travel

I have traveled up and down the East cost but I have never traveled to the west cost until recently! My birthday was coming up and I was taking a vacation away from work so decided to purchase a flight to California to visit a friend where I made a toast to new friendships and memories, achieving goals, and living life.

Five Places I Want To Visit

travel

1.  Amsterdam, The Netherlands: I watch HGTV on a regular, especially International House Hunters! On television Amsterdam appear to be a quaint area with a deep history. When I do get the chance to visit Amsterdam, I would love to stay on the canal and near the heart of town. I want to explore the town by foot or bicycle and be close to local shops and eateries. A few places on my radar to visit is the House of Anne Frank, The Purse and Bag Museum, and one of the several Art & History Museums.

2. Tuscany, Italy: After watching “Under The Tuscany Sun” I have

My Calm Place

travel

No matter where I am in the world if there is a beach I will be there. The beach is my favorite place to visit. It’s my calm place and where I go when I need to be a lone. The sound of the waves soothes me and the breeze from the waves makes me feel rejuvenated.

There is something about looking out into the ocean and listening to the waves that makes me feel everything will be okay. I can spend hours on the beach without realizing the amount of time passing by because I become at ease. On January 13th I was stressed and missing home, so I drove to North Myrtle Beach, SC and spent three hours on the beach without realizing it. Living close by the beach is something I miss so I take advantage of every opportunity I receive.

4 Things You Must Do When Traveling

travel

Look for souvenirs outside the gift shop

          When traveling try to avoid gift shops when purchasing souvenirs. There will be unique and original finding when visiting street vendors and random stores you come across while traveling.  Looking for original art became a thing for me when I took my first international trip to Europe. While visiting Europe

Thursday Thoughts: Time

live life, Love, make things happen, management life, Qualashan, random, retail, self help, self love, self motivation, Thursday, Thursday Thoughts, travel, traveling, True Life, Vacation
While at work today one of my employees said something that placed me into thought. We were talking about life and how much free time we actually have. She mentioned to another manager and me that as full time workers in retail our schedules are all over the place and we don’t have a great deal time to enjoy things
or have a set schedule. Her words made me think about the things I love to do and how much time I actually have to do them. She is right, I don’t have much time as I would love to have in order to travel, write, volunteer, mentor and spend time with family and friends, all things I love. I realized that my free time is built around my work schedule. 
Its 2014 and I am going to work hard in order to create self time for myself and take pleasure in the things in life I love to do. I may be tired when I get off work but I am going to make sure to stop and take a view of the things around me. 

Hotel Biba in West Palm Beach, Florida

travel

While in search for somewhere to stay for just a night in West Palm Beach, Florida I came across Hotel Biba. It was the only hotel out of many that I called who had an opening for the night.
The hotel is very historical  and quaint. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

I just want to share the photos I took during my stay.

Ready To See The World

Live Love Life, travel

 

After going on my two week adventure to France and Spain I have the urge to head back to France and live for six months or even a year. I have always had the urge to travel and now that I have gone international I am ready to do it again. There are so many things in the world to see and I want to see them all. Now that I am on the edge of finishing college the road is wide open for me with no limitations. I will admit that sometimes I am afraid of change but change is good in different aspects of life. With that being said, I am ready to see the different changes of life head my way. Live Love Life.
