Day 19 Los Angeles day 2 (2nd September 2015)

Universal Studios

So its the last day in LA and we are heading back to the UK tomorrow afternoon. We have had an absolutely awesome day as the Americans would say!

Loved Universal - i have wanted to do that studio tour since i was a kid. Also loved the Minions ride and my favourite the Simpsons ride. We also all liked the Jurassic Park ride and did that twice.

So here are a few pictures of our day.

Wisteria Lane

Back to the future town hall

Bates Motel

The waterworld show

My favourite ride

Cool spots where cold mist is sprayed out are a welcome relief from the heat

A visit to Carney's for dinner and a few of the hotel

It has taken a lot of burgers and shakes to get a butt that big!!!

Anyway that's all folks!! Hope you enjoyed following our holiday adventures.

Day 18 Los Angeles day 1 (1st September 2015)

Today we took a tour around LA on the rastabus. A brilliant day! Highly recomend this company of you want a great tour around the main highlight in LA. They started by picking us up at the hotel on Sunset Boulevard and taking us down to Santa Monica to catch the main tour. They provided fruit which was great and an endless supply of cold water during a rather warm day!

First stop - 
Venice beach

This was Arnie's favourite hangout in his younger days but is apparently often seen cycling here. Didn't see any blokes with muscles working out...too early in the day. Also can you imagine an outside gym like this in the UK?!? Get used about 4 days of the year!!

Second stop-
Beverley Hills and Rodeo Drive

Apparently this shop charges a MINUMUM of $50,000 for a suit and if you want to go in the shop you have to pay a non refundable deposit of $1,500. No wonder the guy drives a car like this!! Ots a different world this sort of wealth. Wouldn't mind giving it a go though!!!!

Third stop - 
Farmer's market for lunch

 Brussel sprouts!!

Fourth stop - Griffith Observatory for great views of LA and the HOLLYWOOD sign!

Fifth stop -

We did pass Paramount  studios on the way there!

The Chinese theatre, handprints and footprints and the walk of fame stars on the pavement.

So happy to have found this one:

Some of my favourite actors/actresses:

Tonight we went for a meal at which i would totally recommend! The mechanical bull certainly adds to the entertainment!

Tomorrow .... Universal Studios! Our last full day in LA.
