Even though it was a foggy day, it did not make Disneyland less magical! The first time we never forget...
what a lovely small city! I had the chance to visit Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay with my family in the end of last year, right before christmas. I have never seen a city so colorful, full of personality and HOT! Think about a sun shining at 110F/43C above your head. uf! These pictures are not in the best resolution because unfortunatelly I did not have my good camera with me due to a such short notice for this trip.
While in Palm Springs, below a 114ºF weather, we went to see Doug Aitken's mirage house which was insanely cool as you can see from these pictures I've taken. To get at this house in the middle of the desert, you actually need its coordinates, it does not have a proper address that you can just drop in your app and drive there. Here it is: 33°50'59.6"N. 116°33'57.5"W.
It is a real-size replica of an American house, the sculpture is entirely composed of reflective mirrored surfaces, outside and inside. We got lucky because when we arrived at the guard-house the sign was saying "closed" and we thought we couldn't go until the top of the hill to see the house. Fortunately, we got our way in and we were the only ones there! That's why these pictures turned out so good, no other visitors were there. We got some kinda of VIP access haha.
If you are passing by Hwy 111 or traveling to Palm Springs, I definitely recommend go see this mirage! 🏜🌵
Hey guys! This year has being magical with so many trips that I have been doing, I am so blessed by that! I want to share one of the coolest things I saw while I was in a road trip on my way to Palm Springs.
I had to make a stop at Cabazon Dinosaur because it's literally two huge dinosaurs in the middle of nowhere! I mean, middle of the desert haha. Dinny (150 foot long/46m) and Mr. Rex (65 foot long/20m) are visible from the freeway to travelers passing by on Southern California's Interestate 10.
Once I was there I realized that they are a playground for kids, you can go inside them and learn about dinosaurs if you are a fan. It's totally free!
Seriously, how good they look with these palm trees and desert mountains? Just a perfect shot!
I am so stoked about this post! I was in Palm Springs for the 4th of July weekend and I could not skip a visit to the uber famous pink door! Mostly known as @thatpinkdoor (or #thatpinkdoor) on Instagram. Everybody falls in love about this door and now I totally understand why!
I mean, it's a huge door! It looks like a chocolate bar AND IS PINK! 💕 In love already. The whole house is white popping up the pink door even more. And what I can say about these huge succulents next to it and the gorgeous handle? UGH. Definitely house goals.
There is nothing else to say, I get it, is only a door but yeah... It is beautiful! Located at 1100 E Sierra Way, Palm Springs. Go there, stare for a while, admire, take some pictures and of course, remember that it's a private house, be kind!
I guess this was by far my favorite road trip! Maybe because it was the first one in California that was only my husband and I inside the car. Not that I don’t love to do road trips with friends but sometimes it feels good just you and your significant other, you know? Besides that I love to drive!!
It took me 9 hours to drive from San Francisco to our destination, Big Bear Lake. On our way down California, we stopped in incredible locations to rest and take pictures. One of the locations was this desert somewhere Interstate-5 before entering in Bakersfield.
The weather was freezing and very windy, but the sun helped warming us up a little bit. It was almost sunset, the sun was lowering down and giving us an amazing golden hour to take these pictures. As you can see, totally worth it! Another tiny big moment in life...
Do you guys like road trips? Which was your favorite one? We are thinking about doing another one soon, any tips are welcome! And of course I will come back to show more photos of our adventure snowboarding for the first time in Big Bear, see you all in the next post! 🚗🌄
Alright, I already shared hundreds of pictures in this place through my social medias and also published here once on the blog some photos of this amazing park on the day that I found my favorite ice cream in the city.
This was a beautiful day in the Bay and every time I know I'll have sunny weekends, Dolores Park is definitely the place I will be! The park is located on Mission District and is always crowded with people playing sports, eating, reading, tanning (some naked people out there, beware!), walking their dogs, doing yoga or even getting high (welcome to California!) with a candy that I decided to call espresso-bomb (explained here).
Dolores is a great place to meet with your friends and disconnect from a hard week of work. It has a perfect skyline of Financial District to take a beautiful selfie and the famous Bi-Rite Market is right across the street (best fruits ever!). Also, sometimes the park offers movies sessions at night. I remember my first movie there was Clueless and it was so much fun! Don't forget your blankets - nights get pretty chill in the hill - your wine and your snacks! Tip: If it's possible, use the bathroom before the session begins. In the end of the movie the provided public chemicals restrooms always get busy and pretty yucky. 🤗🌳
Yeey, I finally had the opportunity to travel down to Los Angeles but I only had 48 hours in the city of angels. It was a quick trip but I did exactly what I had planned for those two days. I made a really good itinerary that I could visit the most important places of the town. I went to Abbot Kinney, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Griffith Observatory, Melrose Ave, Venice Beach, Santa Monica and a few more only in 2 days! So if you are wondering what to do in LA if you only have few hours, this video might help you!
Since I am a photo-crazy-person I took lots of pictures and decided to make a video instead of doing a huge post on the blog. I think it shows more easily everything that I've done in the city.
If you are wondering where are the locations of some of my photos, I put a list in the end of the video, but feel free to ask, leave a comment :)
Los Angeles was different than I was imagining to be, but since I am a huge fan of The O.C (tv show) I wanna try next time to go to Malibu, the mountains of Beverly Hills and Redondo Beach, these are the locations where the serie was filmed most of the times haha.
Hey guys! I'm back to show another lovely hotspot in San Francisco that most people don't even know it exists, the Cupid's Span. It's located inside the public Rincon Park, really close to Pier 14 on Embarcadero neighborhood.
It's a 60 foot (18m) sculpture that was made by a married couple from Netherlands which really compliments the romantic City of the Bay. You can have amazing views of the Cupid's bow and arrow with Bay Bridge or Ferry Building, just look for the best angle! And of course, don't forget to take a selfie with your beloved one. 🏹
I've been posting a lot about Tahoe, that is true, but all good things must come to an end and this will be my last post about it. I will start sharing another amazing moments that I've been having.
The last moments I had in Tahoe was full of perfect landscapes. Squaw Valley and Lake Forest Beach were the right way to end this road trip. Full of peaceful sounds: birds tweeting, branches falling from the pines, ocean waves and wind in your hair. I love to be close to nature, to the people I care about and away from the city's crowd to find my inner peace once in a while.
