Los Angeles 2013

So, I’ve already posted about The Office Set Visit, and now it’s time for the rest of Los Angeles!

We had such a fantastic time. I’d never been to the West coast before (Sally had), so it was all new to me. The flight was long, but bearable (we had a SkyCouch!), and we arrived safely in LA around 8pm. We went to pick up our rental car, headed to hotel, and promptly passed out.

Our first day was The Office visit, and following that the trip was a whirlwind of excitement. We visited Disneyland, Santa Monica, The Grove, hiked 6 miles to the top of the Hollywood sign, ate lots of good food, shopped at Target, and met up with some great friends.

On The Office set:

I love Disney, so I was so excited that we were able to fit this in! Now I can check Orlando, Paris, and California off the list. Next up: Tokyo!

The weekend was also very rainy, so we went to see a movie at The Arclight in Hollywood. We also went to Glendale to have dinner with Sally’s uber awesome friend Leigh:

But, I can say I loved California and hope to return one day!
