When I was younger when we were traveling, I would always have my parents buy me postcards, but I never sent any to anyone.

It was more of a souvenir than something to send someone. Sending postcards never became a thing for me because I never knew my friends’ addresses, which would have helped. When I toured Europe with my parents when we used to live in Italy, I would always take charge of the Minolta film camera we had and would try to photograph postcard-worthy photographs––whether it be scenic or a statue of something.

One of my favorite spots on the island is this scenic point right after Hanauma Bay––if you’re coming from town. It gets quite windy here, but there’s something relaxing––and a little nerve wracking––about walking down to where the waves crash along the side of the cliffs. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a pretty gnarly photo with the waves crashing behind you.

Is there a place you enjoy visiting that’s a little dangerous? Let me know where!

Backyard Bowls

It doesn’t really sound like what you think it would be.

Backyard Bowls offers acai bowls, teas, and smoothies that are perfect to start the day or to have as a mid-day snack. Tiff and I decided to check out the new location on Beverly, located right next to Blue Bottle Coffee. Kind of by default, I ordered the Island bowl, which had Granola, Blueberry, Strawberry, Coconut Shavings, and Honey.

I still gotta try other things on the menu. What are some other places in LA to grab a divine acai bowl? Let me know!

Aloha

Showing aloha in Hawaii can mean several things.

One of my favorites is when you let someone in front of you (when you’re driving), and they throw a shaka or a “thank you” wave. It’s definitely something not many people do in the mainland. The lifestyle on the islands are one hundred percent different than that in Los Angeles. The speed limits are slower; the streets are cleaner, and the air isn’t suffocating of smog.

What are some other places that you know of where aloha is displayed?
