I’ve been back in Brooklyn for a full week now and getting back into the mode of my regularly scheduled program. I’m back to work, being a cat mom, and of course…runnin’ the coolest f*n travel blog in the world!
I have to be a hunnit with ya’ll, I’m not the most ‘exciting’ traveler. I like to move like a local wherever I go, so that means a sh*tton of chillin. I was in LA for three weeks and it was the perfect mix of bumming on the couch watching cult documentaries on Netflix, strolling around aimlessly, and seeing LA like I never had before. Check out my reverse bucket list!
