Enjoying Los Angeles with a stranger I’ve met to travel the world with

LA – home to the rich and famous! Read my next story about our great time in Los Angeles!

We were excited when we arrived and first set eyes on Hollywood Boulevard and the walk of fame. We spent a while looking at all the famous names etched in stars on the ground, sadly Patrick Swayze had died the previous day so his star was covered with flowers, photos and candles. Lots of actors were dressed up in character costume walking up and down the sidewalk posing for pics. We came across the Chinese Theatre with its legendary hand and footprints of the stars. These were sights I had seen on TV so it was really surreal actually being here!

We only had two days in LA so wanted to make the most of it! We were desperate to see all the main sights so without much research we booked a tour that said it included all the best bits. We were crammed onto this bus with people from all over the world. The air con only worked at the back of the bus so we all took turns to sit at the rear!

First stotime in los angelesp was the Hollywood sign, from what we could make of it, it was so far away! We then drove past the movie star homes of Tom Cruise, Christina Aguilera, Michael Jackson to name but a few. This was great but obviously for security they have huge gates so you could only see their roofs! A lot of people were grumpy by this point so the driver took us to Rodeo Drive where we were able to get off the bus and get a proper look at the shop that Julia Roberts got kicked out of in the movie ‘Pretty Woman’. Our last stop was Santa Monica and Venice Beach where flat tums and six packs are the norm.

That night we thought we’d test out the LA nightlife, a guy in our hostel recommended a bar so we followed. We met a good group, the girls drank cocktails and the boys smoked shisha pipes well into the night.

The next day, a little worse for wear and on one of the hottest days of the year, we thought it would be a good idea to walk to the Hollywood sign so we could get some proper pics. We’d read we had to head north on Cahuenga time in los angelesBoulevard and hike into the hills. It wasn’t easy it was hot hot hot! We eventually made it and was so worth it as the views were incredible.

We walked back through the Hollywood Hills stopping to gawp at the posh houses, how the other half live! We walked for miles and miles, Ellen who was much fitter than me wasn’t even breaking a sweat but I was struggling, my toe was bleeding, my legs were on fire and I needed food. We came across this place that did the biggest pizza slices you ever saw. It’s true what they say about the American diet, the portions are HUGE!

We’d heard people either loved LA or loathed it, everyone was plastic, it was busy and there was too much traffic. I can’t say I loved it but we both had a good time and it’s definitely a place to visit and tick off the list!

And next stop – Las Vegas!

    Donald Trump is going to save America and stop all of these 3rd world immigrants from turning America into a 3rd world craphole. If you are against President Trump, then you should be ashamed of yourself. If you support President Trump? Then God bless you. http://www.GodTrump.blogspot.com

    Did you know that if you stare at the sun for 15 minutes a day, that you won’t need to eat food anymore? You will literally gain superhuman abilities and feel like an enlightened person. Obviously you would need to stare at the sun during the early morning or late evening when the sun is at it’s lowest brightness. But NASA did a study and proved that people who engage in this sun-staring practice achieve a state of high spiritual and mental enlightenment.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!http://www.BoycottBitches.comI am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
