I’ve always loved to travel by train, and an InterRail adventure travelling from one corner or Europe to another has been on my travel wishlist for years. Unfortunately I never seemed to manage to find a couple of months to spare to actually make it happen. But rather than putting it off forever, I decided to start a bit smaller, picking a shorter route to give me a taster this summer.
So as you know by now, I live in North San Diego County. And if you haven’t heard it on the news, there are 7 fires by my house.
Here’s my fire story.
I came home during lunch yesterday because I saw smoke and my mother was worried.
There are 12 people and 1 dog staying in my house.
They include my family and the family of my mom’s friend who were evacuated from their house.
A couple don’t speak English, so here is where my Spanish skills come in to play.
I have asthma so the smoke that comes into my house is kind of choking me.
By the front door is my bug out bag.
I cant do any homework because I’m stressed and there are loud, frantic Spanish people running a muck in my house.
There is a 10yr old girl and today is her birthday and she’s worried about her house being burned to ashes.
The view outside isn’t a pretty one.
But in the throws of all this mess we are like a big family, making jokes, listening to the news, playing music, and praying for the best.
I hope everyone can stay safe and find their houses intact when they return.
Hey, I’m Sabrina. I have a friend named Nik. We’re partners in adventuring and like to explore our neighborhood and world. That’s why this blog is called BeAdventurous.
I live in beautiful SoCal (Southern California for those of you who are unfamiliar) and enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, camping, and basically anything dealing with the outdoors. I was a Girl Scout and now I’m a Venture Scout. What can I say? I’m a sucker for fresh air in the morning.
This blog is intended to inspire others to go outside and be adventurous. Mainly I will write about living in North County San Diego, but these tips and activities can surely be applied anywhere else in the world.
