Relaxing in LA (Continued)

Summer is upon us! It is now time to embrace the long days and summer nights. And there’s no better place to relax than Santa Monica — where the water is warm, the people are friendly, and the sunshine is bright! Our Student Ambassador, Jacopo, knows what it means to unwind and just enjoy life. Let’s see what he has to say about relaxing in LA! At some point you’ll probably feel annoyed or lost here, in this big city far away from your home. It happened to me a couple of times. How can you go through this situation? I can tell you something that I usually do. In Italy I used to walk a lot because it takes me away from everything that is bothering me. And this is exactly what I do here. Last time that I went to the beach for a walk, I went to the Santa Monica beach by myself. Just me, the wind and the sea. You would not believe how much my mood changed immediately after that. A sense of peace overtook me and everything was just fine. Just walking and watching the sunset! Trust me, the sunset in LA is something breathtaking. My advice for you all is to take a moment for yourself. Doesn’t matter how, it just has to be your moment. I’m sure that after this you’ll be grateful!!

Luckily, Los Angeles has some pretty amazing places to help you unwind. Our Student Ambassador, Im, has some suggestions for us below! Hello, guys! I am Im Yun Seop from Korea, Seoul. Today, I want to talk about relaxing in LA. To be honest, not all of your time in LA is happy. I am pretty sure sometimes you are overwhelmed because of studies or relationships with your friends. Even though I am sporty and extroverted, from time to time I just want to be alone to organize my thoughts and complicated feelings. So! I am going to tell you guys my two methods for relaxing. I think the best way is going to have great food. The most interesting thing about Los Angeles is that there is a great variety in restaurants. You can eat whatever you want; for example, Japanese, Korean, Turkish, Italian, etc. The place that I’ve been to most recently is Japanese fusion udon restaurant. There is always a super long line, but this just means that the place is awesome. Japanese friends of mine agreed that this place is most similar to real Japanese food. The name of this restaurant is Marugame Monzo in Little Tokyo. The most famous menu item is cream udon. I know that to some people it is a bad combination, but the taste is amazing. Your can taste western things and eastern things together, and it is also a great idea to go there with your friends and share! I … Read more
