Landing in LA

Before we touched down in South America to kick off six months of freedom on our dream holiday, it felt right to briefly swing past the land of the free, where all dreams come true to get a few pointers. Plus, two of the most excellent people we know live there so we thought we’d pay them a visit too on the way through.
