Phoenix, Arizona, USA
For me, one of the ultimate American food meals to eat is awesome BBQ - when the meat is smoked perfectly so it slides off the bone, and the flavor is packed full of insane smokiness. My brother in law Derek had already been to Little Miss BBQ, but it was my first time to eat here, and I was so excited.
I arrived a little over an hour early to get in line, but luckily as soon as you pull up you get a number so that you don’t actually have to wait in line the entire time.
Scott and the entire crew at Little Miss BBQ are amazing, and you can immediately feel their passion and their genuine love for what they do and for the people they get to interact with everyday as a result of serving the best BBQ in Phoenix! Scott and his wife have an interesting and amazing grassroots history and start to their BBQ business. They first started making BBQ at home just because they loved doing it. Eventually they started competing in American BBQ competitions. At the beginning things didn’t go so well, but they kept going and perfecting their BBQ recipes and eventually started to win some of the competitions. Eventually they opened Little Miss BBQ, and it’s one of the best BBQ spots you’ll ever eat at.
So after getting the full tour of the restaurant and all the smoked meat, it was about time to open. You line up outside and the actual inside is quite small - most people either takeaway or eat outside.
I wanted to try a little of everything, so we got a giant tray of smoked BBQ meat including pork ribs, pulled pork, turkey, sausage, brisket, and beef ribs, with sides. Total price for the entire tray came to $92.70 - that was a lot of meat!
Thanks to my brother in law Derek for coming out to eat as well. We started with the beef ribs, and those are the best of the best. The meat falls apart and it was so insanely juicy and flavorful. The BBQ brisket will also blow you mind with its massive meaty flavor and juiciness. Finally my other top meat was the sausage, including jalapeno and a mix of meat and bacon.
Lastly, you have to eat your American food bbq feast with their famous pecan pie. And even though I’m not into sweets, a few bites at the end was amazing.
Little Miss BBQ is a phenomenal BBQ restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona. Not only will the quality and taste of the meat blow you away, but the passion of Scott and the entire crew are so genuine and so friendly, and that’s what makes it so good.
Thank you for watching this BBQ video!

Americans, help! Which are the best things to do in California? Top picks for OUR honeymoon in Cali!
Americans, help! Which are the best things to do in California? Top picks for OUR honeymoon in Cali! SPECIAL DISCOUNT! Airbnb CODE: 25£ discount on your next trip! ----Use this link and save 10% with Booking.com! ----
What should we do on the West Coast of the United States if we are going for our honeymoon in Cali, especially in Los Angeles? What do we really have to do on the West Coast? Ha wanna stay only in Las Vegas, I wanna stay only in Los Angeles... so we need to find a way!
I am doing this video because I kind of failed planning our US honeymoon - California and Los Angeles - and I need your help!
If you have ever been on the West Coast of The United States or if you are living there, I def need to ask for your kind help!
By the way, I have noticed that many of my subscribers are from The United States, a big part of them exactly from California, so I am sure many of you can help me out with this.
So, we wanna have a real honeymoon in Cali, we wanna find a great accommodation in Los Angeles and that hopefully will last one month. From here we wanna travel and explore the best places in the area: we wanna stay only on the West Coast of the United States, especially in California but we wanna visit a few days Las Vegas and San Diego, the Grand Canion and so on! If you know any great places where to go or any other things we have to do on the West Coast, if you have some awesome accommodation ideas or if you have any kind of advice, please leave me a comment here.
So, as I was saying, my husband, Mihai is counting on me that I will come with the perfect Californian plan... but I can't find the perfect one! So I also need to count on someone - so my first tough was: I have to count on you, guys!
After we’ve got married, we have decided to have a honeymoon in the United States because we’ve never been there and California always was the dream destination for us.
Planning a trip to the States is much complicated than I was thinking it will be, especially if you are planning it to be the best trip of your life... maybe.
I still can’t believe it is already almost the end of March. A few months ago I was almost sure that by now I will have the plane tickets and the exact plan of our honeymoon but, to be honest… I don’t have it! Everybody is asking me around: when are you planning travel to California? how long are you going to stay there? Are you going only to Cali or you wanna see other States as well? And so on. But, I have no freakin’ idea yet! That’s why I am doing this video!
Also, I hope it will be helpful for other honeymooners as well, which are in the same situation as I am because California and The States can look really huge and complicated if you have never left Europe before, like us.
So my main question is: when do you think is the best month to go to California? Obviously, we wanna have only sunny days but we don’t really want it to be too hot, of course, and we wanna be able to swim in the ocean as well. We were thinking to choose between June and August... So, let me know which one is your favourite Californian month!
The West Coast Area is so huge and I’ve started a brainstorming because I really didn’t want to miss anything important. And after reading many blogs or watching loads of videos regarding the best things to do in California, I ended up with OUR top best things to do in California. But if you know something better to do or if I missed anything important, PLEASE leave me your comment!

So, which are the best places in Cali?
1. Santa Monica and Venice Beach for sure but please tell us which are the best beaches for surfing in LA?
2. The coolest honeymoon idea I’ve found on the internet was the Malibu Wine Safari! How nice should it be to see the giraffe from the movie The Hangover while drinking fancy wine?
3. Why are you focusing only on ONE movie when ALL the movies? The studios are there! A visit to Universal Studios should be great!
4. Hike on the Hollywood sign one day, even if sounds so cliche! Watch the sunset over the LA from there.
5. Near the sign is The Observatory and there was filmed that musical, La La Land.
6. Cliche or now, Hollywood Walk Of Fame!
7. The Beverly Hills Boulevard and Melrose Avenue for celebrities spotting while drinking coffees at those fancy cafes.
8. Disneyland! Sacrifice one day for that!
9. Go up at the level 70 for a ride at the SkySpace Slide in that huge skyscraper!
We are waiting for more suggestions for you guys, please help us to have the best honeymoon ever!
So let me know which are the best things to do in California? and which are your TOP picks for a honeymoon in Cali!

My life in North Korea vs South Korea

Catch me and meet me during my travels:
Free $34 AirBnb credit for your next trip:
One year ago I went on a strictly guided 7 day-tour in North Korea where they took away my passport and did not allow me to explore anything on my own. North Korea was definitely the weirdest country I had ever visited and throughout that trip I kept wondering what life was like in the neighboring South Korea, because it used to be the same country just over 60 years ago.
To answer my questions, this year I traveled to South Korea and made this video, where I compare my time in the North and my time in the South. I still have a lot of questions about the whole situation, but one thing was clear - the daily lives of the Korean people couldn't be any more different than they are right now.
My favorite books about North Korea:
Dear Leader by Jang Jin Sung -
Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden -
Nothing To Envy by Barbara Demick -
1984 by George Orwell (I couldn't believe how similar some things in North Korea felt to the ones in the book) -

I want to thank my friends Donghyuk Shin, Vytautas Jašauskas, Urtė Laukaitytė and Leeann Roybal-Shin for their continuous support and helping making this video. I could not have done it without them!
