“My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.” –Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I admit it. I am a beach girl at heart. Most of my childhood summers were spent at a sandy playground, playing in the ocean waves and watching the frozen lemonade cart go by. The atmosphere itself has always fascinated me, because it’s all-inclusive. The smell of the salt air, the relaxed vibe.
My name is Daya, and I love to travel. The bug hit me as a kid reading through state travel books and printing out a 28-page guide to Aruba. I live near the Gulf Coast, but love to explore anywhere there’s a body of water. My intent for this blog is to find a little piece of the coastal life in every city I can. The best waterfront restaurants in Seattle? Maybe. A tropical drink stand in the middle of Minnesota? Who knows? Please join me if you are fond of the water or just want to know more about my travel exploits without leaving your chair.
From time to time, you may also see me tossing out inspirational quotes, vacationing with my family, or perfecting the art of photography. So grab your favorite “vibe time” beverage and Welcome!
