48 Hours in Los Angeles | Layover Blog Tour

As some of you may know, I’m a lover of travelling. I try to visit at least one new place every year, and I always love visiting old places so I can revisit beloved sites or buildings or locations.

I’m going to try to convince my boyfriend to buy a telescope with me when we move so I can stargaze. Visiting the Griffith Observatory must be so much fun!
