It’s been (too) long since I’ve posted here. The routine starts again, we resume a lifestyle… and sometimes we forget to keep dreaming. Fortunately, I’m going back to Los Angeles in a month and a half ❤
I propose an article a little different from the others, simply to answer a question: Why do I love Los Angeles? Why Los Angeles and not another city? What made me fall in love with the City of Angels 10 years ago, and return there every year since? Why do I miss Los Angeles so much when I’m not there? Los Angeles, here’s my love letter to you.
Beach life & city
Why choose between the city and the beach, when you can have both? One of the great advantages of Los Angeles is that just a few kilometres away, you can find yourself on the rooftop of a building in the middle of Downtown and feel the “big city vibes” and then half an hour away, contemplate the surfers on the beach.
I have always liked big cities, but I am also very attracted by the “beach life” aspect. LA is a perfect mix of both, very precisely balanced. I particularly like the lifestyle of the cities at the beach, with this relaxed and bohemian atmosphere. But I also like to leave the beach to go to West Hollywood, and drink a cocktail in the heart of the entertainment.
People & tolerance
Certainly my favorite thing about Los Angeles: people! There, everyone smiles at you, is not afraid to give you a compliment or tell you an anecdote. I like this open-mindedness and the ability to meet people.
Tolerance is great and most people are open-minded; in Los Angeles, people are not afraid of difference, they celebrate it, it’s good to see and gives me hope for the future. Thanks to the Angelenos, you are a breath of fresh air.
The Entertainment Capital of The World
Ahh, Hollywood! This part of Los Angeles will never stop making me dream. Film studios, television, this little game of “Will I meet a celebrity today?”, Hollywood, its history and its actors.
When you walk around Los Angeles, it is very common to come across a filming, an interview, cameras capturing a unique moment. I love to think that on every street corner, something may be getting ready.
Nature & beauty
Los Angeles is full of nature and hidden treasures, and in the same city, you can go from a small heavenly beach to impressive mountains and waterfalls in the forest.
LA is far from being the “only superficial” city that some have made a name for themselves, and in just a few minutes you can leave the city and enjoy a whole day of fresh air and an incredible show.
Another very important point: the kitchen! Los Angeles offers a multitude of food options and cultures. Fabulous restaurants, foodtrucks, farmers markets, entire districts dedicated to food,…
When I travel to LA, cooking represents at least 50% of my pleasure. I am always looking forward to testing new flavours, discovering new products, and simply enjoying.
We’re not going to hide it from each other, I like what’s trendy! A pretty coffee shop, a cute concept store, pink walls… LA is the perfect place for anyone who likes to try out new trendy places… and set them up!
Everything is colorful, everything is fun… it adds a playful touch to the experience… For me, it’s impossible to get bored in Los Angeles. Just by walking around without a specific goal, you come across some unusual places to test!
I could go on and on for hours, but I decided to keep it short.
Los Angeles, thank you 💗
