12032011 (A Day with an Aussie)
As mentioned in my previous post… Brandon’s cousin, Amy, came to visit. Apparently she’s been traveling the world this past year and SoCal was her final stop before the trip back home, so I had to do my best to make it worth while for her. Btw, did I mention that she’s from Australia?? DAT accent… /passout…/
On a separate note though, she may possibly be one of the most awesome people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Definitely a major highlight and a great way to end my year!
Anyways, I spent a day with Amy which included a road trip to San Diego… Let’s do this, shall we?

*** 1:26 pm***
I was looking for things to do in SD and found Balboa Park which had a bunch of museums and what not. Someone’s excited to go to the botanical house. It was strangely quiet in there because apparently plants don’t like noise…. reallyyy?? seriously??
We actually went to Coronado Beach after this, but no photos were taken and also the weather was real crap… so we’re just going to go ahead and skip to the next time mark.
*** 4:23 pm***
*** 6:03 pm***
This was pretty much the highlight of the entire day. I found this place called Vin De Syrah Spirit & Wine Parlor and basically it’s like this underground upscale lounge. It really is quite interesting… This is the stairway down because it literally is… underground.
On the way out, we randomly ran into this guy with a Magnum mustache who told us that we could have free mustache t-shirts… how could we say no?? So we wandered down to yet… another underground bar where he had this hot press machine that seals your custom made t-shirt. Random? I’d say yes… “I mustache you a question!!”
That pretty much concludes the night before we headed back into Hollywood with a 2.5 hour drive… which we actually had quite an interesting misunderstanding that led to this 2 hour epic debate, hahaha.
On Amy’s last night, her final request was to have an In-N-Out burger as a last meal. Check out this little fatty… “America… FXCK YEAH!”
We were also trying to make our way back up to the Griffith Observatory for a night view of the city, but park rangers closed off the road due to high winds that broke a bunch of trees the night before. So… we just ended up sitting on someone’s real nice stairway and made a mess. Still a great view though!
And you thought that was the end of the photos… I thought you’d know me by now.

Night #3, we drove to Westminster because I wanted her to try the spring rolls from Brodards.
She’s actually quite handy. Food bouquet! No one’s ever told her not to play with her food hahaha… seriously.
Goodbye for now Amy!!! I’m glad you made it home safely!
And that pretty much concludes this post.
