Desert Getaway: A Joshua Tree Travel Diary

Hello y’all! It’s been a good minute since I’ve posted something on here.

These past few weeks have been super hectic for me due to my summer classes, internship, and room remodel. I’ve been up on my feet and on-the-go. I feel like ever since coming back from studying abroad, I’ve had such a major travel bug. I don’t know if you’ve been following me on my social media, but I’ve just been finding ways to get out of the house and explore. Whether I am exploring a new part of San Diego or going on random road trips, it’s been such an adventurous summer! I don’t want it to end, to be honest.

With school coming up, I wanted to take the time to unplug and spend some time outside of the city. Taking some time off and going off the grid was exactly what I needed to prepare myself for the upcoming school year. Eugene and I have been itching to travel together for a while now. With a full tank of gas, jugs of water, dozens of groceries, a bomb playlist, and great company, we headed out to Joshua Tree for the weekend.

We were able to kick back and enjoy each others company in the cutest Airbnb. It was super comfy and had all that we needed for our weekend in the desert! Thank you Jessica for hosting us.

When we weren’t climbing massive rocks or hiking amid beautiful flora and fauna in the national park, we explored the eclectic little town of Joshua Tree.

Here are some pictures from our trip:

Joshua Tree, thank you for the perfect desert retreat. I will never forget your breathtaking sunrises. Until next time!
