Forget about French being the most romantic language in the world. To me it's always been Italian. It squeezes my heart more than any other language.

[Palm Springs, CA]

My husband's grandma lives south of Los Angeles. We usually fly to LAX but this time we decided to try flying to Palm Springs instead. Loved it! We will never fly to LAX again! LAX is nuts! Palm Springs airport was small and everything was done so fast - luggage, car rental and drop off... We hadn't planned to spend much time in Palm Springs but had a few hours there before our flight home. We realized we will need to spend lots more time there. Lovely place!

These hills along the drive there reminded me of southern Alberta.

So many design shops! Must go back and explore the rest of them.

Bye, bye Cali! See you next time.

[Venice Beach, California]

Some more photos from our Christmas 2015 vacation in California. On this day, we rented bikes and biked along Venice Beach.

I must say that I didn't feel 100% safe while there. The vibe is somewhat scary. Homeless people once again right there. Drug culture. People swearing loudly. Etc.

Checked out the canal area as well.
