Travel Near: Venice Beach

Once again, I love looking for local travels that don’t cost a thing.  I worked in Venice for six months, but didn’t take too many opportunities to explore.  I had a free weekend (thanks to recently leaving said job in Venice and instantly getting my weekends back) and decided to take that time to explore a new part of the city.

The Tuesday Morning Update

Hello lovelies! I’ve had a busy week and haven’t been great at updating the blog these past seven days.  I am alive, well, and exploring!  I have many more posts to come with updates on all that I’ve been seeing in the Los Angeles area.  Those posts will be coming in the next few days and weeks.

One thing that has been occupying a lot of my time has been a new job!  I am so excited to be starting a new job at Universal Studios Hollywood.  More on my career transition to come.  But please bear with me as I get my footing over there and, of course, continue to explore all there is to do in this city!



Post-travel Blues

I’m feeling the post-travel blues.  You know the feeling.  The one where you can’t stop looking at pictures of your trip, or talking about your trip, or wishing you could just go back to the time before you ever left just so you could relive it again.  That’s where I’m at.

I live the busy life of Los Angeles, and sometimes it is much too overwhelming for me.  Especially the week after my blissfully silent adventures in Yosemite.  I was just not ready to come back to the city this week.  I had a particularly bad Friday drive home.  More than a handful of cut-offs and a few close calls made my drive less than pleasant.

But a quick call to my sister reminiscing about the fabulous trip I just took was exactly what I needed.  There is nothing that cures the blues like reliving my adventures with someone experiencing my stories for the first time.  Once again Yosemite (and my sister) save the day.  I can’t wait until I can get back there.
