Travel throwback – LA Vlog 2020


It is finally online! I miss so much traveling that I thought about putting together a sort of throwback vlog video about my first time in LA, which’s been almost a year ago now. I had a great time there visiting plenty of different areas, with amazing weather.

I basically went there for work purposes for 2 weeks. Even though I was working during the week, I had two full weekends where I could enjoy everything that Los Angeles has to offer. I won’t lie to you, shopping there is also an absolute must-do, especially when you compare prices in Europe… I enjoyed it but I will write another full article only dedicated to that because the topic is way too broad!

On this vlog you will see:

  1. Shopping in the area of Woodland Hills and Westfield Topanga + The village

I have spent the entire day in this place and my haul was pretty important I have to say πŸ™‚ But it was really worth it. I particularly enjoyed spending my time outside in the Village, strolling around and discover these really cute shops. If the weather is with you, and it was the case for me, it is such a nice way to spend you day. Especially if you have a little bit of shopping budget πŸ˜‰

2. Visiting Santa Monica Pier and the 3rd Street promenade

It was an absolutely amazing sunny day and experiencing 28Β°C at the beginning of February in LA compared to -3Β°C in Alsace, felt like summer in the middle of winter. Getting back to Europe after that was harsh, trust me ^^

Being on the 3rd street promenade was obviously the occasion to have a look at plenty of shops such as JCrew, Sephora, Doc Martens, and even TJMaxx a bit further up. The ambiance is really great with music and animations everywhere.

And after a full afternoon, there is nothing more amazing than to catch the sunset. I was literally mesmerized by the beauty of this moment. It was an amazing day.

3. Visiting the Griffith Observatory and Seeing the Hollywood Sign

The go-to place if you want to educate yourself about astrology. Moreover, the views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign are really spectacular. I have spent 4 hours there discovering about the history of the location and when it was built, plus all of the videos, animations and presentations about our universe are really well made.

View of LA

And that’s it for today guys, I hope you have enjoyed reading this article and watching my video Vlog. I cannot wait to be back in the US because that is definitely a great experience. LA is the place to go if you want to enjoy some nice weather during winter time. Let’s hope that we will be able to travel again in 2021, fingers crossed!

Take care πŸ˜‰
