Universal CityWalk

Universal CityWalk

This weekend we had the opportunity to relax. For the first time in over a year, we had a weekend where we were not thinking about the wedding. It’s crazy for us to think that wedding planning will no longer be a part of our daily routine. We asked ourselves, what are we going to do with so much time on our hands? The answer was naturally adventures, starting with a date at Universal CityWalk.

Universal CityWalk is an outdoor shopping center that leads you into Universal Studios. The best part, you do not have to purchase ticket to Universal to enjoy CityWalk. It’s like Downtown Disney (or Disney Springs in Disney World). It’s also the main setting for Justin Bieber’s “Baby” music video — just a fun fact.

On a bright note, the sun was out today! It was a nice reminder that summer is in full swing. However, that also meant that taking pictures was somewhat challenging. It was either glaring sun or darkness of shade — either requiring sunglasses. There was no in between, so we took a couple of different shots.

After briefly taking in the sights and some sun, we went straight to CityWalk’s signature theater, Universal Cinema AMC, to catch a showing of Avengers Endgame‘s MCU successor, Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Tell me, have you ever been to CityWalk? Where should we go on our next adventure? When you were “thirteen, did you have your first love, [that] woke you up daily, don’t need no Starbucks?”

Aquarium of the Pacific

This Memorial Day Weekend was extra special, not just because it was my first three-day weekend with the startup, but because it was my wife-elect’s birthday! Her adventure of choice: The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA.

After surprising her with birthday cake, treats, and a present, we were on our way to explore marine life. It was a gorgeous sunny day in Los Angeles with clear skies and (for once) barely any traffic. To our delight, we were at the harbor within an hour!

We also decided to take the Nikon DSLR I gave her for Christmas last year, and we couldn’t be any happier with the results! It allowed us to take some incredible shots! But it also taught us just how difficult it is to be an animal photographer: very.

By the end of the day we were exhausted, but beyond thankful for the opportunity to sea so many amazing creatures up close. We even got to pet a stingray! Yeah, pet. If you are ever in town, we highly recommend the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Tell me, have you ever been to an aquarium? What is your favorite sea creature and why? Would you like to pet a fish, or do you prefer to observe from behind a glass?
