LOST IN THE WILDERNESS

Hey friends...I've been away for a few days. I'm currently in Utah shooting a film, as well as checking out a few places for hopefully LOLA getaways in the future...and guess who is going domestic? That's right ...yours truly. I still will be focusing on Amsterdam, however I want to expand to various US cities in unusual places like Utah, Seattle, Portland, Chicago and somewhere on the east coast. Still in the air about that location.

Today was my late day on the set. I'm in lovely Ivins, UT and the scenery is absolutely stunning.

Isn't it breathtaking? So breathtaking that I got lost and was scared for my life. I think the movie 127 Hours played over in my head at least a million times.  I walked around FOREVER, then it started to rain so I took cover in a rock enclosure. 127 HOURS had become my life, and all I could think is "Please God let me keep my limbs" . Reception was spotty at best but I was soon able to get a call into park officials and send them pics of the things were around me.

They found me within20 minutes maybe less..definitely faster than Domino's delivery. Once I had been saved...well I needed a pic of course.

At first I swore I would never attempt hiking again, then after thinking about it a few hours I've decided to fight this fear. I'm going ALL IN, and signing up for a hiking retreat. Why? because if something scares you then you have to face it head on.

THAT'S how a LOLA woman does it! Wish me luck.

The Travel Bible

If I haven't mentioned it before...I'm anal (and no not the peepee in boom boom sort of way) in the retentive I need to have everything at my fingertips at a moments notice sort of way. I don't expect everyone to be as organized as I am...far from it, but I have a few suggestions to assist in making your journey a bit less stressful.

DO THIS, THIS...YES THIS RIGHT HERE:

Travel Bible for Asia Adventure ....holds confirmations, biz cards, coloring book, pens/pencils...everything at my fingertips.

Travel Bible for Asia Adventure ....holds confirmations, biz cards, coloring book, pens/pencils...everything at my fingertips.

Get a folder or a notebook. Unless you are super computer literate then set up a "trip confirmation" (or name it something that is actually cool) folder and stick it on your smartphone, or the tried and true...get an empty notebook to hold all your confirmations, add folders and put them in order (ie flights/travel, hotels, copies of passports,visas etc), a holder for receipts, biz cards, pens/pencils, coloring book. You name it, it's at my finger tips .

Just do it. Thank me later. (ps- I do both..mainly so my assistant can have a file of my locations, so it may come in handy). Granted, mine is currently HUGE but I will also be traveling for the next 2.5 months. Now check out Lexie's. That trip was 8 days (small floppy folder):
