I returned to the Netherlands from the US with a staggering 14.000 photos on my phone. I guess that means it’s only reasonable to share a fraction of these photos with you, right? Let’s kick of the Iphone travel diaries with LA.
Highlights of our time in LA involved getting invited for lunch in the Polo Lounge in the Beverly Hills hotel, having a personal driver for a day while staying at the Redbury, who showed us around in places we’d otherwise not have come and last but certainly not least…getting to see Nick & Simon (Dutch singers who happened to be in LA filming for a new TV series), performing at the Levitt Pavillion. One of Tatiane’s friends was part of the film crew, that’s how we found out and we had such a great time!
Now let’s do the pictures do the rest of the talking, of course while doing some explaining…
Later that day we headed to Levitt Pavilion where Nick and Simon were performing. The whole ambiance was so much fun, people sitting down in the grass with drinks, dancing, a cupcake stand (yes!) and more. We said hi to Tatiane’s friend, the crew and Nick & Simon. Gotta love spontaneous nights like this…
We found a super market that does INCREDIBLE sushi, but unfortunately I forgot the name haha. Here we’re having lunch by the pool at Custom Hotel.
We visited LA in the beginning of our Journey (from July 9th until the 13th) and came back again at the end of the month from the 25th. The first time we visited all the obvious things such as the Walk of Fame, Venice beach, Beverly Hills, the second time we tried to be a little more adventurous and decided for example to head to Malibu for the day. Such a wonderful place and much quieter than for example Venice and Santa Monica. Here we’re looking out over the Malibu Pier…
We had lunch at the Malibu Farm cafe, a really cool spot to sit down on the Malibu Pier. Fantastic food and the best view, a must go if you’re in the area. We had a delicious salad and salmon burgers.
On Sunday morning we visited the Lake Shrine temple in Pacific Palisades. There’s a temple on a hill overlooking the prettiest gardens, lake and located right next to the pacific ocean. You can read more about the experience in the 5 things to do in Los Angeles post.
The next day we went to Griffith park observatory. From here you have a great view over the Los Angeles Skyline, you can see the famous Hollywood sign from up close or you can simply go for a hike in the hills. So many things to do!
