I’m carrying on my California trip today and it’s most starry city is up next. You can read my entries for San Francisco and Santa Barbara if you want a catch up!
I landed at Union Station on Christmas eve and eventually checked in to a motel I’d booked. Feeling slightly lonely thinking about what my family and friends were up to, I was relieved when I hit it off up with a couple of guys sat around the pool and we chatted and drank long into the night.
The motel I was in was a nightmare, not so much for the rooms or facilities but I had booked into one of the dodgiest areas of LA, the security guard refused to let me out on my own! Matt was horrified when I sent him the address where he was meeting me! Let’s just say I think I should have invested a little more on a better located hotel and researched my areas a lot better…. (something I specialise in now!) I think Santa Monica would be high up on my list next time.
Anyway Matt finally arrived a couple of days later and we were ready to explore the City of Angels.
I’ve never really had a huge craving to go back to L.A until recently. Seeing so many of my favourite bloggers recommendations, the amazing restaurants and café culture, the year round sunshine, beaches and shopping is making me crave another LA break.
