... s for us all to try (I actually thought it sounded and looked disgusting but was forced into trying it and actually thought it was pretty good.) We stayed at the funfair all evening and all had a really good night it was a classic American funfair and was cool to do something a little different.
So that is a little taste of what we have been up to so far will keep you posted soon on the rest of Cali!

... I am in is blocked off. I am 100 yards from traffic lights and cannot see it. We are frustrated with each other and voices are raised but when I realise she is talking about 300 yards beyond the lights, I go ballistic stating its a par 4 away for f**** sake!!! However she is right about one thing. The car is wider than mine and I am tending to be to near to the inside lane. It took us over an hour to get out of LA!!! The traffic was hellish. ...

We then made our way to Santa Barbara, checked in to the motel and went walking along the beach, pier and main street. It started to feel like we were really in California, with palm tree lined streets and beautiful blue skies. We walked around until everything was shutting up and then went back to our motel! We were buggered as were going non stop from about 7:30am - 10:00pm!
