Impressions from the West Coast III

We loved the coast line and the magnificence of the landscape. We loved the towns and the big City Los Angeles! Without further ado:  Here are some more images! You can click to enlarge the photos in a image show.

Beautiful Spanish Mission style

Our journey came to an end here, after visiting the Pier and center of Santa Monica we headed to the airport and returned home to a glistening and cold, but welcoming New York! We have many memories and new impressions. The children LOVE California and my husband and I have gotten the feeling, especially LA has made incredible progress since we knew the city more then 20 years ago. It is cleaner and brighter, with amazing cuisine all over and felt safe to us, wherever we went.
What a big and wonderful country we live in...We are so grateful for all!

  1. Hello Victoria

    You are an observant traveller and I love your photos of your trip. California is such a diverse state and there is so much to see and do. I am happy the trip was enjoyed by your entire family

    1. Thank you,Helen!
      It was a wonderful trip and we are filled with the most delightful memories. We are so happy to be able to do this together with our children, since these memories will last hopefully for a long time and will inspire further journeys,
      once they are older.
