the beaches, as the beaches belong to the people and are protected from being owned or industrialized. So many signs can say to not go beyond this point or something, but it’s more of a warning. Cape Kiwanda is located in Pacific City, a small, simple and beautiful town that I love so much! The…

The Importance Of Taking A Day Off For Yourself

For the past few months I have been going to war with myself as to whether or not I could afford to take a day off during the week, not to do anything particular, but just to have a day to myself. The weekends always tend to fill up with checklists and when your in a relationship, those days are spent tackling tasks together and sometimes it is nice to have a day all to yourself. Well, I finally took that day off and it was one of the best things I’ve done for myself in a long time. I…

May All You’re Crystals Be Precious

I still remember the first crystal I ever owned, it was a small tiger’s eye that my best friend gave to me. Tiger’s eye are most recognized for their energy to bring good luck, I guess I needed luck in my life at that point in time. After that, crystals started to make their way into my life, little by little, and each had a very special place in my life, I set them in their own places throughout my home and I knew exactly what each one brought to my spirit. My mother was always into crystal healing when…
