Petting Alpacas in Temecula. (Video)

Part of the experience I enjoyed while visiting Temecula was signing up to feed and pet a few Alpacas. As it was my first time bonding with these types of animals, I wasn’t sure how I felt about them. However, after much bonding I grew to love them in the end. The Alpacas are cute especially with their bushy furs hanging right around their eyes. … Continue reading Petting Alpacas in Temecula. (Video)

Exploring Old Town Temecula. (Video)

You can’t come to Temecula without seeing Old Town. It is one of the main attraction aside from wine tasting and it is a must see in my opinion. Truthfully, I didn’t have high hopes for Temecula at first because it reminded me of a previous experience I had visiting near the area that turned out to be disappointing. However, this trip completely changed my … Continue reading Exploring Old Town Temecula. (Video)

The Quiet Side of Temecula. (Video)

A busy work week for me usually means retreating to a quieter weekend getaway. Temecula came to mind as a perfect spot in re-setting. It was a place that was easy to reach (within an hour) from home yet, far enough to feel like I am in another world. What’s great about Temecula is that it’s known as a wine country town. Therefore, finding a … Continue reading The Quiet Side of Temecula. (Video)

The Best of 2019

This year travel wise was focused on visiting small towns in U.S.A. that I’ve never been to. It was an eye opener to see how many beautiful towns there are that I’ve yet to see in my own country. I learned that having a car will take you far. Renting a car when I visited Maryland was the best thing my mom and I could’ve … Continue reading The Best of 2019

The Key to Hemet Desert’s Hideaway (video)

With the rising living costs in California and the immense amount of people flocking in to the state by the minute; I’ve definitely considered a quieter, smaller and more remote location. Luckily, my friend lives in Hemet, a city known for its retirement community with mobile home parks and retirement housing developments. The area is approximately 67 miles east from Orange County; about 40 minutes … Continue reading The Key to Hemet Desert’s Hideaway (video)

Camping for the night at Tabletop Mountain.

Truth be told, I’m not much of a camper. I camp in a car with a camper that has a proper stove, fridge and a bed. Although, if, you put me in front of a tent, that requires building from ground up then, it will probably take me a few hours to put together. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate it but, I struggle. In all said and done, at the end of the day I do it all for the adventure. Continue reading “Camping for the night at Tabletop Mountain.”

Exploring Slab City in California

Slab City definitely lived up to its quirkiness. Many of you have probably never even heard of this city unless you’ve been to or have seen at one point the popular site called Salvation Mountain. The site is in Slab city and it basically brings in (if not) most of the visitors to the area. This trip was my 2nd time visiting the Salvation Mountain and I’m glad I came back because I apparently missed a lot from my first visit.  Continue reading “Exploring Slab City in California”

Palm Desert, California: A Weekend Getaway.

A few days after I returned to L.A. I was invited to go to Palm Desert by my friend. I promised myself that I would slow things down with traveling this year. Although, being unemployed provides a lot of time in my hands that it was hard not to jump at the chance for a good weekend getaway.  Continue reading “Palm Desert, California: A Weekend Getaway.”
