After our final night all sleeping in the tents we got up ready for our last day together around Hollywood. We did end up stopping in Santa Barbra for a little bit but the weather matched our mood so we ended up just grabbing some breakfast and heading back to the van eager to get into town.
When we got into Hollywood we went to a spot on Hollywood Blvd where i had been to before to have a look at the sign. We did the walk of fame checking out the hand prints and celebrity stars before meeting again to head into The Hard Rock Cafe for our last meal together!! We had a little time afterwards to walk around a few of the shops and on behalf of the whole group I picked up a best driver oscar for Mike which he loved.
We spent the early evening in our rooms getting ready for a last night out in LA … as it worked out i was on my own in my room so i invited everyone down there where there was more space and we had some drinks and played cards till the taxis came. We ended up back down on Hollywood Blvd and bar hopped our way down the street meeting loads of people and really getting a different feel of the whole place compared to the day time. After some late night pizza and a squished in taxi ride back we all crashed.
The next morning we were all up for a final goodbye before the rest of the group went off to the beach for the day and me and April went off to our flights :( It was pretty bitter-sweet after spending so much time together to watch them walk away to carry on the rest of their tour but i know im going to see most of them again at home. Thanks for an awesome, amazing, totally ridiculous trip that really topped off my year living in the states …. now what trip to book next?
