ContikiAnime Expo 99

Well, here's a day by day report on both my Contiki and AX trip(s)!! The photos are at the bottom of each page!

16th July 1999

Ah, the last day of our tour...

We went down through Santa Barbara, down to the beach.

I wanted to go lay in the sun for a while, but the morning was overcast and not very warm. Instead, for the morning, I went into the main street, which was the place for shopping.

I walked (limped, really) around the shops, looking around, until I found a beauty shop that did massages.

As my body was aching all over, probably from the fall, I went in for an hour massage. Ah, that was heavenly!

Unfortunately by the time I got out, it was time to head back to the coach. I thought that I'd be able to get back and have some time at the beach - maybe 30m, but the little trolly that takes people down to the beach was late. :p

I managed to get back just in time to go!! So I still didn't get any photos of Santa Barbara... but thanks to Eric, I have some Santa Barbara photos, taken by the beach!

We headed back for LA and Anaheim, passing the Hollywood sign to get there - ooh, I got a slightly better photo of the sign than last year. The tree is only partly in the way! ^_^;;

Anyway, we got back to Anaheim, to the hotel we started at, and had to say goodbye to everyone. It was sad having to say goodbye, but I had a few more days to look forward to - I was going to Anime Expo '99!
