I have always found that I learn the most about myself and the amazing world around me when I write, and when I adventure – so I decided to start this blog! I thought it would be fun to chronicle my life and adventures, and I hope sharing my experiences can help others fuel their pursuit of adventure, happiness, and travel too.

In addition to physically traveling the globe, I am also currently journeying towards a degree in Nutrition & Dietetics. Update: I AM FINALLY A CERTIFIED YOGA TEACHER! I have 250 hours of Yoga training under my belt thanks to the amazing yoga teacher training program taught at my college, as well as an unforgettable yoga retreat in Panama.

You can find me on a hiking trail or prancing around at a music festival in my free time, so expect those to show up as well.

Feel free to ask me any questions about these topics (or even personal ones), I will be more than happy to answer them!

Cheers from the OC!

    Happy New Year to you (guys), too! 🙂 (“Guys” of course includes the beautiful Mr. Woof.)

    I’m looking forward to following your adventures and watching this blog grow over time. When I saw the pictures and videos from your travels to Switzerland, I immediately took a trip down memory lane. To make a long story short: When I was a child, I was afraid of flying – until my best friend’s parents invited me to a 10-day vacation in St. Gallen and made me fall in love with the country(-side) and its lovely people so much that I returned as often as possible and flying eventually became the most normal thing in the world to me.

    Good luck with your exams! I’m on a low-glycemic, gluten- and dairy-free diet since June 2017 and always hungry for (more) nutrition-related knowledge.

    Greetings from Germany

      Hi Thorsten!
      Thank you for your kind comment! I used to be afraid of flying as well. Glad we were both able to get past that fear 🙂

      Hope to make a visit to Germany someday!
      Mit freundlichen Grüßen

    Hi Cierra!

    Thank you for your pleasantly bilingual reply and extra props for using the umlaut! 🙂 I’m sorry this is super late, but I just got back from a 6-week island hopping adventure around the Canaries (La Palma => La Gomera => Tenerife => Gran Canaria => Fuerteventura => Lanzarote) and Madeira yesterday evening. I will rejoin Instagram soon, use it as microblogging platform focusing on travel (by car, plane AND motorcycle), fitness and music and share some of the best pictures and videos I’ve taken there.

    We’re looking forward to welcoming you to our country someday! 🙂 I hope to return to Cali within the next 2 years and grow up or end up living there in another life and make my dream of becoming a UCLA Bruin come true. (I’m already 34, so that ship sailed a long time ago.)

    Je te souhaite un bon week-end ou, comme on dit au Canada français, une bonne fin de semaine!

    • Cierra Nicole March 2, 2018 at 8:54 pm Reply

      No worries for the delay. That adventure sounds amazing! Are you going to be posting pictures on a blog or social media? If so, please share your website or username 🙂 I would love to see!

      I’ve only been living in California for about three years, but I absolutely love it compared to the small desert city I’m from. You will love living here! The weather is so perfect.
      Have you considered Orange County? The traffic is incredibly better compared to LA! And I personally think it’s a lot more beautiful hehe.

      Hey hey, it’s never too late to go back to school 🙂

      Je parle français! (Réellement, j’apprends le français, mais je sais beaucoup!)
      Merci, je te souhaite un bon week-end aussi!

      À plus tard,

      Cierra Nicole

        Hi again!

        First of all, I wish you a happy International Women’s Day!

        I’m going to be posting them on Instagram. I’m afraid I was a bit inarticulate when I wrote that “I’ll rejoin Instagram soon” and use “it” (that is Instagram) as a “microblogging platform”. I deleted my Instagram account earlier this year, meaning I’ll have to rejoin and start from scratch. I think I’ll be back within the next 2 months – depending on the amount of work I’ll have to deal with at the office and how long it’ll take me to sort out some family problems that made me delete it in the first place. I’ll definitely let you know! I’m also toying with the idea of starting a WordPress blog later this year – provided that I can get (back) enough Instagram followers/potential blog readers to justify the extra time and effort. Anyway, I hope you’ll like some of my pictures and of course I’d be happy to have you as an Instagram friend! You’re not only heartwarmingly beautiful on the outside but – much more important – you also seem like a very kind, affable, grateful and humble person. Speaking of pictures, I just saw your amazing Iceland post (wow!) and will give you feedback soon, plus I really love the two new blog pictures above and the associated black and white picture with the “Wishing Girl” caption (extra props for listening to Lola Marsh!) on your Instagram! 🙂

        That makes me happy for you! 🙂 I definitely consider OC as a future vacation destination and of course – judging from what I see and read on the internet – I can also imagine myself living there at a later stage of life or following my years at UCLA in another life… if there is one.

        Haha, I’ve been well aware of your French roots and knowledge of the language since the day I discovered your blog and Instagram! I remember one of your posts containing a quote by Paulo Coelho translated into French. As I said before, I very much appreciated you writing “mit freundlichen Grüßen”, so I decided to reciprocate the same kind of effort and close my comment in French. 🙂

        Here are two of my favorite French songs of recent years I’d like to share with you:


        I hope you like them (or at least one of the two)!

        P.S. I’ll try to be briefer next time! 🙈

        • Cierra Nicole March 15, 2018 at 6:37 am Reply

          You always have the sweetest things to say, thank you so much!!!
          Your comments honestly make my day 🙂

          You will definitely have to keep me updated on your new Instagram (or potential WordPress)!

          I absolutely adore Lola Marsh – I’m actually very surprised that you’ve even heard of her… I guess she’s blowing up!

          Thanks for sharing those two French songs! You have good taste. Feel free to share music with me anytime – I’m always looking for new music to add to my Spotify playlists 🙂

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things
    out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it http://www.bagtheweb.com/b/VHSos3
