When living in LA we went to Hollywood Farmers Market on the corner of Ivar and Hollywood Blvd every weekend to buy the weeks veggies and fruit. Great quality and good prices and they had this little coffee wagon where we would get our morning coffee….good times! This is the best farmers market I know of in LA. Haven’t been to all but seen a lot and this is my favorite.
Another road-trip when living in LA. Our climber friends who I wrote about here came on another visit and we went with them to Red Rock outside Las Vegas to climb. It’s so crazy beautiful out here. On our way home we went through Las Vegas. It’s such a contrast to the nature out there. Always fun to see the craziness of Las Vegas. Very fascinating but I always have the feeling of staying in the car just looking passing through.
These ladies, owner of this magic flower/plant shop Landet Järna has taken the locally produced, seasonal, pesticide-free and fair trade way we shop food and added this principle to their flower shop which is brilliant and how it should be right!. The Landet Järna sells only locally grown, organic, biodynamic and wild plants, self-picked herbal teas, as well as small envelopes with dried plants and seeds. I’m very excited about initiatives like these. I brought home their grandmothers tea and a little envelope with pumpkin seeds I will plant this lazy Saturday.
Location: Hornsbruksgatan 24, Hornstull, Stockholm
When living in NYC we did a lot of road trips and one of them to Palenville NY. So nice to get out of the city when it’s boiling hot and 40° Found the cutest little shop Circle W Market with local goods and veggies, serving whole food. The cakes were baked by a lady who was a neighbour. Love that!
When living in LA we went to the Getty Center. The view from here is spectacular and I caught a car queue from the little Getty train…an everyday part of living in LA
When living in LA we had our friends who are crazy climbers visiting. Went with them to Yosemite and did some bouldering. My first time climbing and how fun it was. It is so beautiful in Yosemite. Forgot the tent so slept outside on the crash-pads almost next to the sign, bear warning….?! Yep that’s how we role.
When we were living in LA we took a trip to San Francisco for my birthday…..what a looker this city is. Would love to come back and spend more time here. This was during my 2 years as vegan hence the vegan hotdog place. Those hotdogs from Underdog were so good we had to order another round. We took highway 1 from LA and it’s such a scenic route, takes way longer but can recommend it. Here are a few favorit spots of mine:
when living i williamsburg we went to radegast quit a lot of times. it’s this biergarten and they always have fun live bands. they serve bratwurst with sauerkraut and their selection of beers are insane. really really enjoy sitting by the communal tables. they have this roof they can open, pretty darn lovely when it’s 40° in the city during summer.
