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.
L.A. has been my dream city for more than ten years now and everything i want to write about why I feel like that sounds so incredibly melodramatic and trashy, so i will make it short: It’s just where my heart feels home more than anywhere else. And taking the Highway 101 this time to reach the city just caused some kind of overload of this emotion inside me – simply because it’s one of the most beautiful pieces of this world I’ve ever seen. I think it took three times as long as usually for us to arrive in L.A. because we had to stop so many times to capture the astonishing landscape around us. This county has it all and nothing i could ever write would be enough to describe it. I am repeating myself over and over: I would trade my soul to live here.
And this time i finally got it inked into my skin <3
