Greetings from the west coast! I've been out in California for the past few days and have been LOVING it. I love the vibe over here and how easy it is to find a beach (#beachbum). I've been exploring different cities in the southern part of the state and have conquered a few fears along the way. These fears were traveling alone and going on a boat - I guess my fear was mainly getting sea sick. I actually am enjoying traveling alone because I can literally do whatever I want (going to bed at 8pm because I cannot get used to the time difference). My boat trip was super fun and I saw a few whales. I tried to speak whale like Dory in Finding Nemo but it didn't work.
I've really enjoyed my time exploring and am happy that food and exercise no longer control my every move.
