Welcome to Small World This Is! I’m Julia, and I cannot wait to show you around my home state.
Growing up in San Francisco, and later living in cities all around California, I created this space to help fellow travelers plan their own trips in a state that I love. From city itineraries to how to plan a road trip down the iconic Highway 1, this website provides plenty of 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.
The girl behind the blog
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 will travel for food, and love exploring new places through local culinary highlights.
I also am a freelance writer that focuses on travel, culture and food writing, and you can find my portfolio here.
