LA Basketball, baseball and shopping!

The three of us (Alex, ness and Olivia) all headed off on Sunday morning to Adelaide airport to begin our overseas trip to Los Angeles. Once we arrived we went straight to our accommodation to freshen up and go out for a late lunch at Doomies; a local vegan eatery with plenty of American classics before going to the Staples Centre to see a LA Lakers game!

It was a wonderfully easy way to start our holiday with lots of beer and great company!

On day two we headed into the city to check out The Grove for some shopping and the farmers market, the farmers market was a great place for a quick breakfast before we hit the shops and then we had lunch at the Cheesecake factory.Alex at the Grove
The Grove was such a beautiful place to shop with fountains and the most adorable tram.

Olivia and I were quite amused at the size of the standard sized soft drinks!

That afternoon we went and picked up Joe, Alex’s cousins from LAX then we drove out to Anaheim to see the Anaheim angels vs the Oakland Athletic baseball game! This was such a cool experience as Australia doesn’t have big baseball teams like the us

Although the angels didn’t win it was such a fun night that was made even more amazing as we got to catch up with our friends from LA Joe and Drea at their local in Huntington Beach!
