We had the good fortune of connecting with Angela Hermida and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Angela, what are you inspired by?
There are many things that inspire me. The beauty of this world is one of the main ones. It can be found everywhere, going for a walk, discovering a new city, finding a hidden gem in nature. It’s always a breath of fresh air, you just need to open your eyes. Something that also inspires me is visualizing what the person I want to be looks like and living as she would. This is a powerful tool to stay focus and inspired.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a travel content creator. You can find me on Instagram as @unfamiliar.land where I share all the tips and tricks you should know before visiting a place, trip itineraries and unique places to stay while traveling. I’m very proud of where I’m today. It hasn’t been an easy journey. There are so many things to learn and new updates every day. You just have to practice and keep learning; it’s important to go for it and don’t be afraid.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If you are visiting San Diego, you should start your morning having breakfast at Morning Glory in Little Italy. Then, head to Balboa Park and enjoy the day visiting the museums, the Japanese Friendship Garden and the Botanical Building. Have dinner at Craft and Commerce and finish your day at Seaport Village where you can see the Unconditional Surrender statue. The following day, start with a light breakfast at Better Buzz in La Jolla, visit the seals in La Jolla cove, go to the beach and have fun kayaking or going on a boat. Have lunch at Cody’s, spend the rest of the day visiting Old Town and finish you day with Mexican dinner.
