Alamere Falls

The other day my girlfriend and I drove out to Bolinas and rode our bikes to Alamere Falls at Wildcat Beach. It is one of two "tidefalls" in California (the other being the McWay Falls in Big Sur). Northern California is a truly beautiful and humbling place, and I am so lucky that I live and have grown up here. There are not many places in the world where you can ride your bike to a waterfall on the beach and the whole ride there being almost as beautiful, traveling along the coast and through the hills and wildflowers. Here are my favorites, enjoy!

Euro Trip

Last week I got back from a 2 week vacation to Europe with my 2 best friends Aidan and Lo. Lo has been studying abroad in France the past 10 months, and all of us ended school at around the same time so me and Aidan headed over to meet up with her and travel around. We hit Paris, Bordeaux, Amsterdam, Madrid, and Lisbon (although I didn't have my camera in Spain and Portugal due to tight packing). Overall it was an incredible learning experience traveling alone and everyday was a crazy European adventure. Very exhausting by the end, but definitely had the time of my life. Here are my favorites, enjoy!

Although we didnt go into the Louvre, we walked around the courtyard and pyramid

The main gist of our trip: good food and wine everywhere we went!
