    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 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!

    Tag 7: Auf Erkundungstour in LA

    August 28, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Heute war unser 2. Tag in Los Angeles und wir haben uns etwas auf Erkundungstour durch LA gemacht. Vorbei am Walk of Fame haben wir uns zunächst auf zu den Paramount Pictures Studios gemacht, wo wir auf einer 2-stündigen Tour coole Einblicke in die Filmindustrie erhalten haben und auch auf drei Filmsets waren. Sehr beeindruckend, was es dort zu sehen gibt und mit welchen Tricks gearbeitet wird.

    Fun Fact: Paramount produziert die meisten seiner Filme gar nicht auf dem eigenen, 65 Hektar großen Gelände, sondern bei billigeren Filmstudios um die Ecke. 🤪

    Abends haben wir uns auf den Weg zum Griffith Observatory gemacht. Von dort aus hat man einen richtig guten Blick auf Los Angeles und das berühmte Hollywood Sign. Auf dem Weg dorthin sind wir am Hollywood Boulevard dann durch Zufall auch noch an der Premiere der neuen Show „Mayans“ vorbeigekommen.

    Sehr cool, was die Stadt alles zu bieten hat, und dabei haben wir bislang ja nur einen Bruchteil gesehen.

    Sunset plaza, West Hollywood

    February 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Domingo de sol, a la mañana nos fuimos a una reunion de autos deportivos en Sunset Plaza. Los dueños llevaban sus autos, que terminaban agrupados por marcas. Los chicos, dudando entre Ferraris y Lamborghinis.

    Last day..

    October 17, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    My last full day of this trip. This morning I tried to get the most out of my one-night stay at the Waldorf. I went to their incredible rooftop pool to hang out for a bit and enjoy the sun. It is still very warm here!

    After checking out, I went for a walk around the West Hollywood area and eventually made my way back to the Toluca Lake/Burbank area for a tour of Warner Bros. Studios. I have done the tour several times before, but it’s different every time since there’s always a lot of things happeing on the lot. It’s fun to roam the grounds where many of my fav. movies and shows were made, and continue to be. The tour included a look at the soundstage for the show Lucifer, the ‘picture car vault’ with many cool Batmobiles, the museum with props and costumes, and the various buildings and streets used in countless productions.

    They also have a relatively new feature that ends the tour - ‘from script to stage’. I got to hold an actual Oscar! Pretty cool.

    In the early evening I went to check out the Universal Citywalk with interesting shops and dining options. I kind of wanted to visit the Universal Studios theme park next door as well, but I have absolutely no money left!

    Instead I went back to Hollywood and walked to my final hotel - the mythic Chateau Marmont. I was upgraded to a ‘cottage’ which turned out to be my own little house! There is a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. It’s a somewhat unusual hotel in many ways, but still a very in demand hotspot especially for locals. It’s infamous for being the place where actor John Belushi died in his bungalow some decades back.

    Tomorrow it will be time to head back home again..
