Do you have a favourite drive?
If there is one drive in the whole world that I love driving more than any other, it is in Los Angeles.
I have only been to LA three times in my life, once when I was a teen and remember nothing except the ferris wheel on Santa Monica Pier, and the other two times have been the past two Mays, where I was sent down for “work”. I say “work” very loosely, as I hardly worked on the trip, but all my expenses were paid, and I had quite a bit of free time to roam around. I rented a car both times, and drove myself through the maze of highways and multi-lane roads that cut through the city – alone except for the voice from the GPS.
I wouldn’t say I fell in love with the city sprawl and the dusty landscape, but I did fall in love with the lifestyle and the way LA made me feel. Ocean breezes and sun kissed cheeks and floaty dresses and the best coffee and that feeling of exploring a city, alone alone alone. That freedom.
