Ok, still playing catch up with these posts. Let’s talk a little bit about a place I consider one of my “Home Sweet Home”s.

UTAH!

A Day in Mexico

IMG_1596

It’s been a bit since I wrote this post – the holiday season, plus going to London to work in a Christmas Market for a month, plus moving to DC…it slipped my mind. So here it is, two months later…

I can officially not use the phrase, “I’ve been to Madagascar, but not Mexico which is a two hour drive from my house”. I figured it was about time. I mean, twenty eight years (give or take a few years living abroad) and I’d never been to the closest country? As I may have mentioned before, I have a goal of hitting 50 countries by thirty and that thirty year mark is approaching scarily fast. So Mexico became country number 48.

I’ll admit it up front: I am not LA’s biggest fan. I think of it less as a proper city and more as a large urban sprawl with horrendous traffic and poor public transport.

I’ve only got a wee bit of insight into Vancouver as I only tacked it on to my trip to Seattle and Bellingham for my flatmate’s wedding, but what a lovely two days I spent there! I caught the train, my preferred method of travel when possible, from Bellingham to Vancouver (the views weren’t half bad).  Upon arriving at the train station in Vancouver, its a six minute walk over to the metro which you can then catch to downtown Vancouver. On the return leg I caught the metro to the bus station and took a bus back to Seattle (not as great as the train, but certainly cost effective).

Eateries in Laguna Beach, California

I’m missing home a bit – mostly the food (veggie-friendly Kosovo cuisine is rather redundant), but also, ya know…my family and beach too so thought I’d chit chat about home. Though Laguna Beach is a tiny little town, it is chalk full of amazing spots to grab a bite or a drink. These are my more frequented spots. Continue reading “Eateries in Laguna Beach, California”
