Growing up, I was obsessed with the show The O.C.. Its release came about during the most formative years of my teens and since this happened pre-Netflix and technically pre-pretty much the Internet we all know and love today, I would eagerly await episodes to air at 5pm in the afternoon on one of the Italian channels we had. I would say this TV show is probably to blame for my obsession with California and placed a road trip across the state at the top of my bucket list. Last month I was lucky enough to be able to cross that dream off my list and turn it into reality! In mid-February my boyfriend and I departed on a 3 week journey that saw us cross the state of California, but before that, we took a little detour to Nevada and Arizona to check out Las Vegas and the breath-taking Grand Canyon!
