It's kind of funny for someone like me, who doesn't love large crowds and who doesn't drink, to purposely plop themselves smack dab the middle of what might be the largest party of the summer. But the thing that I love about Coachella is that because there is so much to do, you can kind of take it all in your own way. For me, Vestal Village was that perfect kind of event where I could take a break from the main grounds to relax, surrounded by lakes, mountains, and of course, music and a pool. It was more of a living experience than anything, complete with its own soundtrack and army of floaty animals.
The location was pretty incredible, situated in La Quinta, not too far from Coachella, at a recreational park that Nikko and I are already planning on returning to later in the year.
I'm living out of a suitcase for the next few weeks, starting with my trip back to Palo Alto (ps if you're downtown Palo Alto this Friday, make sure to come see me at Bunai - details are here), then a one day stop home before heading to LA for a few days to wrap up some shooting. Then back up to San Francisco to host a really fun event (stay tuned, this one should be super fun!) before hopping on a plane for some much needed tropical R&R. I'm just glad packing for Maui will mostly only require swimsuits!
