Glamping in California, Redwoods & Sea

Glamping in California

This summer we’ve spent a lot of time here at home in California. The weather here is usually moderate year-round, so awhile back we took a few days to go glamping in one of our favorite places, in the coastal redwoods. We booked this geodesic dome on airbnb for a couple of nights and had a blast. Today I’m sharing a look into our trip as well as some tips that I’ve learned on our glamping trips that helped make this one a little better.

Summer in California Travel Wishlist

Hidden Beach in Mendocino County, California

Although we started out with a pretty hefty travel wishlist this year, it looks as though we will be staying more local this Summer. We had big plans to try to go do a roadtrip in Norway, but sometimes plans don’t always line up and we have to adjust our sails. Luckily we live in a place that is already full of it’s own diverse beauty, California! Though it’s fairly large, most places are driveable or a short flight away. Much like last years SF Bay Area bucketlist, today I’m sharing some of my favorite and kind-of local dream destinations from my California travel wishlist.

Destination Paris!

Travel Light - Pack for Winter in Paris. 20 items, 10 outfits, 1 carry-on.

We’re off to Paris soon, and while I’m part-excited, I’m also part-nervous. I have my packing list done, that’s always the easy part for me. I have to admit that it’s not a destination that I’ve been dying to get to. That said, I think this will be a pretty laid back trip. My husband and I don’t take a lot of time to ourselves when it comes to our family, so this trip will be a chance to finally do that. I look forward to long walks doing absolutely nothing, and taking a relaxing bath every night. I might even get to open a book, wow! It seems that I might be on the non-popular side of Paris opinions though, as several of our friends have already recommended a plethora of amazing things for us to check out. I’ve included them below.

Destination Oahu

Destination Oahu, Oahu without tourists

One of our next trips is to Oahu, part of the Hawaiian Islands. We’ve visited before during part of our honeymoon and didn’t do a lot of exploring except for going on a horseback ride. During a visit to an empty beach we came by some sea turtles who seemed un-bothered by us, but a giant tour bus pulled up and tourists flooded the beach. It really ruined the experience, and scared the turtles away. I’d love to see parts of Oahu that are not touristy and kind of natural.

Do you have any suggestions for us?
