Sometimes sorting through vacation photos for the blog can be so daunting I find myself just trying to hide from my computer and the internet for days. But I always regret when I don’t post about a vacation- the best part of blogging is being able to look back the highlights over the years. So instead of putting it off until it’s a distant memory, I decided to summarize our week in LA with my phone pics, that you may have seen if you follow me on Instagram.
1// We spent New Year’s Day driving up PCH a little north of Malibu, stopping at a few beaches there and back. I swear, all years should start at the beach, it’s so refreshing.
2// One day we did the monster 6.4 mile hike up behind the Hollywood sign- something I remembered doing years ago with my college roommate that grew up in that area. It’s a view you totally have to earn by not driving (although there are shorter hikes up there), which means there aren’t a ton of people- making it even more awesome.
3 & 4// Brian had a photo shoot with a rad couple and their dog Harpo that own a fleet of old cars and live in this hillside Victorian house. We spent a memorable day with them, hearing lots of stories and looking at cool stuff :)
+ Spending New Year’s Eve with friends in Santa Monica.
+ A freezing morning at the Griffith Observatory.
+ Dinner with Brian’s aunt & uncle in Pasadena, and seeing people lining the streets for the Rose Bowl parade THE DAY BEFORE, which blew my mind.
+ Seeing 3 shows at UCB- especially the Wild Horses show. These ladies are some of my favorite improvers on podcasts and it was so awesome to see them do improv live!
+ Walking around Silver Lake, eating tons of good food, and drinking lots of great coffee and cocktails.
Well, that’s our trip in a nutshell :)This entry was posted in travel and tagged Cabazon dinosaurs, hike the Hollywood sign, instagram, Jeep Willys, Los Angeles, Malibu, The Donut Hole. ← Walking Around Silver Lake Pattern Mixing with Vintage & Polka Dots →
