    Venice et venice beach

    May 22, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Fait sous une pluie battante. Il fallait bien que ca arrive un jour , on y avait échappé jusqu'ici.
    Plage immense et reposante et venice charmante avec ses canaux , des ponts, ses maisons et des embarcations.
    C'était sympas meme sous la pluie.
    Puis la route le long de la côte très jolie et sympas avec un passage a malibu et Santa Barbara et la vie sur l'océan quasi tout le long ( plage, vagues, maisons, surfeurs, brume, îles, pipelines....: vraiment chouette tous ces paysages qui defilent.
    On s'est trouvé un hôtel sympas à lompoc et on s'est fait un buffet a volonté. Je me suis fait une méga salade de malaaaaade. Trop bonne.
    Et demain petit dej compris dans la nuit d'hôtel: la totale. Au top
    Allé une petite série sur la tablette pour s'endormir et à demain. 😪

    Los Angeles

    September 18, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Finally, an update! We’ve been really busy since being in LA. We’re now in Las Vegas and Judith and Lisa are on their way back to Germany.

    Our time in LA was short in comparison to the size of the city. I can’t believe it can easily take 1 hour just to get from one end of the city to the other. Totally too big for our little family, because driving long distances just to see 1 place is such a waste of time.

    We stayed at an Airbnb within walking distance of Venice Beach. Tbh, I can’t really remember everything that we did, but here’s some of the highlights:

    - having breakfast (eggslut) by the beach with Lisa
    - getting crazy sweet donuts from Donut Friend in the city
    - eating Papi’e Tacos. SOOOOOO GOOOOOOD.
    - a brief walk around Abbot Kinney (wish I had more time to explore this area!)
    - playing arcade games at night while Judith babysit for us
    - catching the sunset at the pier
    - walking around the Venice Canals with all the pretty houses

    Santa Monica, LA

    December 5, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Just a short trip here to see the Cheesecake Factory .. oh and Andy's niece Bethany :) we were lucky to have our very own semi native Santa Monican tour guide and chauffeur who took us to see all the best bits of LA (that weren't on fire), with YMCA and other 70-80s hits on full volume, windows down. David, you taught her well!
    We were pretty lazy the rest of the time and spent most of it at the Cheesecake Factory which is probably our favourite place ever. No sign of the Big Bang Theory crew, although they've probably moved on to the likes of Nobu, now that they're super rich and famous!
    Andy surfed on Venice beach which was pretty cool! Venice Beach was certainly an experience - full of people from every walk of life and many people trying to sell you medical marijuana cards.
