Remember me?

Ok, I admit it’s my fault for being a slacker here. There’s no excuse and I refuse to say sorry yet again. What I am excited to share is our recent road-trip to Los Angeles.

And man, that was one heck of a journey. Come along, let me show you all the sight-seeing we did. Well, almost.

The infamous signage at Beverly Hills. Remember 90210? 🙂

Rodeo Dr is lined with name brand boutiques. Very classy that equals to pricey!!

And yes, Beverly Hills is scattered with vintage cars.


Santa Monica Pier.

Don’t be fooled by the summery hues in the photos. It was freaking chilly that day!

The infamous Hollywood Walk of Fame at Hollywood Hills.

The view of infamous “Hollywood” signage seen from Hollywood Hills.

Kodak Theatre, where all glamorous and glitz’s of Hollywood gather for awards. It’s a place filled with stench of drugs. I am not kidding. Overall, the experience at Hollywood Hills (walk of fame etc) was so unpleasant.

We miss you, Michael!!!

And that’s about it. I mean, the trip was short and sweet but no short of drama of course. If you followed us on Twitter and Instagram, you’ve probably knew about an accident.

To cut a long story, short.. A lady rear-ended into our 20 day old car. I cried, but most importantly we all survived. Calfornian’s are the most dangerous drivers. Ever.

Don’t tell me its otherwise 😉


Have you been to Los Angeles before?

SR Ayyangar — thank you and it’s definitely a must visit since you are much closer to LA than I am 🙂

Oh dear–so sorry to hear about the accident! I agree with you about Kodak theater and the walk of fame. Not really pleasant.

Angela — thanks dear, we are fine now 🙂

Wow. I want to go to California but I’m more interested in going to the Napa Valley, San Francisco and see the redwoods. Of course, I would make a bit stop in Hollywood… 🙂

Susi — it was an impromptu trip. Otherwise, I would prefer Napa, SFO as well. Perhaps next time? 😀

Sorry to hear about the accident, but LA people drive crazy!!! Not in the Bay Area, I promise, so come to SF next. 😉

Thanks for sharing pictures from LA – we go there once in a while but I’m not very familiar like my husband. LA was my first destination when I first came to the US. 🙂

Great post. Glad you two survived your accident. I have been to LA about 26 years ago. Not my favorite place. I did however, love San Diego. Beautiful.

CHS — thanks dear. Thank god for his blessings. My husband has traveled to San Diego and he didn’t like it. Well, I might!

I have heard about the driving horror stories of LA. Don’t think I can ever drive there! But would love to visit the place. Should be fun!

Shumaila — For a visit, it’s a nice place. Not a great place, but 1 visit will do. I can’t wait to visit San Francisco though 🙂

Nava — thanks dear 🙂

Dear Kiran,

Looks like a nice trip. I can see it’s a chilly day since there are so many people walking on the beach but none in the water LOL.

23 Ameena April 27, 2013 at 12:13 PM

Sorry about the accident (I realize this post is old) and yes CA drivers are crazy! We have to be, the traffic drives us insane.

The car your hubby took a pic of? It’s in front of that store 24/7. So funny.

Beauty outside India. Awesome place and snaps. Loved them all. Keep posting.
