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 […]Read More LA Pt5 – The Getty and the GO Card Pt3 – Sony Studios and Venice Beach
Continued from here So probably the best part of the Go Pass, was that if you buy the 3 day (or more) then you get entrance to Universal Studios included as well. Believe it or not, but I haven’t been to many theme parks, so I was not going to miss this chance! Before that […]Read More LA Pt4 The GO Pass Pt2 – The studios
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 […]Read More Hawaii, Hawaii, USA – Pt8.
Continued from here So most cities have some sort of multi attraction pass that gets you into a whole bunch of sites and museums. Often these are run by the city, and just cover the government run things, museums and historic sites mostly, but some cities have other cards run by an external company who […]Read More LA Pt.3 The GO Pass
Continued from here. That morning, I met some folks at the Airbnb who were also going to the festival, so I hopped in with them, and arrived nice and early to the site for the second day. Much more of an emo feel to the day (with the exception of happy ska-punkers Less Than Jake). […]Read More LA Pt.2 Back to the Beach, Elysian Park and Downtown LA
I love live music, so when I saw one of my old favourite bands were playing down in LA, a city I’ve been hoping to experience for a long time, and it wasn’t in the peak of summer, I had to jump at the chance to get down there and get double the bang for […]Read More LA Pt.1 Arrival, Newport and Back to the Beach day 1
Things have changed quite a bit since my last post (except the last one about Hawaii, that I just added the tags to yesterday). Here’s a quick run down of the last few months in my life, and a few of the posts that I will hopefully get done in the coming months My Canadian […]Read More A Brief Update.
Continued from here. Hilo immediately struck me as a nice place to be. Open and spacious, developed and interesting, with a nice combination of culture and commercialism. It’s not popular as a tourist destination, so it’s a haven for locals, and it shines because of that. There’s no $150 luau on the beach, instead there.s […]Read More Hawaii, Hawaii, USA – Pt6
Continued from here So Day 3 on the big island, and time to tick some more bits of the list. I got dropped off in the morning at the start of the Green Beach trail, and as I had time to kill and didn’t fancy paying to stand awkwardly with other tourists in the deathtrap […]Read More Hawaii, Hawaii, USA – Pt5
Continued from here. The ‘commuter’ terminal in Maui might not be much to see, but the flight between really is. It’s not a scenic flight, but when there’s only eight of you in the plane and you’re flying right next to a volcano over perfect beaches it’s hard not to enjoy it. About twenty minutes […]Read More Hawaii, Hawaii, USA – Pt4
