LA To Vegas Road Trip via Route 66
Although it's a relatively short day trip of just four hours if you were to stay on Interstate 15 there are quite a few things to see along the way when you start researching it. So to help you nut out your perfect day trip, here's how we ended up spending, what ended up being close to seven hours on the road.
Airbnb or hotel - What style of accommodation to use?
The best way to decide on your style of accommodation is to write a list of what you are wanting to experience from your area or city. What is important to you for your holiday?
Disneyland CA - how we survived & other tips
Alot of people say you should get there early, but this will just end up being your first queue of the day, and you have a whole day of queues to look forward. My suggestion, and one that worked well for us is to get a good night's sleep, wake up casually with your natural body clock, make a big protein rich breakfast and then head out to Disneyland.
Eating for a long day at Disneyland
I cannot stress enough how important having a healthy, protein filled breakfast can be when taking on a day at Disneyland. Don’t be scared of making a big breakfast of bacon and eggs, throw in some spinach and mushrooms, swish it down with a glass of juice and a tea, really, you will thank me!
In-N-Out Burger review: 600 S. Brookhurst, Anaheim, CA
We ended up getting In-N-Out Burger twice during our stay in Los Angeles. Both times it was around 10:30 at night after spending 10 or so hours on our feet at Disneyland, so we really weren’t in the mood to look around for food let alone cook. First time was the mere need for quick, easy food. Second time was because the first time ended up being really good.
Cinnabons review: Upper Lot Universal Studios, Hollywood
Oh my goodness, the aroma wafting from the little Cinnabon shop as we were walking back out of Universal Studios in the upper lot was unmissable. We were all quite hungry by the time we had made it back up the top so we decided to get some Cinnabons for dessert later that night.
Grand Hyatt Review
Having booked a boat to Nusa Lembongan on the 24th of December at 12 noon, we had decided to stay at the Grand Hyatt in Nusa Dua for one night. Our flight arrived the day before but with baggage collection, customs and traffic we didn’t want to risk not making a 4pm fast boat to the island.
Nusa Lembongan is a short speed boat trip from Bali but a world away from the hectic hustle and bustle of Kuta and Seminyak. The island is approximately 4 km from end to and and if you ignore the few resort style hotels that have started to pop up you really do get to experience the authenticity of life, a certain laid back, back to basis kind of lifestyle.
