Okay…I’m not going back quite yet, but it’ll happen soon enough. The warm sunshine, fresh ocean air, constant buzz of energy & the endless nooks and crannies of the cities to explore; that’s California calling my name.
Also…yes the title is a Biggie reference [slow clap for you if you caught on to that].
Last visit to California, took my sister and me to Santa Monica, Venice Beach, LA, Malibu, Newport Beach & the Hollywood Hills.
On probably the hottest day of the trip, we decided to hike up to the Hollywood sign to get that ever-classic, slightly been-there-done-that white girl picture of ourselves in front of the giant letters. Despite all my huffing and puffing, incredibly dehydrated [finished my water bottle in the first 30 minutes], tad hungover attitude…it was 100% worth it [for me at least…my sister might’ve been regretting my company]. Honestly, I didn’t think I would be able to do it and I was being dramatic the entire way up haha. The view & the satisfaction of completion at the top justified all that sweaty energy spent. I highly recommend adding it to your bucket list. Oh, and bring your sister along…they are hella’ good motivators.
What else did we do on our week long California seeeester trip?
Well…we hit up a Dodgers game [confession: we took a nap @ the hotel and slept through the first 5 innings], we went to Warner Bro Studios & Universal studios [we are diehard Harry Potter fans #Gryffindor], had a beach day in Malibu, shopped [*sighhh* window shopped] Abbot Kinney Boulevard, jumped around the city of LA a bit & bumped into a former Bachelorette and her new beau [Jojo & Jordan].
All in all, it was unforgettable.
