Well the flight to LA was good with V Australia, it certainly didn't feel like 13 hours. We were awake for more than 30 hours though before going to bed. I held out for as long as I could, which was 6:30pm USA time.
LA is a huge city and really spread out. We decided that the jump on jump off bus would be the best way to see everything. LA is pretty tough without a car, so this was the next best option.
We went down Sunset Blvd, Santa Monica Blvd, Melrose Ave, not at all what you think it should look like, saw Beverly Hills, exactly what you think it should look like with the palm tree lined streets and gorgeous houses, Hollywood and the Downtown area. Stopped off at Santa Monica Pier and had lunch at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company and strolled along the walk of fame and saw all the stars names in the footpath.
Our accommodation at the bed and breakfast is just perfect and the owners are so lovely. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Off to Vegas on Tuesday at 7:30am to win all of my trip costs back :-)
