My name is Louisa. I am 24 and recently moved from Southern California to Seattle with my dog, Nico. I love absurd sunglasses, traveling and exploring, wandering art museums and consignment stores, climbing mountains, drinking wine and pretending I know about photography.
I began this blog to chronicle a three-month trip that began in London and ended in Beirut during the summer of 2012, during which time I researched my ancestry in Scotland, worked tirelessly in Switzerland, and fell in love with the beautiful Mediterranean in Lebanon.
The first words I could write as a child were “Love Louisa.” As the baby of the family, I was anxious to share my newfound skills with everybody and so wrote these two words… everywhere. On drawings for my family, papers from school, and all the couches and counters in the house, in indelible ink. It has been my trademark for 20 years, or so, now, and the joke will probably never get old.
