nick and laura


Nick & I moved to Ventura, California, after living in London for 6 years. Nick grew up in Southern California and went to university at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, and I spent a lot of time traveling in Northern California as a kid. We have traveled and continue to travel extensively throughout California and want to share our knowledge and excitement about this place with our readers. It’s truly paradise in California.
