Visiting Santa Monica on our last trip to the States was most definitely the highlight of the whole trip (contrary to the relative let down of Vegas).
We stayed in a sweet boutique hotel, right on the beach and Jeanne & I got to spend a blissful 3 days just chilling out, doing some random shopping and eating great food. Our kind of holiday to be precise.
The picture above is from the Santa Monica Pier, which made me feel like part of The O.C. (the TV show), as I could run into Ryan, Marissa, Seth or Summer at any time. I was a pretty big fan of the show back in the day okay. Don't judge me.
