I think seeing and exploring places nearby are just as important as traveling around the world! The travel bug has got me good, but while I'm saving up for my next trip/moving, I like to scratch the itch and go somewhere local. This is me trying to follow my own advice, living minimally and "less is more" while still making the most of what you have! All you need is a car, or maybe public transit, and either go with a friend or go solo! I love bringing my camera to take landscape shots. Even though this location was only an hour or so away from where I live, it reminds me that beauty is everywhere you look, so stop and take a moment to appreciate where you live!
These photos were taken in Napa Valley, CA. I am stunned by the amazing autumn colors and couldn't resist making the day trip up there!
