There and back again

I spent the entire month of September travelling around the West Coast of the USA. It was completely amazing, and I am so grateful to my in-laws for giving me such an amazing opportunity. I'll never forget a single second.

We made a few stops on the way, but we mainly spent our time in San Francisco, Yosemite and Los Angeles.
We started off in San Francisco, i'd been there already but it wasn't any less awesome. We stayed again in the Castro district which is totally fun and vibrant, and feels really safe. I went thrifting, got some vegan ice cream, went to the De Young museum and the Conservatory of Flowers, it was all really cool. I love SF, and would happily go back any time.
Yosemite was possibly the best place i've seen ever. It was completely breathtaking and my jaw was constantly on the floor. I can't even describe it. I really enjoyed all the chipmunks trying to steal my food too. We stayed in a log cabin with no internet, so I got a lot of reading done (finished the Hunger Games trilogy, read a book about the history of Yosemite and read like 3/4 of the Goblet of Fire).
After that (and a few pit stops), we made it to LA. It was pretty cool, but much less exciting than I expected, it's really big and there isn't really a "centre". There's like lots of good bits all dotted around, so pretty much everywhere involved walking a few miles. I walked all the way to a vegan donut store only to find it closed. I died a little inside. I enjoyed my time there though, I got to play on some old arcade machines at the Santa Monica pier, and swim in the Pacific Ocean at the end of September which is pretty cool. Also I finally tried Veggie Grill and holy fuck, just holy fuck.

I won't natter on about it for ages, i'll just let my roll of film speak for itself. There are more photos on another film that is still in my camera, haven't quite finished it yet.

All photos taken by me on expired Fuji Superia 200 film with my Olympus OM10.
