{Cali Day One}

Woke up at 5am.
My parents drove us to the airport.
And we were off for such an amazing adventure.

The flight was so smooth.
We left at 7:30 and got to LAX at 8:45 
which is weird because it's a 3 hour flight...thank you time change.

Once we landed we hopped onto our bus and headed to Santa Monica.
It's always amazing to me how simple it is to travel via public transport.

Once we were all settled we headed out towards Santa Monica Beach.
It's literally down the street from where we're staying and it's AMAZING!!!
We had such a blast today just exploring around the town.

We walked down the beach and then sat in the sand for a while just taking it all in..
and by all i mean the sun...my legs look like lobsters...
Worth it...but painful...

I'm dying over the food here.

We just walked down the main street and found this little cafe for lunch.
I had pasta and Tom had tuna, and it was devine...like lick your plate clean good!!!

For dinner we decided to hit up the same area and we found this burger place called The Counter.
It was like Which Wich but for Burgers...and just better than Which Wich overall ;)
  We made some seriously excellent food choices today which makes me excited 
about what's in store for us tomorrow when we go deeper into LA.

 So it's been an excellent first day.
I can't wait to share more of our adventures tomorrow!! :)
