We went on a nature walk today! It was run by the hostel and this 70-something year old woman was our tour guide, really active and in awesome shape for her age! and totally hilarious. There was an italian guy on the walk and she loved him. There were also 2 guys from london, 1 from columbia and a girl from germany, plus me and tom from aus. so it was good mix! We went up the pacific palisades, which is in the santa monica mountains, and it was a good 2 hour hike, uphill then down again. It was nice, and such a good view.

We made friends with a guy called Hugo from London and he was planning to go to Malibu that afternoon, same as us. So we teamed up and all went together. It was funny, Tom and I had already reasearched and figured out how to get there so Hugo was very pleased he came along with us because he didnt have to figure out anything!

When we got to Malibu we went to some like market area sort of thing (kind of like gold creek village i think) where a shirt was $250 dollars but where food was cheap. So we ate lunch and some people told us that people such as Madonna and Barbara Striesand were often seen there, we didnt see anyone famous though :(

We walked across to the beach and under the 'private beach' fence along the beach in front of all the fancy houses. Its a one way beach though and ends in rocks and cliffs at the other end, so we had to walk all the back again to get off the beach! ugh so much walking, and on sand! difficult.

We went to the pier and had a beer each and then caught the bus back to Santa Monica.
