California Travel

Yosemite National Park - The Mist Trail - Vernal FallsCalifornia is the most populous state in the USA with close to 40 million residents, but outside of major urban areas, you can find large areas of pristine nature and lots of adventure to be had.

My home state is also a magnet attracting new residents and millions of visitors every year. The mild climate year-round, long sandy beaches, and snow-covered mountains make it an ideal place to live and work (mostly).

The one thing that repels some people away from California is the traffic. It is unbearable in the major metropolitan areas. So, if you plan to live here, stay away from city centers and work close to home.

Epic Road Trip Kuwait to Spain

Road Trip - mapAt the age of sixteen, my family embarked on an epic road trip from Kuwait to Spain and back. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and historical sites, met friendly people, and encountered a few challenges along the way.

The road trip, as intended, was a lot of fun – but it was also educational. I learned about different places and people, and most importantly, I realized that there is a vast world outside my neighborhood.

This trip also ignited my wanderlust for everything new and adventurous.

So, why am I writing about a trip that happened several decades ago? Two reasons: One, I came across a box of old trip photos that brought back memories. Two, I came to realize that this trip had a significant impact on my life and personality. I thought it was essential to commit it to memory.
