Welcome to Small World This Is!
Why this blog was created
As a native Californian, I created this space to help fellow travelers plan their own trips to California. There is so much to see in this state and it can be overwhelming to know where to start. From city itineraries to how to plan a road trip down the coast, this website provides plenty of valuable resources to make the most of your time in the Golden State. I also want to inspire others to travel to lesser known areas in the state, like the stunning Central Coast (one of my favorite destinations).
The girl behind the blog
I’m Julia, a proud native San Franciscan. I am a California girl through and through, having lived in various cities in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Sacramento and now sunny Orange County. I’ve also lived in Montana, Boston, Krakow, and Izmir, Turkey, but have always come home to California. I am a big food enthusiast and love exploring places through their local culinary highlights.
I also am a freelance writer that focuses on travel, culture and food writing, and you can find my portfolio here.
Other things I love: popcorn, dark chocolate, dogs, and my monthly subscription to LA Magazine.
