Travel Guide

San Diego – Hotel Del Coronado

Helen works as a pastry chef at the legendary Hotel Del Coronado, set on a tiny island across the bay from San Diego. It’w where Some Like itHot was filmed and still attracts big movie stars today – in fact the day Helen called to say Russell Crowe had just checked in was the day we finally quit our assorted procrastinations and booked our flights.

Los Angeles – The Beverly Hills hotel

“On my God!” That’s where the Osbournes have been filming. Zoe squeaks. “I Heard Kelly Osbourne checked in there for two week weeks when she had flu so her mother wouldn’t catch it”


“Did you know that the biggest park in the state is actually Yosemite National Park?”

“On to stunning Bridal Veil waterfall. Sam tells us how pure the tap water is in Yosemite and ridicules the fools who pay for imported mineral water while in the park”

“From the chaparral-covered foothills to the high Sierra Crest there are 4 – 600 black bears roaming Yosemite. We often get asked whether you can outrun a bear. Well the fastest humans can run is 23 mph . A bear can run between 25 and 30mph…”
