Climbing Mt. Adams

 

Yoga from camp

As I write this, my face feels like it’s melting off, my scalp is burnt and my neck and chest are beginning to itch.

Yes. This is a sunburn from hell.

But definitely worth it. (Well I’m sure I’ll think so in 3-4 days)

This past Saturday myself and himself decided to hike Mt. Adams. And no, it wasn’t just a last minute thing – this is something we had been talking about for a while. Soooo to celebrate my recent 200 RYT graduation (YAY!) we felt my first weekend free would be the time to do it. We checked the weather conditions and with nothing but blue skies, we gave it the green light.

Maui in 3.5 Days: My Little Guide

Marriott Wailea Beach Resort

I’ve somehow managed to justify flying 6 hrs one way for a long weekend since living in the US. Not in a million years would I have considered this back in Ireland! But I find myself putting in the mileage just for a few days – and it’s always worth it. One of the (and not to brag) many benefits of living in the PNW is the accessibility to Hawaii. Making it a perfect weekend getaway when you’ve had it up to your ears with the rain, cold and grey clouds. I’m not entirely complaining – I chose to live here knowing full well and appreciating the four season this magical part of the country gets. 🙂

NYC Chillin’

Central Park
Back to my NYC

I could honestly go back to NYC a bajillion times a year and wouldn’t get sick of it. If plan ‘A’ goes down the drain, no worries, there’s something else around the corner. Now, I’m sure this is true for most places and spaces but I can say from experience, that this place has nailed it for activities.

In the past, I’ve never really looked in to doing things like the Statue of Liberty, going to a show or checking out tourist sites but I gave an honest shot this time around. Saying that, basically none if it worked out but like I said, the plan B’s were better. 🙂 New York as whole is home to some of the greatest humans I know in the world, so my focus has always been to get out and see them. Since this was a quick trip though, I said I’d stay put in the city and hang tight with the slickers.

Holidays in Galway and Montana 12/19/17 – 01/03/18

Home, Galway
A holiday well spent traveling

Well I can hand on heart say that this was definitely a well traveled holiday season. From a work trip to Vegas, followed by 11 days in Ireland then a last minute trip to Bozeman Montana, I’m pretty confident that the PDX airport staff think that I work there!
