Melbourne Part 2: Art Vo!

Melbourne Part 2: Art Vo!

Over the next hour or so, I became well aquatinted with Cody, Alex and Cheryl. They were all super friendly, kind, and made the entire experience a lot of fun! Not only will they take your picture, but they will also give you ideas about how to pose in the most realistic location so that you appear as if you are part of the art. They also have an interactive app that I recommend you download called Art Vo. Through the app, there are certain paintings that move, allowing you to create a movie within the painting. Super cool…

Off Day Vibes Part 2, Clare Valley

First stop was the Spring Gully Lookout. Less than a 10 minute drive away, I was able to get a pretty nice view of some of the surrounding land and wineries in the area. I do appreciate the variation in the land, vegetation and views that Australia has to offer. Being on this hill by myself was so serene, I felt like I had all this land to myself.

Off Day Vibes Part 1, Bumbunga Lake

The second thing I noticed was the texture of the ground as I walked closer to the lake. It didn’t feel like sand, and the hard crunch under my feet reminded me of winters spent trekking through hardened, packed snow.  Except, it obviously wasn’t snow – it was salt. In some of the photos I took you can see a faint pink color but…

Adelaide, Australia: I saw Kangaroos!

Adelaide, Australia: I saw Kangaroos!

Driving around lost allowed us to see beautiful mountain views of the ocean, take some fun pictures and we even encountered a blue-tongued lizard! When we finally reached our destination, thanks to a friendly older Australian couple, I was blown away. First, there were so many kangaroos! Male, female, joeys, just hopping around freely in their environment, it was so cool to see!

South Korea

South Korea

While there I had to make a lot of adjustments. The time change was definitely the hardest, 14 hour difference! It took my body 2 weeks to properly adjust to the time change, way longer than I expected! Language barriers are nothing new to me, as I had plenty of experience with this in Russia, however, in Russia the letters were similar to the English alphabet. In Korea, its completely different, it was symbols, and complicated symbols at that! My apartment also didn't have…

Sistacation, Hello Mexico

Sistacation, Hello Mexico

My sister wanted to do XPLOR because there was a zip-line. Me and heights are not the greatest of friends, but since I was under the impression it was one zip-line, I told myself to suck it up and do it for my sister. Well, I clearly didn’t read the fine print because it wasn’t one zip-line but seven! Once you did one zip-line, you had to compete the other six it to get back on land. My sister was aware of this and didn’t feel the need to inform me. I prayed so much and thanked God profusely when …

Mondeville, a walk back in history!

Mondeville, a walk back in history!

I love to explore new cities and when they have an interesting history behind them, it makes you appreciate what you're witnessing/ experiencing even more. While there I had the opportunity to explore a small part of Caen, the capital of France 's lower normandy region, which is rich in French, Canadian and American history...
