I wanted to check out this place for a while, just because it says “Cali” in the name. I’m always very doubtful when I come across places in Paris that claim to have some LA-cuisine. It’s just never it. Same goes for LA, if you’re looking for a baguette, then don’t. Also, the main thing in LA is probably the service. They just have excellent service, you can’t say the same for Paris.
I went there with my friend on Sunday, we were lucky enough to get seated at the bar without a reservation. It said on their website they always keep a couple of tables for people without a booking, it turned out that wasn’t true… I didn’t think it would be that full, but it was. So I thought okay, it must be good then : it wasn’t really the case unfortunately.
We were so lucky that it was so sunny that day. This little place in the middle of the mountains was cute, filled with medieval buildings, vintage shops and magic spots. We had a great time exploring it.
I just love these road trips with my best friend… I could go anywhere with her ! We’ve actually been planning a big-ass US road trip, I’m not gonna tell you more about it except that I can’t wait until we’ve filled our savings for that travel. It’s gonna be a blast, I just know it. And so it.
I was in Switzerland, visiting my bestie ❤️ since I can’t travel anywhere at the moment, let me at least share some good memories ! Here we are taking a stroll around Zürich, love this city. There’s swans in the lake, boat trips, and I love walking in the old town area, it feels quite medieval.
There’s also some quirky shops like for vintage designs, a witch store, analog photography (the coolest) etc… and some cool places to have a little snack & coffee, like Sprüngli which I go to every time I’m in town.
A little stroll around Paris, back in the fall, when I could actually walk that much.
So because I’ve been confined at home, and my only outings are walks in the woods, I don’t really have much new content to share. But the good news is, I have a ton of old pictures that I’ve never shown online, and they are pretty cool to me, because they bring a lot of good memories.
In the meantime I’m able to go back on an actual vacation, I will be editing and posting my previous trips !
It will at least cheer me up, and fill this blog with much needed content.
This trip to LA made me realize that I have the potential of turning around my life if I want to. Not saying that it’s an easy task, but that it’s a possibility, if I want it. Knowing that gives me confidence, and hopefulness.
I definitely noticed that my skills were still intact, I still know how to write, draw, sing, make a video or edit pictures the way I feel them… I thought I’d lost that.
I need to figure out a way to stay in touch with me, while away from LA, because it’s gonna be tough to feel this good and enlightened when I’m back in Paris. Life is just so much different there, and I’m a truly LA girl at heart, so that’s harsh for me.
I have new limits I didn’t know about, that I can’t cross anymore. I’m looking forward to how I’m gonna re-invent a new life for myself, because that’s what I need in order to feel better.
