The LA Diaries: Being a Beach Bunny

The Los Angeles Diaries: Being a Beach Bunny
I remember getting flustered while searching for the perfect swimwear for this trip. I finally found it...and never wore it. You would have thought that the sunny metropolisis was enough and I didn't spend much time at the beach. I did. I was literally living on the beach. My hostel - SameSun Backpackers- was one of the rare, cheaply priced accommodations which looked out on scenic Venice Beach. Honestly, it was all a bit too much to handle the first day I arrived, bleary eyed after a long day of travelling. But you can bet I basked in my glorious sighting the next day.

Truth be told, you don't really need to be in your bikini 24/7 while living in such a place. The novelty of 'holiday' quickly wears off and not in a bad way. There's nothing like taking off your shoes for a spontaneous walk in the sands and rolling up your shorts furthermore as you walk in to the waters. On one day, I walked up half an hour to Santa Monica pier, which seemed conceived from my wildest childhood imaginations. The pier is just outrageously magical. I can't tell you the last time I went on a ferris wheel. 

And when the festivities of the pier subsided, I emerged in to the crystal blue waters of the Pacific ocean and anticipated the tide crashing on to me. Still no bikini needed. Despite the weather reaching temperatures that us Brits would normally melt in, the cool sea breeze made it even more of a welcomed experience.

The nineties quirk of Venice Beach is something that really bode well with me as well. The stalls, the people, and of course, the psychics. I desperately searched for a palm reader, and after a few dodgy close calls- found someone I trusted. And boy was she spot on! Don't believe it if you must, but if you believe it, then this is a must!
