Laguna Beach, California

I don’t know if you are tired of seeing numerous beach pictures but this will be my last beach post for a while…or will it? This is actually one of my favorite one’s that I’ve been to in Southern California (well, besides La Jolla, San Diego but I didn’t get to go there this time around). I went here as soon as I got off the plane. I landed at 8am and was out of the airport by 9am. I left behind freezing temperatures along with snow fall in Chicago and landed to an 80 degree sunny California. So it was only obvious that the first thing I do was hit the beach! One of the reasons why I love Laguna Beach is because it has sandy, rocky, and grassy areas. All these options on one beach are pretty awesome if you ask me because you don’t always want to…

Venice Beach, California

Another beach post? Yes. And still there might be another because it’s my favorite place to go to in Southern California. In all of my 10 years living here, I never went to Venice Beach. Mostly because it is one that is near Los Angeles and it’s just a hassle to get in and out of due to the traffic that it’s famous for. My friends who know me well are always telling me that I needed to go here and that I would really like it. I was told that I should walk on Abbot Kinney Blvd as well as go to the Venice Canals and that is exactly what I did! We parked in one of the Marina Del Rey Public Parking Lots and walked towards Abbot Kinney Blvd. This was such a cool street with a lot of very artsy shops and restaurants. My friend and I…

Corona Del Mar, California – A Beautiful Evening

Okay, more from Chicago later because now I am in CALIFORNIA and too excited to share what I have been up to so far. One of the best parts of being here is the fact that I left right when the snow started in Chicago. So I win! (If you couldn’t tell I am not the biggest fan of winter and snow.) As soon as I got here, I knew I wanted to go to the beach. So I planned a bonfire for the very next day, which is one of my favorite things to do. For this, so far I have found that Corona Del Mar Beach is the best. It’s located in a residential area and not too crowded. There are several pits located on the sand to make bonfires. For a bonfire you need: coals (and or wood but in Corona Del Mar you aren’t allowed to…

A Road Trip – LA to Chicago Day 3: Broken Arrow, OK & Springfield, MO

The drive in Oklahoma and into Missouri was nice because we saw a lot of ranches and stopped near cows and horses to take some pictures.We didn’t spend much time in Broken Arrow except have Thanksgiving at my friend’s uncle’s house. Since this was during Thanksgiving break, there was no way I was missing out on a good turkey meal! The most memorable part of that night was the pecan pie and the bed in which I slept. Oklahoma knows how to make pecan pies and beds! Apparently they also have a huge corn festival every summer which is on my list of things to do; I love corn. So, Oklahoma, I will be back for you! We made a spontaneous stop at the salt mines in Missouri. They were called Fantastic Caverns and conveniently on our route. I think what made our visit to this place more exciting was…

Hello!

Hello readers (hopefully people beyond my family and friends as well), After being born in Magburaka, Sierra Leone and living in five other places in the past several years, I have been fortunate enough to travel and see a few places around the world. And in doing so, I’ve decided I should write about my experiences. I have a Bachelor’s in Interior Design along with a Graphic Design Certificate and have been working as a Production Artist for various stationery design companies which I REALLY enjoy. Besides my love for design and everything creative, I have learned that I am also really passionate about traveling and food (eating it, making it and looking at pictures of it). As much as I love traveling, I have also realized that I don’t always have to buy a ticket abroad just to fulfill my appetite for new places and adventures. I can do it by discovering the place…
