Nom nom - 52 project - Week 38

When I was growing up, our family would travel to Mexico at least once a year to visit our relatives. Other than getting to see family, I would get excited for three things. An ice cream parlor that was no joke, my Grandmas next door neighbor.  2cnd was a place called Sambores, they made incredible Enchiladas . Third and probably my favorite, the fruit carts. Fruit doused with chile and lime juice. AMAZING. They just didn't have these in my neighborhoods here in the U.S (still dont).  But they are around LA county.
The other day I was on a shoot with Sarah and I saw one. I mentioned how much I loved them growing up and she replied she had never noticed or tried one. "WHAT!?"  I pulled an immediate U-TURN, ordered two up and created one new fan!

She finished every last bite. 


I'm coming to visit! 52 Project - Week 2

Cali Visit  This past weekend, my friend Mal flew in from Canada. Mal and I met 2 years ago in Budapest, Hungary, on a day walking tour through the city. The next day and a half we did what most travelers do, we followed it up with more sights, a few bars, randomness and getting to know each other. We swapped emails then we were off on our separate ways to new cities and adventures. We stayed in touch afterwards and a few weeks ago I received an email that said,"Hey, Im coming to visit!" "Sweet! Finally! " Mal brought her friend Krystle with her and I tried showing them a fun OC / SoCal experience. Newport, La, HB, Hollywood, Knotts Scary Farm, Venice, Rainbows, Triangle square, Roscoes, Laguna, San Clemente, a hike, party night, party day, paddle boarding and even some surfing lessons. They met several of my amazing friends and genuinely had an amazing time (i hope).

Along with awesome memories, my travels have blessed me with so many amazing friends across this beautiful world from different cultures, religions, and ages. We all found common ground to build long and lasting relationships. Next year, I’ll be traveling to France, to go to a wedding of people I met in London. I love the randomness of it all. There is so much out there if you choose to seek it. Think about how much you limit your life by only experiencing what may be in a 100 miles radius. Your future best friend, wife or husband may be out there.

Appreciate the world beyond your doorstep.
