James V. Fitzgerald Marine Reserve


Tour Alice (5 of 23)

A couple of days into our road trip of a couple of weeks ago, we stayed in Half Moon Bay for a 2 days. We stayed with Stacy’s godparents and it was the best. They took us to a couple of places and I could also use their bike to go explore and take pictures by myself whenever I felt like. It was nice to just be around people as kind as they were.

Postponing my adult life


JT-2

Explore. Dream. Discover.

I dedicate this message to all the people out there that are living a life that’s not fully satisfying them. I’m writing to the people who are sick of studying, who are stuck in a relationship that doesn’t make them happy anymore, who go to their job everyday without feeling like they really accomplish anything. This message is for everyone who needs a change. This change might be a tiny little change but it might be the biggest change of your life. Continue reading

Shameless selfie at the LA Observation Deck


DSC_1608

The Los Angeles City Hall is a building that not only has appeared in many movies. It also is the perfect spot to get an amazing view over the city. You can get up to the 27th floor of the building and walk around on the deck. The top level of this building is a conference room with windows all around and there happened to be a conference the day I went there. I was taking selfies for Instagram and suddenly I saw all the people from inside the room looking at me! Awkward!! Anyway, I got a good picture for Instagram with all the high buildings in the background, so I didn’t really mind people watching me taking my shameless selfie! 😉 Continue reading

Manhattan Beach walk


DSC_5943

Since I moved to California I really enjoy taking these long walks to the beach. I usually walk for about 1,5 hour and this time I walked all the way to Manhattan Beach and it was so pretty out there! As it was a really sunny day a lot of young people were tanning on the beach. Girls were watching the boys surfing, parents were walking their babies and others were just enjoying the prettiest views!

I love scrapbooks!


As I mentioned in the title allready: “I just love scrapbooks”. At the moment I’m making a little book where I want to write down ideas of places to see and things to do in the United States. It’s a nice way for me to be creative and to personalize a boring notebook.

On the picture you can see a scrapbook that I made after I went to Honduras for a year with AFS. I’m actually really proud of that book, because I worked a long time on it and it contains lots of memories. Inside there are pictures of my latin friends, of places I visited in Honduras & of the most amazing moments I had with my boyfriend. It sometimes even makes me cry when I look at the pictures and the notes of that year. It was the best year of my life and I’m so glad that my parents gave me the chance to experience how to live in another culture, and to be around people you don’t know who don’t speak your language. It also makes me realize how time flies. I remember every single detail of that year as it was yesterday, but we are 2013 allready, and I was there in 2009 (till july 2010). Oh gosh, I’m getting old ;-)!

On the front page of my scrapbook you can see a little map of the country, and also some REAL money of Honduras and then some pictures and a little text about traveling, which I really liked. This was the text:

Travel is more than the seeing of sights;
it is a change that goes on,
deep and permanent,
in the ideas of living.
(By Miriam Beard Page)

I hope you liked the text and the scrapbook 😉
