Once I quit work, of course, all that travel went out the window. My travel schedule was never frequent enough to become a bother, so I was sad to give up all that jetsetting (and all those miles!). Fast forward to over a decade later, and I find myself once again visiting new places thanks to "work". Please note the accompanying quotes, because I've never really looked at blogging as "work", and blogging events are just too much fun to be called work!
My latest destination was beautiful Hermosa beach. I was flown there courtesy of Toyota, who hosted an event for their TWIN (Toyota Women's Influencer Network) bloggers. Hermosa (which means "beautiful" in Spanish) couldn't be a more fitting name for this place; it's just surf, sea, sand and sun as far as the eye could see. Toyota put me up in a gorgeous beachfront hotel, so even though it was the briefest of trips I got the chance to walk around and soak up the atmosphere.
