A Travellerspoint blog

Paradise found :)

- but had to leave for the USA

sunny 25 °C

Hi!

Now it's really been a while since the last blog, and in the meantime I've had the week of my life on Samoa :) It was just the way you picture a tropical island paradise; White beaches, palm trees, turqoise water and an open Fale' right on the beach :) Most of the time we have just been sunbathing, snorkelling or swimming, and it has been great :) We stayed in one place the whole time, a small resort called Taufua beach fales, located on the south-east tip of the island of Upolu. If I ever have the chance, i'm going back sometime!

Tuesday afternoon we arrived in LA. After giving our fingerprints and snapshots to the immigration-officers, we ended up in a hostel located close to Venice beach. We went for a walk down to the beach, and saw the famous "baywatch"-lifeguard-towers :) Wednesday we decided to go to Universal studios, to be real tourists you know ;) We actally passed the set of Desperate Housewifes while they were filming.... Couldn't see any of the actors though :( We also stopped by the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and saw Sonia Henies hand-, foot- and skateprints :)

Apart from that, LA did'nt really appeal to me, and that's why we're currently in San Diego (or more precisely, a little north of San Diego, that is Ocean Beach). This place is really nice (kind of like the small surfer-towns in Australia), but still we are planning on going to Mexico tomorrow :) Tijuana is only 30 k's away, and we'll go there by trolley :) We'll be drinking tequila and corona and eating burritos all day, and we also plan to go shopping for mexican dresses :)

I will try to post some pictures from Tonga and Samoa if this computer will allow me to.

See ya!
