Ever since graduating this past May, I have been doing a deep dive on where I want to be spending my time for the next few years. The only move I’ve ever done was moving from a small rural town in Pennsylvania to a large suburban city in Orange County, California. Since then, I’ve considered what it would be like living in an actual big city, like Manhattan, NY or Washington, DC. I decided to do a quick little pit stop at both cities during my time on the East Coast after traveling to Europe and spent a full weekend in DC (trying to be) like a local with Kimpton Hotels.

Over the past ten days, I had the amazing privilege to travel to Europe for what I considered my post-graduation summer trip, although evidently very delayed! I started my vacation with a few days in Stockholm, Sweden, followed by a flight to Amsterdam, Netherlands and a final quick stop in Hamburg, Germany.
Fortunately, I had quite a few recommendations from personal friends, social following, and travel blogs on specific places to see in each city, so I thought I would compound my own little list to share on my recommendations after my ten day visit!

After last minute planning to travel back home to the East Coast for ten days, I decided it’d be a great opportunity to explore nearby cities while being home in Pennsylvania, especially DC, since I’ve been very curious about exploring the city even more ever since graduating and considering new locations for the future.

A little less than two weeks ago, I finally decided I was going to commit to going on my first solo trip ever to the city I’ve been dying to visit–Portland, Oregon. The truth about why I booked my plans so late in the game is because I simply kept waiting to feel “ready” to book, while I would talk for months how I was going to do it. And I’ll be honest, I am NOT the type of person that says one thing and does another. I like to stay true to my word or better yet, walk the talk. So truthfully, I felt like a fraud for saying I was going to travel to xyz in the Fall but never committed to it. Until two weeks before my trip.

For the past few weeks or so, I for some reason started to feel a lack of passion for Southern California. It was to the point that I called my best friend and told him I was considering moving back to the East Coast and he was in shock. That’s mainly because all I ever wanted was to move and live in California and here I am (ask my best friends from middle school, I wrote it in someone’s yearbook lol), living all fine and dandy, yet, somehow lost the love for it. And I just couldn’t put my finger on why. Continue reading “Finding My Love for California”
