I’ve had alot of mixed feedback on people’s experiences with LA. Many find it too hot with no seasonal change, too busy, too chill. Personally, I love it. I love the city, the beach vibe, the people and it’s constant warmth. It’s very similar to Sydney in that regard. It’s downfalls are it’s lack of public transport, thus resulting in terrible traffic making it an average of an hour to get basically anywhere. This generally has it’s residents staying in their little bubble and not leaving it much, unfortunately.
During this trip we stayed in Santa Monica/ Venice beach of which made daily visits to the beach only a short walk away. We strolled down to Venice at sunset to shoot this little number. Coming from Sydney on the east coast, a sun setting behind the ocean’s horizon is rare so we had to take advantage of it.
Hey all, just checking in from Texas! I’m not sure how I got this idea in my head that everyone in Texas is a cowboy that wears flannels, boots and hats, that every building would be a barn and there would just be tumble weed everywhere… but I did. And well, just like any other established city in the United States it’s full of high risers, Walmarts, Denny’s and department stores. I don’t want to say I’ve been ‘let down’ but someone really should have warned me.
At least the weather is warmer than the snow in Oregon!
Snapped this look while wine tasting in the vineyards in El Cielo, Mexico. A seriously stunning location where the mountains light up pink at dusk and the wine is bottomless. I’d love to travel more and more of this country, it’s culture and people are what makes it.
The first time I climbed Hollywood Hills in 2013 we got very, very lost. This time… we also kind of got lost. The dirt roads all look the same and if you’re unfamiliar with the hills then they kind of all look the same too. Oh and the fun part is that there’s no cell phone reception so you’re basically on your own, great fun! However, if you successfully find yourself at sunset at the top of the hill it will be a moment you will never forget.
Los Angeles at sunset is picture perfect and a traveller’s dream. I was fortunate enough to have spent the day with a fellow Aussie blogger, Jess Stein of Tuula and did this short walk with her and a few other friends of ours. This is a must do if you’re visiting LA.
Just checking in from sunny Los Angeles, California! I haven’t had a whole heap of time to connect to wifi and post but I’m shooting up a whole bunch on my snapchat (@jessiekhoo) and my instagram so please follow me there if you’re not already.
I’m travelling with about 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 friends, will be more tomorrow so it’s been a massive roller coaster of fun, here we did a little peruse of Rodeo Drive, I went to my first NBA game, we trekked the Hollywood Hills, went into the observatory at night and watched the stars and overlooked the city lights. More recently we have driven to San Diego and tomorrow we’re off to Mexico!
Hopefully I’ll find some internet (and time) down there so I can upload more
Last week I got the opportunity to go to Bali with 4 other amazing bloggers and the A Brand team. The experience was incredible, the weather was perfect and the girls made the whole trip the best weekend getaway ever.
From in-house massages, warm oceans, endless tacos and margaritas I think Bali is a stunning location to travel to if you’re not looking to fork out heaps of cash and experience the beautiful Indonesian culture. I undoubtedly will be heading back to this destination to see more of the landscapes and to try more of the delicious food!
One of the best parts of hiring a car while travelling is getting to stop at natural wooden playgrounds like this. I thought I’d wear an outfit that really blends into the surroundings (like camo) with sharks and floral and what not. Totally joking but I love mixing prints. Keepin’ it freshhh, keepin’ it real.
A few snapshots from our time in Queenstown, Rotorua and Hamilton in New Zealand. I’ve easily decided I would love to do more travel and adventure photography and blogging. I loved experiencing the Queenstown chill in the morning and dry heat hot enough to sunbake in in the arvo after the painful hike up the mountain, rafting in Rotorua, zorbing in hamilton, visiting the set of Hobbiton of Lord Of The Rings (my fave ever movies) taking the helicopter up the mountain amongst being with old and new friends.
I’ve been a little bit slack on social as I’ve been in New Zealand! These shots were taken when Klara and I went for a drive down the coast. So far so good, so follow more of my travels on instagram if you’re not already.
