Driving around LA with dog, Harper
What do you enjoy best in the country you're in? Any recommendations for travelers going to your new country?
"I enjoy living here in the US not only because you can travel without leaving the country but the job opportunities. There will always be a job in every corner just be flexible. Good work ethic, professionalism and passion will definitely pay off."
"I currently live in West Hollywood, California. California is known for the beaches and sunny weather almost all year long. Apart from the big tourists spots like everyone knows eg Disneyland, Universal Studios and or Hollywood. LA has a lot to offer from dining, clubs to shopping. One of my most unforgettable experiences is camping. You can choose either doing it the real way or glamp with style and be in a nice cabin. Check out El Capitan Ranch. Cool place especially for beginners like me."
