Much earlier this year I travelled on a ‘Wrist doctors of the world’ tour. It started in Australia, then onto London and Dusseldorf, eventually ending up in the States around March. This was not the most ideal of tours to be on. So to spice things up, I invited Jen and Sally to join me in California. Other than driving back and forth from the airport to Indian Wells, I’d never had time to enjoy the sights of LA. Let’s begin!Cheesy tourist pic in Santa Monica? Check.Group selfie at the Getty Museum? Check. I took loads of pictures of the view from the Getty museum. Sadly due to the pollution that day none of them turned out nice enough to blog about.Candid yet completely planned photo at the top of Runyon Canyon? Check. Sorry about the pixel quality on this one, I only brought my phone along for the hike. One of my appointments required a long drive along the Pacific Coast Highway. As you can see it was a real inconvenience for us. I pestered my trainer every 10 minutes to stop the car for a photo-op. For anyone who’s seen the OC, you’ll know that no Californian road trip is complete without singing along to this song as loud as possible. Check.
A quick restaurant guide to LA. The best places we dined at, in no particular order… Craft, Cleo (greatest brussel sprouts of my life) and Nobu in Malibu (the view!). If you’re looking for a great brunch go to Tavern, Joan’s on Third or Toast.Another appointment, another city. I’ve been dreaming of going back to San Francisco. I absolutely loved it there but only had a few hours of free time before my flight home. Many thanks to Courtney for the speed tour. That is my trip to California in 12 photos. See you next time in Indian Wells.
