I’m all for mini vacations and for last-minute plans that turn into adventures. Living in Southern California is already really cool, but there is so much to do and it is fun discovering it all. So my sister and I decided to rent out a hotel out closer to Los Angeles and just call it a vacation. We were basically winging it but it was worth it because so many adventures came out of it.
My friend recruited my sister and I to go to the Observatory in Los Angeles to help one of his friends propose to his girlfriend. It was pretty scary because we couldn’t mess up or be too obvious, plus we had to guard the spot from other people, which was so hard! But we made it happen and it was the sweetest thing to witness.
So I’m a sucker for city lights, you can seriously put me up on a hill at night and I’ll just be happy looking out to the city.
Such a breath-taking view. I honestly could just stay there all night looking out and it would be perfect. This is the LA I love.
But of course all good nights come to an end and we ended up at Citadel, one of the coolest places to shop and also where our hotel was at, and we just roamed around and ate frozen yogurt before ending up at our room and then deciding to go out again.
So the main thing we were planning to do was to go to the Santa Monica Pier. Now for all you SoCal natives, this is whatever, but I have never gone. Yeah, pretty weird considering I was born and raised in California, so I had to visit.
It was such a cool place and thankfully when we were there it was pretty chill and not crowded. I love the ocean and hearing the crash of the waves was lovely. It’s one of those places that you can just go when you have a few hours to spare and just relax.
This whole little trip just made me realize how much more I want to live in LA and in a few years, it may happen, depending on how life goes.
P.S. I also made a video at Santa Monica so please watch (:
It was all great and I’m all for adventures. But for now, these memories remain and will definitely help me get through the week!
