go on a road trip

"Not all those who wander are lost."

This is probably the one quote that best depicts my view of traveling, adventuring, and mindlessly wandering. Nothing's better than embarking on an exciting journey all by yourself, eh? That reminds me... I forgot to do a Lord of the Rings marathon over break. Shoot! Legolas, I'll be back for you during spring break.

Moving forward, I realized that I should upload more casual posts with snapshots of everyday life on my blog. I mean, this technically is a personal blog. Thus, I diligently took photos on my trip up the Pacific Coast Highway to Big Sur. Splendid sights. Lots of snoozing. Absolutely perfect.

Roadtrips mean polaroids. A great, timeless investment.

I picked up knitting again, which turned out to be a nice pastime in the car. I am attempting to finish a scarf before classes start. I got carsick halfway through though, so a three hour nap followed.

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park summarized by one word: magical. The natural creations of our world are pretty breathtaking. Go out and explore whenever you can find the chance.

Stopped in San Simeon to spend the night, then watched elephant seals bathe in the morning sunlight (forgot to take pictures, apologies).

Kristina and her chunky color block scarf.

I have some very important observations to address. Carmel-by-the-Sea has the most beautiful sand and the most scrumptious Mediterranean food.

Long car rides and pink horizons.

Foam from waves is a really soothing and relaxing sight.

I was bummed about the lighting at first, but this photo turned out so well! Happy Chaereen.

Time to sign-off for today; I'm trying to lessen the rambling. But in all seriousness, go on a road trip. It's perfect for taking your mind off of things, for reflection, and for inspiration. See you soon,
