I'm back home now so thought it would be nice to share a few of my L.A favourites...
It actually made me smile when I realised that where ever you go in the world you often end up somewhere that reminds you of being at home, so 10 hrs away I found my own mini east end in the shape of Abbot Kinney Boulevard right by Venice beach where I enjoyed the best people watching I have ever experienced...as well as witnessing a two headed turtle.
