Last weekend we went to Astoria & the Oregon coast, and I’m so happy I was able to capture some video footage of our trip! It’s a new goal of mine to put together videos of all our trips. Travel, even small trips, just always makes me feel so good and happy. I feel like I forget so many of the little details and feelings so often, and a vlog is the perfect way to capture it all and return to it later.
While I grew up camping all the time in the summer, and its certainly the best season for it, it’s also when B is busiest at work, so this was actually our first trip out together this year! I feel so grateful that we live in a place where there are beautiful natural areas to visit and camp at within a couple hours of our house. The Oregon coast is just 2 hours away. It makes it so easy to get out explore when you’re able to camp – it’s much less expensive than hotels or other rentals, and so many more places are accessible this way. While I love visiting cities and foreign countries, it’s just not possible to do that all the time! Our camping adventures fill the void while we save up for bigger trips!
I hope you enjoy it! Here’s some of the trip details, if you’re curious…
