My most recent excursion was a wistful and delightful weekend spent touring LA with a few of my favorite girls. We felt the sand between our toes, stalked celeb houses (I mean visited our friends, we’re not creepers…*wink wink), had great food, soaked up the sunshine, saw crazy sights, and the list goes on. Speaking of crazy sights, have any of you been to Venice Beach? Not the nice part that apparently exists (we never made it to that end), but the cirucus-meets-swap meet part with ‘Green Doctors’ every 20 feet and enough random people with random hustles to last a lifetime? If not, well, it’s one of those ‘you have to see to believe’ type of places. It has a bit of an Ocean City look to it, but in a California way. That was a terrible description, I know, but seriously, that’s what it’s like!
Have you ever visited a place that totally (and perhaps unexpectedly) blew your mind? LA has so many nooks and crannies, people and places, that I simply could not even imagine existed. Along with being in a place that brought to fruition facets of life that were previously unknown, have you ever met someone, who, in the first 2 minutes of meeting them, you say, ‘wow, this person is SO cool’? I don’t mean your average cool factor, but someone who is just different from anyone else you know. Someone who piques your interest, makes you think about things you never thought about before, and keeps you laughing. Long story short: LA has some cool people (although, to be fair, so does everywhere else). LA is one of the most interesting places I’ve visited-one of which I miss with every passing 30 degree (and below) day without snow…Where is the most interesting place you have traveled? What was so intriguing for you about that place? I want to know! I might find myself there some day and I want to be ready! 😉
