My dear ones, I’m so excited! It’s that time again when I prepare to pack my bikinis, shorts, sunglasses and my camera. I’m planning my next trip and the first stop will be Los Angeles. Even though I’ve already been to California a few times, there are still so many places I haven’t seen and I don’t know. But that is not the only reason why I return to LA every year. There are so many reasons and today I want to show you my 10 favorite things todo when in California.

1. Walk, skate or ride a bike on the boardwalk from Santa Monica to Venice Beach.

I really can’t wait to be back in the sunshine state, because there is so much more to see and to do. I could have listed a lot more things I’ve already experienced, but I wanted to concentrate on 10. I totally want to do all of it again, but there are some other things waiting for me on my California bucket list. These are the 10 things for the next time:

1. All the photos make me totally want to go to Yosemite National Park.
