Loving life in LA

Greetings from sunny California!

Los Angeles is an incredible city, and it is such a privilege to get to live and work here. I am doing my practical trainings for the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and thus working for the Consulate General of Finland in Los Angeles. I work with passports, residence permits and Schengen visas, and it has been super interesting. Working for the Ministry is just as interesting and great as I always thought it would be, and I am actually looking forward to going to work every day, as funny as that sounds.

My spare time has, unsurprisingly, been even cooler than work. I adore California climate (hot and sunny), and even more the relaxed and fun LA lifestyle. US has been a great country to live in, and LA is just such a special city. Going out in Hollywood, hiking in Malibu, tanning in Santa Monica,  watching LA Galaxy games in StubHub Center, chilling on Venice Beach, dining in Brentwood – it is just incredible my weeks consist of cool things like these, and that I get to do them on a daily basis. It seems unreal!

I have truly enjoyed California and the LA life. People are so nice, and there is always something to do or somewhere to go. I also have some holidays, and get to spend them travelling. I am so looking forward to seeing New York, Chicago, Las Vegas and Grand Canyon, seeing how this is my first time in the States.

All in all it’s been a blast, and I’ve just fallen it love with LA. It is definitely a city I want to move back to at some point in my life.
