California Dreamin'





























Hi!
It's been a while, i know, i know... Happy to announce that i spent the best summer ever in USA (mostly in Maine),found the love of my life (!), went to California after many years of dreaming and got engaged in NYC!! What else a girl can wish for? Oh well... (the list never ends, right?!)
Anyhow, i m sharing with you some of my wonderful travel experience. In this post i would like to focus on my dream trip to Los Angeles (the "the city of angels")! Sure it is :)
I have been dreaming about seeing LA, honestly since i was a little girl. We used to have something like scrapbooks in elementary school which we would share with friends so everyone can write down their favorite things. When it comes to the question "What's your favorite city IN THE WORLD?", i would always wrote down "LA" even though i never knew anything about it but i heard from TV a lot (and i m talking about the kid who had 9-10 years!) Back in the '90s there was a popular TV show that everyone (including me!) was so obsessed about it "90210 Beverly Hills"...and i got there!!! Yeey!
To start the journey wasn't very easy since i decided to GO ALONE TO LA! How would a little girl like me go to a such a big city all by herself? I was determined to go but also a little afraid how will i get around. I m not willing to spent hours in subway or horrible traffic jam on LA highway. But driven by my many years desire to see the city of angels - i booked the flight ticket and the most important - the bus tour!!! There were many tours in LA and off course so many things to see while you are there but since i was spending only 3 nights in the city, i choose the right one that can pick you up from your hotel doors, take you to the most famous sightseeing places in LA, and by the end of the day, drop you off again in a front of your hotel doors. My choice was "A day in LA" tour (HERE) As my hotel was located in Santa Monica and just two blocks away from the beach and also from the bus starting point, it wasn't hard to find them. Jake was our tour guide and he was apsolutly amazing! Like some of the previous customers said "a total ROCK STAR!"
We started in Santa Monica, went to Venice Beach, Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive (haven't bought anything off course), had lunch at Farmers Marker, Griffith Park with Getty Museum, Hollywood sign, Walk of Fame and back to Santa Monica. On our way back we seen a lot of movie studios like CBS, FOX, Paramount Pictures...Our tour guide Jake was full with interesting informations like "this is where Mel Gibson got arrested for drunk driving, this was Arnold Schwarzenegger first gym and second gym, Jim Morrison's house, this was the place where Curt met Courtney, this was the restaurant where Elvis gave his new buick to one of the waitresses, Johny Dep's first music stage, Jim Carey first stand up comedy job" and many. many more...
At the end of the great day, i have follow the instructions of our tour guide and checked out the coolest roof top bar in my neighborhood in Santa Monica, called "Shangri-La Rooftop Lounge & Bar" (www.shangrila-hotel.com) and had margarita, off course :) Second day, i spent sun tanning on the beach in Santa Monica and got skin burned after ONLY 3 hours laying on the sand.
So thats it. The journey continued to San Francisco where i meet my fiancee but thats the story for another post ! Enjoy the photos and enjoy the ride, as Americans would say!

Zdravo!
Proslo je dosta vremena, znam... Srecna sam da mogu da vam saopstim da sam provela najbolje leto ikada u Americi (uglavnom u Mejnu), pronasla ljubav mog zivota, otisla do Kalifornije nakon mnogo godina mastanja o tome i kasnije se verila u Njujorku! Sta drugo devojka moze da pozeli? Pa sad...(lista nema kraja, zar ne?)
Bilo kako bilo, podelicu sa vama svoje divno putno iskustvo. U ovom postu bih zelela da se fokusiram na moj sanjarski put u Los Andjeles tkz."grad adnjela". Zasigurno to i jeste!
Sanjala sam o odlasku u LA, iskreno jos od kako sam bila mala devojcica. Imali smo spomenare u osnovnoj skoli koje smo razmenjivali i kad god bi dosla do pitanja koji mi je omiljeni grad na svetu , uvek bih napisala LA, iako nisam imala pojma nista o njemu ali sam cula sa TV-a dosta puta, Da napomenem da sam imala 9-10 god! Tada, u 90-tim je jako bila popularna serija 90210 Beverli Hils za kojom su svi bili ludi (moj omiljeni je bio Dilan, naravno,haha)
i konacno sam dospela tamo! Jeeej
Pocetak putovanja nije bio bas lak s obzirom da sam odlucila da idem u LA SAMA! Kako ce mala devojcica kao sto sam je jelte, da ide u toliko veliki grad? Bila sam resena da idem ali isto tako malo uplasena kako cu se snaci. Nisu mi se provodili sati u metrou ili na autoputu. Ali vodjena dugogodisnjom zeljom da vidim taj grad andjela, rezervisala sam kartu ali isto je najvaznije BUS turu! Postoje mnogo tura, i naravno toliko toga da vidite kad ste tamo ali s obzirom da sam imala samo 3 noci u gradu, odlucila sam se za pravu koja vas pokupi ispred vrata vaseg hotela, odvede vas do najpoznatijih mesta i na kraju dana vas opet ostavi ispred vrata vaseg hotela! Moj izbor je bio "A DAY IN LA TOUR". Posto je moj hotel bio dve ulice od plaze u Santa Monici i isto tako od polazne stanice, nije bilo tesko da ih nadjem. Dzejk je bio nas turisticki vodic i apsolutno je bio divan! Kao sto je neko od prethodnih musterija rekao "prava rok zvezda!"Krenuli smo iz Santa Monike, do Venice plaze, Beverli Hilsa i Rodeo Drajv gde naravno nisam nista kupila, rucali u Farmers Market pijaci, obisli Griffith park sa Getty muzejem, videli Holivudski znak, i vratili se nazad. Na putu smo videli mnoge interesantne filmske studije. Dzejk je bio pun informacija kao npr.ovde se Mel Gibson slupao, ovde su Rolling Stounsi dolazili na dorucak, ovde je Elvis Prisli poklonio svoj novi bjuik jednoj od konobarica...." Na kraju tog divnog dana, ja sam poslusala savet naseg vodica i otisla na jednu margaritu u baru koji se nalazi na krovu hotela Shangri-La. Sledeci dan sam uglavnom provela na plazi, suncala se i uspela da izgorim nakon SAMO 3 sata suncanja!
Tako da vam je to sve. Putovanje se nastavlja u San Francisku gde sam se nasla sa sadasnjim verenikom ali to je prica za neki novi post! Uzivajte u slikama i u voznji, sto bi rekli Ameri!
poljupci!
