About Lauren

So, tell me: what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?Lauren Somewhere

I want to explore. I want to learn. I want to create. Through Lauren Somewhere, I do just that.

Hey there, my name is Lauren! I’m a freelance writer with a huge passion for travel. I grew up in a small Northern California town most notably known as the “Garlic Capital of the World” and I spent my college years in sunny San Luis Obispo near California’s Central Coast. Clearly, I’m a California girl through and through.

I started this blog in June 2016 after spending eight fantastic months in India post-college graduation — my longest trip to date so far. Traveling for such an extended period of time gave me a renewed appreciation for the places back home I had previously neglected to explore. Who says you need a plane ticket to see the world when the world is in your backyard? That’s the beauty and benefit of living in a culturally diverse state like California.

If you love to discover quirky, off-beat travel destinations and your heart leaps for joy at the opportunity to learn anything culture or history related, then you’ll feel right at home here. This is a space to relish in the magic of local exploration, as well as a guide for curious visitors to the golden state. Consider this blog your ultimate travel guide to eccentric and kooky locations throughout California and beyond.

If you need to get in touch with me, if you have any travel questions or you’d like me to write something for your site/publication, please email me at laurensomewhereblog@gmail.com. Also, don’t forget to add me on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on all my adventures. Thanks for visiting!
