Yosemite National Park


Yosemite (59 of 72)

I drove to Yosemite in December to explore this gorgeous national park. It was probably the coldest weekend of the month, cause I was literally freezing. I would go explore for an hour and then go back to the car to warm up for a while. It was amazing though. I saw a bobcat, deer, many birds and many other amazing things that make this country so beautiful. Of course I explored the whole park with my camera close by me the whole time. I loved just wandering around and snapping pictures of what I thought was beautiful. It’s so important to do the things you love and to make time for them. Photography and traveling are my biggest passions and I love that with the life I’m living I can take the time to continue doing what I love. Continue reading

Please don’t make me put on chains!


Sequoia (6 of 17)

How many of you are girls and have (just like me) no clue how to put chains on the wheels of your car when it’s snowing heavily? It had been hot the whole month of December in California, so the last thing I thought I’d have to do is to drive in the snow. Of course, two days before my road trip a snow storm passed through Sequoia and there I was, stressing out about having to put those chains on my rental car. I never had to actually put them on, thank God, but it gave me a good amount of stress.  Continue reading

Hanging bridge


Pico Bonito (16 of 23)

During my stay in La Ceiba I didn’t have time enough to visit the actual Pico Bonito National Park. I was dying to go to the waterfall but it was a long hike and after we went rafting there was just not enough time to do the hike as it was getting dark already and that means that it would be pretty unsafe for a blonde girl to wander around in a huge park like that.

Río Cangrejal


Pico Bonito (9 of 23)

Not only did I visit Cayos Cochinos, Roatan and Omoa while in Honduras; I also visited the Pico Bonito area in La Ceiba. A very old little bus took us up to the mountains where the Pico Bonito national park is located. There are various ways to get to know this area, and one of them is to do so by white water rafting. This was a lot of fun and I’ll talk more about this experience in another post, but for now I just want to share some of the pictures I took of the amazing views around Río Cangrejal!  Continue reading

Olympic National Park

After we arrived in Seattle last Tuesday, we went straight to Worldmark Discovery Bay, where we stayed for a couple of days. The day after we arrived, we went to the Olympic National Park for an amazing hike in the mountains. Paul took Slaiden with him in the backpack, so he did a hell of a workout! The views were gorgeous. I saw mountains, Hurricane Ridge, snow, deer and thousands of the tallest trees.  Continue reading

Put the baby in the backpack

Hiking in the rain forest with a baby is not a mission impossible. Slaiden loved hanging out on daddy’s back. When he started to get fussy, we just picked things, like pine cones, up from the floor and gave it to him to distract him. When he was sick of those, we just let him out of the backpack and he started running around and absolutely loved everything about being surrounded by trees that seemed to come straight from the fairytales.  Continue reading
