    Universal Studio & Santa Monica

    January 6 in the United States

    What an awesome day! We went VIP into universal and it was so good, we started off with breaky in the VIP section then headed out to check out the Harry Potter section of the park. We met our tour leader Mark at 9:45 and he kick started the tour with heading back to the Harry Potter sections going on two rides but we got to head straight to the front of the line because of our VIP passes! (we thought we the shit hahaha) this section was just amazing it had all the shops like off the movie and all the lollies like Harry had on the train people actually paid top dollar for fake wonds and all, we had this thing called a butter beer that was actually just like a caramel shake it was very nice! Jurassic park was next and once again we felt like the shit because we got given plastic ponchos from mark the tour guide so we didn't get wet.
    We headed to lunch a couple rides later and the meal was a buffet it was so yummy! Toby had like three plates and almost shit him self on the way to meet back to meet our group.
    The tour of the actual studios was the part that really had us think omg we are here! We seen sets where the pirates of the Caribbean was filmed and also where jaws was filmed.
    When we finished up at universal we headed to Santa Monica pier and had a ride on the Ferris wheel. We walked out to the end and went into this bait shop where we brought a magnet and seen the whole shop inside was covered with money from all over the world with messages and names marked on them! So we pulled out a five buck note from home and put our names and 2018 and added it!
    Lastly we ended the day at Bubba Gumps for dinner then caught an uber back to the motel we got some bloke named Blair he was like 50 and was really cool he told us all about his new girlfriend and how the rekindled their love after years and years. We are pretty sure he kept missing turns so he could keep chatting to us he even got his girlfriend on FaceTime to talk to us about where she went in Australia! What a day!!

    November 9, 2016 in the United States

    Aus zwei Uhr Nachts wurde dann doch ein Uhr und da wir vorher noch die Wahl per Livestream verfolgt haben, habe ich so gut wie keinen Schlaf bekommen. Dazu kommt dann auch noch das schaurige erwachen zu den Wahlergebnissen. Ansonsten hat aber alles gut geklappt, mit der subway zum Bahnhof und mit dem airtrain zum Flughafen. Der Flug verlief sogar schneller als erwartet. In LA wurde ich erstmal von einer Hitzewelle erschlagen. Von 12grad New York auf 31grad. Durchgeschwitzt ging es dann vom Flughafen mit dem Bus nach Santa Monica. Das Gepäck konnte ich im Hostel unterstellen, solange ich auf den Check-in warten musste. In der Zeit bin ich zum Santa Monica Pier geschlendert, welcher direkt vor dem Hostel liegt. Nach dem check-in habe ich mich deb rest des tages im hostel aufgehalten und mich ausgeruht.Read more

    Santa Monica

    May 11, 2017 in the United States

    South America left behind, 5 films and three glasses of wine later, we landed in LAX. Having had grumpy Americans at security and customs in previous visits to the US, we were pleasnantly supprised as we went through in half an hour.

    A jump in a expensive taxi and we were in Santa Monica, just above LA. Dumping our stuff in the very expensive hostel room, we walked out into the night to explore. We walked down to the pier, full of colour and noise of the fun fair. People sold crafts, sang and even played the sitar to passers by.

    Climbing back up past muscle beach we walked along 3rd street full of the popular american brand names. We were starving so after months of avoiding as much as we could "American" food we went to town. Steak 'n' shake had mouthwatering steak burgers with gorgeous salty fries and that wonderfull soda machine with 50 different flavours of pop. After 3 months of luminous orange fanta drinking other flavours was wonderful. I am going to gorge myself on American food!! The weight I lost from food poisioning will soon be replaced.

    Tomorrow road trip USA starts!

    January 12 in the United States

    Als erstes sind wir heute zum legendären Santa Monica Pier und es war wirklich schön. Bis auf das Wetter. Es waren sonnige 25 Grad angesagt, aber es waren trübe, gefühlte 15 Grad. Aber Romy und ich sind Achterbahn gefahren 😄👍.

    Santa Monica

    August 7, 2016 in the United States

    Wunderschön war der Trip nach Santa Monica. Ca. eine Stunde von unserem Hotel in Venice dauerte der Spaziergang am Stran zum Santa Monica Pier.

    Auch hier spürt man deutlich den American Dream. Die Leute sind freundlich, aufgeschlossen und man kommt mit jeden gleich ins gespräch.

    Gleich ein paar Häuserblocks vom Stran weg befindet sich eine Einkaufsmeile welche sich super für eintn shopping trip eignet.

    Wegen den vielen Einkaufstaschen wählte ich für den Rückweg doch lieber das Taxi 😅💲🌊
