party tornado on la playa

we do this thing we like to call the party tornado. it involves sucking random people in to our whirlwind of fun. on this particular beach day, our happy group of 7 gradually collected a group of british people, a canadian, and some swiss girls. because happiness is better when it's shared. and so is tequila ;)

you'd never guess from looking at these pictures that most of us either met each other that day or the day before... one of my favorite things about traveling is making memories with new people who you pretend you've known a lifetime. because you know those moments together are fleeting, so you make sure to make the most of them while they're there. to share secrets and hug tightly and say how you feel and fall a little bit in love. even if just for a day.
