Channel Islands National Park

Channel Islands National Park

After yet another short four hour drive down the coast of California from Pinnacles National Park, we arrived to Ventura, CA where the Visitor Center is for Channel Islands. And boy oh boy, Channel Islands National Park…. what a gem.  This park does take a little bit of pre-planning. There are only three ways to get to the islands; by a private boat, a plane through Channel Islands Aviation, or – the most cost effective and popular option – by boat…

We Still Don’t Know What We’re Doing

We Still Don’t Know What We’re Doing

It seems like it was a month ago that I wrote a post about relationships and van life… but it was one year ago, on our one year wedding anniversary. Today marks our second wedding anniversary, so I re-read what I wrote a year ago to see if it hold true: communicate, take alone time, don’t be a jerk. And yes, it does.

There has only been one huge screaming fight, about six months in of us dating. But overall, when we disagree or frustrate each other, we tend to make up pretty quickly and easily.  Now, when we decided to do this…

Anxiety & Excitement

Anxiety & Excitement

We have our van. It’s built out (mostly). We’re packed (a little). We’ve said goodbye to our friends (as many as we could). We have our route (kind of). We have our budget (but need more money). Luca is pumped (he has no idea what’s going on).  I’m freaking out a little.  Luckily, I have Mike. While I’m panicking a bit, I still know everything will be great because I have him. Sorry not sorry for the sappiness – but he’s…
