Where I stayed
Hostelling International Santa Monica/Los Angeles

Friday, October 8, 2010

After breakfast I did the typical touristy stroll along Santa Monica Pier before obtaining my bicycle for the day. It was only fifteen dollars and look how pretty she is. The only downside was, she didn’t have brakes. To make the bike stop you had to cycle backwards. I’m rather pleased with myself for not falling off, what with the demented bicycle and with me being on strict celebrity watch out.

I’ve cycled at least 18 miles today, I’ve been close to Malibu where ‘Baywatch‘ used to be filmed, Will Rogers State Beach, Venice Beach and tried to get to Marina Del Ray too but I got lost. Celebrity spotting is pretty difficult as practically all the locals wear hats and massive sunglasses. Everybody looks like a potential celebrity. And everybody here has a little dog, and I saw two doggy prams today.

Tomorrow I’m up early and off to San Francisco. I'll soon be hitting the ladders for some serious ear plug action.

What time does your plane depart the airport for san francisco an what time will you be taking out the plugs and climbing down from bed no. 4?
By the way did you see the hotel on ocean road where we stayed was it called Pacific Beach?
Anyway watch the roads when you step out and have a safe flight bet youre looking forward to meeting your fellow adventurers.
