Coachella Dreaming

If I wasn't living in Korea I would definitely be visiting Planet Coachella this weekend. It is one of the most amazing places I have been to. Last year was my second Coachella and it felt even more complete than the first. If you've never been to a music festival, you might not know what I am talking about. If you've been to other festivals, you might have an understanding of where I am coming from. And if you've been to Coachella, this post is for you!

Planet Coachella
We had to wait in line for 3 hours but it worked to our advantage. We made friends with people from England, Australia, Canada and California before we even got into the festival. We sprawled across about 5 campsites and for those 4 nights we partied, danced and loved life together. 

 Waterloo crew
We shared not only great times but also Cheez-Its <3, Sparkz, Goon and Tecate!
 We spent our days running around from band to beer tent to Camp Shred to band to beer tent to Camp Shred and somehow managed to mostly stick together and find each other amongst the 75,000 people at the festival.

"Every festival needs a Mawby"
Camp Shred mess!
Luckily the party didn't end there! We spent 3 nights in LA and were able to meet up with the different groups of friends we made at the festival. Amongst the best memories are bonfires on LA beaches, doing yoga with Natalie, Joe and Jimmy in their rented Venice Beach Apartment, running into Jeremy and dancing with him to Steve Aoki (the surprise guest) at Cinespace and getting tattooed at High Voltage, where LA Ink is filmed.

Haha, look at those tired faces!

Jeremy and I looking our best

I really wasn't in that much pain
Goodbye breakfast at Ihop. So tired. 
 I don't know if these pictures captured the moments that we all experienced on Planet Coachella in April 2010 but pictures rarely do. I hope everyone who makes it to Coachella this weekend has the best time and I know I will make it back there someday in the near future. If you've got some extra money laying around next spring, make good decisions and travel to Planet Coachella!!
