August slipped away faster than I could even think of getting out a post about all my adventures. The second I thought I had time I unexpectedly received a full-time job offer and within 48 hours was thrown into my first adult job. So it has been a busy past few weeks with lots of adjustments.
I got to spend three weeks in the summer spending time with 2 of my best friends from college and it was epic I thought I would take you along on a trip down memory lane.
The Beyond Van Gogh: Immersive Experience is an exhibit that is currently happening around the country. The exhibit’s purpose is to show the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh in a way never experienced before. With the use of projection and original scoring, you can view 300 of Van Gogh’s art as though you are in the paintings.
My uncle bought us tickets for my birthday last year, but it didn’t come to San Diego until this month. I thought it was worth the wait.
You begin in a room filled with projected information depicting Van Gogh’s life and includes quotes as well as empty frames creating the walkways. They are also a fun photo opportunity.
Then the best part and the reason to go: the Projection Room.
Lake Tahoe is one of my favorite places. I have been going up there since I was 2. My grandparents have a house and I would always go spend up to 3 weeks with them in the summer, doing swim lessons, being on the lake, and winning library reading contests.
Did you know Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the U.S? It has a ton of cool history and was even frequented by Frank Sinatra.
The lake goes across the California and Nevada border so it’s easy to spend the day going back and forth between states depending on what adventures you are having.
There are apparently a ton of cool trails for hiking but as I am not at all a hiker, I have compiled a list of fun things to do that do NOT involve hiking.
Florida is always talked about as the spring break destination for college students. While I never did go on a Florida Spring Break trip, my college roomie and I thought it would be the perfect graduation getaway.
After not getting to graduate together we had to have our graduation getaway, especially because without college we won’t see each other as much since we live on opposite sides of the country. 🙁
The first thing we need to discuss is the beach. Whenever I thought of Florida I always imagined super bright sun and white sandy beaches. For it being my first time in Florida it did not disappoint.
Since its premiere in 2016 Stranger Things has quickly become a favorite of many. I know I got sucked in when I binged it with my brother before season 2 came out. (I was a bit late to the party) Season One is by far my favorite because I think it’s the best overall season but I am invested and the pushback of season four is not something I am happy about.
While we are all waiting for the next season to finally grace our televisions there is another way to visit Hawkins.
Located in downtown LA, Hawkins has been brought to life in the Stranger Things Drive in Experience.
