3 days in L.A. on our USA road trip
Arriving in L.A.: is this home?
The moment our feet touched Los Angeles ground, we both had this feeling of not knowing what to expect but being extremely excited at the same time. I immediately – and unexplainably – started feeling home, and Simone had the impulse of singing a 90’s hit song from Bran Van 3000 « Drinking in L.A. ». We immediately knew our 3 days in L.A. were going to be fantastic!
Feeling great on our 3 days in L.A. trip
Where to stay for 3 days in L.A.: a guesthouse in West Hollywood
Welcome to Hollywood
But it’s not chaos, because the streets are wide and the sky is clear and people are smiling.

Go drink at a legendary Los Angeles bar
Santa Monica and Venice Beach
When we got home he had fever and there was no way he could do any more visiting or he would probably not have been fit enough to fly the next day. So he stayed in bed and we ordered in a delicious vegan pizza with fake cheese all over and looked at all the pictures we had taken and all the beautiful memories we had make during our 3 months honeymoon road trip in the US…
The Hollywood sign, Sunset Boulevard!! I want to visit La La Land so badly…haha!!!
Haha I didn’t feel like that AT ALL before we went and now I’m all “I want to go baaaaaaaack”!!
I had a fabulous two days in LA this Fall. If you can mostly avoid the roads during rush hour, it’s brilliant. Hollywood and Santa Monica Pier were definitely highlights for me!
So glad to hear that! People have mixed feelings about L.A., I think it’s like New York: you love it or you hate it. Loved Hollywood and Santa Monica too 🙂
I have never been to LA but after reading this post it’s definitely something I want to look into :). Great post! I especially loved the bit about the drunk Batman talking to himself haha.
Haha yes, we reeeeaaaally liked the drunk Batman too!
My boyfriend lives in LA at the moment. Your blog post validates everything he says about it. It seems like a good place to live. I think I will enjoy taking pictures of the wall art!
Ah ah Hugh Jackman 🙂
Ughh I feel you. LA accommodations are crazy expensive! Even the crappier ones charge like luxury resort prices pre much. I was just there for a 3rd visit in December though. I gotta say I too didn’t expect to like LA so much but what do you know!
