  • Day114

    Tag 113 L.A. und Weiterfahrt nach...

    August 1 in the United States

    Auch heute hatten wir wieder ein gedrängtes Programm. Nachdem wir auf Hawaii entspannen konnten, sind wir wieder voller Energie und unternehmungslustig. Wir besuchten Beverley Hills und Bel Air. Da wohnen alle Stars. Wir kamen nicht mehr aus dem staunen raus, als wir die Villen sahen😱. Kurz haben wir überlegt, uns ein Anwesen zu kaufen. Da die alle einen Helikopter im Garten haben und wir noch keinen besitzen, werden wir halt noch warten🤪. Anschliessend fuhren wir nach Santa Monica zum Pierre. Von da aus haben wir uns Fahrräder geliehen und sind bis zum Venice Beach geradelt. Ist schon krass wieviele Obdachlose es hier gibt. Praktisch der ganze Fahrradweg war von denen belegt.
    So.... nun kommts... anstatt mit dem Auto in Richtung Norden zu fahren haben wir unsere Pläne geändert. Wir sind stattdessen nach LAS VEGAS gefahren. Von hier aus werden wir dann nach San Francisco fliegen. So kriegen wir alles rein👍😉🙈. Die Fahrt nach Vegas war ursprünglich 4 Stunden. Mit dem ganzen Staus hatten wir dann über 7 Stunden😱. Was solls, hauptsache ohne Unfall angekommen.
    Hier in Vegas ist es nochmals wärmer. Um 21 Uhr haben wir noch 109 Grad Fahrenheit 42 Grad Celsius.

    111 Tag Los Angeles…

    August 1 in the United States

    Heute gingen wir die Beverly Hills anschauen (da wohnen die Stars mit viel Kohle)💵. Wir gingen zu Bel Air wo die richtig fetten Villen stehen🏠. Wir haben eine gesehen die 10 Meter hohe Hecken hatte und ein paar Spritzbrunnen direkt in das riesige Pool, aber ein Helikopter im Garten durfte nicht fehlen. Hatte der vielleicht Geld💰? Danach gingen wir zu dem Pier von L.A🛥. Gemütlich ging es mit dem Velo an dem Weg entlang, bis… bis wir naacchhh Las Vegas fuhren (tatatata) ja wir fahren nach Las Vegas🎰. Nur das Problem ist das wir um 11:00 angekommen sind🕚.

    Day 3 - LA

    June 30, 2017 in the United States

    Getting out of bed this morning was a struggle! We were completely pooped from our long day yesterday. We had lots of bits we needed to buy so we spent the morning visiting Best Buy, K Mart and Target. We have decided to invest in a decent camera as our iPhone pictures just aren't cutting it.

    In the afternoon we headed to Santa Monica, home of the original Muscle Beach where Arnie got massive! Because of the tours we wanted to do, it was cheaper for us to buy Go Cards which gave us access to a number of attractions / tours across LA. One of them was a Malibu Celebrity Homes Tour which left from Santa Monica pier so as we were there we decided to do the tour. This epitomises being a tourist, we were ferried around in an open topped bus whilst the tour guide pointed out various celebrities house. It was quite fun though. I feel like if you can't indulge in trashy celebrity culture when you're in Hollywood when can you? Unfortunately we didn't spot any celebs however we did see a plethora of celebs Malibu beach houses (some of which aren't particularly impressive) including Bruce Willis, Leonardo DiCaprio, Courtney Cox, Tom Hanks and Justin Bieber.

    The tour finished up around 5:30pm so we decided to head back and grab our stuff to go to the airport as the traffic in LA is horrendous and it takes forever to get anywhere!

    Next stop Fiji for some serious relaxing!

    Los Angeles again

    July 22, 2017 in the United States

    Heute war nochmal ein stessiger letzter Tag. Am Wochenende hier in den USA in einer Großstadt zu sein ist keine gute Idee. Man steht eigentlich nur im Stau, das war ja in San Francisco letze Woche schon so. Aber Katha konnte nochmal in ihren Lieblingsökoladen Erewhon frühstücken 😂 und die Hollywood Signs haben wir auch endlich gefunden. Wir haben noch einmal am Strand in Venice und Santa Monica vorbeigeschaut und ordentlich Fußkilometer zurückgelegt, nachdem wir nach einer zweistündigen Parkplatzsuche einen bekommen haben! Nun sitzen wir in unserem Airporthotel, haben das Auto sicher abgestellt, schlafen uns aus, fliegen morgen um 15.20 Uhr Ortszeit nach Hause und freuen uns auf unsere Familie😍❤️! Landung in Frankfurt am Montag um 11.20 Uhr (Deutsche Zeit). Danke Birgit, dass du uns abholst😘.Read more

    Venice beach cycling

    April 16 in the United States

    We woke up to breakfast being served by Ester in the kitchen, with pastries, and Hungarian plum jam. After breakfast, she offered to drive us to Venice beach where we planned to rent bicycles. On the way sue had a really good sightseeing tour, on places in their lives, and just places of general interest as well. We drove through the Venice canals, which she said she only discovered recently as well. They are 5-6 little canals with nice houses on their bank, and kayaks and boats on the water, it is a really cute place, unfortunately I didn't take any photos from the car though. Then we found a bike rental place and splurged for the premium bikes at an extra dollar an hour, which had gears. They were still a bit rusty and old, but the gears were surprisingly needed on the flat beach as we had quite strong head wind at times. The beach was very pretty, although it was kind of full of weird people. It had a different feel to the san francisco homeless people though, I never actually felt scared by anyone, but regardless they were still quite a bit of the atmosphere of Venice beach. At the same time there were some definitely local people also around, riding skateboards, rollerskates, walking their dogs and kids, and doing various other sports on the beach. There was a funky weightlifting gym, padel courts, volleyball, and quite a lot of bodyweight training stuff. We played around with those, I climbed a rope, probably for the first time since I was a kid. The best was this line of rings though, that we first saw a couple play around with. Basically you had to swing to catch the next rung, and then do a heft pullup to get some momentum, and then swing to catch the upcoming one again. They made it look effortless, but when we first tried it, we both terribly failed. Eventually I managed to do it, but Seamus never managed to get the hang of it.
    Here's some videos of our monkey adventures and some other things from the day https://photos.app.goo.gl/SIMc22TJMyPFOsFH3
    We also went to the Santa Mónica pier. This used to be a huge attraction, as it was one the the first concrete piers (built to pour sewage into the sea...) but this also meant that they could build various attractions on the pier, like a merry go round, roller coaster, all kinds of food stands. It still is really nice, although it looks much bigger from far away then it actually is. I tried a corn dog for the first time, though it wasn't a super amazing experience to be honest :D
    All in all we cycled around for more then 3 hours, though the guys t the rental place was nice, and only charged us for 3!

    Palisades Park

    October 26, 2016 in the United States

    Chegamos a LA quase ao anoitecer.
    Fomos a correr para o Palisades Park em Sta.Monica onde tinha visto ser dos melhor por do sol desta viagem!
    Mais uma vez pagamos uma exurbitância de parque de estacionamento. Quase tao caro como andar numa das atracoes do parque. Curtimos uma beca a montanha russa muito fraquinha e vimos uns pseudo bailarinos a dançar por dinheiro. Fomos direitas ao hotel que ainda ficou longe... como tudo por aqui da-me a sensação.Read more

    Venice Beach @Los Angeles

    August 22, 2017 in the United States

    Venice Beach ist der etwa 4,5 km lange, an der Pazifikküste gelegene Sandstrand des 1925 von Los Angeles eingemeindeten Stadtteils Venice. Der Strandabschnitt schließt südlich an den Strand von Santa Monica an.

    Auf Grund des milden Klimas Südkaliforniens ist der Strand während des ganzen Jahres gut besucht. Vor allem an den Wochenenden hat die von Souvenir- und Verkaufsständen gesäumte Strandpromenade, der Ocean Front Walk oder kurz Boardwalk, eine besondere Anziehungskraft für Bewohner von Los Angeles wie auch für Touristen. Zu den Spaziergängern gesellen sich dann Straßenkünstler, Drogenabhängige, Musiker, Maler, Wahrsager und Artisten.

    An den Betonwänden von Häusern, Mauern und Sportplätzen ist eine Vielzahl von ständig erneuerten bzw. übermalten Graffiti zu sehen. Die Hall of Fame von Venice Beach ist in der weltweiten Graffiti-Szene bekannt.
