Hey friends and Happy Midsummer from the states!! 🌺 Today we went to Griffith Observatory to see the view over L.A and the Hollywood sign but also to go in the building and see the observatory. After that we started our hike up to the Hollywood sign and also behind it. It was hot, hard but it was all worth it!!! We did a 16 km hike and we both got so tired after so we rescheduled our plans and decided to just get some food from the grocery store and lay in bed - Pretty good decision since both of our bodies got sore afterwards haha. We have just been relaxing in bed after a shower and a movie and now we are getting ready for the bed! More stuff to see and do tomorrow so stay tuned guys!

Happy that I did this with bestie, something I dreamed about to do since I was younger! 🎒👟🗻

WE DID IT!!

19/6-20/6 - We drove from SF international airport and saw the beautiful nature along California State Route 1 and U.S route 101. We did a few photo stops and spent the night in Santa Maria and the day after we stopped by in Santa Barbara and relaxed at the beach before we drove down to L.A for our third stop. To drive was something incredible...Like the movies but even better!! We passed a lot of cute towns, vineyards, coves and lots of cool mountains. Something you have to see with your own eyes!

Dinner break in Santa Maria before we were checking in at our Motel called Motel 6 , a decent motel and pretty cheap, something I recommend to stay at when it' located next to the highways.

Brunch stop in Santa Maria before we drove down to Santa Barbara

We took a walk at Stearns Wharf @ West Beach in Santa Barbara, we didn't have time to explore the city that much, but we got to hang out at the beach for a while, stroll around and just get a nice taste of Cali. A place I could definitely go back to and explore more!!

Hey guys - We had a fantastic time ni SF. The weather was beautiful and likewise the city, a place I would definitely go back and visit again. Since we both barely got any sleep our first day because of the time difference and our travel we ended up sleeping from dinner time till the day after, something we really needed!! Our first real day exploring the city was Saturday - We walked around in the city, went to the harbor and walked to Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street, some cute parks and last but not least The Golden Gate Bridge. After that we did a take out and had some sushi and vine at the hotel 🌊 🌁 ☀️

1 year & 9 months as an au pair

Today is my last day as an ''au pair'' - 1 year and 9 months since I moved to the states, how crazy is that? It feels like I just celebrated a year here and now my journey is starting to get to its end and I am so proud of myself, that I did this... packed my life kind of and moved thousands of miles from home. Took huge steps from my comfort zone, been growing so much as a person, got more happy with life and started to love myself more, I got friends for life and likewise a family. The thought of not been taking this chance to become an au pair and move to the states makes my stomach hurt a little. I know I would not been the same person if I just stayed at home. I needed this. I am happier, stronger, more mature and independent. Words can not explain how fortunate I am. I DID IT!

Now I am ready for a new chapter in life after almost 2 years here, I am ready to take everything I've learned here through sad and happy days with me back home, ready to live my life in Sweden and start with something new. On Thursday I am meeting up my best friend from Sweden and then we are going Friday morning to the West Coast for almost 3 weeks traveling - I am sooo excited!! After that I will be back on the East Coast for almost a week, hangout with some friends and my host family before I am moving back to Sweden! It's a bittersweet feeling, but I am ready - To be reunited with family and friends, move on and do something else. I know I will have an extra family for life which means the world to me - so to say good bye will rather be a see you later even though it will hurt! ♡

Here we go and cheers to new adventures!! XX
