Hi there! Today is the first day after spring break, but my thoughts are wandering back to the fun-filled time I had this past week. Five fellow BHGAPers and I decided to go on a road trip to Los Angeles, Death Valley, and Las Vegas.
On a chilly Saturday, we all woke up early for a five-hour drive to LA. Fortunately, the traffic wasn’t too bad, and we arrived hungrily in sunny California in the afternoon. Here are some photos from our three days in LA. We visited Santa Monica Beach, LACMA, Griffith Observatory, Disneyland, and UCLA (but pssst we think the UC Berkeley campus is much more beautiful).
Next, we headed to Death Valley to chase the stars and catch the sunrise. One of the most memorable moments was sitting by the campfire and enjoying each other’s company. We bonded over instant ramen and meaningful talks 🙂
Finally, we made our way to Las Vegas. I was incredibly excited to finally experience the vibrant life of this crazy city. And yes, I did go to the casino and lost 5 dollars total after playing two rounds of Russian roulette and Blackjack. Some of my friends, however, were less fortunate…
I had a memorable spring break trip with the best people I can ever imagine. Grateful for a week off to explore what California and Nevada have to offer. Thanks so much for reading. I shall see you soon!
