Wow – I just realize how much we did on this day by recapping it. We started very early on this day (we did that pretty much the whole trip) at 8 o’clock. We went to downtown LA first and made stops at Disney Concert Hall and then Historic District.
There was a fruit stand in downtown LA. The lady made really good fruit salads by using fresh products and then she seasoned it with lemon and mexican chili seasoning (Tajin). I never tried the combination of spiciness with fruits like Watermelon or Honeydew. But let me tell you – it was delicious! We had it pretty much everyday on our trip and we also bought the seasoning to take home so we can remake it.
Afterwards we went to Beverly Hills. It was so exciting to finally go there. Which girl doesn’t want that right? We walked to Rodeo Drive which is a street in Beverly Hills with all the luxury shops like Louis Vuitton and Chanel. Most of the celebrities shop there so don’t wonder when you see very expensive cars there – it is normal.
One of the two highlights of the day was definitely Hollywood! You feel like you are in spotlight walking over the walk of fame (hehe) and obviously you got to take a picture in front of the Hollywood sign. How many opportunities like that do you get in life?
Second highlight of the day was Universal Studios. It is one of the major studios in the US and plays a big part in the movie industry. Many worldwide known movies were shot there and it was just an unbelievable feeling to be standing there. It also includes a theme park so you never get bored. I loved the universal tour itself. We were able to see different sets. One of them was that of Fast and the Furious. We also went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (although I got to admit I never watched a movie as I have not read the books yet; I know I should), Jurassic Park and oh I loved the King Kong 3D experience. It was far the best 3D experience ever which I have experienced until now.
The day was full of new experiences and emotions. We saw so many things in just one day and I still haven’t digested everything but writing about it helps a lot. Writing for me really helps to process things and my feelings. Its helps to recapture moments, memories and emotions I had at that specific moment.
