    In a great area, very close to the beach and third street promenade. Friendly and helpful staff, breakfast, towel hire and wifi included in the rate. Small but comfortable bunk beds. Your typical big hostel really.

    It´s close to Santa Monica which takes like an hour to get anywhere else. The no alcohol policy makes it a bit harder to get to know people and that you have to pay $5 for a locker for your bag once you check out is stupid.

    It was a bit of a shock to arrive into LA especially as my body clock didn't know where it was at. During the 9 hour flight (where my seat was upstairs in the plane, but unfortunately not in Business Class!) we crossed over the international date line so no wonder my body didn't know what time it was.
    I picked up the car that I had arranged to …

    Die letzten Tage in Kalifornien wollte ich dort verbringen, wo ich mein kleines Abenteuer begonnen hatte. Also ging es am Mittwoch zurück nach Santa Monica.

    Fast vier Stunden brauchte ich mit den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln von Orange County nach Santa Monica. Den restlichen Nachmittag lag ich faul am Strand rum. Und auch der nächste Tag …

    Dank Jetlag konnte ich schon ab 5 Uhr nicht mehr schlafen und so ging es nach einem amerikanischen Frühstück direkt zum Strand.

    Wo gestern noch maßen an Touristen rumwuselten, war es um 8 Uhr morgens noch überschaubar. Ich schlenderte Richtung Venice Beach. Einige Surfer und Jogger waren
    schon auf den Beinen und auch ein Kamerateam, …
