          My favorite room at the Hotel Villa Portofino is the Capri Suite with it's balcony offering views of Avalon Bay. The king size bed and huge soaking tub is ideal after a day of sightseeing. The on-site restaurant is one of the best on the island. We enjoy taking a bottle of champagne up to the sun deck and sit in lounge chairs during sunset. In the morning, they offer a continental breakfast up to 10 a.m.

          We have always wanted to include Santa Catalina Island on one of our visits to California, so we decided to spend some of the time we had allocated for California (between Puerto Vallarta and flying home) on the island.

          After our stay at Laguna Beach in Orange County, we drove up to Long Beach to take the 'Catalina Express' ferry. This is …

          ... heard one pickup driver showing off their wheel-spinning skills, seen a quad-bike chattering along, and there is somebody skateboarding now across the park. A cat is plodding around outside the car now. There is a certain edgy feel here. I've dimmed the screen on the laptop to minimum, and locked the central locking, while I sit and write.

          Today we ventured to the island of Catalina, off the California Coast. The only way we could get to the Island was by waking up early (5am early) to get to Newport Beach for 8am to catch a boat, which would be about an hour and a half.We arrived at around 10.45. The first activity we went to do was snorkeling, unfortunately the best place to see lots of fish was down a steep pile of rocks into the water (it was only about 7/8 feet high), which proved ...

I can barely notice the sound difference between the two sets. I recommend these ones more. Headphones are a necessity for myself, especially in the hostels.
