Hi Everyone hope you are all well!
We are all fine!
Sorry about the lack of blogs in the last week but we have had a little problem with the internet...our blog will not let us load photos on so i will try and get it sorted asap!
On sunday we took the metro down to Hollywood with plans to blitz the area as we are hard core tourists...We succeeded! We took a tour around beverly hills and the stars homes which included the playboy mansion, rodeo drive, the regent beverly whitshire, tom cruises home and many more! It was a two hour tour which was really good and gave us some history about the area and the stars who lived their including scandals, arrests and crime!
It was really fun and because we did that tour we got a free tour around hollywood which included filmsets, paramount studios, the hollywood sign, kodak theatre (home of oscars!), walk of fame andgraumans chinese theatre! It was really good and the glitz and glam was really something! Linda has decided that everyone in LA is a performer and i agree. Lee says that although it was good...it really was not his thing! Men!
The following day we decided to go to universal studios in Hollywood! IT WAS FANTASTIC! We had an amazing time visiting the sets of famous films and series such as Wysteria lane from desperate housewives, whoovile, jaws, the bates motel, king kong, fast and the furious, waterworld, backdraft, and may more. We also had many cool experiences such as terminator in 3d and shrek in 4d. It was awesome and a fantastic way to see the masterpiece in Film making! We all totally collapsed as we got in after 12am after going to chinatown for amazing food!
By the way...we also took linda for japanese so she is no longer a japanese food virgin!
After a hectic day we collapsed!
On monday it was the day to pick up our RV so in the morning lin and i decided to go back to hollywood one last time and lee chilled in the hotel. When we arrived back we got in a cab to carson and picked up our RV-home for over three weeks! It is really cool and exciting and very comfortable.
we unfortunatley spent a large proportion of the day searching for a road map...which no where seemed to have and then ended up staying another night in LA. Which was ok because we stayed in a campsite which was right near the freeway that we were heading on tomorrow!
Today, we got up and left, heading for Las Vegas via Calico Ghost town.
The drive to calico took about 1.5 hours which was ok. When we got there it was in the middle of the desert, which meant it was BLOODY hot! So hot that it was around 110 farenheit. We walked around the old western town which is an old mining town which kinda feels like you are in a cowboy movie! It was very good but so hot! We left after lunch and lots of diet coke and headed for vegas! We arrived here at 6pm tonight so we are waiting for the dark so that we can go and hit the town. We have purposly come in away from the strip so that the first time Lin and Lee see the hotels it will be lit and amazing! As i have already been here once i thought it may spoil the illusion if we saw it at day first!
Wish you were all here!
Absolutely loving having linda here! Its just incredible!
Love you all
Kirst, Lee and Linda xxx
