the californication diary::: los angeles.

11 Jul

where do you start when you’ve travelled across the ocean to be with people you only met once in your life before but you feel like you’ve known them forever?

where do you start when you saw the most beautiful palm trees, the most incredible sunsets?

where do you start when you saw a hummingbird for the first time and it almost made you cry?

where do you start when you saw the hollywood sign for the first time and it brought tears to your eyes?

where do you start when you feel like you want to go back to a place you would’ve never imagined to love?

where do you start when you feel like you learned things about yourself that only travelling can teach you?

where do you start when you feel like you met your future husband on this journey, an incredibly amazing person who has no clue that you think, he’s the one for you?

where do you start?

i took a week now to come back, try do adjust, get over my (belated jetlag), reconnect with my friends (that was the easiest part). and now i am sitting here and wondering about where to start.

so i guess, i start with the beginning of my trip. i will try to focus on the important stuff and leave everything else out.

let me know if there’s any specific things you want me to focus on.

so here it starts

the evening before:::: insomnia!!!



i took of two weeks ago on a monday. excited and happy. wearing my ying yang leggings because they are comfy for a long flight and because, honestly, what else should you wear when you start your journey towards hippie central?

my plane took of over two hours, so i had to wait…


first good omen: the plane was fully booked except for the seat next to me. YES! what a treat! never had such a relaxed 12 hour plane ride before.

watched HITCHCOCK. made me laugh and cry. very impressed. great movie.


my lovely lovely anya picked me up from the airport with an ice cold water and a priceless smile on her lips.


i had to leave philippe brenninkmeyer (hot hot hot!) and patrick nuo (not hot AT ALL! in fact, he seems to be a huge douchebag) who were on the same flight behind and started driving towards HOLLYWOOD!

when we drove down the freeway i saw the hollywood sign for the first time in real life and almost caused a car accident because i started screaming. at that time i didn’t know yet that my home for the next two weeks would be right UNDERNEATH this beautiful landmark and that i could inhale it every day.


i spent the rest of the day not believing how beautiful the house and my room for the next two weeks are, sipping the champagne i brought with anya, having dinner at a sushi place and trying to scare away the jetlag with some cocktails and meeting dalton, anya’s roommate and bestie.




more to come. xxx
