California 2015

Jeg aner ikke hvilken dag, men en av dagene som var, muligens lørdag, dro vi til Beverly Hills og West Hollywood. Vi startet dagen på Rodeo Drive, der jeg, som nevnt, brukte altfor mye penger.. Uansett et veldig kult sted å ha sett! Spesielt fordi jeg elsker Pretty Woman ;-) Det var sinnsykt mange fine biler der også, så pappa, Karoline og Jens klarte faktisk å overleve turen sammen med meg de også.

Videre bestemte vi oss for å sjekke ut Hollywood-skiltet, man må liksom det. Vi søkte oss frem på Google Maps for å komme litt nærmere, egentlig forberedt på å leke dumme turister som ikke forstår hva "residents only" betyr. Vi kom oss ganske nærme til slutt, uten å trosse noen skilt, ha ha! Til slutt orket vi ikke alle turistene, så vi tenkte oss en tur på Buffalo Wild Wings (som er min #1-fav!!!), men den jeg fant var tydeligvis midt på Walk of Fame, så turistene kom vi oss ikke akkurat unna... Walk of Fame var egentlig bare en skuffelse, ha ha. Så lite og ordinært. Noe helt annet enn hva jeg forventet!

I don't know when, but one of these past few days (maybe Saturday), we decided to go to Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. We started the day with Rodeo Drive, where I, as mentioned, spent way too much money.. Anyway, a really cool place! Especially since I love Pretty Woman ;-) There were so many cool cars too, so dad, Karoline and Jens managed to survive as well.

After Rodeo Drive, we decided to check out the Hollywood sign, I feel like you have to. We used Google Maps to get as closed as possible, actually prepared to play stupid tourists who don't know what "residents only" means. We got pretty close without even passing a "residents only" sign, ha ha! After a little while, we got sick of all the tourists, so we decided to head to Buffalo Wild Wings (which is my #1 fav!!!!), but the one I took us to was apparently right at Walk of Fame, so we didn't really end up in a tourist free place, ha ha.. Walk of Fame was, by the way, such a disappointment! I was expecting this huge and fancy thing, but it was so small and ordinary.

Jeg har hørt om In-N-Out så mange ganger, men det finnes ikke (tror jeg) rundt der jeg bodde, så jeg har aldri fått testet det. Dermed måtte vi jo en tur innom da vi kom over en ;-) Burgeren kunne minne litt om den fra Max, altså, veldig god. Ikke wow, men bedre enn McDonald's. Chipsen var litt så som så, men et veldig kult konsept, hvor det kun finnes noen få valgmuligheter. McDonald's sin meny er så overveldende! Hele greia er veldig 60-tallet egentlig. Absolutt verdt å sjekke ut, om det så bare er pga. sjarmen.

-

I've heard about In-N-Out so many times, but I don't think there are any on the "other side" of the states, so I've never actually tested it. So of course we had to stop when we saw one ;-) The burger was good - I mean, no wow burger, but better than McDonald's. The french fries was....nah....not the best, but the whole concept is pretty cool, and I love that you have so few options, ha ha. McDonalds' menu is so overwhelming! The whole thing is like stepping into the 60's. Absolutely worth checking out, if not for the burgers, check it out because it's charming.

Igår var vi en tur i Beverly Hills og kikket litt. Jeg brukte litt (altfor) mye penger på noe som jeg endelig kan krysse av listen min. De måtte bestilles fra New York så de kommer på tirsdag, viser dere da. Ellers var vi superturister og så på Hollywoodskiltet, før vi kjørte hjemover. Jens, jeg og søsteren min vurerer å ta turistbuss idag for å se alle kjendishjemmene, ha ha. Noen erfaringer?

Da vi kom hjem stod middag for tur, og så lagde de vi bor hos drinker, så kvelden gikk med på å sippe altfor gode drinker mens vi spilte Blackjack. Jeg var så trøtt til slutt at jeg omtrent sovnet før hodet traff puten, og dermed rakk jeg heller aldri å skrive noe blogginnlegg før jeg la meg. Så god morgen fra meg, og god kveld til dere!

We went to Beverly Hills to look around yesterday, and I spent way too much money on something I've wanted for a while, so I can finally cross it off my list. They had to order them from New York, so they'll arrive on Tuesday - I'll show you then. Other than that, we decided to be super tourists and visited the Hollywood sign, before we drove home. Jens, my sister and I are contemplating doing the tourist bus to look at celebrity homes, ha ha. Any experiences?

When we got home, dinner was basically on the table (lucky us) and the guys we're staying with made drinks, so the rest of the evening we just had drinks and played Blackjack. At the end, I was so tired, I almost fell asleep before I even made it to bed. Thus no update until now! So, good morning from me and good evening to you guys.

Jeg har helt glemt å vise dere disse bildene fra Solvang! Vi stoppet innom der første dagen på veien, etter å ha sett det på KUWTK, he he, og det var såå koselig. Det er litt morsomt at vi oppsøker nordiske steder når vi er i California, men det er litt gøy å se hvor likt det er ;-) Vi spiste lunsj på en liten café før vi kjørte videre, så vi fikk ikke sett så veldig mye. Slike byer bidrar i hvert fall til å opprettholde synet på oss fra norden - vikinger!

Vi visste ikke at Neverland var i nærheten, hvis ikke hadde vi dratt innom der også.. Too bad! Vi får heller gjøre det neste gang. Listen for "neste gang" begynner å bli ganske lang, ha ha.

-

I completely forgot to show you these pictures of the town Solvang! We stopped there the first day on the road, after seeing it on KUWTK, he he, and it was sooo cozy. It is actually kinda ironic that we see these nordic places when we're in California, but it is fun to see the resemblance ;-) We had lunch at a small cafe before we hit the road again, so we didn't get to see that much. These kinds of places is for sure the reason why everyone thinks we're vikings, ha ha!

We didn't know Neverland was right by, otherwise we would've stopped there too. Too bad! We'll do it next time. The list of things to do "next time" is starting to get long, ha ha.

Idag var vi en tur på Venice Beach, og så har vi egentlig bare spist pizza og slappet av. Nå er jeg lei av å sitte rolig og se dagene forsvinne, så imorgen skal vi endelig til Beverly Hills og kjøre litt rundt for å se etter kjendiser ;-) Ha ha. Hvis dere har noen LA-tips må dere forresten si til meg. Jeg er litt blank.

-

Today, we went to Venice Beach and then we just had some pizza and relaxed. Now I'm tired of watching the days go by, so tomorrow, we're finally heading to Beverly Hills, and we're gonna look for some celebrities ;-) Ha ha. If you have any LA tips for me, please let me know.

Her er noen bilder fra Studio Tour'en på Universal Studios. Wisteria Lane eller ei, kult var det uansett :-) Det var blant annet utstilt biler fra forskjellige filmer, de viste hvordan de kunne lage flom i en meksikansk by, flyet fra War of the Worlds osv. Det var også to 3D-attraksjoner fra King Kong og Furious 7, som begge var veldig kule. Neste gang skal jeg definitivt booke VIP experience, og ringe samme dagen for å høre om Wisteria Lane er åpent ;-) Ha ha. Hvis du er glad i filmer og serier anbefaler jeg Studio Tour på det sterkeste - du kjenner igjen veldig mye.

Here are some pictures from the Studio Tour at Universal Studios. Wisteria Lane or not, it was cool anyway :-) You could, amongst other things, see cars from different movies, a flood in a Mexican village, the airplane from War of the Worlds etc. There were also two 3D attractions from King Kong and Furious 7, which were both really cool. Next time, I'm definitely booking a VIP Experience, and I'm gonna call the same day to make sure Wisteria Lane is open ;-) Ha ha. If you like movies and TV shows, I highly recommend the Studio Tour - you'll recognize a lot.

This was all we saw of Wisteria Lane....

Universal Studios var tidenes skuffelse! Neida, så ille var det ikke. Men jeg hadde gledet meg sånn til Studio Tour og Wisteria Lane, men det var stengt pga. innspilling :( Vi snakker massiv skuffelse. Ellers var køene 60+ minutter, så det ble bare Studio Tour og Water World på oss. Veldig kule uansett da, begge to!

Vi dro rett hjem etter vi var ferdige, og har bare rukket å spise middag og spille blackjack. Tiden går så fort her! Imorgen skal vi på stranden, endelig ;-) Det er altfor varmt til å gjøre noe annet på dagen, men det gjør ingenting, he he.

-

Universal Studios was the biggest disappointment of all time! Okay, I'm exaggerating. But I had been looking forward to the Studio Tour and Wisterlia Lane, but it was closed because they were using it to film :( We're talking massive disappointment. Other than that, all the lines were a 60+ minutes wait, so we only got to go on the Studio Tour and Water World. They were both really cool anyway though!

We went straight home afterwards, but time flies, and all of a sudden it was 11 PM and we'd only had dinner and played blackjack. Tomorrow we're finally going to the beach ;-) It is way to hot to do anything else during the day, but I'm not so sad about that, he he...

Noen bilder fra gårsdagen! Et veldig fint sted, absolutt. Litt mye mennesker for min smak, men hva kan man forvente? ;-) Vi må nok tilbake til Third Street Promenade en annen dag, for det var så mye shopping der, men butikkene stengte rett etter vi kom. Jeg rakk bare å få med meg noen bukser fra H&M, bl.a. et par culottes til $5. Kupp!

Jeg har forresten seriøst begynt å vurdere å ta en tatovering, iiiih. Litt skeptisk til å fly hjem i så mange timer med et sår på den måten, men hva gjør man ikke for skjønnheten? Ha ha. Nå må jeg løpe, alle andre venter på meg. Vi skal på Universal, som sagt, og jeg gleder meg som et barn!!

-

Some pictures from yesterday! A very nice place indeed, but there were so many people. But hey, what can you expect? ;-) We'll probably have to go back to Third Street Promenade some other day, cause the shopping was excellent, but it all closed right after we got there. I only got to grab a few pants from H&M, among those culottes for $5. Bargain!

I have, by the way, started to seriously consider getting a tattoo, iiiih. I don't know how I feel about travelling for almost 24 hours with a new tattoo, but what don't you do for eauty? Ha ha. Well, I've gotta run, everyone's waiting for me. We're going to Universal, as mentioned, and I feel like a child!! So excited

Vi har endelig ankommet Los Angeles, og idag har vi sjekket ut Santa Monica Pier og Third Street Promenade. De siste to timene har vi spilt blackjack, og gud, så gøy det var, ha ha! Vi snakker blackjack-kvelder fremover altså. Avhengighetsskapende! Imorgen tidlig skal vi til Universal Studios, så nå er det kvelden her. God natt ;-)

-

We have finally arrived in Los Angeles, and today we've checked out Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade. These past couple of hours, we've been playing blackjack, and oh my god, it's so much fun! We're talking blackjack nights every now and then from now on. Addictive! Tomorrow, we're hitting Universal Studios, so I'm going to bed. Good night ;-)

California 2015, Tips

Igår spiste vi middag på Hotel del Coronado, og hallo, for et hotell! Hotellet er fra 1888 og en av de største trebygningene i USA. Det har huset flere presidenter og kjendiser, blant annet Marilyn Monroe. Grisedyrt hotell riktignok, men utrolig fint ;-) Vi spiste pizza på Eno, og den var så sinnsykt god. Italiensk, tynn bunn, men tykk og god skorpe. Herregud, den smeltet i munnen! Om dere noen gang er i San Diego må dere absolutt ta en tur innom. Det kan lønne seg å reservere bord på forhånd i høysesongen forresten.

Nå er vi på vei til Los Angeles, og blir der den siste uken. Faktisk litt vemodig å dra fra resortet vi bodde på, ha ha, men jeg skal absolutt tilbake. San Diego er en ny favoritt!

Forresten! Jeg er ukens blogg på Nouw, og hvis du vil lære noe du kanskje ikke visste om meg, kan du lese "intervjuet" her.

Yesterday, we had dinner at Hotel del Coronado, and heello, what an hotel! It is from 1888 and is one of America's largest wooden buildings. Plenty of presidents have stayed there, as well as celebrities like Marilyn Monroe. It is super expensive, but incredibly nice ;-) We had pizza at Eno, and it was delicious. Italian pizza, but with a thicker crust. Oh my God, it melted in my mouth! If you ever find yourselves in San Diego, you have to stop by this place. You should book a table if you're here during the busy season.

We're on our way to Los Angeles now, and we're staying there for the next week. I didn't want to leave the resort we were staying at, ha ha, but I'm definitely coming back. San Diego is a new favorite of mine!

By the way! I'm the blog of the week at Nouw, so if you wanna learn a couple of things you may not know about me, you can read the "interview" here. Just copy and paste into Google Translate.
