Today was our last day in LA...we had a tour booked at Warner Bros studio, J-Lo was filming her latest film there but unfortunately we didnt see her! We went on the Central Perk set from Friends which was really cool, its loads smaller than it looks on tv!! Apparently they do clever camera angles and make the actors take tiny steps to give the illusion of it being bigger!!
You also get to go into the WB museum where it has loads of movie/tv memorabilia like Heath Ledgers Joker suit and loads of Harry Potter stuff, we even got to wear THE sorting hat and got sorted into Hogwart Houses :) lol...Lou was a Gryffindor, Gem was a Hufflepuff and I'm obviously evil as I was Slytherin!
After the tour we met one of Gem's work contacts, Angelica, and got taken for lunch on the lot...that was really nice and Angelica was really nice too!!
Then we went into Hollywood to buy a few LA nick-nacks as we'd resisted buying them so far...then waved goodbye to LA and got on the Pacific Coast Highway...we briefly stopped in Malibu for a look-see at the beaches...then carried on along the coast to Santa Barbara where we are now! Already the scenery has been awesome!!!
The hotel is in a strange place just off a freeway :S but the room is nice and big and we have a nice big duck pond and a nice pool too so its fine :) and it also has an IHOP next to it so we're all happy!!! (Apart from the big spider that was outside our room...which is now dead...RIP Mr Spider).
Tomorrow we have a relaxing beach/pool day planned with just a bit of general sight-seeing too...we need a break after 5 jam packed days of LA-ness!!!
