All that Glitters Not Necessarily Gold

I am trying to clear my head around my Journey so far in LA.

I had become complacent, I forgot for a moment that I was living in a different world. I let my guard down.

My idea about spending time in the very cool Venice Beach didn’t quite turn out the way I planned.

I don’t want to go into details however I found myself booked into accommodation where I didn’t feel safe.

I’m not pointing the finger or being negative, it’s imperative to check all the fine print when booking shared accommodation, which I didn’t.

Simple things like having locks on doors when travelling alone is a requirement I would recommend for solo travellers.

The good news for me though is that I have met some incredible people on my journey, who came to my rescue and helped relocate me to a more suitable area.  I am now settled and feel as though I can focus fully on the task ahead of me.

My mission is still a dream, just as I was thinking of giving up and changing my flight the universe sent me a sign.

Yes a real sign, although my trek up to the Hollywood Sign gave me a fresh incentive it was a real tangible sign that sealed the deal.

After settling into a fabulous home in West Hollywood I met Leanne.  Leanne was literally packing her bags, ordering a Lyft and set to fly to Navada to film a spectacular wedding.

When Leanne from Blooming Lovely Films discovered I lived in Bali she became excited.  She then played a beautiful film she had shot in Ubud.

The smiles, the warmth, the simplicity of the Balinese people jolted deep into my soul.  Their eyes where winking at me, urging me not to give up, daring me to continue my quest.

More time has past and more connections have come my way….stay tuned on my incredible journey in a fareaway land.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.

Blessings always
