When I lived in San Diego, I would sometimes venture up to Los Angeles. Of course, it was always an adventure due to the traffic - no matter if we left late in the evening or early on a Sunday morning. In turn, my view of LA was that of a city so spread out that you needed a car and almost needed to commit to a neighborhood and stay there.
Recently, I got to spend some time in Beverly Hills. This time, I did not have a car and decided I would only Uber when needed to. This meant I was walking to get my morning coffee or walking to meetings or whenever time would allow me to walk to my destination.
The beauty of this was the ability to soak in a part of LA that I may had otherwise quickly by-passed. My favorite areas in LA are those by the ocean, including Santa Monica and Malibu.
Of course, walking also allowed me to soak in my surroundings, and it probably helped that when I was there, they were having unusually "cold" weather and was after a recent rain spell. That meant I had great weather and was was surrounded by lush green landscape.
In light of this trip, I wanted to share some highlights:
Aharon Coffee - this coffee house was started by Aharon Vaknin who is passionate about coffee, and it shows as soon as you meet him. They roast their beans in-house, and he advised I try a Hazelnut Iced Latte - it was delicious! They also roast their own hazelnuts, which they use for the lattes, and they make their own almond/hazelnut milk. Yum!
Momed - this restaurant is a must, as it seems to satisfy all palettes. To start, get the Momed Plate and be sure to include the avocado hummus. You can't go wrong with the salads or wraps and save room for dessert.
Take a Walk - from either of the above destinations, take a stroll down Rodeo Drive or Wilshire Blvd.. Take in the sites of the shops and get your Pretty Woman moment on. And, take a peek inside of the amazing hotels in the area, including The Beverly Hills Hotel.
Enjoy the walk, the palm trees, the homes and a different take on LA.
P.S. While enjoying your next adventure, grab your favorite Adea Modal Tee and a pair of jeans and head out on the town. And, in case you are still in need of some travel inspiration, here's a look at Palm Beach.

I’ve never been able to pull it off BUT I’ve always wanted to go to Australia – everything I’ve heard about it fascinates me. That said I often watch those “survival” TV shows where a person takes a wrong turn in a desert, forest, mountain or the outback and is lost for days on end. Then an “outdoor survivalist” comes on and says, “If only they had done thus-and-so – they would have had food and water.”
Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.
In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
