I feel as though all my blog posts in the past couple of months have had something along the lines of "sorry for forgetting to blog" in them.
I've not been myself lately but I won't go into that. But I promise I will try and get better.
Recently I've had SEVERE wanderlust. My brother came back from his trip to Australia two weeks ago, and he's been showing us photos and telling us all about it. It sounds amazing. Just travelling. Being free. But it's made me want to pack my bags and get on a flight somewhere.
The problem is -I'm too damn scared to do it on my own.
The one place I've wanted to visit for as long as I can remember is California.
I've never been, but for some reason i feel as though there's a piece of my heart there.
Is that weird? Something keeps pulling me there. And I'm not sure how to describe it.
I've actually been planning my trip there for years, but in the past week or so I've started really looking into. I even looked at flights and hotels the other day! And I've even thought about adding in Hawaii adn Arizona/ Grand Canyon in as well. I'm hoping to go Autumn this year (very unlikely) or next year. But as I said above, I am far too scared to go out alone.
All Photos can be found on my weheartit page.
I want to hike up to the Hollywood sign, take a road trip down Pacific Coast Highway, dance around Coachella, wander around San Francisco, rummage through Amoeba record store, go on Santa Monica's Ferris wheel, shop around Melrose and swim in the Pacific Ocean.
The weather here in England has been absolutely dreadful and although it's started to get a bit sunnier and warmer this week, I'm still dreaming of palm trees and paradise.
Maybe it's what I need. To do something I'm scared of. Maybe I need to get out of my comfort zone and experience a whole new way of life.
I guess what I'm trying to say without being rude is -I'm sick and tired of this place, and I need to get away for a while. And, as it would appear, my heart is yearning for the Pacific Coast.
What places would you recommend in the California/ West Coast/ Hawaii area?
