Kauai – The Garden Island (Six must visit places in Kauai)

Wailua River The Wailua River is a wide river very popular for kayaking and paddle boarding. It takes about three hours round trip to paddle board and it is full of luscious rainforest and stunning views every where you turn. From it, you can paddle to Secret Falls, located in a small village about half way through your trip and one other waterfall. We rented our boards from an amazing shop very close to the main entrance for the river, Stand Up Paddle. O’opaka Falls O’opaka Falls is easily accessible to view, it is a massive waterfall that you can…

New Moon Ritual

The next new moon will be in our sky this 18th and the time couldn’t be any more perfect the current situation in my life. Though I am so happy to be back home with my loving family, working and earning more money for a future of adventures, I still long for the open road. Having so much time to travel had allowed me to explore myself so much and I had never been so happy. So I guess a life of 11 hour work days, six days a week has left me little time to continue exploring my spirit…

Sometimes Getting Lost Is The Right Direction

I’d be lying if I told you that the travelling lifestyle is all, as my stepmother called it, “hippie flowers and butterflies.” We have our worries just like anyone else, our worries are simply much different, consisting of where we will sleep tonight, the cheapest option for gas and finding the right directions. After driving about 30 minutes in the wrong direction, we had to turn around and retrack our path. For any of you who do not know, we do not have a phone plan, we rely entirely on maps, which normally is not an issue, but yesterday it…

Leaving My Camera Behind

The last few days have been spent right along US 101 S. We’ve made it as far as Newport, OR and the scenery has been absolutely incredible. We have taken our sweet time travelling along the Oregon coast, it’s difficult to keep your eyes on the road with all the beauty just to your right. So far, we have stopped at nearly every cape, cove and beach from Cannon Beach to Newport, starting from Haystack Rock, Tolovana Beach, Arcadia Beach, Hug Point, Cape Kiwanda, and Yaquina Head. One of the most beautiful pit stops have been Hug Point, where my…

Good Luck and Good Fortune Meditation

As we finally head off away from family and into our own atmosphere of life, to attract good luck is never a bad thing. We have made some critical decisions within the last couple days, such as leaving our truck behind and relying upon our own feet, bicycles, buses and Uber to spare us the money spent on gas to tow the weight as well as on ground, we believe this will allow us to think more creatively as to how to best get where we need to be. We also have made a difficult decision to travel just to…

Travel Hotspot Down Highway 101

So many times I have drove down Highway 101, just the drive home and sometimes further to Astoria, Seaside and Canon Beach. I drove it to school, I drove it basically whenever I needed to go anywhere at all. But it has taken me until now to recognize that, that very road is a famous scenic byway for travelers down the Washington, Oregon and California coast. A staple during our travels so far down highway 101 has been stopping at the Elixir Culture Co., a company my aunt owns and has grown into a beautiful, lively destination for travelers down…

New Moon Bay Leaf Ritual

The New Moon is the ideal time to let go of unwanted energy and bad habits in your life and begin again with new intentions, with the energy of the moon in your favor. There are many rituals you can partake in to help with these intentions, as I will be leaving soon on my travels, there may be some troubling times where it is important to stay positive and trust my intuition. This new moon falls just days before leaving and so I find a ritual of helping my wishes come true to be perfect for the occasion. Bay…
