Food in Los Angeles: Joan’s on Third

After walking around 3rd street and shopping a little too much (like those Keds at Opening Ceremony, or just too many of those cute looking products at Benefit, that all promise great help) we took a break at Joan’s on Third, skipping on the heavy sweet treats at Magnolia’s across the street, and instead went for salad, an artichoke and an egg salad sandwich in this bustling deli.

Food in Venice: Gjelina

We spent the morning of the second day how we ended our first day, cycling around. This time along the Pacific Ocean down to Venice Beach, which was nicely deserted around this time of day. After watching dolphins (!), pelicans and surfers, we decided to have lunch on Abbot Kinney Blvd at Gjelina, taking advice from my dear Julia.

On Tour: Biking in Santa Monica

On our first day we decided to cycle through Santa Monica, an approach that might sound rather weird in a that is basically depending on car rides. Although many roads nowadays got bike lanes, one rarely sees people biking to work / yoga class / the vegan lunch place, but it’s such a nice thing to do and I can only recommend it.
