When we arrived at the LACMA to shoot at the famous lantern location (as seen on my Instagram here), it somehow just didn’t feel right for my blog. For one, because it has been done a trillion times before, and second because the light was basically shit. We were not “feeling” it at all. So on our way back to the car (we actually visited the museum they day after, don’t worry), we came across this side street with beautiful jacaranda trees (remember my post from last December?) and the all American school busses. Winning! Especially with the white dress that I was sporting that day. The grey weather all throughout the week made us choose different locations than we usually opt for in L.A. Which might just be a good thing, it requires more creativity I guess. Sunlight just makes everything so much more fun, don’t you agree? Anyway, with that being said, I do look back on an awesome time in the States once again. My hands are itching, I can’t wait to go back. My friend Noor sent me this quote recently, and I couldn’t agree more. This totally applies to my view on life:

“We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. When we get home, home is still the same, but something in our minds has changed, an that changes everything.”

I was discussing it last night with Ralph actually, and we came to the conclusion that this specific country is addictive to us. Each and every time I return from a trip I get that same feeling. Almost as if I’m leaving “home”. Strange right? But then again, I guess home doesn’t necessarily mean the country you were born in. I see it around me all the time. Like my blogger bestie Zanita, who moved to Sweden last year calling this “home” right now. Or my sister’s boyfriend who moved all the way from Mexico to spend his life with her, here, in The Netherlands. Temporary or not, I think it’s a good thing to move around and travel loads. It fits my personality, it fits my life. It might just be time to take that next big step finally. Who knows, someday…
