On the way – we arrive to our second station of our city-hop trip in North America – Los Angeles. However, the more attractive things about the journey weren’t the destinations themselves but the way between each city. A drive from San Francisco down to L.A. on California highway One, which was something we were really looking forward to during the trip since I’ve been told a thousand times from some of my American friends is something I have to try when I’m travelling in west coast U.S.California Highway 1 – driving along the scenic highway was seriously the main reason why my friend Ying was so keen to join me on this trip to the U.S. as she’s such an experienced and skilled driver and it was such an amazingly beautiful drive which I will never forget. There are few great road trips that can light up your wanderlust-world and enable one to deeply breathe the feeling of freedom into your soul as your spirit raptures, and California Highway 1, the pacific coast highway is absolutely one of them. Envision it: two great girlfriends driving down the abandoned pacific highway in a bright sunny day, the radio is playing “Hotel California”, and they’re having a long girl’s talk after three years being apart; Doesn’t this scene just make you drunk? By its intoxicating lovely magic? Yes! Yes! I am delighted to show off that I experienced all of it, the surreal skedaddle!Floral Print Dress – bright sunlight, Pacific Ocean, mountains and California, what else I should wear except SOMETHING FLORAL? I can think of no other! A polish floral print dress was my only option for the beautiful drive! I got it in a Korean fashion store; and here I have to point out that I’m rather impressed by the Korean-style fashion design in recent years. From the texture of the clothes they choose to the cutting of the design, which REALLY infuses a new trend into the fashion industry around the world!Los Angeles – scintillated my floral mood up to the Griffith Observatory to sashay the L.A. skyline and jaunt the Hollywood sign, in which atmosphere I fell asleep and started musing myself to be a part of the world’s entertainment heartland – talking to Angelia Jolie over the phone while dating with Brad Pitt, or vise versa, dating with Julie and something with Pitt! Why not! Oh dear, I know I’m crazy, but it’s good to be crazy dreaming sometimes!I’m sitting on the crag, singing a song; chasseing with Los Angeles skyline, and gazing upon downtown L.A. which from here is just such tiny mote calm under my feet; does this scene titillate your day and put a twinkle in your eye? Hehe! My travelogue about this Hollywood city will be coming up soon, so just keep calm and fly with me.
