We had the good fortune of connecting with Darina Baebler and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Darina, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Honestly connecting with people from my heart and soul. Genuine connection, that is what Sunsets by Darina is all about. It’s truly about being able to share the message of light, love and peace from Mother Nature to everyone. I’m originally from the Czech Republic and growing up, my Family would take me on nature trips every chance we’ve had ,especially since I’m coming from an industrial town. But nature has been calling me since my early age and I truly believe that is why I do what I do today. Sunsets by Darina is mostly uplifting blog about the important connection between our beautiful Earth and ourselves. You can definitely find yourself in nature and help many others by sharing nature’s powerful gifts and beauty. Live like there is Heaven on Earth has always been my vision and hope for everyone. Please cherish and protect our beautiful Earth 🌎 πŸ™.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What I’m most excited about as Sunsets by Darina that my images can bring joy, balance and peace to people’s lives.. There is nothing more humbling and sweet is when I receive messages from people telling me how my images and words brought them happiness in their daily lives, especially in turbulent times in today’s world.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
San Diego is truly a gem for beauty. There is so much to see . If my close friends or my Czech family would come and visit I would take them to see La Jolla beaches, I absolutely love it there. Especially near the Scripps pier, there is so much to see and explore. Of course Balboa park would be on our list along with the famous Hotel del and as for a unique dining experience i believe Little Italy is a great place to visit and try many unique restaurants ,they have a great gelato there as well. My top list of places to visit would be the Meditation Gardens in Encinitas as well. One of the most beautiful spots in San Diego . Not very far from the gardens is a very delicious and nice European restaurant and market called ” Tip Top Meats” that has a great menu for reasonable prices and you feel like you are in Europe for a bit. So that’s nice as well.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
i would love to say a very Huge Thank you to my entire Family for their unconditional love and support, my amazing friends Jojo, Michaela, Heidi, Tom, Tina, Kristen, Amy and many others and my sweet beloved pets for their selfless endless love, my wonderful followers whom became my friends for believing in me from the beginning.
