WHY THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE CITY OF ANGELS HAVE SO MUCH TO OFFER - UNDERRATED SPOTS OUTSIDE LA


Los Angeles, a city that attracts many travellers and holiday-goers alike. Not only is it a wonderful destination, but to put it bluntly, it's just so cool? Cities such as New York always have always had their own character and style, but Los Angeles has always been the cooler cousin. From Hollywood to Beverly Hills. From Santa Monica to Venice Beach, everything about Los Angeles screams trendy, and geographically Southern California is pretty beautiful. However, enough about all of the things that are on everyone's bucket lists. Although your 'typical' LA spots are must-sees and raise excitement in you, there are also many wonderful places just outside the city that often get no attention. Furthermore, even your 'typical' destinations have small 'hidden gems' nestled in them, but sometimes we just do not make the effort to explore further. So here is my little list of places you should stop by if you're ever in the City of Angels.

WHY YOU SHOULD START TRAVELLING 'LOCALLY'


One of the thrills that many people gain from travelling, is discovery and an unfamiliar environment. However, it's not that alone that helps people enjoy it, but nice and pleasant places too fill you with happiness. For instance, we all love the idea of strolling through picturesque streets in various places throughout the world and gazing at beautiful scenes of nature. Popping into local cafes, travelling via public transport you're not used to using, and simply wandering. To get this amazing experience, we have to pay large sums of money to get and stay in these places. But, what if I told you lots of lovely places may be on your doorstep? Am I saying that going to local places is better than going abroad? Most of the time of course not! But when money or time is limited, visiting places nearer to your home may actually help curb feelings of wanderlust and you may discover new things.

CHIA NATURALLY HEALTHY HITCHIN - A LOCAL HIDDEN GEM


So the other day I waltzed into Hitchin, a local market town just a few miles away from where I live. The reason? To spend time with one of my closest friends but...with a change of scenery. Although she was used to going to Hitchin, I wasn't, so it was quite exciting for myself! I wrote a blog post here all about travelling locally and how it can help curb feelings of wanderlust. One thing that we did in Hitchin was eating at Chia. It's full name being 'Chia: Naturally Healthy'. It was a cafe situated close to Hitchin's main square and near the beautiful St Mary's church. We made it a brunch since we wanted our lay-in but didn't want to hang around until lunchtime to eat, and the rest is history.
