For important information about our products, visit Hi guys, welcome back to anything goes. I'm Emma Chamberlain, your host, and I am a Chamberlain and the host of the podcast. Anything goes and welcome back. I have recorded the intro to this podcast 15 times because. Every time I record it, it it feels awkward and I think the reason why is because I decide to say my full name every time I record the intro. And I hate saying my full name and makes me so uncomfortable for some reason. It just feels super unnatural. But I feel inclined to do it in the intro of these podcasts because it makes things feel professional, it makes things feel official, and I crave that. You know. That legitimacy, right? Because a lot of the things I do in my career are very casual, and every once in a while I like a little bit of profesh. I like a little bit of the sophisticated, professional feeling to come from my content, and it never works. And there's a reason why. And so I'm just going to stop. Trying to force A. Fancy in intro in the beginning of each of these episodes? You guys don't care. And you know you're listening to. And on that note, welcome back to anything goes with Emma Chamberlain. I am Emma Chamberlain, and thank you for listening. You know what? That one actually felt kind of good. Anyway. What's up everybody? I hope you're having an amazing day. I. I'm going to be talking about. Traveling today, I'm going to be talking about vacations. Today I'm going to be talking about my favorite vacation destinations, my least favorite vacation destinations, what I think makes a good vacation. Some memories, some stories. Etcetera, etcetera. And the reason why I'm dedicating an episode to travel is because I'm not going to lie. I miss it. And. I have kind of a love hate relationship with traveling. Because. I like the idea of traveling a lot more than I like actually traveling, and I always envy people who. Are always traveling. They're always going different places and and that like they seem emotionally stable. While they're traveling, right? They they almost seem like they thrive more while they're traveling. I envy those people because I'm so the opposite. I like traveling and. I do enjoy it, but I do actually genuinely get homesick. And I also am, like, super impatient. And when you're traveling, you need to be really patient, you know, because #1 there's like a learning curve with being in a new place, whether that's dealing with another language that maybe you're unfamiliar with or, you know, you have to sit on a plane for a long time, stuff like that. I'm not a very patient person, and traveling requires a lot of patience. I also. Get anxious when I travel because I worry about what's going on at home, and I feel so far away that I I feel out of control. I'm like if something happens to my house, if, like, my house burns down and I'm out of town, like, in my cats are in there, and like, who's going to save my cats? That's the type of **** I think about when I'm traveling. So I have a love hate relationship with it, right? Because there's, you know, those kind of rough elements. But also I love it because, number one, I get to experience new things, new places. It tends to reset my mind in a way. It makes me feel refreshed and rejuvenated when I travel. It makes me appreciate wherever I live at that time. There's so many pros and cons to traveling. And I have a love hate relationship with it, but right now I'm missing it. A lot. And. I know that there's like a way that I could safely travel if I wanted to, but. Traveling right now just doesn't feel the same because even if you do it safely, you do a road trip or you know, you know, even if you travel on an airplane, you just do it safely and you quarantine and do all that purpose, yes. You can do it safely and there are ways to do it, it's just. Hard because it doesn't feel the same and. Because of that, I just haven't done a lot of traveling this year because it's just a lot. You know, there's a lot more effort and also, like, it doesn't feel right to me. It's hard for me to like. Do it, and I mean I have a little bit here and there, always safely, but it's like. It just hasn't felt right this year, you know what I mean? So I'm missing it a lot and I know that the grass is always greener and it's like. You know what I should just appreciate this time at home right now and try to find the silver lining in it and just appreciate it. But listen, I'm I'm nostalgic of my traveling days. I want to talk about some of my favorite destinations I want to talk about. So, my least favorite, we can reminisce, I can give you some recommendations and we go from there. OK, I'm gonna start out the episode with. My favorite vacations that I've been on. At least that I can remember. Because I I was like, I literally can't remember where I've been. Like, I'm not kidding. I don't remember. And it's not like, oh, I've been to so many places that I forgot I no, it's not that. It's literally the fact that I have the worst ******* memory on the planet and I literally had to call my parents and ask them where I have been because they remember better than me. And they are. 30 years older than me? Worrisome. But these are the ones I can remember that I like remember really loving throughout my whole life. So let's just get right on and do it. My first favorite vacation is actually one of my more recent ones, and it was Joshua Tree. I did a little road trip to Joshua Tree. During the summer and it was nice because. It's in California, so it wasn't a super long drive. Joshua Tree is a desert. In California. And I love it. And let me tell you why #1 the atmosphere. There's a cute little town. That feels homey. There's a bunch of cute little thrift stores, a bunch of cute little dinery style restaurants. And it just feels like a quiet town, you know? You feel secluded from. The rest of the world, and I love that feeling. But also, just being in a desert environment is so great because there's just wide open spaces all around you, and that's something I really like. For some reason, maybe it's because I live in a big city, I don't know, but I love just being. In a place that's just wide open, that just makes me feel so relaxed. There's Joshua Tree National Park, which is a National Park, and if you're into that stuff, great. Personally, I don't enjoy touristy activities, so. I avoid national parks and that is a personal issue. I bet if I went to Joshua Tree National Park I would enjoy it more than anything. I think I just always feel like I'm going to be bored and that absolutely is not the way to think of life or any kind of activity. But I tend to avoid national parks, so I don't know about the National Park. I've heard amazing things, but. What I did was I rented an Airbnb. And a few of my friends safely went to Joshua Tree and just hung out at our Airbnb for the weekend. And it was great. We didn't even really leave the Airbnb. As long as you bring enough food to survive the weekend just being in the desert. Is exciting, and I can't explain why, but it's exciting. You just feel like you can be as loud as you want. You can play music as loud as you want. You can have all the doors open. It it feels like you're in your own world because the desert is so big. And so that's kind of what my friends and I did. We cooked. We, you know, went in a pool. It was great. Not to mention the architecture. In Joshua Tree is really cool, like the house is. There's a lot of really amazing houses to rent there. And they all kind of have a similar style. A lot of them are very. Simple desert modern chic. And I love that. Like, I just love that. It's like they feel super futuristic. It feels like you're in an episode of Black Mirror. You truly feel like you're in another world. Anyway, Joshua tree for me is a 10 out of 10. Great California vacation, great desert vacation. Very fun, would recommend. Another great. Vacation may seem obvious, but it's Paris and let me tell you. Growing up, everybody used to tell me. Emma Paris is, like the best place on the planet, and I'm the type of person where I'm like, OK, I'll believe it when I see it well. I get it now. Paris is one of my favorite places on the planet. I love it because it's like a city and it's kind of rustling and bustling. But it's also weirdly quiet. At the same time, it's like I feel like the city kind of goes to sleep. At night, and obviously you can go out and you can club if you want, but it it still feels quiet at night and it feels peaceful in the morning. And it's not like New York City where you're like, this **** never ends. No, it's like during the day, yes, it's rustling and bustling, but the city does go to sleep and I like that about it. Also, the architecture is amazing. I mean, there's so many beautiful things to look at there. Like the beauty never ends in Paris. It's every building. This beautiful every food that you eat is beautiful and delicious. Amazing fresh food in Paris, amazing coffee in Paris, but everything you look at there is like beautiful. The only part about being in France that I felt bad about was that I'm really ******* stupid and I can only speak English and I know that that's probably frustrating for them because I am so bad at other languages that I can't even remotely speak another language. So. I just feel like I was probably a nuisance. Because of that, and I did genuinely feel bad. But besides that. Amazing. France is one of those places that I feel like. You can't go wrong. It's just amazing. The coffee is so good, the food is so good. It's just like unbelievable. I. And also like, it's one of those places you go and you just feel elegant, you know what I mean? There's something so elegant about it. Everything is so grandiose and. It's just unreal. So France in Paris, Paris specifically. I've never been anywhere else in France but Paris. Is truly. Bay and I get why everybody says this is a must go. You know what I mean? It makes sense. It's very much. Talked about for a reason. OK, so I've told you guys about circle before, right? Spelled CIRKUL. Circle was created for people like me, OK, who don't drink enough water every day circles basically this water bottle with over 40 flavor cartridges that makes drinking water way more tasty. The flavors cover all the bases. They have fruit, punches, iced teas. Some even have caffeine or electrolytes, but there's no sugar, there's no calories, and there's no artificial flavors. My favorite flavor is strawberry Kiwi. And my favorite thing about it is I love how the dial on the cartridge lets you choose how much flavor you get per sip. All you have to do is twist the dial to a certain number for how much flavor that you want and you're ready to go. So the cool thing about it is that you can put the cartridge on. And you can set it to whatever setting you want. So you could set it to a setting where when you take a sip of water, it just tastes like water, so there's no flavor added. But if you're in the mood to add some flavor, you can twist it a little bit. And then you have a super flavorful sip. Right now Circle is giving all of my listeners. Up to 35% off their order, plus free shipping on all orders of $15 or more. Plus, as an added bonus, we're throwing in my favorite flavor, strawberry Kiwi, for free. Just that's to get this limited time offer today again. That's my third vacation. Is the coast of Maine. In the United States. Maine is one of the more underrated summer vacations, in my opinion. I've been going to Maine every summer since I was. 10. And I love it. I feel like not a lot of people go to Maine, and that might be totally ignorant of me to say, but I haven't met a lot of people that travel there or have even been there, and it's ******* incredible. During the summer. I've been there during the winter, it's freezing cold. It's still beautiful and amazing during the winter, but I'm more talking about the summer. Umm. Maine in the summer is amazing. The water there is a little bit cold, I'll tell you that. It's not like you're going on some sort of tropical Bahamas vacation, but I like that about it. When you want to get in the ocean in Maine, yeah, it's going to be cold, but it's like an adventure. You know, if you wanted to get into one of the quarries or swimming holes or lakes, it might be freezing cold, yes. But that's because you're right next door to Canada, OK? And you should expect it to be cold. But I like that about it. It's like. In adventure, you know, and there's so much amazing nature, and that's like what makes a good vacation for me a lot of the times, not always, but a lot of the times it's like a lot of nature because I don't live in nature. So going to a place that has a bunch of trees is amazing to me in Maine. Definitely has that. I've really only been to the coast of Maine. But I bet there's other areas that are amazing, but I'm mainly talking about all of the kind of beach towns in Maine. Another reason why I love it is because everything feels very mom and pop, at least in the town that I used to go to. Everything feels very small business. It's like everything's very it doesn't feel very commercial, you know what I'm saying? Like you go to a cute little general store that looks like it's been there for *******. 200 years, OK, you go to an ice cream shop. You feel like that ice cream shop has been there for the past 800 years, and they've been using the same ******* ice cream scoop for the past 14 decades. Everything feels. Real and like it has a story and I I really like that about Maine is that there's a lot of. Vintage Ness. So not a word, but like. I don't know, there's just, like a lot of cool history. Like it's just like, you know, and you can see it in the buildings, you know what I mean? Like. Everything feels like you're traveling back in time, in a way. Feels kind of old timey. That's not to say not all areas of Maine are like this, but the area I used to go to was very much like this. I also like the vibe of being in a beach town where, you know, there's a bunch of fishermen hanging out at the general store eating, you know, they're bacon and eggs and it's just like. It feels cool and it's such a different environment for me, so I love it. It also feels very small town vibe. So it's like, you know, you get to know the kids in the neighborhood when you stay there and you get to know the other kids that are vacationing there and you know. It's just an amazing thing, so. Maine is great. There's cute little islands you can travel to, you can take a kayak out, you can take a paddle board out, and you know that you're going to get some good old peace and quiet in a cute little fisherman town. And there's nothing better than that for me. Also, I love general stores. You know you're in a good vacation spot when there's a general store. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, a general store is like. A cute little. Store that looks like it's from the 1950s, that has kind of like everything CVS would have except it's a lot cuter because the store looks like it's from the 1950s. That is my aesthetic. I would kill for that aesthetic and I love that aesthetic. So Maine is an amazing place and. I'd really recommend it. Another one is Hawaii. Ohh blah blah. Shut up and we know Hawaii is amazing. It really is though. I love Hawaii so much and I love it because it's just always fun. Like, I swear to God, you can go to Hawaii at any time of the year and have an amazing vacation. The ocean is warm. The food is good, the coffee is good. You literally can't go wrong and listen, I'm not a huge fan of. Staying at some sort of crazy big resort, but I swear my one exception is in Hawaii like. I don't like the idea of staying at a resort hotel, that type of thing. I hate that. I used to love it when I was a kid. I hate it now just because I feel like it's so. I don't know. I shouldn't hate it because it's like, that's just so ****** ** for me to say like, whatever, it's because it's like, what? What? What are resorts doing wrong? But I would just rather, like, stay at a cute little. Airbnb somewhere and, like, rent out somebody's house who, like, actually lives there and like, really feel like I'm a part of. Where I'm staying, you know what I'm saying? I prefer that now that I'm older, but. In Hawaii, though, you can't go wrong. You could literally stay anywhere, and you're gonna have, like the best time of your life. It's just like a tropical dream. And the people there are so ******* nice, like I swear to God. The nicest people on the planet. Really? In such great fresh food in the pineapple is so good. Like there's something about the pineapple in Hawaii. Everybody who's been to Hawaii and who has had the pineapple knows that their their pineapple hits different. I love Hawaii. Good people, good beach, like good vacation that you just can rely on. Like you just cannot go wrong with Hawaii. I have been to Maui. Twice. Obsessed. I like would go there right now if it was up to me. OK. My next place is another. This is a controvert, OK, I'm going to say New York because I love going to New York. I really do like I've, I've had so many great trips to New York and there was a long period of time there where I wanted to move there. But. I don't want to move there anymore. I don't think I'm ever going to live there, actually, but I I'm really learning to appreciate it as a as a vacation, right? Even though sometimes New York can be tough. And I'll get into it like it's one of my favorite vacation spots, but yet it can actually be tough and I'll explain. So I love it because it truly is a 24/7 party like. It when they say the city never sleeps, they're not lying. It's like constantly fun. You can walk out onto the street at 4:00 in the morning to go get a snack from a little corner store and it's gonna you're gonna meet a friend. Like there's something fun about that, you know what I mean? It's not like. The city just never sleeps and I like that about it. I also like how many amazing restaurants and how many amazing clothing stores and how many amazing. Things there are to do there. Like, there's so many things to do there that you can never actually get bored. That's another great thing, but it's it's not somewhere that I think I can live, because after traveling there enough times I started to realize how exhausting it is. It's really it's hard to get yourself around, you know, like, I'm somebody that, like, struggles with taking the subway. I've actually never done it in New York because I think it would make me too anxious. And that is totally, again, a personal problem. I bet the subway is not even that hard to use, but I'm genuinely afraid of trying it, so I always like, take taxis around and that's very stressful. It's kind of a walking city, like I feel like. You know you're going to want to walk around a lot there because there's a lot of traffic. It's kind of crazy. But like, getting around can be kind of tough. But also it is exhausting because it's so like. Awake 24/7. It's like by the end of your trip there, you're like damn like I need a two week nap. I slept 5 hours total the whole time I was here. I'm ready for a nap. But it's exciting. It's exciting. Like there's so there's like no limit to what you can do while you're there. There's so many things to see. There's endless touristy things to do, but also endless fun whole in the wall restaurants and stores and stuff like that that you can find it has the best of every world. Like you know what I'm saying? I know Hannah Montana is the best of both worlds, but in this case, it's literally the best of every world because it's like there's so many different things, like there's. You know, Times Square? That's like rustling and bustling. But then you have like, you know, a cute little hole in the wall restaurant. That's just delicious. But then you also have, you know, cool trendy stores that are like. Fun, But then you also have, like cool thrift stores. But then you also have like. There's everything there. It's a great place to go when you're feeling like, wow, my life has been dull recently. Go to New York and you will no longer feel dull. You'll get. Actually like. It it will like make you wanna be dull again, and that's kind of a nice thing. But also I feel like if you lived in New York, you'd figure out like a good, you know? Routine where there's some serenity in it. Maybe. But I'm more talking about vacay. OK, so, but I love New York and I will never move there. But I. Do enjoy going there. My next vacation that I liked is super random. But I really like Arizona. I know it's it's random. It's not. I guess it's not that random, but like, not a lot of people. Like, a lot of people have mixed reviews on Arizona. When I tell people I like Arizona, it's always the room is split. Half the people are like, Emma, what the **** are you talking about? And then the other half are like, no, I get it. Like, I love it too. I like it because it's so. Chill. Like it is so chill. It's like. Kind of boring. But that's what I like about it. And they have Dutch Bros, which is this really fun drive through coffee slash. Energy drink. Shop and they have them all over Arizona. And I love Dutch Bros you just. Drive there at like any hour of the day and you can get a really decent coffee or energy drink. And the people who work at Dutch Bros are so nice and. It's just simple. Like, I feel like Arizona is simple and it's also kind of desserty, right? Depending on where you are and there's a bunch of wide open spaces. It's also kind of a fun place to be social. Like there's a lot of kind of crazy restaurants and stuff like that that are a little bit tacky, if you will. Maybe. But they're fun because it's like a party. There's something about Arizona that just gives me party vibes and even though I'm 19 and I. You know, it's like, oh, Emma, what the **** do you know about that? Well, shut up. Because it's like. There's something fun about it. And it and it might be a little. It might be a little bit touristy. It might be a little bit. Tacky if you will, but like a little trip to Scottsdale. Is that where I went? Don't go to Scottsdale. **** I don't know. I don't know where the **** I went, but I think I was in Scottsdale. It really could have been anywhere. I have no ******* idea. But a little trip to Scottsdale or wherever the **** I I traveled to. There's something charming about it and I really can't put a finger on it. And it's sold like different from everything else that I mentioned because it's a lot. It is a little bit more commercial. It's not as much small town vibes. I mean there probably are absolutely some small town vibes in Arizona, but it doesn't really give off that vibe as much, at least from my experience. But there's something fun about it. It just feels like a party and I love it. I love the tacky restaurants, I love the like, you know, kind of saloon looking restaurants. It's just fun. And I also love desert environments. I really love desert vacations because it's truly one of the more relaxing types of vacations that you can go on, in my opinion. Maybe that's an unpopular opinion, but I really like it. And. I don't know Arizona. I don't. I I don't know. I like it. Oh, I went to Sedona. OK, I went to Sedona. When I went to Arizona. And I loved it. Like, OK, it's like, you can go on like little Jeep tours and you can do stuff like that. I also went to Phoenix. Phoenix was fun, too. I think I also went to Scottsdale. I've been to quite a few places in Arizona, but it's like, Nice. It's it's fun. You know, it's like it's desserty and. There's some real gems in there. What does it really take to make it in New York City when you're young? The come up is a new freeform docu reality series on Hulu. It follows 6 ambitious creative 20 somethings in NYC as they break the status quo and take up all the space. It's a real look into how this next generation of icons are breathing life back into the downtown scene, all while pursuing their dreams, which is a long way of saying they're killing it. The show follows Sophia, a breakthrough photographer who shot her first spread for nylon at just 13 and has been shooting major campaigns ever since. Fernando Modeling's next international star, Tawfiq, the youngest fashion designer to show at New York Fashion Week, Claude, a New York native and aspiring actress. Ben arising, entertainer from Texas and a newbie to New York City, and Ebon, a trans rights activist and fixture of New York underground nightlife. This is now or never. With big goals and even bigger ceilings to break through, they'll need to bust their ***** to chase their dreams. It's time to hustle free forms the come up new episodes Wednesdays on Hulu. OK, and last but not least, my last vacation recommendation that I can think of right now. Is Lake Tahoe. In California. Lake Tahoe is. Unreal. OK, I so growing up in California, Lake Tahoe was a very big vacation spot for a lot of the kids that went to school with me because it's a big, beautiful lake about four hours away. And it's great for things like 4th of July, etcetera, etcetera or if you're into like skiing and all that stuff I think they have. You know. Ski lifts or whatever like **** I don't know but. It's just great. I I went during the summer twice with I always went with friends, like I always had friends bring me to their Tahoe houses because I didn't have a Tahoe house. But I just think it's amazing. I think, I mean, I haven't been to a lot of lakes in my life, so I don't know how Lake Tahoe compares, but I mean, it's unreal. Like the water is crystal clear. And it's also not saltwater, which I know is probably common for lakes. But I remember when I found this out I was mind blown because you go in the water and you don't come out all salty and gross. You come out and you feel clean. It's amazing. The water is a little bit cold in Lake Tahoe, but you get used to it and you can take boats out. You can take jet skis out. It's just like a fun lake town, you know? And there's no Lake Tahoe massive, so there's so many different. Towns around it, and I've been to two or three of them and I've liked all of them, so I don't think you can really go wrong. Lake Tahoe is a great California lake and I would really recommend it. It's just great. Although I did hear something about how there's like 300 dead bodies at the bottom of Lake Tahoe because it's extremely deep. From some sort of like. Historical. They're like something many years ago happened and they dumped a bunch of dead bodies in there and they're just like frozen at the bottom of Lake Tahoe. So I don't know if that's true. I read an article about it that is just something that I saw. I don't know if it's true, but regardless, amazing lake and so fun. Although one time I took a jet ski out in Lake Tahoe and I got the lake is massive, OK? It's like massive, massive like miles and miles and miles and miles. Miles along and I. Rajski out by myself and got ******* lost on the lake. And. I couldn't figure out where the dock was. So. I was just like. Jet skiing around for like an hour and I only rented this jet ski, mind you, for an hour, so I'm like definitely going overtime and I'm jet skiing around for about an hour trying to find where my doc was, but all the docs looked the same and I'm so far out that I didn't even know where the **** I was, so I literally had. To find someone who was a family, I found a family that was in a boat and I was like, can you guys please call my mom? So then I had this family call my mom from the lake, from the middle of the lake. And then my mom called the family that I was staying with, and then they sent someone out to find me. And I was bawling my eyes out. I thought I was going to die and I lost all jet ski privileges for the rest of the trip. Mind you, I was like 16, so I definitely had no reason to be like getting lost and crying like that. Seems very toddler esque of a thing to do, but. Traumatizing either way. Lake Tahoe. Great vacation. Great restaurants, great time. 10 out of 10 loved it. OK, so next I'm going to talk about some of my not so great vacations and also. Talk about some things that I don't like in a vacation, if that makes sense. Like what makes a bad vacation for me? I'm going to talk about it. So I'm going to start out with my bad vacations that I've been on. The 1st place I went that I didn't really like was Orlando, FL. I went there for a social media convention back in the day and the reason why I didn't like it was because. Uh. It was it. It felt like everything was Disney World. Do you know what I mean? Like everything was so built up. There was just malls and Disney worlds and. You know, different. Everything was so touristy to a point where it was almost scary. Like I I think I have an issue with like really, really touristy places like let's say. What's like a good example that like everybody would know? I think Orlando, FL is a perfect example. It's like. There's like a just massive Cheesecake factory, and there's just like a massive. Like McDonald's and like a massive. Shopping mall and like a massive amusement park and like, all when when that's what a whole vacation vacation destination is. I I just don't like it because it doesn't feel real. And I think for me, as I'm getting older, traveling is less about feeling like I'm in some sort of dream world of. Monopoly businesses, that's even. What is a monopoly business? Hey. OK. I think I think I might have used that term actually correctly. I don't like when everything feels like it's a commercial. Do you know what I'm saying? Where it's like I'm just, it's just a bunch of chain restaurants, a bunch of chain companies, a bunch of like big, big businesses and like, that's it. And that's how I felt when I was in. Orlando, FL I was like, OK, we have Disney World, we have big shopping malls, we have big hotels. Everything's big and everything feels fake to me and I hate it. So not a huge fan of Orlando, FL. I I just didn't like it and I don't think I'd go there again if it was up to me. I'm also not a huge fan of like resorts, like Big Resorts, and I said that earlier, but I don't like it because I feel like. Sometimes when you're in a big resort, it can take you away from like the real hidden gems. In the place that you're staying and. I don't know. I just. I think that there's something fun about it actually exploring around the place that you're staying and not just like being in a resort, you know what I mean? Like, go out and explore. I I don't know. But I also get that, like, resorts can be fun, and some people are totally about that. And I get it. I'm not judging at all, but just for me personally, I just don't like it. It's it feels fake to me and I can't shake that feeling. Another place that I didn't really like was Las Vegas, and it's a similar vibe. It's like everything is very built up, everything is very big and bright and shiny and commercially and monopoly. I don't know about. You know what I'm saying? It's like a bunch of big. *******. Major businesses plopped all into one place. The other thing about Las Vegas I didn't like was that there's really nothing for me to do because I don't gamble and I don't think I'm even legally allowed to anyway. I just didn't find that there was a lot for me to do in Las Vegas because it's like a lot of the activities there are just not things that I enjoy doing. I don't know. And even like the. I mean, it's. I think it can be fun. On a special occasion, like, I could see it being fun, but there's something about it that just like feels. A little bit scary to me and I like can't pinpoint it, so I'm not a huge fan of Las Vegas. I don't know if I'd go there again, but I also could see like an opportunity where somebody was like weekend trip in Vegas, like let's go crazy and. Go to a crazy shopping mall and. Eat at these fancy restaurants with like. You know, performance is happening simultaneously. Like, I could see that being fun for like, a weekend trip, but it's not something I'm gonna seek out again. I also don't think it's something I'm gonna enjoy until I'm. Legally allowed to drink alcohol, so. Yeah. I am not a huge fan of Vegas. It just feels very fake to me as well. I think that that might be a reoccurring theme here. I don't really like places that feel like one big amusement park. I feel like Las Vegas and Orlando, FL are both like that. It just feels like you're in one big amusement park. I'd so much rather. Find a hidden gem somewhere and like make that place feel like home for a week. You know what I mean? That's kind of more what I like. I don't know. That's just my vibe, especially now that I'm older. But I'm not gonna lie though, when I was younger. Going on a trip? That wasn't a resort or an amusement park. Did not sound like a trip to me. And it's so funny how you get older and you learn to like, appreciate. The. Beauty of travelling somewhere that's maybe a small town or something and like making yourself at home there, there's something so amazing about that. And like enjoying peace and quiet. But when you're younger, like, no, I wanna ride roller coaster. I wanna eat at a big cheesecake factory. And I want to go to the gift store in the gift shop, like, you want that. And even some people when they're older want that. But like, I just feel like I can't, I can't do it anymore because it almost feels dark to me and I know that that sounds like really weird, but there's something dark about it to me and I can't put a finger on it, like. Las Vegas to me gives me this weird energy because it feels so manufactured and I like it. It scares me. I can't put a finger on it. Please tell me I'm not the only one but like it. I not saying that I couldn't appreciate it if I went in, like just appreciated it for what it was, but I'm just saying that like in general. That's what deters me from that type of vibe, the type of 1 big amusement Park City vibe, you know, I don't know. OK, next I'm going to tell you some interesting vacation stories. I don't know if they're gonna be interesting, but you can be the judge. So one time I was in Dallas, TX and I was actually there for a cheer competition. So I guess it wasn't really a vacation. But I consider that to be a vacation because even though I was there for a cheer competition. It still feels like a vacation to me. But I decided to stay at a hotel, and I'm not going to say what hotel it is because I don't know if they could sue me, although I feel like I could sue them for this. But I'm just not going to say their name because I don't like legal battles. I'm not like really that into that. Definitely not mentally stable enough for that either. But I get to the hotel and it's a it's a nice chain hotel, right? And I get into bed. And I'm exhausted because I just sat on a plane all day. I'm tired. I just want to get some rest, so I get in bed and I take a nap and I wake up and there's something poking me in the leg. And so I lift up the sheets and I see. I'm like groggy too, because I, like just woke up from a nap and like, what the **** is going on? And I thought it could have been like a feather. Like, you know how if you're sleeping with like a down pillow or something, there can be feathers poking out of it or whatever. Even though I feel like flower or not, although I feel like feather pillows are something that seem outdated to me, like I I can't believe that that still exists. It's so random to me, but also maybe there's like something. Good about them that I'm not seeing. But anyway I thought it was like a feather or something. I I don't know. I I couldn't tell but something was poking me in the leg. So I lift up the sheet and I have like a full on scratch on my leg and something had been cutting me while I was sleeping and I look on the mattress and I'm like, what the **** is this? And I start feeling through the mattress and I see. I push down on the mattress in a needle. Pops through the fitted sheet. And I call my mom over and I'm like, Mommy. Yeah, I still call her mommy. Shut up. What the **** is this? She comes over, she's like, I don't know. So we removed the fitted sheet from the mattress and we pull out a ******* hypodermic needle. And if you don't know what a hypodermic needle is, I can kind of explain it to you. It's like. If you were to inject. Something indie like your vein. Like it's a medical thing. They can also be abused. Like you could use them to inject drugs and stuff like that, and it seemed to be clean, like it wasn't a dirty needle. It didn't look like it anyway, but it was in the bed. My mom immediately freaks out because this had left a cut on my leg that had open. It was an open wound and my mom was like Emma. You could get really sick from this. We need to go to the hospital right now, so we go to. A hospital that is actually connected to my hotel, which is weirdly perfect. It's almost like. Meant to be. But we go in there and we're like, this is what happened, like, what the **** do we do? And they're like, OK, well, you need to get tested for all of these illnesses for the next year. Because even though. You know. Like, there's no way to know. Like there's no way to know if you got sick from this needle because a lot of illnesses take time to show up, so you're going to need to get tested for the next year. To find out if you have any of these, like needle borne illnesses. Whatever. Bloodborne illnesses. **** bloodborne illnesses. And so my mom was a ******* my mom and I both were a wreck for the next year, getting me tested every few months for all these different diseases that I could have possibly gotten from this needle. Thank God I am so grateful. I never got sick from it. I was totally fine, but super bizarre. Very bizarre. So that was that. OK, so if I were to host a live radio show and I could play any music I wanted, I would honestly probably have the time of my Life OK, but I'll admit I would probably end up playing. Just sad music. I don't know what it is about me, but I love sad music, OK? And so I'd probably end up playing. A lot of sad music. Specifically for the people who are listening in the car by themselves. That want to shed a tear in a good way? Well now there is a place that I or you or anyone can host a live show. Amp is the platform that allows people to come together and create live, unfiltered radio shows with whatever music or content that they love. And this is like a real show where you can have people listening live and you can pick exactly which songs to play, and you can even have fans calling in to chat while you're on air. If I had a live show, I would definitely. Have people call in and ask me for dating advice honestly, so I think I'd have to do dating advice. You know what this actually sounds like the perfect radio show. Sad music combined with dating advice, because all of the shows on AMP are run by real people. You can tell that the playlists are authentic. A playlist generated automatically just sounds different than one that an individual is controlling based on their passions and tastes. And with 10s of millions of licensed songs to choose from, everyone will find the music that appeals to them. But it's not just music. You can have a talk show, or react to news, or riff on pop culture, and that's one of the best parts about being a podcast host. You can just riff. On whatever. Excites your mind on any given day. So download AMP today in the App Store. That's amp. Or ask Alexa to play amp. Another fun story I have is from one time when I went to Paris and I was there for Fashion Week and your sleep schedule gets really ****** ** when you travel to Europe. Because, I mean, especially if you're coming from the United States, because it's probably going to be anywhere from, you know, 12 to. Well, I guess probably like 5 to 12 hours, but for me it's 12 hours to get to Paris. So my sleep schedule is always bad when I get there, and so I remember. One time I was awake all night. And I decided I would take a walk by myself at night. Terrible ******* idea. The awful idea, like if my I don't even think my mom knows that I did this, if she she would be so ******* mad at me if she knew. But I went on a walk. And I was just listening to music and whatever and. My phone starts dying. And I remember I'm like, OK. I don't know how. To get home. And if my phone dies? I'm ****** because there was like no one around. So. I'm in like comfy clothes. I start jogging. My phone's just going from like 3 to 2 to one. I'm at 1%. I'm following the map. I'm still probably like, you know, a 5 minute walk away. Now I know that that doesn't seem that scary, but I'm like. Number one, I can't read street signs. I can't memorize street signs. #2 nobody is out right now. So. If I get lost, like, am I gonna have to knock on someone's *******? Front door. I don't know what to do. I also I don't speak French. So if I just pull a random person off of the side of the road and say, hey, can you help me? Chances are they're not even gonna know. What I'm saying possibly. I mean, they probably they might, I mean, I don't know, but like, they might not. And so. I could be very ****** here. This story is extremely anticlimactic because I got back to my hotel. My phone was at 1%, the brightness was all the way down. I made it back, but I literally my heart was beating for. The rest of the evening. And I was so, like jazzed up that I never actually went to bed that night. And I ended up waking up the next day and. Well, I didn't actually wake up, sorry. I ended up living the entire next day on 0 hours of sleep. And I've never felt. More ill in my life. If I would have just forced myself to go to bed and instead of going on the walk that I went on. I would have had a great day in Paris, everything would have been fine and dandy and I wouldn't have had 15 shots of espresso. Umm. Throughout the day so. That was that. OK anyway. I probably have more interesting traveling stories, but I'd really have to Wrack my brain. And as I said earlier, we're dealing with the person with the worst memory on the planet. Like I have. Terrible. Terrible memory. So I'm really going to have to call everybody I know and ask them if they have any funny stories that they remember, because those were the only two I have, so. The last thing we're going to be talking about is my dream vacations. These are the places that I really want to go really bad. And I don't know, I just want to share number One South of France. It just looks unbelievable. I mean, it's like summary vibes. It looks like the architecture is unbelievable. I already love Paris, so I feel like the South of France would be unbelievable. So that's a big one. Second one is British Columbia, Canada. This might seem random, but I remember one time in like 2015 I saw. A vine, actually. Little TBT to vine, but some girl who lives in British Columbia made this vine this like cute little aesthetic vine. Of her home in British Columbia. And ever since then I've wanted to go because it's like woodsy. And quiet and beautiful. And I was like, wow, I want to be there. It looks cold, like I just want to get a little cute cabin in British Columbia and not leave that cabin for a week. Preferably with at least one other person, because I think I would go crazy about myself not leaving a cabin for a week, although kind of well, I guess. I don't know, but it sounds unbelievable. I feel like it's like my dream is to get a little cabin in British Columbia with one or more other people so that I don't lose my mind and we just make warm soups and warm tea the whole time. I want that #3 is Switzerland. I saw Tik T.O.K once of. Somewhere in Switzerland. The water there is so blue there's a bunch of green. Plants and hills. And it just looked unreal. And I mean, I don't know anything about Switzerland, I've never done any research, but. All I needed to see was one. Artsy Tik T.O.K of Switzerland is sell me. I was like this is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. So that definitely. That's definitely on the list. #4 is London. I've never been to London, but I've just heard such great things like it sounds like. It's just so fun and it sounds like it's beautiful. And I mean, I've seen photos. It looks beautiful. I just like the vibe of like a foggy European vacay like, I love that and I feel like London very much gives me that vibe. Also, I'm very interested in the food in London, because I feel like the food in London, it's very interesting. Like I I don't really know what kind of food I mean. I know they probably have like, whatever, but like, what is English food like? You know. What is British food like? I want to know. Is London and England? Oh my God, I'm a ******* idiot. Wait, what's the difference between wait, there's London, England and there's Britain? Wait, I don't get it. See? I'm *******. I'm dumb. Like, don't if. OK, I'm sorry. London. England. So is it in wait, what? I don't get it. So what's? United Kingdom. Wait. I don't get how this works because. Wait, so where's England? We know that is England. Oh my God, I'm so. Guys, I'm sorry, I'm not. I only went to. I didn't. I didn't go to college, OK? I'm sorry. I don't know if going to college that would have helped me with this, to be honest. OK? I don't really understand. How this works? I don't understand how the map of the United Kingdom works. But I just want to know more about food in London in England in general. So. Oh, England and United Kingdom are not the same. I don't get it. OK I have some friends who live in London and I'm literally going to ask them tomorrow how the **** how the **** the map works cause I'm trying to figure out like OK is like. What is the like? You know, I'm gonna stop myself before I look too stupid. Yep. I'm going to stop myself before I look too stupid trying to figure out how this map works in London. It's not good for me anyway, my 5th dream vacation destination is Japan. I've again heard just so many amazing things and it's just like. It would just be so ******* cool to. Go there and experience. All the different things that there are to experience there, like there's I I don't even know how to explain it, but it just it seems like. Such a cool spot also like fashion wise too. You know, Japan is a very big fashion. Spot, and I think it could be really inspiring to see the street style there and all that. I just think that'd be really fun. Last but not least, New Zealand. I don't know anything about New Zealand, but one time I flew over it. In a plane. And it looked beautiful, so I think I'd like to go there. I know nothing about it. And those are some of my dream vacations right now. I don't really have many more. I'd love to go to the Hamptons in New York because I I feel like that would just make me feel. Like 1,000,000 bucks. You know what I mean? Like something about going to the Hamptons. It just it the the name of it. I don't even know what the Hamptons are. Is. Isn't it kind of like a beach town in New York? It just seems so sophisticated. If anybody has a Hamptons house by chance, I mean. I know it's a stretch here and but and wants to invite me. Please let me know because I'd love to explore that experience. I don't know. Anyway, so I asked you guys on the Twitter at AG podcast to ask me questions about traveling. Maybe it could be. You know. Advice? Just questions. I don't know how you can ask questions about ******* traveling, but. Here we are trying to do it. OK, listen. Being in quarantine for this long has made me. Really? For run out of things to talk about and so me going on the Twitter and asking you guys for questions about traveling, listen, it's it's a stretch, I know, but let's just get through this. Pandemic and then we can. You know, maybe. I can tell some crazy stories, but unfortunately I have no crazy stories in my life. Oh, this is a good one, somebody said. How do you know what to pack? OK. Something that I didn't used to do when I was younger and it always used to **** me over was I'd never actually checked the weather. For where I was going, so, like, let's say I was going to Hawaii, which only happened once, but whatever, let's say I was going to Hawaii. You would assume it would just be Beachy, summer vibes, nonstop well. Sometimes it rains in Hawaii. I wouldn't check that out before I would go. Then it would start raining in Hawaii and I'm like, wow, it would have been really nice to have packed a ******* rain jacket. So my first tip is to check the weather, because it might be unpredictable and you might have something that like, you know, something might happen that you. Could have been more prepared for like cold weather at night or you know, a Blizzard. I don't ******* know. But like just check the weather because it's very helpful. It might be an extra hot week that week. So even though you might be traveling somewhere this normally cold, it might be a little bit warmer that week. Now you have a short sleeve shirt that you brought. That you can wear. OK another tip I have is to have a toiletry bag. That. Is always pre packed. Now listen I know that that's kind of like if you don't travel a lot that maybe isn't necessary. But for me I have like a toiletry bag that has everything I need in it pre packed at all times. Like I only pull it out when I travel. It has toothpaste it has. Toothbrush, deodorant, all of that. And I know everything's in there, so I never am, like, unpacking and repacked it, repacking it. I just bought double s of everything I use on a day-to-day basis and put it all in there so that I'd never have to, like, worry about forgetting my favorite deodorant, I'd never have to worry about forgetting a toothbrush, forgetting toothpaste, whatever. I know that it's always in that bag and I can rely on it. Et cetera, et cetera. OK. I mean, and I think just besides that. Make sure you have a good pair of sweatpants, a reliable pair of jeans, a good hoodie, a good T-shirt, and your favorite sneakers, and you'll probably be fine. I OK, so I've been obsessed with posting on Instagram since I was in high school. Which is funny because it's like. You know I'm one of the first generations who had Instagram and high school, right? But. I was obsessed with having an aesthetic Instagram even when I was, you know, a freshman in high school. So if I would go on any type of trip, I would be packing so that I could look stylish. Every single day of that damn trip so that I could get the most Instagram photos I could possibly comprehend getting, so that I could post for all of my other high school people to see, majority of them being people that I. Wasn't friends with or didn't really like and that's how social media works, right? So. This was tough because I was literally packing 10 outfits for a three day trip just so that I could get 500 Instagram photos. But that proves that I have always been. A little bit for Instagram. Like even before I did any of this, I was still. A. ******* little *****. When it came to the Instagram algorithm, I was always. Trying to be Pinterest. From day one, and that's sad. It's sad that that's ingrained in me, but also, I guess I wouldn't want it any other way. But now that I'm getting older, I'm like, Emma, you don't need to ******* pack 10 outfits. You don't need to take Instagram photos when you're on vacation. You can actually enjoy it. Or you can just, you know, pack two or three good outfits and like, you know, have a few days where you do that, but also spend time enjoying the trip. That's something I wish I would have done more when I was in high school. I feel like my friends and I would. Go on trips and the only thing we cared about was getting photos. And even if I go on family trips. I just wanted to make it look good on social media and I didn't actually care about the trip. When I was literally in high school and I didn't even do social media yet, like, that's sad. Like, I was literally, like just posting for like people that went to my high school, my friends and family. That was it. And I still was like obsessed with creating this, you know? Story of wow, I'm on this amazing vacation I remember. One time I went on a trip to Key West with my mom and I posted 6 Instagram photos and one day 6. And you can imagine the people in my high school were like, this ***** is ******* annoying. And I guess, you know, it doesn't really matter. It's like if I wanted to post six times on my Instagram, then. *** **** it. Who's gonna stop me? You know what I mean. Like, it's not anybody else's business. It doesn't really ******* matter. But it was like. I was that obsessed with like, posting about it that I was posting six times a day and like. That's. Kind of sad. And so now that I'm older, I'm like, no, I'm not gonna just. Go on a trip to ******* take Instagram photos. I'm gonna go on a trip to ******* enjoy and spend time with people that I care about. But it's crazy that at one point I used to. Fill my suitcase with half of my closet. So that I could have a photo shoot every 20 minutes on my trip. Like I just hate that. So I would actually recommend if you want to know what to pack. Pack light so that you're forced to live in the moment and you don't get tempted to take Instagram photos every 20 minutes, although probably for normal people. That's not a problem, you know what I'm saying. It's crazy. It's crazy that I used to do that. Sorry I went off on a tangent, but. Umm. Had to talk about that little blip in time. Somebody said, do you like going to new places or familiar places? I like both. I like going to new places because you know. It's fun to go somewhere new and have like a fully new experience, and it's kind of fun to like. Go into it blindly and not know what you're getting yourself into. I like that, but I also do really like going to familiar places because it kind of feels like an extension of home and I know when I'm. Feeling really? Kind of burnt out in LA. Going to a familiar place is great for me because I know what to expect. I know all my favorite places there and. I can just jump right into it and start relaxing. Whereas when you go to a new place, there's like a lot of adjusting that takes place and stuff like that. And you're kind of uncomfortable because like, I don't know where the **** I am, I don't know what I'm doing, blah, blah. Where's a familiar place? You're like, I know how this **** works. So I think when you're like. Wanting an exciting vacation? A new place is great, but if you want a really relaxing vacation, sometimes something familiar is is the way to go. Somebody said, where is my favorite Food City? OK, this is genuinely really hard for me. Umm. Because I don't know. But I think my favorite Food City would probably have to be. Paris. And the reason why I say that is because everything is so fresh, like I don't know why. But. Everything is very fresh and it doesn't feel. Like it's from a bottle or from the freezer, you know what I mean? Everything feels very farm to table in France. And also I like how delicate a lot of the meals are. And you know, I don't know, it's just. A lot of really great fresh food. They also have a lot of great vegan food, which I didn't expect, but I found a lot of really cool vegan restaurants. And I just had a great time eating in Paris. Also, one of my favorite things that I ate in Paris was. I don't know where it is, but they there was a falafel stand and I think they have a few of them around, but if you can find a falafel stand. In Paris you go. It's so good. It's so good. I got a ******* it was a pita bread with falafel and a bunch of other yummy things in it with a bunch of hummus and tahini. Oh my God, and. Falafel is one of my favorite foods, and I had one of the best ones I've ever had. In Paris, I also had like amazing vegetables. Like, I feel like they just cook their vegetables in the most delicate and decadent way. Like whether you're getting a salad or like a side of asparagus, like, it doesn't ******* matter. Like they just do it right. Umm. I also really like the food in New York, but the problem with the food in New York is that a lot of it, a lot of the yummy food options in New York are things that do not agree with my sensitive stomach. So I don't really do so well with cheese. I don't really do so well with gluten. I don't really do so well with virtually anything. I have a lot of stomach issues, so going and getting a $1.00 slice of pizza tastes ******* unbelievable. Going and getting amazing. Late night New York ramen? Unbelievable. Going and getting a sandwich from a bodega. Unbelievable. But I am left in my hotel room with excruciating stomach pain because those foods do not work for me in my belly. So. If I had no stomach issues, I would say New York. But Paris is it's great also with Paris. Oh my God. The pastries. That's my favorite part, the pastries. Unreal. They just their pastries are like every pastry that you get from a cafe is so good, whereas I feel like in America it's like you go to a. You know you go to a if you just decided to stroll into a random cafe. Odds are the pastry is going to be half ***. And I mean, that might just be my experience and I might be a little bit jaded, but I feel like in Paris there's so much more homemade stuff. You know what I'm saying? I don't know. Like, a lot of the cafes really, like, make **** themselves. And like, they a lot of them make their own nut milk, too. If you're getting a latte, it's just I was just so good. So Paris in New York, but probably Paris. Somebody said, are you a social person when you travel somewhere new? Do you like to meet people, etcetera? No, I hate that I like to go on trips with like. You know, one or more people that I know, and I like to stick with the people that I'm with. Like, I kind of would like to bring the social interaction to the trip, if that makes sense. Like, I'd rather go on a trip with ten of my friends that I'm maybe not even that close with and, like, bond with them, then go out and meet new people. I hate meeting new people. It makes me anxious. I avoid it at all costs, and that's that. Although I'm never opposed to a cute little convo with somebody in a coffee shop. If it happens, you know what I'm saying. It happens. It happens, right? But I never seek it out. I do enjoy traveling though. With. Like my friends, because, you know, we all get to bond. Also if you have a Bay, like traveling with a. With bays can be great, like there's so many. People that you can bring, it's like, why be social, you know? I don't know, but maybe that's just me. I just don't like meeting new people. Although if I was like. Maybe when I get older and I can like go to bars and stuff. Like, maybe that would be fun, but like, that could probably be really fun. But I've just never I'm, you know? Just now entering adulthood. So that answer could change as I grow up. We will see. Somebody said aisle or window seat, I am so. Torn on what my favorite plane seat is like I I literally cannot decide if it's a I think that I've kind of nailed my formula. Like I think I've figured out my formula if it's a long flight. Aisle seat. If it's a short flight, window seat and I'll explain peeing. I hate climbing over people's lap. When I have to pee. I hate it. There's nothing I hate more. Even if it's somebody I know, I hate it. I just hate it. And. So if I'm on a long flight, it's inevitable that I'm to pee at least 1520 times. I mean, with me it's like my bladder is tiny, so I. I think I'll seat for a long flight, but for a short flight I choose a window seat because I do enjoy window seats. Like I enjoy them thoroughly because I like looking at the window. I love watching the plane land. I love it. But I also just hate sitting on planes because I get really bad back pain and so sitting on a plane makes my, like, sciatica and my back really bad. ******* TMI probably, but like I get such bad back pain on planes that I like. Wish I never had to fly on one again. But I also, you know, you have to sit on a plane. Or else you don't get anywhere. Like you can't. It's not like you can just take a ******* boat, you know what I mean? You gotta do something. So anyway. I always try to sleep. Fun fact, this is kind of off topic, but I like to sleep on planes and. Usually what I do. Is I put down the tray table and then I layout my sweatshirt or my jacket on the tray table, and then I sleep on that, kind of like I'm hunched over onto the tray table. Now, this sounds like it would be good in theory, but for some reason when I sleep on a plane like that. I get the worst stomach pain. It is so random, and I've talked to other people about this. I'm like, do you guys get this stabbing? Pain and and and everybody's like some people are like, yes, and some people are like no. I don't know why it happens to me, but if I sleep hunched over on a plane, I will get excruciating stomach pain for minimum the next 12 hours. So I've had to learn how to sleep sitting right, sitting straight up and it's awful. Although I did have the luxury, I've had the luxury of flying first Class A few times and it is a game changer for me. Like. It's such a ******* amazing experience, I literally. Wish that it was. I wish that that was the way the planes were like I wish that that was the way planes were because. Planes are painful. I don't understand people who can sit on a plane. For six hours and just like, be fine like it. It emotionally, physically destroys me for some reason. But the few times that I've flown first class. I have literally laid down and immediately fallen asleep and slept the whole flight without fail every time. And it's like I'm time traveling. It's the closest I'll ever get to time travel. And I can sleep without getting that stomach pain, but that's so weird. Let me know if you guys have ever experienced that hunching over on your tray table. Sleeping on planes causes stomach pain. Joe Rogan, someone get on this like, what the ****? Somebody said what are your travel necessities? Lip balm and a lot of it. Like probably three of them. Advil and Tylenol. Because I get headaches when I travel. A lot of moisturizing skin products, moisturizing face masks. You know, hydrating skin oils. Hydrating facial moisturizers like whatever the **** hydrating products you can find? That's key. And because I just get really dry when I'm on a plane or when I'm traveling in general, even if I'm like in a car for a long time, I feel like just the AC blowing on my face for hours or whatever makes me dry. And a little bag of nuts I never I usually travel with a little bag of nuts without fail, just in case. You know what I mean? I'm trying to think if I have anything else. I don't know. Trying to think I have any travel hacks, but I'm really not that savvy. I'm excited to travel again. I'm excited to travel again. As much as I think I am a homebody, actually at my core. I still am very excited to travel again. I think traveling is good for me because it kind of. Gets me out of my LA rut because I get into these LA ruts where I just get so ******* uninspired and depressed here because. I'm feel like I'm living in social media and I've talked about this before, but it's like. LA is such a. YouTube, Instagram. Influencer place. There's just so many of them here. And I am one of them that I get kind of depressed here because it's like it. It just feels like I'm on Instagram all day when I'm walking around like I I see somebody. That I know at least once a day, and I hate that you know what I'm saying? And it's also uninspiring at times cause it's like it feels like you're living in the Internet when you live in LA sometimes. And. So I just am excited to be able to travel again in a way that feels. That, uh, in a way that's, you know, a little bit easier and a little bit safer and a little bit, you know. You know what I'm saying? I don't have to explain, but anyway, I hope you enjoyed this episode. Kind of random, but I hope you enjoyed it anyway. I love you guys. Thank you for listening.
