This past week, I decided to take a trip solo to the city of Los Angeles. I firmly believe that not only is traveling good for your soul, especially when you’re alone, but also that if you truly want to test out a potential new home, you have to experience it alone.
I decided to rent a full studio apartment on AirBnB, so I could see what living in the city as a local could be like. I’ve been eyeing the state for years now, so I decided to do something about it.
One rough asset was not having a car, which I would obviously have if I moved there. And anyone who’s ever been to LA is fully aware that traffic couldn’t be worse! But my love for the state is surreal, and I am dreaming of making this goal a reality.
Here is a small photo diary of the things I saw, and what I did!
Small side note: I didn’t take as many photos as I normally would, because I wanted to truly enjoy the moment. And that I did! I want to make a point of doing so more often.
Besides walking around downtown and the city, which I’ve done on trips beforehand, I took off and explored different places, like Malibu, Calabasas, and took a train to San Diego!
First item on my list was driving to Malibu. So that’s exactly what I did.
Next up, I took a day trip and explored the beautiful and sunny San Diego.
Back in LA for the rest of the week, I covered Runyon Park and saw some stunning views.
Of course, I had to catch a beach sunset before the week was over.
And who wouldn’t want to end the trip with the staple food of LA?
Needless to say, the week was great! Definitely happy to have had time to recharge and amp up for the work week.
