Point Lobos - Mai - yoursjuliet.com

Hi everyone,
I decided to start a new blog series, where I review the last month. That way you can read more of what I have been up to, even if it doesn’t fit into the categories travel or eco-lifestyle. I am also heavily considering expanding my blog categories to some of what you will read below. So what happened in May?

A lot of science

I am a grad student in Molecular Biology and currently in my second year, which has a lot of milestones and hurdles in it.

Hi everyone,
it has always been my dream to go camping with one of the Tentsile tree tents, I mean look at all those incredible Instagrams! So earlier this year, we finally planned a camping trip to Yosemite National Park and I was lucky enough to find a Tentsile on Airbnb that we could pick up on our way! Isn’t it great that you can even rent camping equipment on that site now? The rental included all kinds of useful camping gear too, so we didn’t have to buy anything extra (the mister has quite a collection of gear, too).
