07/15: Independence day on Catalina.

My birthday is at the end of June and one of my presents this year was a day trip to Catalina Island to celebrate the 4th of July. Since we had never been to Catalina before, I was really looking forward to it!

01/15: Joshua Tree

Anka’s birthday is at the end of January and this  year, we celebrated with a two-day road trip to Joshua Tree National Park. It was our first time there and it was amazing! It is so vast and so diverse. You go from rocky hills to plains to boulders… so many photographic opportunities. Next time we go, we’ll probably camp in the park for an even better experience. Oh and you should see the sky at night, stunning!

At the end of 2014 Anka and I took a 4-day road trip to Monument Valley and drove, as much as we could, along Route 66. It was a lot of fun and now I really want to drive from L.A. to Chicago.
