October is one of my favorite months, the crisp air and the trees changing colors it’s beautiful and my favorite tradition is going to Disneyland to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! Disneyland always decorates the park beautifully; the buildings are all so festive.Read More
Visiting Valencia was a wonderful experience; after a 3 hour train ride we arrived. We already knew that there was a chance that it was going to rain, but we were happy that the weather was clear with only a few clouds.Read More
After visiting, Montserrat the next day we decided to keep exploring Barcelona. We hadn't really gone to the beach so that was the first place we went to early in the morning. Since it was a beautiful day, we wanted to enjoy the sun.Read More
I was so excited to go back to Montserrat; once the sun had risen I knew I was about to have a great hike and to see the most beautiful views of Catalunya. That wasn’t the only thing I was excited about; I couldn’t wait to go on the cable car to arrive to Montserrat.Read More
I am back from a lovely vacation in Spain; waking up early to go to the airport was so easy. It was actually really hard to sleep with so much excitement; I couldn’t wait to visit Spain again. Erik and I visited Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid, Segovia, Malaga and Salamanca.Read More
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays; unfortunately Erik and I would have to spend it apart some years because he was away at school so this year we decided to do something special. My sisters invited us to go with them to Mickey’s Halloween Party and we automatically said yes! We have been Wonder Women and Spiderman for Halloween before but this year we didn’t want to take our costumes so we decided to just buy t-shirts to be more comfortable but still have Halloween spirit I also wore my Toms Paseos, which are so comfortable.
Disney truly makes everything magical. We did all of the activities that we could and rode every ride we wanted there were hardly any lines for the rides the most we had to wait was 15 minutes for Indiana Jones (our first ride we went on since it's our favorite) and that line flew by with conversation. Space Mountain was Ghost Galaxy and personally I liked it a bit more than the original. For Splash Mountain we went three times and the third time we didn’t even have to get down from the log boat.
They also had special trick-or-treat stations with candy and healthy goodies they would decorate the stations so beautifully and guests could know where they were because they had a ghost Mickey by the entrance. They also had characters walking around the park or inside the treat stations to have photo opportunities.
Halloween Screams, a boo-tiful fireworks spectacular was magnificent, The Haunted Mansion was Nightmare before Christmas theme and the wait to get in was not long at all. We also rode Pirates of the Caribbean, which fit perfectly with the treat station.
his scarecrow was so funny he kept talking to everyone, and there were so many more scarecrow people walking around causing mischief.
To end the day we rode the Disneyland Railroad and it was a perfect way to end a magical day.
Disney is always such a wonderful experience and I am so glad that I was able to go with my sisters and Erik because they made it an even more magical event.
Erik and I went to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and it was fantastic the weather was wonderful and it was basically empty. I wore one of my Barcelona jerseys but this one is very special because it was a birthday gift from Erik he had it customized, it has my favorite number and my last name on the back. I also wore my Nike free shoes they are so comfortable, jeans and my San Diego hat because it was very sunny and it’s so important to protect ones skin. There weren’t that many people since kids have gone back to school and it was during the week. So we were able to do everything and not have to wait in lines or be in large crowds.
When entering the park you are greeted by the flamingos, which are one of my favorite animals, they are just so pretty they were being fed so they were very active.
The views of the park are breathtaking and the Balloon Walk balloon is just so breathtaking in person. The first thing that we did was go on the Africa Tram in the African Outpost, the line can get pretty long but we didn’t even have to wait in line we walked straight to our seats. I love going on the tram because you get to go around the animal exhibits and learn about the animals and how they are helping to conserve the wild life and they also talk about ways that we can help to conserve wildlife.
All of the staff around the park are so friendly and are so helpful if you have any questions, the keepers were also always asking if we had any questions and would talk about their animals the cheetah keepers were outside talking about the cheetah and it was amazing to see it so close and how his best friend is a lovely dog. We were lucky to see when they were giving a snack to the lions and they picked up such a huge bone with such grace that you would think that it was as light as a feather. The Gorillas were also so active the two little ones kept running around and wrestling with each other.
The elephants were going to be fed so they were all out and walking towards their food they are such gorgeous animals.
Part of the fun of the zoo is being able to interact with the animals and the Lorikeet Landing in Nairobi Village is a great way to do that.
The cost is very low to be able to feed them nectar, and if you don’t want to do that you can simply just walk in and see them. They have added more Lorikeets so it’s impossible to not see one and they are usually some by the rail waiting for someone with nectar.
He is a Real Madrid fan, we got some fun comments at the park from our jerseys.
What we were looking forward to see was the new
right from the beginning it was great the entrance is so pretty surrounded by a bamboo pathway with a tiger statue at the end. The tigers are close so we could see them very clearly and the gift shop was very well stocked of Tiger Trail souvenirs. They have a great waterfall with benches underneath it so its nice and cool, I love going to the
and it was such a relaxing day I definitely recommend checking it out if your ever in the area.

The other day it was such a gorgeous day that Erik and I decided to go on a hike, I love hiking because I would rather hike than walk on a treadmill. We went to
the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve;
the sky was a gorgeous blue color without a cloud in sight. It was great to walk and explore new areas that we hadn’t been to before. We go hiking a lot but not very often to this area because it is a little bit farther for us, but every time we go we try to take a different trail and go as far as we can. All of the people that we would see on the trails were so friendly and that’s also one of my favorite things about hiking, that when you see someone they are always friendly and want to know how your hike has been so far. I highly suggest going on a hike even if it is a small one, and if there’s an ecological reserve nearby check it out I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Yesterday, my boyfriend and I went to La Jolla Cove, the weather was great although it did get a bit chilly around four but with a light sweater that problem is solved. I really enjoyed myself especially after such a hard move I was able to relax at the beach. Watching the Seals is great, they are so cute and seeing them swim and then go to the shore is great. I could stay and watch them for hours but I couldn't because we wanted to get to the sand. We also went and climbed some rocks to get to see the waves crashing into them and see the crabs that are between the rocks which was really nice. I had such a great time, unfortunately I did not get a tan so I am still very white and I will have to head to the beach more often.
I had such a great day with my sister I always enjoy the time that we spend together. We had some errands to do in La Jolla and decided to go to the Cove since we were so close to the area. It was a beautiful day I really enjoy overcast days at the beach when I'm just strolling around. We saw the sea lions and some birds that were quite smelly we talked and laughed it was great.The water was especially cold but we still got wet although after a while I was numb. At the end, we saw the museum and unfortunately we had to leave before rush hour traffic started. It was so nice to be able to spend time with my sister because both of our schedules are so hectic. This trip just made me appreciate, even more the wonderful relationship I have with my sisters.
