Route 66 – Day 1

Today is the day that we started Route 66. We dropped off the Golf and picked up a white Ford Mustang that had only covers 2000 miles. We don’t think it’s a big V8 but I’m not going to look and just pretend that it is. Off we go! Ok I looked, its a 3.7 V6, so not too bad. We decided to skip the “original LA Route 66 roads” because LA is a massive pain in the ass to drive in and we just wanted to g [...]

Blowing the budget [Inc. video]

Today has been an expensive day. Our daily budget doesn’t really stretch to Universal Studio’s (unless we sleep on the street for the night) but we thought we’re probably only here once so let’s go! I think it was around £60 each so quite a bit more than Alton Towers or Thorpe Park. It was worth it though, it’s a great day out and there is loads to see and do there. The new Fast and Furious ride h [...]

Beach Bodies

Finally, today is BEACH DAY! We decided to take a look at Venice beach first because this seems to be where all the attractions are. We turned up and the parking was $17.50 so swiftly turned round and managed to find a 2 hours space for $4 which was perfect as we wanted to see Santa Monica as well. It turned out that this was just enough time all be it with a little run at the end to get back in t [...]

Feeding our addiction

Don’t worry parents, it’s not drugs, or even alcohol, it’s way better.. PIZZA!! Anyone who knows Nick and I will know we have a bit of an addiction to Pizza and rarely go a week without the standard weekend Domino’s delivery. Come Monday we would have been away 3 weeks and during that time we’ve had no Domino’s!! So to keep the withdrawal symptoms at bay we headed to the local Dominos this evening [...]

Hollywood Homes

So today was supposed to be a beach day, wahoo we could do with nice relaxing day. The problem turned out to be the weather. It was really hot and sunny at the hotel, but LA is so huge the weather can change. It took us over an hour to get to the Santa Monica Beach due to traffic and when we got there it was overcast and windy. Bit of a cockup we thought. We drove through Beverly Hills on the way [...]

The walk of fame

I woke up in our tent again this morning after another stint of camping. This time it was at Freemont Campsite in Paradise (I'm not sure if ‘Paradise’ is a suitable name for any campsite though). We just spent one night there to break up our drive from San Fransisco to LA. The first leg of yesterdays drive was about 7 hours along the coastal route. I can’t say I saw much of this though as I swear [...]

Behind Bars

We had a lazy start today and spent the morning in the hotel room catching up on everything that has been going on at home, basically doing spreadsheets. Once this was done it was off to Alcatraz thanks to Angela and Robin. This was awesome and a must see if you are going to San Francisco. We went over on a boat and stood at the bow in the “Splash Area”. I had my new waterproof jacket on so decide [...]
