So, here’s how it went…
My older sister Karyna, my guest, and I flew to Burbank on the morning of Monday, December 1st. It was my first time on a plane in over 16 years.
After landing in Southern California, we took a cab to our hotel stay at the Sheraton Universal, located right out front of Universal Studios. With the rest of the day ahead of us, we decided to take a stroll down City Walk (we decided against going to the amusement park since it was pricey, especially since we wouldn’t have had a full day there).
Talk about your over-stimulants!
We had lunch, but got bored as soon as we finished. So we took the metro (lots of firsts while on this trip… I never been on the metro before!) to… Hollywood! We did your typical tourist thing of checking out and snapping picture in front of the sights.
Sadly, we got bored again. We called up Karyna’s friend John, and he picked us up and took us to dinner at his favorite place to eat in L.A. “The Kitchen”, I believe it was called. And he was right. Best. Food. Ever.
Then we stopped at Pink Berry.
That’s basically where Day 1 ends. Afterwards, John dropped us off at our hotel. K and I decided to wind down by watching TV in our room until we got ready for bed and went to sleep.
