November 13th-19th, 2018 After spending a few days exploring Washington State, I continued north to Fairbanks, Alaska. I’m a native Californian and, prior to this trip, could count on one hand the number of times I’d seen it snowing. Visiting Alaska was a chance to break out of my temperature comfort zone, learn how to […]
For the last five years, I’ve lived and worked from a spectacularly beautiful spot in the Santa Cruz Mountains with a sweeping view of the Lexington Reservoir. I’ve been immersed in nature and regularly watched the deer, turkeys, bald eagles, foxes, coyotes, bobcats, beavers, snakes, and all sorts of other critters from my windows. I could walk out the door and be steps away from fishing, hiking, and mountain biking. Stumbling on that little lakeside cottage was one of the luckiest moments of my life, but it’s time to say goodbye.
During early November 2018, I flew over massive amounts of smoke from the Camp Fire en route to Washington. I had the opportunity to eat my way through Seattle and Pike Place Market, then drove north to Anacortes where I stayed in one of my favorite Airbnbs of all times. From there, I jumped on a ferry to San Juan Island to visit my grandparents.
If you like watching people hiking, you’re going to love this one! Our Iceland trip continues at the Volcano Huts. We climb mountains and built a solid bonfire. We drank coffee and ate some amazing food. I did a lot of filming out there, so I am going to do a 3rd Iceland video eventually. […]
My European adventure continues this week in the land of ice! I stocked up on party supplies in the airport. Meet my roommate. We go on an epic adventure to see the edge of the North American tectonic plate, geysers, waterfalls, cows, a secret lagoon (it wasn’t very secret afterall), and craters. On day 2, […]
I missed two weeks of posting vlogs, but I am back! I didn’t want to spend any of my travel time editing. Sorry. For this week, Justin and I hit London for some sightseeing adventures and WordCamp London. We explored on the tube, had a few nice dinners, took a ride on the London Eye, […]
This week, I was totally focused on packing and prepping for my London/Iceland trip so the vlog isn’t quite as action-packed as normal. I found a song that I really like about the springtime, so I did a spring-themed day and went fishing and droning. I wanted to get warmed up with the drone since […]
Boise was on my travel bucket list for the last year and I FINALLY made it out there. It was a super spontaneous, last-minute trip. I bought a one-way ticket ~12 hours before take off and I am so glad I did! The Treefort Music Fest was awesome! I saw George Clinton and I saw […]
My Miami adventure continues with the work portion of the trip. WordCamp Miami 2018 was a blast. Over 1000 people attended the event. The weather was phenomenal. The team of volunteers that organized the camp did an amazing job. Thanks, guys. Once I finally peeled myself away from the beach, I went on a few […]
My original thinking was that I would come out to WordCamp Miami 2018 a bit early and have a relaxing beach to set up and do some work. I had no idea my trip was smack in the middle of spring break. This trip brought me back to 90s MTV spring break specials. One of […]
