Sorry it took me so long to continue this series of blog posts about our road trip. The reason for this feels a bit silly to me, but i will be honest about it anyway: L.A. is kind of my kryptonite. I wrote about this already three years ago and although my feeling changed a bit, it’s still so strong that i have a hard time putting it into words.
Our next station was Santa Cruz, known to be one of the hottest surfer spots and they didn’t promise too much. We went for an airbnb room instead of a hotel, which we both actually prefer – the stories of the locals you get to hear and the insider tips about secret locations alone totally make up for a bit less comfort.
This is the first part of one of the biggest adventures I did experience. Adobe sent me and André Josselin on a road trip down the west coast which ended in the famous Adobe MAX in San Diego. Enjoy 🙂
Day 1: Sunrise at the Golden Gate Bridge
In order to catch the sunrise over the Golden Gate Bridge we left our hotel this morning at 6.30 am. Never thought I’d be happy about a jet lag, but today I was really glad that it felt already noonish for my body . Of course the sight was completely worth it, we were so astonished by it that we even climbed a fence to follow a cliffy path to be closer to the bridge. We left when our fingers were so frozen by the wind that we couldn’t push the trigger anymore for a well deserved breakfast at “Honey Honey” (thumbs up from someone who is very picky with breakfast, but be sure to be there early otherwise the big queue will turn it more into lunch !)
Okay, so this is kinda huge for me, cuz for the first time ever i am sharing something i have photographed with you; this was shot for my friend and prospective designer Maria Stelmakh – who made these amazing dresses called “Dirndl” in Bavaria (Kind of our traditional costumes for the Oktoberfest, which i’m sure you have heard of at some point – probably right before the word “beer” ;))
So tell me what you think, I hope you like them as much as we do 🙂
