Travels in Los Angeles and San Diego, California

Earlier this year, Monel, Phoebe, and I took off out of Chicago for a week of vacation in Southern California. It was the first trip for the three of us, and it was a great one. We got to grow and bond together, which was really nice. Monel’s sister and her husband live out there so we stayed with them while we were there along with one night at her cousins place in L.A.

We got to see some amazing things while visiting the area and I had no idea how much there is to do in the San Diego area.

Visiting the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and Sea World were all amazing sites to see. Of course we got to visit Pacific Beach where we played on the beach and got some sushi 🍣 and other delicious foods. I got to try Uni for the first time, it was very good. Unfortunately Monel had an allergic reaction to it, so I had to run to the store and get some medicine to help with that. 


We got to ride the big air balloon at the safari park:

Here are some pictures from our dolphin 🐬 encounter at Sea World:
We also got to see a 4-D movie of Ice Age while visiting:


We went to Balboa park a few times and got to enjoy some of the great sites there. Here are a few pictures we took inside the park and inside the zoo:


We had a lot of fun in the area and hope to go back someday and see some more things. One of the other great spots we got to visit was in La Jolla. There were Sea lions and tons of sea shells that Phoebe was collecting. 

When the trip was coming to a close we ended up going to see the naval museum for the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier. It was great to see inside the ship and learn about the way that the sailors lived on that ship. 

On our way back to L.A. before we had to fly out we went and explored around Hollywood. It was pretty interesting to see the walk of fame and view Madame Toussettes Wax Museum. Some pretty interesting things to see in Hollywood but I must say it wasn’t as nice as many would think. We of course had to get our picture taken with the Hollywood sign as well because why wouldn’t we πŸ™‚

We found the only star that you can’t walk on! 😁😁😁⭐️
We did get some delicious food for breakfast on one of our last days along with all the other tasty food we ate. 

Overall it was a great trip and got to see a lot of the Southern California area while visiting. I would definitely recommend visiting if you haven’t been before to explore and see what it has to offer. There is so much more that we didn’t even get to see but maybe another time we will.

Hope you enjoy this post and all the pictures!

Stay classy!

Adios,

-Mark
