Are you bored with all my beauty blabberings?? So here is something spicy for you.Before embarking on this beauty blog, I was managing my other blog which now is lying dormant.If you must know I did some fair amount of travelling in last few years.Perks of being a sailor’s wife!!And my blog was my travel diary.I did shared few of my travel sojourns with pictures, local information and some relevant information if by any chance you travel that place, it will be quite handy.So lets start and have a tour of your life.
PS:Everything is in present tense so bear with me.
“Now as a permanent nomad, am yet again will give you a virtual tour of my newest odyssey.The heart and soul of America ‘ City Of Angels” also called The Hollywood- Los Angeles.It is one of the most populous metropolitan area in the world and second largest in United states with the most ethically diverse county.
After being loaded from Mexico, we cruised towards California for discharging.I spin a cartwheel the day Mister has confirmed our next voyage.It took us one week to reach the port of los Angeles on Long beach. As the name indicates, its not a meager beach but a ful fledged city.For three days I was on wretched nerves due to being on anchorage and twiddle for our turn on berth.After like millionth year at crack of dawn we moved,We finally moved.
On our first bend into the port, we encountered our first surprise.Rendezvous with the world’s largest inflated duck It’s a six story tall floating rubber duck which to our later knowledge came to participate in the Tall ships festival LA
It lead us half a day to moor and secure the tanker and another couple of hours to clear the immigration. As His Nibs was busy playing chief officer, I had to (with a sad face) content myself chaperoned by Cadet Yang.
Hardly enough time to spend and being newbie to the city, we rolled our day in a big shopping arcade.By kiss of God our Pakistani cabbie mentioned some shopping festival.”Shop, hop and slumber fest”.The galleria was gushing with shoppers looking for best offers on display.Girl being girl, I also shopped to my hearts content From books to bag to blings to beauty aids I religiously followed the “shop till you drop” mime.
Following day was reserved for the famous “Universal Studios”.To ward off the early morning traffic, we kick started our tour at 7:00 a:m.With such exceptional roads to cruise on, reached our destination in less then one hour.But alas the taxi fare had almost ripped our pockets by charging $100 quids for the short drive.Anyways being the early birds and in front of the queue, we smoothly crossed the threshold with another $95 burnt hole to our pockets.Initially it was not crammed but with every hour to cuckoo’s calling, it became crowded.Well to be true it was worth spending.
Highlights of the place was the recount tram tour which cruised through the entire studio active backlot giving us glimpses of staged earthquakes, flash flood effects,airplane carnage and the original dungeon of King Kong.Next stop was the water roller coaster ride in Jurrasic park with life size Dinosaur.The 84 foot fall gives adrenaline rush to the core.The Revenge of the Mummy catapults at speeds up to 45 mph in virtual darkness.Transformers (inspired from movie) is a next generation 3-D thrill ride. WaterFront is the most mind blowing explosive actions with fire-fights,jumping jet-ski and in your face plane crash.Despicable me & Simpsons is a heartwarming hilarious rides.Animal Actors shows trained critters which put shame to pet-tricks.The rest mounts were as thrilling and exhilarating as the rest ones.
All the adrenalin quarry came to end at 114:00 hrs.We still had enough time in hand so took a taxi to Hollywood walk of fame and TCL chinese theatre. After clicking memories with the famous and not so,we headed towards the HOLLYWOOD sign which marked as the American cultural icon.By the time we finished capturing the prominent sign, I was tired down to my feets and call it a day.Adventure filled Day.
We still had another day to explore so venture out towards the Long Beach. Effervescent diamonds sparkling in the sand, vast shores, lapping waves, heaven all around. The vision I witnessed is going to be carved in my memory for a long time.
So now I have already sorted out your itinerary, book tickets and fly to this astounding place and have fun of your lifetime.
