I’ve been obsessed with tiny houses since about a year ago, when I chanced upon a youtube video of a law student who built his own tiny house in order to avoid paying steep rentals. The whole idea then was just so new to me, I thought it […]
Are you planning to take your very first hiking trip? Are you wondering what to bring and how to prepare for it? I bet you must be so excited! I sure was when I was planning for mine a few years back. I am not a pro- hiker, […]
This is my current hiking gear as of now. I don’t have an extensive list because I always like to keep things that I use most of the time (and sell the others away). I’m still a relatively new hiker and I only go for hiking trips 2 […]

As part of our road trip, we stayed at Botlierskop Private Game Reserve for 1 night. We drove from Knysna for about an hour before arriving at about noon time. Just in time for our afternoon game drive! When in South Africa, a Safari game drive is one of the best experiences you have to go for.
On my last night in Los Angeles we decided to head to Santa Monica Pier. It was crowded as per everywhere else in LA, but wow, it’s such a beauty. I love the old school neon lights on everything, plus the numerous souvenir stands along the wooden boardwalk. Fun fact: Santa Monica Pier is where the famous Route 66 ends. Anything related to a John Mayer (cover) song is always cool.
Of all the places we stopped by throughout the road trip, I was most excited about Yosemite. So after a nights’ stay at Mammoth Lakes, we drove about an hour and arrived at Yosemite Valley, where our accommodation was at.
We left Camp Nelson for a short stopover at Mammoth Lakes, before heading to Yosemite. It was rainy when we got there and even through our stay, the weather was overcast.
I first read about the Giant Sequoia trees a few years ago in a National Geographic magazine. I remember it was a cover of a guy hanging from an enormous tree and when I saw it I was just so amazed and never thought such huge trees even exist.
The trip to Kernville was originally intended as just a pass-through, to get to the giant Sequoias / Sequoia National Forest. So falling in love with it was completely unexpected.Located in the South of the Sierra Nevada, all I can describe about the place is that it’s a classic American small town.
