Solo Trip to Ojai

Solo Trip to Ojai

I’ve been craving an Ojai getaway for a while now. It’s been too long since my last viz to this magical California town, so I drove up recently for a lil overnight solo trip. Only 90 minutes northwest of Los Angeles but so different in terms of vibe - slower paced with a beautiful artistic small town feel. I always feel relaxed and happy in Ojai and it’s also the perf getaway destination for solo travelers, which I can’t recommend enough! When you take a trip by yourself you get to do, see, and eat whatever you want, whenever you want. I’ve found that I have more conversations with the locals when I’m by myself, and I just love exploring a town at my own pace. I observe more and learn more, about the town and about myself. My last solo trip was in the beginning of the year to Los Alamos, so I have definitely been overdue. When Eddie told me he’d have to work the weekend I had planned, I knew this would be the perf opportunity!

The Most Instagramable Shops in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Just got back from a short trip to New York for a friend's wedding! Every time I visit my hometown in the Hudson Valley, I try to also visit NYC as it's only an hour and a half drive. Brooklyn is my fave place in the city, so much charm and magic. I just love the vibe and how everything is so walkable - I walked from my Airbnb to each of these shops in just a few hours. Even though I froze my butt off, it was actually v nice to be able to leave the house without having to jump in a car to get to where I needed to go. Keep scrolling for some of the adorbs places I visited while staying in Williamsburg!
