Ok, I’m going to be backlogging since I barely got any internet in a few cities I went to, and I didn’t have a computer (only an iPad) so I couldn’t actually upload any videos whilst I was on my trip.

I’ve landed in America.
I feel like… it has always been my wildest dream to go to the other side of the world. Being in Australia, it’s known to be expensive to travel because we are so far below the rest of the world.. so to be there… in America, seemed like a dream come true. Wooohooo!
At the airport. First thought: “Shxt, my luggage is already 16kgs”. Not a good start to my holiday.
My first stop is Los Angeles. I don’t know too much about geography and prior to this trip, I didn’t even know where LA was situated on a map (apart from the fact that it’s in America). But I knew one thing, I had to check out one place. Beverly Hills.
Okay, now, we get off our flight and settle into our hotel.. checking if I brought everything.
toothbrush, toothpaste, tick.
shampoo, deep conditioner, body wash, facial wash, hair serum, tick. tick. tick.
foundation, eyeliner, powder, eyebrow pencil, naked palette, tick. tick. tick.
pajamas, ugg boots, coats, tick.
(and the list goes on…)
Gosh, a girls life is difficult. Mr.CG’s luggage was about 10kgs to start with.. in which I think the bag weighed about 2-3kg of it!
At LA airport
The first day is usually a “resting” day. After a 12+ hour flight, we were so exhausted. Helllooo bed.
5pm. We wake up. We get ready and we’re told we have a hotel limo chauffeur to drive us out to Beverly Hills!!
6pm. We are all set to go to Beverly Hills!!!
We mainly went to Rodeo Dr and Santa Monica Blvd, but the whole city of Beverly Hills was amazing!! I could just feel the existence of the rich and famous beside me!!
We spotted this extremely expensive and awesome sports car parked on the street outside Bijan – also with the number plate Bijan. Everyone stopped to take photos of this car. LOLOL.
Shopping in action!! At Juicy Couture.
Christmas tree outside on Rodeo Dr. It is soo beautiful.
8pm. Very hungry!! We went by the very touristy way to find a restaurant. We stole some hotel tourist brochures and began our eating adventure.
10pm. Home time.
The christmas tree at our hotel!
25th December 2011
I’m on my way to Disneyland today!!!!!
My outfit for Disneyland. I bought that jacket from Beverly Hills – Juicy Couture!
On the coach to Disneyland
Awesome welcoming fountain!
Our citypass! I drew a mickey mouse face on my signature!
We thought this was only in Disneyland but it turns out it is everywhere!!! We got about 10 coins stamped!
The Disneyland map!
We found Jasmine and Aladdin!!!!
Pretzels!!!!!! Super yummy flavoured pretzels!!
We also found the Night before Christmas!!!
Then we lined up for over an hour to take a picture with Winnie the Pooh and friends!… LOL.
That’s when we spotted…. mini Santa Claus!
My favourite out of the three!!! Tigger!!!!!! *giggles*
Eeyore looked so sad!!!
And Pooh! <3
One of my favourite pictures of Mr.CG & I. Let’s frame this, shall we?
Then we had Churros!!! Damn, we ate alot of food that day at Disneyland but it was irresistible!!!!
Look!! They even had a grass cut statue of Dumbo!!!
Here is where I lined up after some kids to sit on this teapot… so.. that I can be apart of the cool kids.
We actually lined up about 2 hours to take pictures with these Princesses. I think Mr.CG was more excited than I was about these princesses….. the pictures of our photos are further down because we saw this.. and then came back after we toured around a little more.
There was a shop filled with costumes and other accessories for the princesses!!! I love Tinkerbell!
This is probably the best part of Disneyland. We got this huge… turkey leg.. that I don’t think I’ll ever forget! It reminds me so much of the Flintstones!
Okay, then we go back and take photos with the princesses. Even after we got back, the line was just as long.. as we decided to line up. Yes.. about 2 hours in total!
I feel a little embarrasssed… but I don’t think I quite know who the first princess is… then it’s Ariel (Little Mermaid).. then Jasmine (Aladdin). Those were obvious. Is the first one Cinderella?
Next, we went to line up to see Mickey!
I believe our journey pretty much ended there. We were so tired after this so we stopped to shop for souvenirs.
The Mickey Mouse hand gloves I showed you guys in my earlier blog post!!!!
The castle in Disneyland at night!!!
Duffy!!!!!! I madly wanted one of these but I don’t think Mr.CG wanted to carry this to Vegas, Boston, Washington, Rhode Island, Niagara Falls, NYC… and then back to Sydney. LOL.
And I love Marie!! She’s so pretty!
This is… supposed to be Tigger….
It started to snow at night!!! We actually went on Christmas Day (if you didn’t already realise) so the snow actually gave us the White Christmas dream we have always wanted. Ticking that off the “to-do” list now!
All in all, I loved Disneyland. It brought back so many childhood memories and allowed me to share and spend these memories with Mr.CG who I wasn’t fortunate enough to meet before my teens.
Looking forward to more fun, but exhausted now!
And the journey continues….
