This weekend I stayed at the dome in the desert with Sean. As you might have seen in the previous post, we stopped by the Salton Sea on the way, and went on some photo adventures. This gorgeous dome belongs to the lovely Kathrin Smirke a fellow Aquarius sister. This is hands down the best birthday I have ever had. I had been wanting to go to Joshua Tree for years, and after I saw photos of this dome floating around I knew I had to stay there. Kathrin and her husband have created an amazing little home that they are so generous to share with us. Every corner of this geodesic dome is impeccably decorated. There are so many treasures in every nook of their home, like antique palm reading books, and vintage fortune telling games. I did not want to leave. Hopefully I can come back very soon!
We spent two amazing nights at the dome, waking up early to the quiet crisp air and gorgeous candy colored sunrises. Two of my friends joined us and we had planned on making dinner but ended up getting pizza from Pie for the People an amazing pizza place right up the highway. We had a little cake we brought and enjoyed the rest of the night with the wood burning stove on which was a nice touch since it was freezing out. The next day we met up with our friends and went into the park to rock climb and then explored the town. Joshua Tree is even better than I imagined. So many cute shops, boutique hotels and charm. I can see buying a little piece of land there and building a house sometime in the near future.
Everything in the house was really well thought out. They even have a fancy telescope you can use to look at the stars. OH thats another thing; you can see so many starts out there! Your nearest neighbors are about a block away but in the dead silence out the desert it feels like you are out there alone. This would be a great place to come and stay to meditate, write a book, or just get away from everything. Even though they had internet, it felt so nice disconnecting from the world (minus the instagram photos I took).
Check out the dome in the desert on airbnb, trust me you will want to stay here!
