In the midst of a harsh winter in Jersey I landed in beautiful, sunny California. Getting an early taste of what my summer would feel like spoiled me. From the beautiful caves in El Matador to the marvelous streets of Hollywood, my world was opened to something new. Although I had trouble trying to be a tourist, I stood there amazed at everything I experienced. Life was good, life is good. My travels though, made me realize that I still have a lot more life to experience.... and I am patiently awaiting for my time to take off.
