    Sleeping in LA - Part One

    December 21, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We had such great intentions and we really tried. But we failed.

    The problem was that we flew all through the day and nobody slept, so when we landed at 6am local time, we were already exhausted.

    But the kids were so excited to be here, and had made long lists of places they wanted to go and were determined to make the most of this one day in the US.

    After spending an eternity in the immigration queue, we headed to The Hotel Jeremy on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood - a beautifully appointed, spacious hotel that’s probably the best kept secret in LA.

    Showered, dropped bags and headed to the iHOP for the eggs and pancake breakfast we’d all been craving. As good as we remembered!

    Next we dropped Mitch at the nearby Guitar Centre and the girls and I continued onto The Grove - an upmarket, outdoor shopping mall where we had intended to stay all afternoon.

    But it became clear - after visiting just 2 shops - that the girls has no energy or stamina at all and had to be in bed. So we caught a cab back to Mitch and all returned to the hotel so the kids could sleep while I enjoyed the sunshine by the pool.

    Dinner with the Martins - LA Part 2

    December 21, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    I finally woke the kids just before 5pm and we headed to Kristen and Jorge’s house in Burbank - a nice suburb of LA.

    It’s been so many years since we saw each other but we took up exactly where we had left off - and it was lovely to introduce our kids to one another.

    We went for a drive around Burbank admiring the Christmas decorations on all the houses - one with its own radio station that made the lights dance to the beat of the music.

    Starving, we headed for In-n-Out burger for dinner followed by an American candy store. All fun and new.

    And then back to the hotel for very jet lagged bodies to sleep.

    Last day in LA

    January 11, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    We slept in - everyone slept well. And then a repeat of our first day; iHOP for breakfast (we even ordered the same meals!) then dropped Mitch at the Guitar Centre while we visited Glossier (make up) for Alex, followed by Urban Outfitters- then met Mitch for lunch at In ‘N’ Out burger for lunch .. a record shop for Mitch.. Santa Monica (battling traffic) for a quick visit, then back to the hotel to collect bags and head to Emma Issacs’ house for a visit.

    We all went out for dinner to a very cool warehouse style restaurant on La Brea called Rebublique before racing to the airport - running so late the check in was already closed when we arrived. But we made it and settled down for the overnight flight home.

    Charley was the big surprise - trapezes, eating, sleeping and even going to the toilet by herself during the flight!

    Los Angeles

    August 30, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

    Wir haben es geschafft. In 10 Tagen von Naples nach LA zu fahren. Das erste was wir uns angeguckt haben war Long Beach. Ich hab mir den Strand echt schöner vorgestellt. Er war dreckig und man war direkt am Hafen. Nicht so wirklich schön. 😐
    Wir fuhren die ganze Zeit am Meer entlang und sind am Redondo Beach baden gewesen. Die Wellen waren echt hoch und wir hatten unseren Spaß. Nicht weit von uns entfernt sprangen dann noch sogar Delphine hin und her. 🐬
    Weiter ging es nach Santa Monica. Auf dem Santa Monica Pier liefen wir lang und haben uns den Pacific Park angeschaut. 🎡🎢
    Wir fuhren nach Beverly Hills und haben einen Burger gegessen. 🍔
    Es wurde Abend und wir sind auf dem Hollywood Blvd gelaufen. (Walk of Fame)
    Am Starbucks haben wir Wlan gezogen und hatten echt Glück das wir nicht von Auto überfahren wurden.
    Es sind zwei junge Frauen von der Straße abgekommen und sind gegen einen Wasserhydranten gefahren. Und wir standen genau dahinter. 😳
    Auf dem Weg zum Auto haben uns dann Leute angequatscht und wollten das wir ein Persönlichkeitstest machen. Erst meinten wir Nein und dann haben wir doch Ja gesagt weil uns eine Deutsche dazu geraten hat es zumachen. Sie arbeitet dort für 1 Monat. Also haben wir es gemacht und am Ende wollten sie uns beiden dann ein Kurs anbieten wo wir unsere Persönlichkeit verbessern sollten. Natürlich machen wir es nicht weil es kostet 50$. 😅

    Unser Auto stand nicht ganz optimal und wir hatten ein bisschen Angst das es abgeschleppt wurde. Zum Glück stand es noch da. 😂

    Zum schlafen haben wir uns auf ein Walmart Parkplatz gestellt wo eine Zugstrecke war. Wir bauten das Auto um und es wurde so laut das wir gedacht haben das ein Helikopter direkt über uns war. Allerdings war es nur ein Zug.😂
    Die Nacht haben wir trotzdem noch gut verbracht.
