Kate’s Travel Rating System

Pharmacy2U is the UK's leading NHS approved canadian pharmacy and also provides a confidential private online doctor service. Regulated by GPhC and the CQC. I always explore my destinations far beyond the touristy parts of town and often through the eyes of native friends who can show me around. I am a local traveler. And just as there are all kinds of locals, there are all kinds of local travel experiences to be had. It just depends on which sides of a destination one chooses to discover.

Rediscovering Los Angeles with my Fellow Locals

go to site Living in one place for many years, gives us the impression that we have a holistic view of our own hometown. But the truth of the matter is our experiences, our family, our friends, and even the address of our home all impact our understanding of our cities. And I am currently learning this lesson in a big way. Last year, I moved back to my hometown of Los Angeles after living in New York for five years. At the time, I braced myself for some intense culture shock. Despite the upgrades in weather and certain facets of life – I was concerned that the LA I knew would not hold my attention as had New York. I am not going to next tell…
