LA Pt5 – The Getty and the GO Card Pt3 – Sony Studios and Venice Beach

Continued from here   So this was my day off from the GO Card, as I had a concert to head to that evening, so I found out what was offered at the hostel that day. The HI Santa Monica does a lot of different bits and pieces for the guests, most of which are […]

Hawaii, Hawaii, USA – Pt8.

Continued from here My last full day on the island, and the last chance to really explore – time to check out a volcano (again!) The Big Island has its fair share of them, and while the Volcano National Park is the most active, Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea are much taller. And like the […]
