It is Tuesday morning as we wake in Venice, Los Angeles. Today is our last day of our 5 week visit to the United States. Cities we have visited along the way are Manhattan in New York, Washington DC, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles, California. It has been an amazing trip but our thoughts now start to turn to home. Continue reading
Yesterday I took Alex around Venice, California on his own personal Doors tour. The Doors I am talking about are “The Doors”, as in the band… u know… The Doors… “common baby light my fire”.
Today is another sunny day and Alex and I are off to explore the more well known Los Angeles areas including Hollywood (Chinese Theatre and Walk of Fame) and Beverley Hills (Rodeo Drive…baby).
Alex and I are holidaying in Venice, California, home of The Doors.
So, with that in mind, today I am taking Alex on his own personal Doors tour and he doesn’t even really like The Doors…. no way!
Luckily for us, I love The Doors!
Today’s forecast is mid 20’s and Alex and I are set to do some retail therapy at the Citadel Outlet.
Alex and I are near the end of our USA holiday, finishing our trip with a 4 night stay in Venice Beach in sunny California.
Sure enough, we wake to a sparkling blue sky as we look from our window on the 4th floor of the Cadillac Hotel.
Yesterday Alex and I finished our time in San Francisco, having visited many of its famous attractions including the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.
Today is a new day with a new city to explore. Alex and I are off to see the sights and the lights of Los Angeles (aka LA). To get to LA we are booked on an 8:00am flight with Virgin America. Continue reading
Today Alex and I will visit 3 top attractions in San Francisco.
First, we will take a ride on the famous San Francisco Cable Car.
Second, we will walk Lombard Street (aka the crookedest street in the world).
Last but not least, we will walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. Alex, put on your walking shoes… its time to hit the pavement. Continue reading
Alex and I are in San Francisco and today we are heading out to explore Golden Gate Park. Golden Gate Park is San Francisco’s equivalent of New York’s Central Park, only larger.
Golden Gate Park covers an area of 1,017 acres so Alex and I need to get a hat and our most comfortable walking shoes. Given we have one small backpack of clothes each, our most comfortable shoes would also actually be our only walking shoes. Continue reading
