SUMMER: Cruisin' together (Part 1)

Road trips have always been a favorite past time of mine during all seasons of the year. Whether it be to Arizona to visit family (my mom was born and raised in Tucson), or to San Diego for a quick day trip, to Vegas for my sister's basketball tournament, or even to NorCal just because it was more cost efficient, road trips have always given me a sense of family and togetherness.

You sit in the same car with your enthusiastic parent(s), annoying siblings or cousins, and your ever so patient friend or s.o. for hours. You switch off drivers to lessen the amount of driving fatigue. You try to find the best music to play for your road trip, but find out that T-Mobile's data service really does suck and you are left to play the songs you downloaded onto your phone. Pitch Perfect OST for the 3rd time? Heck yeah! And you start playing the name game, having you start of with the letter "A' for a boy's name. "Aladdin!"

But there's that special feeling when driving and/or riding in a car with people you love, from point A to point B - towards that final destination you all had been waiting for. These are the same type of people who are your best supporters in life, sticking by your side through all of your highs and lows of life. Looking out the window makes you see life in a different perspective and all of the opportunities that await. Feeling overwhelmed and need to take a break and fill up that motivation or creativity tank? No problem. Take a class. Join a club. Volunteer. Start a blog (heh heh). But most importantly, surround yourself with the people who love and support you. As long as you keep your goals alive and actively seek to pursue them, you can do no wrong. That's where I am today, and I'm loving every bit of this journey.

It's been about two years since I last left on a plane to travel, but road tripping and spending time with family and friends during these past few months has definitely filled my void of traveling and inspiration in more ways than one. But even after all of the fun and traveling, there's nothing like that feeling of coming home to your own bed. You know it's true.

What's one of your favorite road trip memories?
Hope you enjoyed the first part of my SUMMER 2015 series. Stay tuned!

  1. Summer road trips remind me of my childhood. I've gone to AZ and trekked to Yellowstone all thanks to these road trips in the summer. Great pics! It's nice sometimes to not be on the driver's seat. :)

    1. It really is nice to know that there are local vacation spots that are just a drive a way. Thank you! Yes, it is refreshing to take a break from the driver's seat so you can really take in your surroundings and relax.
