All year round, I crave to travel. I was born with the travel bug. But it mostly hits hard during the beginning of Fall. Fall is my favorite season of the year, but California lacks in having a true authentic fall season. So I always tend to travel during the Fall/Winter season to different and new places so I can fully experience nature and feel at home.
When I lived in Portland, I woke up to rainy days and foggy cold mornings. Dream weather for me. I got excited when it was raining, I would make myself some hot chocolate, turn on Dario Marianelli and Jean-Yves Thibaudet while I coated myself with rib knits and leather boots, and layers of prints to go out into that wet city. I was in my element, and the dark tones and warm hues of the city just blended so well with my aesthetic. It was bittersweet when I moved back to California, but that is why I travel to Portland once a year, cause I can't stay away.
I've already got two trips planned with Fall/Winter. Portland in December, and another Big Bear trip is in the works. My friends and I traveled there over the summer, and now we are traveling back to experience the snow and are searching for the perfect cabin in the woods to rent out. Traveling and exploring places is what I am meant to do, in tribute to my nephew Gaige. He was an adventurous soul. Come next year, my friends and I are renting an RV and roadtripping to New Mexico to the White Sands Monument, I am beyond ecstatic! And shortly after that I am traveling back to South America with family AND friends.
So in spirit of the awesome gift from nature this morning, who decided to give us a foggy morning, I give you some travel inspiration. Via Pinterest / Via Free People cause they are on the same wave length as me! If you want to see more, follow me on pinterest.com/vacosta
