travel blogger on minimalist beaches of costa rica

i am the sea

The sun had just begun its last descend. We had arrived there for a purpose, but that purpose was quickly lost. The golden sky-paint was kissing the stones and sea. The faint smell of rum and ocean beings came in waves with the breeze. The sound of reggae could be heard faintly playing on a beach far off. It was all too perfect to focus on anything but that. We had arrived to Costa Rica, on the sandy sunset beaches of Tamarindo. photography:JOSH WOLFE MUSIC | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | silk dress c/o:GIGI MODA   Our hearts were stirred and as if we had became a part of this place. A sort of blissful drunkenness swept over. Not from the rum punch or local beer, but from the air itself. A feeling of light and movement consumed us. The sand was soft, and just cooling from the afternoon sun. The water had a crisp bite that ways playful and inviting in the warm air. A group of a dozen comrades joined us there. A …

glamping view

when the rain and the sun rays hit you at the same time

The drive, incredible. Winding roads blinking with prolonged rays of sunlight flashing through the windows. There’s something magical about sunlight and the drops of rain from a summer storm hitting your windshield in unison. The streets glowed in the evening’s sunset, slicked wet from the storm, reflecting the trees and the golden sky colors around them like a mirror. The trees bent over each side, creating a lush green archway over it all. In the distance, the cool blue ridge mountaintops of the Appalachians. The journey itself made the ride worthwhile. The destination, Laurel Point cottage courtesy of Glamping with Pets. What is glamping? Precisely how it sounds, a vacation stay somewhere between the remote charm of camping and a glamorous vacation.

ever heard of glamping?

I hadn’t either until they reached out asking if I’d be willing to test drive the program. And who could resist something named somewhere between glam and camping? When I travel, there are a few things which always top my priority list: good food, warm air, an incredible view, a taste of the local culture, bottles of champaign, moments of peace, and of course – a luxurious experience from room to expeditions. “When you’re glamping, there’s no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to unroll, no fire to build. Whether in a tent, yurt, airstream, pod, igloo, hut, villa, cabin, cube, teepee or treehouse, glamping is a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.” – Glamping You had me at cabin and luxury. With destinations across the globe, Glamping is the evolution of travel where technology can connect people and experiences from all over the world. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III & iPHONE6 | location c/o:GLAMPING WITH PETS With the wonderfully chaotic lifestyle of a Creative Director by day and fashion blogger …
