Oct News 2020 with We Said Go Travel:

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, I have been in Los Angeles since March 9, 2020. That is 234 days. I have to say that my birthday this month was much better than I expected. Thank you to all of the friends and family who called, sent text messages and shared their love on social media.

I have a birthday wish! Please watch, comment and like my videos and subscribe to my YouTube channel! I now have over 1.25 million views and my next goal to have 3,000 subscribers! On my birthday, I had only 123 to go! Thanks for making my wish come true!

My second wish is for you to VOTE!

Thank you to the Jewish Journal for putting my column IN PRINT twice recently! Special thanks to Brett Barenholz for always looking out for me and saving me print copies!

My comments about Elul leading up to Rosh Hashannah were in print on page 28 of the Oct 2-8 edition.

“During the month leading up to Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur, I think about what has happened in the year that is ending. As I have this chance to reflect on what went well and what I want in the new year, I set goals. During the pandemic, I have had to pivot and write more about books as I have not been traveling. What will you focus on?”

My article about Los Angeles Teens Changing the World: Tikkun Olam was in print on page 26 of the October 9-15 edition. I was honored to be a mentor in The Julie Beren Platt Teen Innovation Grants which are part of the ​Jewish Federation of Los Angeles’ LA Jewish Teen Initiative (LAJTI).

Thank you to Canadian Affair for interviewing me about my experience on Rocky Mountaineer.

Lisa from We Said Go Travel explained how she learnt a lot about the history of the railroad on her train journey: “While travelling in luxurious comfort on the Rocky Mountaineer train between Vancouver and Banff, I loved learning the history of the railroad and seeing the spiral tunnels, Hells Gate and the last spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) at Craigellachie, British Columbia from November 7, 1885.”

Enjoy my video of the waves at Santa Monica Beach. I filmed with my new LGV60ThinQ phone. I took many videos of my recent stay at Hotel Erwin at Venice Beach. New videos coming soon!

THANK YOU Twitter! I love getting balloons on my birthday!
