Welcome on Board


On my last weekend in LA a friend and me went down to Long Beach, where the Queen Mary is stationed. We did a self guided as well as a ghost and haunted encounter tour. It was really interesting to get to parts of the ship, that you normally don’t get to see learning about the story of Queen Mary, a ship with quite a history. Whether being a transatlantic passenger ship, serving as the grey ghost during WW2, or now as a hotel and museum. I am not so sure about the ghost stories and encounters that people are talking about that happened, but oh well it was fun anyway and pretty scary at some points. You definitely got to see some of the not so nice areas of the ship. It must have been amazing leaving New York crossing the Atlantic Ocean on the ship when it was still operating. Being on the ship really made me want to do a cruise tour in the near future. So another thing on my bucket list 🙂






After that we went to the main area in Long Beach. I loved walking around at the harbor, along the pier with all its shops. The ice cream we got was so yummy, fitting the weather perfectly.










So on Saturday I was invited to make a road trip to Santa Babara by the other intern at my company, as she was going there with a couple of friends. It was a fun group of 7 people, mainly from different places in Europe. Santa Babara is a pretty city with a nice pier and cute shops. I might have to go there again to do some shopping, when I get the chance. Walking up and down the streets feels as if being in Europe a little as the houses have a Mediterranean touch.  On our way back we decided to stop at Manhattan Beach peer to have some self made brownies at the beach and to enjoy the sunset. It was gorgeous!
