Santa Monica & Beyond

1. Santa Monica palms, 2. On Venice Beach boardwalk, 3.Lunch at the Sidewalk cafe, 4. On Santa Monica pier, 5. The original muscle beach, 6. Beverly Hills, 7. True Blood set at WB studios, 8. On Rodeo Drive

It is day three of my Californian roadtrip and it has been amazing so far! Lovely weather, delicious food, beautiful surroundings & fun touristy activities.

Yesterday we spent on Venice Beach boardwalk & at Santa Monica pier, which was so much fun. There were so many interesting (& crazy) people to watch!

Today we drove into Beverly Hills and ate lunch at Nate 'N Al's deli. Best tuna melt sandwich EVER. I swear! Then we went into full on tourist mode and went on the Warner Brothers Studio tour. It was fantastic; it lasted two and a half hours and our guide was full of interesting facts and stories. We saw the back-lots where so many famous movie scenes had been filmed (I think my favourite was seeing the building that is the orphanage in Annie, because, seriously, Hard Knock Life is always in my head hehe) and we saw buildings used in current shows like Shameless US, Pretty Little Liars & True Blood.

I love my favourite TV shows almost as much as fashion and I am a huge True Blood fan so I was rather excited to be standing outside Merlotte's bar, next to Sheriff Andy Bellefleur's car!! Later on in the tour we found out they had just started filming a scene!

We leave Santa Monica to drive up the coast towards San Francisco tomorrow, so I will update soon! :)
