Last days in LA

Today's our last day in Hollywood before we head off to Las Vegas! Yeah baby!! I'm very much looking forward to Vegas, and I've only heard good things from the locals here. Yesterday was a total write-off for both me and Toni, due to the incredibly strong (and expensive, $10?!) drinks at the Black Light [...]

Bump in the road

I've been biten by a spider. Today we spent 5 hours in the emergency room next to many people that were in a much worse state than me. I'm going to be fine but I think someone actually died while we were there. The Mexican woman behind us most likely had a miscarriage and a [...]

San Diego & Tijuana

Last night we met with some people from our hostel in San Diego for what was supposed to be a pub crawl. We ended up going to a supermarket, buying alcohol and then hanging out in the this really dodgy garage at the back of another hostel. It actually ended up being a heap of [...]

San Diego

So we've made it to the southern most city of California, San Diego!!! But I am getting a little bit ahead of myself here... We spent the last two days in Anaheim, home of the amazing Disney Land. I wasn't sure how much I was going to enjoy Disney Land, I thought it might be [...]

Hollywood

We've just arrived in Hollywood! It's late so we haven't been out exploring yet but we'll be out taking lots of photos first thing tomorrow. Our last day in San Francisco (for now) was awesome. We visited Haight Ashbury and got some super t-shirts and explored Golden Gate park where Phil made friends with some [...]

We like San Francisco

We like San Francisco. It's large, but easy to get around by foot which is good as we've spent a great deal of time in fast food restaurants (today we had banana nutella & cream crepes for breakfast mmm) - it's nice to feel like you're burning off some American made flab while getting to [...]

Just a quick post to let everyone know we've arrived safely. We've done little more than sleep so far so will update you when we have something interesting to post. Phil and Toni

Last Day In Thailand

It's our last half day here, before we start our long journey home. We haven't really done a hell of a lot in the last couple of days, Toni has a stomach flu of some form which has made the last little while most unpleasant for her, but did give me time to read The [...]

Phi Phi

Have just got back from a big day on Phi Phi island. We caught a ferry early in the morning and then after anchoring 100 meters or so from the shore we climbed into a little wooden boat and headed to the island. We spent some time admiring the scenery and swimming in the ocean [...]
