Nakalele Blowhole is another cool attraction that you can do on Maui. It’s located on the northwestern part of the island. This is home to the more underdeveloped rural areas so the road conditions can be pretty bad getting there. However, you will definitely be able to see some really stunning views along the way (see pics below)!

Once you reached the site, you will have to do a short hike to the bottom. The blowhole is easy to spot because it is always active and forms geyser-like eruptions every few minutes. Though a pretty interesting sight to see,  it’s important to note that it can also be extremely dangerous. I would not recommend getting anywhere near it or walking on the wet rocks. There have been a few serious accidents here which ultimately ended in deaths. It’s a scary thought to process but as long as you are careful, this area is a beautiful place to explore! ~b

Hi guys! Finally, putting up some pics from my Oregon, Washington, & Colorado mini vacay a while back. I haven’t made a trip to the West Coast in years. Even so, it didn’t take long for me to be in complete awe of the majestic beauty of the natural landscape. Being surrounded by mountains and wilderness, every corner turned into a photo opportunity!

I traveled with my boyfriend and brother, who are both avid photographers. We woke up early everyday to catch the sunrise. Jonsrud View Point was my favorite scenic spot at dawn . It is located in Sandy, Oregon – which is a 50 min. drive from Portland where we were staying. The outlook was conveniently situated on the side of the road. It was also right in front of a neighborhood, making it basically someone’s front yard. Soooo can you just imagine waking up to that incredible view every morning?! Ahhh I’m jealous!

Later in the same day, we drove to Washington to visit Johnston Ridge Observatory. It’s a great place to enjoy an expansive view of Mount Saint Helens. You can also come here to learn more about the aftermath of the 1980 volcanic eruption. It is the most deadliest and economically destructive volcanic event in American history. To this date, the area is still slowly recovering. If you have the time, I would check this place out.

All in all, I hope you guys enjoy the travel pics and I can’t wait to share more of my trip with you guys. Talk to ya soon! ~b

Happy November y’all! In this  blog post i’m excited to share with you guys my new bike!  I won a Schwinn bike for my boyfriend so he purchased this cute bike for me so we could go cycling together. We have this new thing where we are riding to all the art murals in our city. So far, it’s been a fun and cool way to explore! I also ended up naming my bike Minty…ha – how original,  I know 🙂 . It actually took us a while to find a bike because I am so petite. I was set on getting a cruiser style bike with gears but this was not a common combination. We looked online and in stores everywhere but the bikes we looked at were often times too big or didn’t have gears. We eventually got lucky on a trip to Walmart and found my Huffy Parkside City Bike! Not only is it cute and a great bike but it’s also super affordable. It retails for $119 before tax. I highly recommend this bike for someone around 5 feet tall (although it comes in a bigger size if you are taller).  I’ve had the bike for a little over a month now and I love it! I am planning to make the bike a little more old school by adding vintage elements to it. Think wicker basket, brown leather handles, and pin striped wheels. It’s on my list of projects to do! 🙂 All in all, I seriously recommend this bike for anyone looking for a stylish bike with functionality – it’s the perfect mix of mountain + road + cruiser all in one!
