They would take me out to Joshua Tree on the weekends and string up some top ropes on Cap Rock or Trash Can Rock, and that’s kind of where it all began – and it’s been quite the long road since. I like all kinds of climbing, and all kinds of backpacking. I’ll take my backpack and go into the mountains, go fish a bunch, climb a few peaks maybe, just spend my life in the outdoors. It was a dream that originated a long, long time ago. I first started thinking of doing a hostel back when I traveled Central America: Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua. I spent five months total within those three countries, and I loved everything about staying in hostels: the people you meet, the budget lifestyle. I didn’t have very much money at all to spend on hotels or anything, so hostels were the way to go. I honestly always thought I would do a hostel internationally, maybe a surf or climbing hostel in a different country. Then a few years ago, I was looking through a real-estate guide in Bishop, because I wanted to live there – I didn’t know what I was going to do or how I was going to make it happen, I just knew I wanted to be in Bishop. So I saw this little property, not where the hostel is currently, but that’s when it hit me. I thought: this property is affordable, it’s downtown, I could probably start a little hostel. But it ended up not working out with the city at that location, and so I ended up finding the current location, which is a million times better.
One sofa to sit on, that was it. Months before the move from my rental, I decided to sell all my furniture and start from scratch in the farmhouse. And the process of re-decorating a home is a long one. Making decisions, what goes with what, and finding my personal style. I am constantly making changes and adding new things in each room. Sofa and Loveseat - IKEA Ektorp Stenasa White. White large throw pillows - HomeSense. Off white knitted throw pillows - JC Penny. Black buffalo check curtains - Country Curtains. Floor wicker basket - HomeSense. TV wall unit wicker basket - HomeSense. TV wall unit - Kijiji. The living room is beautiful with the black and white colour palette. It does take time and one needs to live in a place a while to get the feel of it. I'm one to talk. I've lived in the same house for 38 years. LOL And how my style has changed over the years. I love the buffalo check curtains. are the walls white or cream - I am loving the color and would love something similar in my own living room.
