We met up with Lana, Darrol's friends from the UK who's been living out here for 4+ years now...she's kindly offered us a place to stay. She lives right on the beach in Playa Del Ray - it's beautful and we are eternally grateful to her!
So after meeting her uber cool flat mates and super cute pooch Marley, we head out to Hollywood, super excited about seeing this place. We set out in searrch of a cool view of the infamous Hollywood sign and stop and marvel at the gorgeous views of the hills & valley along the way.
We park up at Hollywood Boulevard and walk along the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's pretty incredible to see all the celebrity hand & foot prints here. Lots of showbiz history.
We timed our visit well as the Gumball Rally was passing through town. Darrol was in his element, it was really cool to see all the cars. They parked up in a parking lot nearby after so we could have a good old look and get snap happy. A rare moment indeed, seeing as we didn't even know they would be passing through!
We managed to see Kat Von D's tattoo parlour and see where they filmed Pretty Woman in Beverley Hills, that was real posh!
That night we 'dined' at hOOters! lol, that place is NOT about the food that's for sure and the girls weren't all that either - bit of a let down for Darrol...ha!
