Exploring Greece: A Wild Camping Adventure

This a guest post written by Joey Holmes about her time wild camping in Greece.

Greece has, for a long time, been the perfect destination for travellers on a budget looking for guaranteed sunshine throughout the summer months. The varied and stunning ancient history, excellent food, pristine beaches and long sunny days holds huge appeal for European holidaymakers, many of whom go for incomprehensibly cheap (and often tacky) package holiday deals. But we wanted to see Greece from a different angle, away from the chaos of sunlounger filled beaches and booze cruise party people. We wanted to see Greece the way it’s depicted in the photos; deserted, tranquil, untouched and beautiful. Continue reading “Exploring Greece: A Wild Camping Adventure”

We were just hanging out in Astoria, Oregon about 1 hr and a half from our home when instead of driving home that night, we decided to go further and explore Long Beach, WA.

We enjoyed the sunset at the beach, our B&B, the Saturday Market at the Port of Ilwaco, wind and kites at the beach, and delicious fudge.  Continue reading “Long Beach, Washington – Bed & Breakfast, Kites and A Marina”

Last Christmas Eve, Josh and I decided to go on a 2-hour road trip to Cannon Beach, a small city in Oregon. We had never been and all I knew about the place was that it is home to the famous Haystack Rock.

The 4-hour roundtrip was definitely worth it. Continue reading “The Most Photogenic Beach I Have Been To: Cannon Beach, Oregon”

Acapulco Living – Beach, Ice Cream and Nightlife

Last week I was in Acapulco, Mexico for 5 days during the Mexico Independence holiday and enjoyed every minute of it. I spent it mostly chilling and soaking in the sun (and the shadow) at the beach and poolside, and eating coconut ice cream. I also went out at night only once, which is less than usual since nightlife in Acapulco is a big deal. Continue reading “Acapulco Living – Beach, Ice Cream and Nightlife”

1. I went grocery shopping and my total was $111 but then, the cashier typed something on her keyboard and randomly gave me $10 off. I don’t know why and she didn’t even tell me. She simply did it and it was awesome.

2. I got to have  a wonderful breakfast with my hubby in Downtown Portland on Friday because I was going to be taking the train to the airport a couple of blocks from where he works. Continue reading “This Week’s Small Pleasures”
