The Old Presidio Historic Trail

And, now a blast from the past that was never written about (but completes our Mission journeys in California): the Presidio in San Diego. Presidio Park is the starting place for the Mission / Presidio trail in California and was the first permanent European settlement on the American Pacific Coast. Nothing of the original Presidio...

Museum of Death

Mar 15, 15 Museum of Death

Posted by in California, Featured, Los Angeles

I’m told that the Museum of Death attracts some really interesting people. I’m sure it does. Fans of death can be rather bizarre individuals. The museum focuses on all elements of death: murders, serial killers, how to embalm a body, what happens to bodies after they die, people who spent their life only understanding...

Hollywood Hotels

Mar 08, 15 Hollywood Hotels

Posted by in California, Featured, Los Angeles

I spend a large amount of time living out of hotels. I never really write about this aspect of travel because it’s really rather fluid and what one person might value in a hotel, might not be something I consider important (i.e. cost vs location vs a kitchenette). However, after staying in Hollywood for a while, I’ve discovered...

Posted by in California, Featured, Los Angeles

There’s a lot of crap on Hollywood Boulevard. Lot’s of shops that sell cheap tchotchke for breathtakingly high prices, museums that close as quickly as they open, cheap dive bars and restaurants that sell themselves based on their location on the strip… some of the people I know even question the value of the Hollywood...

Bob of the Boulevard

Posted by in California, Featured, Los Angeles

There’s hardly a person alive who doesn’t know Bob Hope or the impact he had on the entertainment industry. He is a star amongst stars and the inspiration for many who we now consider famous. This is why I was pleasantly surprised to discover his grave at the Mission San Fernando Rey de España. I had no idea that he was buried...
