In need of some warmer temps, I went to LA last week. Short version/highlights: hit up Disneyland for a day AND bungee jumped off a bridge. Not a bad weekend if you ask me!
I swear, I don't know why everyone doesn't live in California. The weather there is just amazing.
Day 1 (Friday) was checking out the USC campus (they had a little fair going on or something), hit Venice beach, of course, and attended a live taping of Jay Leno. Lucked out with front row seats and even got picked to go up on stage before the taping began to entertain the audience with a comedian! Saw the Christmas lights and Hollywood square after dinner that night. (The Christmas trees + warm weather really threw me for a loop...)
Day 2 (Saturday) was Disneyland! I love that place. I don't care how old I get, I think it will always be fun. But again, the shorts and Christmas decorations are just a weird combo... That night I went to the Lakers game, ended up with awesome seats for FREE (some guy standing out front just handed them to me) and got to see Kobe hit a last second game winning three. Pretty cool.
Day 3 (Sunday) was a long, beautiful hike through a canyon, and eventually jumping off a bridge. No big deal. (See link above for a video of it).
Day 4 (Monday) was driving up and down the 101 down to Laguna and Santa Monica Pier, before heading to the airport that evening.
(More detailed post and lots of pictures coming soon...)
