The place is totally amazing I fell in love with it as soon as I landed at the airport everything about LA just suited me all over the fast pace the amazing places to go to the shops the houses everything and to top it all off the American's are with out a doubt the most nicest and friendly and welcoming people in the world and it was an honour to be in the States,
I arrived at my hostel which was a really nice place greeted by reception saying "Hi Y'all" I checked in to my room and showered and went to bed as it was really late when I arrived and wanted to be up early to make the most of my first day in Los Angeles - California.
I had signed up to go on a tour which takes you around all the homes in Beverly Hills that the mega famous people live,
So there I am in Beverly Hills the sun shining walking fast these massive houses that were worth millions and millions and the first house that we see was once owned by the first King himself ELVIS and has just been sold within the last year to the King of Pop MICHAEL JACKSON as I stoop on Jackson's drive his front gate opened and a car drove in so I managed to get a shot of his house with the guard on the drive,
There were loads of houses to see there was Walt Disney’s old house, Adam Sandlers house, Matt Le Blancs it was fantastic all these amazing houses to see,
In the afternoon it was time to head up to Hollywood Boulevard and check out the Hollywood walk of fame so myself and this guy called Steve that I had made friends with in the hostel decided to do the whole walk and both of us were shocked how many stars there actually were, every pave stone was covered in the ground and the road was so long and the stars also went up every side street,
It was brilliant seeing all the stars names there all the greats were there Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, Tom Hanks, and so many more, we spent hours walking up and down looking at every single on taking pictures and everything,
In the evening they were announcing the Big fight with Ricky Hattern that will be taking place in Vegas so we watched the whole build up along the Boulevard that was going out live on HBO,
The next day it was time for the tour of the most famous sign in the world the "HOLLYWOOD" sign with one massive walk up to the sign and once finally there it is one amazing feeling to be stood right there in front of the sign the sun was shining it was so nice and hot with a clear blue sky and the Hollywood sign could this get any better?
In the afternoon myself and Steve decide to go for a walk around and check out some places we went to a shopping mail and see some of the most amazing stores ever,
I have to say that I was having the best time ever in LA and was really enjoying myself made some really good friends in my time in both Hawaii and LA and really did not want to leave, Im not saying that I never enjoyed parts of Thailand and Australia but I would have rather have spent the whole time in the USA travelling around as I would have been so much happier im just totally gutted that the place that I wanted to go to the most and the place that I enjoyed the most was my shortest stay of them all as there is so much in America that I want to see and do but I am pleased to say that at least I have now been to America and I will for sure be heading back there some point at the end of this year.
