LA is a massive place to see the whole of it would take weeks we don't have and dollars we can't spent. Rather than being tempted to return to Santa Monica we opted for a hotel in Hollywood, budget be damned! You can't really see much if you don't have a car but we were near the quick and efficient metro so decided to take a trip to Universal Studios. It's a bit pricey but worth a look if you like the movies. Some of the best 'rides' there are the 3D kind or now 4D which really is just a moving seat or getting sprayed by water but they are really good, if you are a kid you'd love it( or a big kid like me) Shrek 4D and Terminator 2 were my highlight, with the film really coming out from the screen at you, oh and I can't forget the Mummy ride where you get to go again if you liked it the first time, one more time!
Most people hate LA but I don't think they give it a chance, there are lots of interesting places to see and it's really at the heart of America life, which fascinates me. No country on earth is so blessed but so cursed at the same time, it's up to you to decide.
Now that's it for our travels for the time being, thanks for reading hope you haven't been too bored and it inspires you to see some of the world. It's a great place.
