STOP POSTING THE HOBBIT WE DON’T GET IT HERE UNTIL BOXING DAY !
I just realised - it’s the fucking kiwis ! THEY DID THIS TO US! I bet you anything all the kiwi film makers were like “alright so we’ll get it first obviously, then the rest of the world, then maybe 2 weeks later that australians MWAHAHHAHA”
So I figure as I’m sitting in LAX, this is probably the end of our blog *sad face*
Anyhoo we’ll be home soon and our lives will go back to being boring and thus we shall have nothing of interest to blog about.
Thanks to all the lovely people who followed our escapades around the world! :)
Weird to think we have only one sleep left until we get on that plane. I’m excited to see you all, and I’m pretty damn sure Bec is, as well.
Yesterday we took a city sightseeing bus (we’re the ultimate tourists now, apparently) to the Hollywood and Beverly Hills areas as it was easier to than the MetroLocal buses, and we saw more of L.A. on the way. Having never been to these places before, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Let’s just say the over-abundance and the pretentiously self-proclaiming ’city to make yourself’ is exactly the kind of arrogance and showyness that I dislike. However, that’s not to say the sights here were uninteresting; there’s certainly a lot to do in Los Angeles, particularly the Hollywood area. We, ourselves, went to see a Cirque du Soleil show ‘Iris’ at the Dolby Theatre. It is the vibe of the city that is certainly unrivalled, and it is that which makes it one of the most interesting; there is a constant feel of action, and the feeling that someone you asaw walking down the street yesterday could be the next big thing tomorrow. I imagine that if you lived in L.A., you’d be the first to hear, see, and know about everything. As someone in the media industry, or simply as someone in their 20s, I imagine there’s a great want of this.
The unfortunate thing about L.A., to me, is its squandered potential in some areas. I don’t know whether this is because it’s not what it used to be, or whether it’s because it’s not quite there yet, but there are parts of the city that are beautifully clean, green and welcoming, and others that are shabby, tired and need attention. I don’t know whether this is on purpose - a way of encouraging those who on’t have it yet to ’make it’ so they can spend most of their time in Hollywood Hlls and Beverly Hills. Alas, I have yet to see Downtown L.A., so maybe that is the middle ground.
Overall, I’ve really enjoyed my time here, it’s a really fascinating and different sort of place. I know I wll revisit it in the future, when I can rent a car and getting around is not so difficult.
If you haven’t already guessed, Bec is asleep (and in the funniest position, I might add. I’ll see whether I can take a sneaky pic soon) and I managed to talk about this before her! :)
Can’t wait to see you!
ONE WEEK :D
EUROTRIP is on tv hahahahaha oh man - I’ve seen this movie way too many times I know every line! But also now it’s great cause we’ve been to all the places in the movie :p ngl it’s actually a pretty accurate representation of traveling in Europe haha
ok so I might not have cried in the fireworks display …. but I cried in the World of Colour show. it’s a lights and water shows and OMFGDJWBSKSHSJSSJ amazing. Tashi you should go on YouTube and find some videos of it. I didn’t take any photos or videos cause I was too enthralled, plus we were getting soaked right up front so I didn’t want to get my camera wet. So awesome though oh my gosh!!!!
I’m so glad that phoebe agrees with me that tower of terror is the best ride of all time. We went on it 3 times XD
