Taking on Los Angeles

It's been exactly a week today, that I returned from LA. It's been a very odd week of trying to snap myself out of vacation mood. Is this called jet lag? Can jet lag last a week? If so, I (HELLA) have it!
Growing up in LA makes the returning visit a bittersweet one. I just always feel very 'in-place'. Or maybe it's not jet lag, but a slight off mood of missing the comfort of an old home? Or maybe I just miss In-N-Out? (PROBS!)
Whatever the situation might be, it was so much fun to have returned, even if it was a short return. The images are in no particular order, mainly because it was nonstop activities from the second we landed in LAX! Not all of the moments were permanently captured into a memory disk, but they were memorable moments nonetheless. I mentioned in my last travel post that I wanted to help others traveling easily have an access to some sort of list of places to visit, so here I am doing that once again! I spent want too many hours scrolling through suggestions, so here are the things I checked out and loved:

American Rag
The Row
Sunset Pacific Motel
Venice Beach *
Civil Coffee
The Observatory *
The Broad *
The Huntington Library *

Paul Smith (Pink Wall)
Winsome

I'm probably missing a few places, but this should be a good list to get you started if you happen yourself looking at LA as your next place to visit!
