Jeg havde en meget interessant samtale med en af mine veninder fredag eftermiddag. Hun havde lige været på weekend tur i Amsterdam og sagde til mig “kender du det når man besøger et sted og med det samme får man en følelse af at man bare kunne leve der?” Det kender jeg bestemt. Det er ikke mange steder i verden man får det sådan med, ihvertfald ikke mig. Jeg mener, jo jeg synes da det er skønt at besøge Paris og jeg holder da meget af Milano, og når jeg f.eks. tager hjem til Silkeborg hvor jeg voksede op er det fantastisk fordi jeg elsker min familie men der er ingen af de steder der nogensinde har givet mig følelsen af at høre til som sådan. Det var lige indtil jeg mødte verdens berømte Los Angeles. Det var kærlighed ved første blik, jeg besøgte L.A første gang da jeg var 16 og det er det sted jeg har besøgt aller mest siden. Det får mig til at føle mig større, bedre, roligere, fri, som om jeg ikke kan gå i stykker og mange andre ting men det får mig også til at føle mig langt væk hjemmefra. Hvorfor kunne det ikke have været New York jeg var forelsket i?! Det er meget tættere på. Jeg bliver altid lidt blue når jeg kommer hjem fra L.A. Jeg græder endda når vi letter – hver eneste gang. Some things never change!

english: I had a very interesting conversation with one of my friends this friday afternoon. She had just visited Amsterdam on a weekend getaway and she said to me “you know when you really just get that feeling about a city, like you could really just be you there?”. I know exactly what thats like. It’s not many places in the world one feels that way about, not me at least. I mean sure I think Milan is wonderful and I love to visit Paris, and going home to Silkeborg where I grew up is fantastic because I love my family but non of those places has ever given me that sense of “belonging”. Until I met the famous Los Angeles. It was love at first sight, I visited the first time when I was 16 and it’s probably the place I have traveled to the most since then. It makes me feel, bigger, better, calmer, free, unbreakable and many more things but it also makes me feel far away from home. Why couldn’t it have been New York I fell in love with?! It’s so much closer. The L.A blues always come over me when I get home, I even cry on the plane as it takes of – every single time. Some things never change!

At flyve er en ting jeg holder meget af. Lige fra at booke turen og pakke kufferten til at stå i lufthavnen og sidde i flyet. Det er alt sammen en del af oplevelsen når man rejser, det er ikke kun destinationen. Når man rejser lige så meget som mig prøver man alle mulige forskellige airlines og hver gang jeg skal prøve en ny en glæder jeg mig! Der er jo så mange! Denne gang havde vi fornøjelsen af at flyve med det nye WOW air til Los Angeles, et selskab jeg endnu ikke havde haft fornøjelsen af at flyve med. Jeg har dog længe gerne ville da jeg er helt besat af deres pink fly! De er selv super dygtige på sociale medier og har en sej instagram profil som gjorde jeg slet ikke kunne vente med at flyve med dem. WOW air er et islandsk lavprisselskab som specialisere sig i at flyve de lange ture til super billige priser. New York fra 1.985 kr, Boston fra 999 kr, San Fransisco fra 1.099 kr – I mean what? Jeg tager hatten af for at nogen har gjort det til sin vision at alle skal kunne være ægte globetrottere uden at smadre sin opsparing, det super god stil! Der er ikke TV skærme i sæderne på nogen af WOW’s fly men opladnings muligheder til både computer, ipad og telefon på hele rejsen! Og så er der god benplads. Jeg har ihvertfald et par steder på kloden jeg snart kan få krydset af når det er så billigt at komme dertil! TAK til WOW air for at gøre det muligt for os at komme til L.A! Det var en fornøjelse.

english: To fly is something I sincerely enjoy. From booking the trip and packing a suitcase to be in the airport and actually be in the plane. It’s all apart of the experience when traveling, it’s not just the destination. When you travel as much as I do you get to try tons of different airlines and everything I get to try one I haven’t tried before, I am so excited! There are so many! This time I had the pleasure of flying with the new airline, WOW air, to Los Angeles. An airline I had yet not had the pleasure of flying with. I have wanted to for a while though as I am just obsessed with their pink airplanes! Also they are super skilled at social media so I couldn’t wait to fly with them after seeing their profile on instagram. WOW air is an Icelandic low fare airline who specializes in flying the long routes for less money. New York from 1.985 kr, Boston from 999 kr, San Fransisco from 1.099 kr – I mean what? I applaud companies who makes it easier for people to live out their travel dreams without wrecking their wallets. There are no TV’s on the plane but plenty of charging stations for computer, iPad and iPhone for the whole trip! And good legroom! I have some places I now see possible to get crossed of my travel bucket list! Thank you WOW air for making it possible for us to fly yo L.A this easter! It was a pleasure!

2 timer nord for Los Angeles ligger smukke Santa Barbara. Jeg havde endnu ikke selv været der men mine forældre har og sagde at jeg ville elske den lille spansk inspirerede by så, afsted med mig. Turen derop var skøn, svingende og der var smuk udsigt langt hen af vejen. Santa Barbara var ren og pæn med lave huse og en hyggelig shopping gade. Der var idyllisk og det var lige hvad jeg havde brug for. Et pusterum. Bevares, L.A er fantastisk, men den er også halv larmende, beskidt og fyldt med biler. Santa Barbara var noget helt andet. Midt i byen fandt vi denne fuldstændig betagende trappe. Jeg måtte bare få taget billeder på den, også selvom den var i fuld sol. Sådan noget kraftigt lys kan stadigvæk være lidt svært for mig at styre men det lykkedes heldigvis. Ellers skulle jeg have ventet hele dagen på at den kom i skygge for skydes, det skulle den.

english: 2 hours north of Los Angles lies the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. I hadn’t been there yet but my parents have and they said I would absolutely love it so, away I went. The ride up there was gorgeous as expected. The roads were curvy and the view was spectacular most of the way. Santa Barbara was beautiful, clean and heavily influenced by spanish culture. Yum! It was just what I needed, a breather. I mean, L.A is amazing no doubt but it’s also noisy, dirty and filled with cars. Santa Barbara is just the opposite. In the city center we found this beyond amazing set of stairs. I just HAD to get my photos taken on these steps even though the sun was coming down hard. I have to admit I still have trouble sometimes controlling harsh light like this but I managed. Luckily, otherwise we would have had to wait all day for the sun to move because I had to shoot on these stairs!

Første stop, is – er jeg den eneste? Min super checkede og mega seje assistent Isabella havde set de her sorte valfer på instagram og befalet at jeg skulle tage derhen når jeg kom til L.A. For pokker hvor var det den lange køre tur indtil downtown værd! På hjørnet af snavset og støjende lå dette lille ternede drømmeland. Familie ejet is butik med is til både de lactose intolerente og veganerne. Oh og de der sorte vafler, SÅ seje! Jeg prøvede deres almond charcoal med oreo stykker på, det var fantastisk og så er stedet super instagram venligt. Du burde seriøst overveje at svinge forbi denne lille perle hvis du befinder dig i Los Angeles.

english: First stop, ice cream – am I right? My über cool and upbeat assistant Isabella had seen these black cones all over instagram and told me I had to go check it out when I touched down in L.A. My goodness was it worth the drive into downtown. On the corner of noisy and loud was this little checked dream of a place. Family owned ice cream shop with both lactose free and vegan friendly options to choose from. And those pitch black super cool cones, SO awesome! I tried the almond charcoal with oreo bits on top, it was amazing – and such a instagram friendly place. In love! You absolutely must swing by if you are in Los Angeles.

Det er vidunderligt at være tilbage, solen bager, palmerne svajer og det hele ligner på en måde sig selv. Tænk hvor heldige vi er at leve i en tid hvor det er så nemt at rejse så langt. I dag har vi vandret i Beverly Hills og hængt ud på Rodeo Drive! Håber alt er dejligt hjemme i DK!

english: It’s wonderful being back, the sun is shining, the palm trees are dancing and somehow everything looks the same. Can’t believe how lucky we are to live in a time where it’s so easy to travel so far. Today, all we did was walk around Beverly Hills and hang out on Rodeo Drive. I hope all is well at home!

En kaffe og en croissant kan gøre meget. Det lykkedes mig at lokke Laura med ud i lufthavnen på en lørdag morgen, hvilket er lidt urimeligt. Særligt fordi hun slet ikke skulle med ud og flyve, hun skulle bare tage billeder af Sebastian og jeg. Se dét er ægte venskab. Ville nu ønske hun også skulle med! MEN – i dag er det Sebastians fødselsdag og det fejre vi lige med en 16 timers rejse, hurraaa!! Vi spiser sgu en Othello i flyveren, mindre kan ikke gøre det. Er de forresten ikke bare alt for fede de her kufferter?! Jeg er vild med dem, de giver mig lidt lyst til at købe en hat med en solsikke i, måske jeg finder en i LA. I må have en fantastisk lørdag – i høre fra mig igen når jeg er kommet på plads i dejlige USA. Husk i kan følge med på snappen @mariajernov. God weekend!

english: A cup of coffee and a croissant can work wonders. I succeeded in luring Laura out of bed on a Saturday morning so she could take pictures of me and Sebastian before boarding. Even though she wasn’t even going anywhere herself. See that is friendship. Wish she was going to LA too! BUT – today, is Sebastians birthday and we are celebrating by taking a 16 hour trip – hurraa! We will eat a big cake on the plane, less won’t do it! Btw – what do you think of the luggage? I can’t get enough of it, I think they are soooo cool! They kinda get me in the mood to buy a straw hat with a sunflower in it, maybe I will find one in LA. Have one amazing Saturday and I will check back with you when I have settled in. You can follow my journey on snapchat @mariajernov. Have a happy weekend!

Juhu! Endelig er jeg (næsten) pakket og klar til at komme afsted. Los Angles, nu kommer jeg hjem!

english: Yes! Finally (almost) packed and ready to roll. Los Angeles, I am coming home baby! It quite warm at the moment in L.A so I am very excited about wearing shorts, skirts, dresses and short sleeve anything. The sunscreen is packed, polaroid camera – check, a good hat, sandals, sunnies and so on and so on. Oh and my luggage is yellow as the sun this time! Just wait till you see, they are awesome. We are flying with WOW air tomorrow, it will be my first time boarding one of those pink airplanes and I can’t wait. If you don’t know them yet check out their instagram @wowair. Seriously pink airplanes?! DREAM! Their prices to go from Copenhagen to Los Angeles are absolutely amazing and starting at only 1.099 kr! Can you believe it? I look forward to sharing my experience on the pink ride with you soon. Stay tuned!
