finally - the conclusion to my california adventures.
life has been pretty busy lately, hence the lack of posts...
in my last blog post, i forgot to mention that prior to horseback riding, avery and i took a walk along "billionaires beach".
i definitely saw some homes i could see myself living in but sadly the houses are just a little outside my price range *shifty eyes*
on wednesdy (february 19th), avery and i had lunch at marmalade cafe at the malibu country mart.
mac and cheese with a side caesar salad...mmm
i must admit, i was little scared to drive as i've always heard horror stories about driving in LA and surrounding areas.
but it turns out driving in there is pretty painless and luckily, we didn't experience any traffic!
shot of the santa monica pier
we hung out at the pier, where we bumped into an old classmate from high school - the world is actually too small.
we then walked the boardwalk and shopped a little at the amazing santa monica place.
on thursday (february 20th), i had the genius idea of walking from jenn's place all the way to pepperdine's campus.
let's just say, the incline in malibu is something serious and i will never do that again!
later on that night we put on our fancies and had a delicious sushi dinner at nobu malibu.
i've heard a lot about this restaurant in the past (shoutout to the hills!) and it definitely lived up to the hype.
although, if you're not careful, you can easily end up spending a fortune.
we were so hungry/excited that we forgot to take photos of:
a) the food
we ended up going to this place called "the bungalow" in santa monica and it is easily the best establishment i've been to thus far in my life.
the environment was very chill - couches, billiard tables, backyard patios - and everyone i met was extremely nice.
all in all, i had an amazing time in california and cannot wait to go back.
especially since toronto just got dumped with 15cm of more snow.
