Aug 20, 2019 - Hollywood

Today we hit the highlight of Gabby and Charlie’s wish list for the holiday; going to see the Hollywood sign. We walked down Hollywood Boulevard, along the walk of fame and the Chinese theatre. We then found a good viewpoint for the Hollywood sign. After lunch we went to Ripley’s “Believe it or not” museum which we all found fun. In the early evening we headed in to the Hollywood hills up to the LA Observatory. From here you have a great view of the Hollywood sign but unfortunately this wasn’t lit up and it was already dusk when we got...

Jan 13, 2019 - Heading West

Day 5. Sunday 13th Jan. A bit more sleep last night but still up & about by 5.30am so decided to head down to the coast & stop somewhere along the way for breakfast. Nice & quiet to start off but the traffic increased as the day wore on. We headed down Santa Monica boulevard again & picked up Highway 101, the Pacific Coast Highway that runs all the way up the coast to San Francisco & beyond up to Seattle. From Santa Monica we passed through places like Malibu Beach with the surfers out on the sea. We stopped about 7am for breakfast...

Jan 12, 2019 - Farewell To Roy

Day 4. Saturday 12th Jan. That didn’t work! It rained during the night which didn’t help & we still woke up about 2am. Forced ourselves to stay in bed until 6.30am before getting up. During the night I had been thinking about the phone guys deal & decided that the advantages to us on this trip by having unlimited phone & data would be worth it if my understanding of it was correct. Unfortunately the store didn’t open until 10am so we had to wait a bit before I could find out. When they opened I went through it all again with him & for $109...

Aug 12, 2017 - Universal Studios and Diana Krall....Hollywood Bowl

Celinda and I decided to do one big tourist event .....Universal Studios which is located a few blocks from Hanna Barbera where I used to work in the 70's and very close to my old apartment which I think has been knocked down! Lots of new roads! Universal now has Harry Potter World with a fantastic ride called Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. It was excellent. The effects on all the rides were quite exceptional incorporating 3 and 4D. In Shrek 4D the spiders popped out towards us visually and there were sensors under the seats that...

Sep 10, 2015 - Where dreams are made

The day began with a beautiful walk with Sandy. I am use to seeing the sun rise over the ocean but this was still beautiful. We decided to join the horrible traffic to go see the homes of the stars. This is a one time deal because the traffic is soon bad and we could never parallel park the way these people do, bumper to bumper. I have no idea how they get their cars in and out. So we paid $15 for a parking garage by Hollywood Blvd. The tour was interesting. Some homes are big but some are not much larger than my own. They also seem to...

May 6, 2015 - Last day in LA - non eventful..

Hi again, So this post is for the 6th of May which was a Wednesday. It wasn't a very dramatic day so it won't be very long. Had the same breakfast (you know the drill). But today I had kind of a sleep in because yesterday was such a big day we didn't get home until midnight so I was out of the hotel from 8.45am to about 12.45am >.< so sleep in was until 9.45 am because I couldn't miss free breakfast! I was expecting Another girl to show up in my room while I was out that day. I had a double bed room so she was on the same Contiki as me....

May 5, 2015 - Warner Bros Studios and TV Taping!!!!!****

Hi all! Sorry I didn't post yesterday, I didn't get home until midnight and I was just too tired! So yesterday (5th of May) was the most amazing day I've had in a really long time.. Even better than the day before haha. I spent 13 hours at Warner brothers studios. I know that sounds like s really long time but actually it went really fast. I started my day with the same breakfast that I've had for 4 days now. It then took me 1 hour and 45 minutes on public transport to get 25mins by car and I was late for the tour that I had paid $250...

May 4, 2015 - Hollywood Boulevard 𯘍

Hi everyone! Today was HUGE again. I did so much in one day but today was really great all round! I did Hollywood boulevard and if you don't know what that is GO look it up :) Breakfast was boring, exact same food as yesterday because they don't offer us anything else and I'm dealing with what I was given because it's FREE! On Hollywood boulevard almost every car is high end luxury car, it's AMAZING. For a while I just couldn't take my eyes off the road because they're such high end cars like BMW, AUDI, FERRARI, MERCEDES, high end jeeps...

Jun 1, 2014 - Los Angeles

On 31st we landed at Los Angeles and were driven to the hotel Lewes Hollywood. We realised later that we are staying at the heart of Hollywood. 2 mins away from the walk of fame, the Dolby where famous Oscars are held. Had a general feel of the city and around walking around the hotel area. Enjoyed the food in the adjacent complex with lots of hustle and bustle. Tourists literally crazy on the footprints and hand prints of famous Stars in front of Dolby and touching, feeling and picturing them. It looks like festivity - non stop.

BHUTAN A SHORT VISIT

May 1, 2014 - Day 7 - Universal Studios

Today we headed to Universal Studios. We had the best day. Initially when the bus driver said he was dropping us at 10am and picking us up at 6.30pm, I didn't imagine we would be able to fill the whole day but we well and truly did and could have done more. We started at the Despicable Me ride which was awesome. After that, Joel and Caitlin drenched themselves in water at a Minion play park. On to House of Horrors which Maddy hated and Caitlin loved (Mum screamed a few times). On to Shrek ride which frightened Joely because of some 3D...

Aug 16, 2013 - Around Hollywood

DAY 6 Everyone a little slow this morning so it was around 11.00 before all ready to make a move. Megzy had very cleverly downloaded a cd of an audio tour of Hollywood which we decided to try out. Guy rambled on a little in the introduction but was somewhat vague when it came to actual directions. From prior visits Megzy managed to navigate us to Paramount Studios where we again tried out the audio tour. The guy just waffled on continually that it would have been better at walking pace. By the time we had done several blockies and made our...

Aug 15, 2013 - A Day at the Movies - Universal Style

DAY 5 Up at 7.30 to meet at 8 for breakfast. All a little bleary eyed after a late night but we will manage. Only a quick 15 minute drive into the hills to Universal Studios. Being a good girl today and hiring a mobility scooter. Glad we got there early as I got one of the first scooters to go out and it proved a back saver. Some very excited travelers entered the park after the obligatory picture under the Universal globe out front. Megzy was rapt when the Keystone Cop just inside the gate said hello then said “I found him!” in reference...
