VACATION: CAN I TAKE A PALM TREE HOME WITH ME?

August 21, 2012









All photos except the ones of me were taking by me

Sorry for the delay, but I am finally back from California. It was extremely tough to leave, especially since my flight home was delayed two times but here I am back in NYC. California has always been the one place that makes me feel like I'm home, and I always catch myself smiling when I'm there. Each time I visit, I always convince myself that I will move there, and this time was no different. There is just something about LA that has my heart.

I went to stay with my family that lives in the South Bay. Which means I spent most of my stay at the beaches (Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Venice Beach, Palos Verdes and Santa Monica). After a week of that who would want to go back?. I also got to go to my uncles 50th birthday bash which consisted of food, drinks, fireworks, family, good times and plenty of laughs. After the party I spent time walking around the pier and beach with friends at night. It was the perfect way to spend my last night there.

Above is a mix of some photos, I have about 200 photos so it was pretty hard to pick only a couple. Below are some Instagram photos I took as well.

I hope every one had a great week!

  7. Beautiful pictures! Specially the ones of the beach.. the water looks quite refreshing for the LA sun! I bet you spent your whole vacations swimming and getting a tan ^ u ^)/

    It really looks like you had an amazing time, everything there looks magical.. then move over there, if that's your dream! I bet you won't regret it.. but, in the meantime, I guess you can take a palm tree home with you so it remind you of your goal, right?? ; u ;
