Imagine you are a film buff. Probably, the biggest and one day you are given a chance to go to the La La Land of America, Los Angeles, what would your reaction be? Well, I FAINTED!! YES, and when I woke up, it was the best half-sleep EVER!!!

Los Angeles was undoubtedly my favorite of all the places I visited during my trip to ‘Merica. Even though I only spent only 2 days there, I saw pretty many things, did some amazing stuff and came across some breathtaking experiences, therefore, in this blog, I am so so excited to tell you how I spent my 2 gorgeous days in  Hollywood.

Before L.A happened to me, I had heard bunch of bad stuffs about this place. Like, the traffic is horrible, people are rude and many other non-pleasant stuffs therefore my expectations weren’t on cloud 9. But once I landed, it was like I am Tom Hanks from ‘The Terminal’, confused yet so thrilled to step onto the stage!

That’s what L.A does to you… It turns you into a protagonist from an Oscar-winning movie. Whoever you wanna be. Be it Gerard Butler from ‘P.S. I Love You’ or Rudolph Valentino from ‘Blood and Sand’. It’s all about how creative you can be with your character inside your head.

P.S: I would literally kill to be Marlon Brando. :p  OH THAT GUY!!! <3

The Hollywood Walk of Fame

If I must summarize this place, I would say GOLD. Yes, because this stretch of 2 kilometers holds the entire history of Motion Pictures, Television, Radio, Phonograph & Comedy. A star has it all.

I got the chance to get a picture with Tom Cruise’s & Johnny Depp’s doppelganger. Oh God they were almost real!!!!

 

The TCL Chinese Theatre

From premiering movies such as The King of Kings in 1927, to getting converted to the largest IMAX auditorium in the world, The TCL Chinese Theatre welcomes atleast 4 million tourists from all over the world. Built at a cost of $2 Million at that time, this attraction is a must visit on the Hollywood Boulevard. No matter what, WATCH A MOVIE HERE to make the best out of your visit.

 

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

After you are done clicking SELFIES with solid star shaped floors, its better you decide to go to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. This is my 6th visit to a wax museum but it was also the 600th time when I was clicking pictures of each and every statue in the museum. It felt so glamorous among those fake statues of Jimmy Fallon or Forest Gump.

It’s a must visit place at the Hollywood Boulevard.

 

Rodeo Drive

Undoubtedly, one of the most famous streets in LA pretty well known from one of the greatest films of all time, Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gerd.

The street known for its insanely luxurious stores is a three block stretch which is also known as the Golden Triangle.

I still remember my favorite scene shot here, when Julia Roberts is kicked out of an expensive boutique because she looked like she could not afford it and then she comes back the next day with dozen many shopping bags and yells, “Big Mistake. Big! Huge!”. I am sure I have seen this movie more than 10 times.

Day 2

Universal Studios

I have always been a WB fan but that does not mean other production studios does not make good movies or don’t work hard enough on a movie. Universal Studio is another big GIANT when it comes to production studios. Some of the great movies were created right here in this studio like Psycho, Jurassic Park, Apollo 13, etc. if I sit down to name all of them, this blog will become the most boring one ever or MAYBE the most exciting one :p. Depends on your interest.

Being a film buff, a theme park lover and an insane Harry Potter lover, I just had to be excited about the fact of visiting The Universal Studios.

PS: You will also see the “City Hall” from “Back to the Future”.

 

Griffith Observatory

Griffith Observatory is on the edge of the hill from which you get a spectacular view of the city of Los Angeles. Also, the telescope lets you to witness the entire city very nicely like the downtown St. Monica Mountains and the world famoussssssss Hollywood Sign that sits on the edge of another hill. It’s not only about the views but also the famous architecture. Oh Gosh I loved the wall mural (if it was one :p) just above the Faucault Pendulum as soon as you enter the Observatory. You can experience the “Gateway to Cosmos” and “Samuel Oschin Planetarium”.

PS: One entire song from La La Land was shot here. 

 

Malibu, the Beach City
The Manhattan Beach
Thank You Los Angeles!

Day Trip to Copenhagen

“If Copenhagen were a person, that person would be generous, beautiful, elderly, but with a flair. A human being that has certain propensities for quarrelling, filled with imagination and appetite for the new and with respect for the old – somebody who takes good care of things and people.”

–       Connie Nielsen

Copenhagen - City of Spires

One day in Copenhagen, these are the places to visit:

  •     Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek 
  •     National Museum of Denmark
  •     The Christiansborg Palace
  •     Nyhavn (Pronounced as “Ny-Heaven”) {Say “Ny” as you say “my”}
  •     Amalienborg Palace & Frederik’s Church
  •     Den Lille Havfrue (The Little Mermaid)

People call it the Bike capital of the world, the City of beautiful towers (for its medieval and Renaissance architecture) and Kongens Village.

I call it Love.

Copenhagen, which sits on the coastal islands of Zealand and Amager in Denmark is without any doubt one of the most peaceful countries you will ever visit in your lifetime.

The Place is good.  The People are great. The Architecture
AND THE BEER IS FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!

Yes, the hometown of the Carlsberg Beer Group is a pretty famous tourist-ey city. Around 55 % of Europe drinks Carlsberg. Haven’t you seen that famous ad that goes this way.

“If Carlsberg did meeting rooms, they would probably be best in the world.”
If Carlsberg did meeting rooms, they would probably be best in the world.

Now, I am going to tell you what to do or which places to visit in Copenhagen if you are there for just one day.

A little heads-up. If you are a fitness freak kind of a person looking for some extra adventure along the trip, you might as well opt in to travel around Copenhagen on a bike, after all, it’s the bike capital of the world. Its real fun!

  •   Visit the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

Start your day by visiting the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek which is an art museum having some extravagant personal collections of Carl Jacobsen, the son of the founder of the Carlsberg Breweries. It will be the first stop if you go by main road towards the city center or the Kobenhavn Central Train Station. It comes under the City Hall area which can also be paid a visit. It’s all good architecture so you are not going to get a hard time clicking some Instagram-Worthy pictures. :p

While you will be paddling around the city, you will come across some great wonders of the modern and old architecture. Copenhagen is famous for it. Frankly, I just loved biking around the city. Seeing good and different places makes me happy.

  • Visit the National Museum of Denmark

Then you can pay a quick visit to the National Museum of Denmark, which is Denmark’s largest museum of cultural history comprising the history of Danish foreign cultures. This museum is almost 200 years old.  

  • Visit The Christiansborg Palace

The next stop has got to be on the tiny island of Slotsholmen which is basically inside the city. Yes, an island in the middle of the city. Crazy right? Even though it’s a small one, but, it’s fun.

The Christiansborg Palace, which comprises of the Danish ParliamentThe Supreme Court and the Ministry of State. 

Fun Fact: The Christiansborg Palace is supposed to be the place where it all started 850 years ago. Yes, 850 YEARS. You heard that correct. In 1167, a fortress was erected on the location of it. Since then, this event has come to be viewed as the official “birth” of Copenhagen as we know it – and the idea behind the city’s 850th birthday in 2017.

Art lovers could also pay a visit to Thorvaldsens Museum which is located on this very island.

Tiny ME in front of Thorvaldsens Museum. (you wouldn’t even come to know that you are on an island, its that small and near to the main land.)

The entry fee for The Ruins and for the Royal Kitchen, etc are different so it’s better to buy a combined ticket to enter for 150 DKK (20$ or so). The entry for children is free.

There is also a Danish Jewish Museum on that same island but I think you can skip that. the history is better explained in various other Jewish Museums around the world. I really love the one in Washington D.C.  

 

TIP: If you are history lover and you just wanna walk on the paths where some of the great historians or kings or princesses have walked on, put your GPS Coordinates to Gammeltorv which dates to sometime during the 13th century.

Gammeltorv (literally ‘Old Square’ in English) certainly lives up to its name as it is the oldest square in the city.

  • Visit Nyhavn (Pronounced as “Ny-Heaven”) {Say “Ny” as you say “my”}

I hear some voice. Wait! It’s my stomach calling.

It time for some brunch/Lunch on the most photographed street of Denmark, Nyhavn. You must have seen many photos of Copenhagen or basically Europe with all those colorful houses alongside the river and the boats in front of them. Well, Its Nyhavn. In some cases, it could also be Amsterdam. 😛

The Famous Nyhavn

So Nyhavn, undoubtedly has the best food in town. It has everything,

Varieties 

Cost friendly

Costly 

Cuisines 

Boats 

Colors 

Ambience and what not. 

All these combinations give you the best eating experience in the entire city. Also, probably in the entire country. Even though your pockets are not gonna like it that much but trust me, your wives and children will.

😛

There were so many things I wanted to try there but as they say Stomach is full, but not policy. Therefore, I couldn’t eat more after one-point ☹. So, I wrapped up and continued my exciting day ahead.

But I hope you have a giant appetite and some may also have deep pockets. So, it is highly recommended to eat here. Almost, all the restaurants serve great food.

You could also come here at night for dinner. They have great lightening scenes during dark. You folks would love it.

The most photographed place in Copenhagen

There is a restaurant by the name Pizzeria which serves some great variety of Pizzas. The place is little hard to find on Nyhavn.  If you are on the restaurant-side of the river and al the restaurants are on your left, you walk and take the first left. It’s an underground restaurant made in a basement. They are not costly, and the taste of their Pizza is amazing!!!

  • Visit the Amalienborg Palace & Frederik’s Church
HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU COULD JUST HAVE A LOOK INSIDE PRINCE OF DENMARK’S HOME? AMAZING RIGHT?
Well You cannot. LOL!! 

But you can visit that area where lies Amalienborg, the home of Danish Royal Family. My best experience here was to copy the Royal Guards, how they march and how they walk and how they wouldn’t even laugh at your lamest jokes.

Their funny looking hat and the REAL-GUNS. :D. This area with four different buildings on each side are going to look amazing in your photos. I will share with you people a B&W version of the picture I clicked.

As you can see people are also using Hoverboard to see places. I think that’s a cool way to see places. A must try I feel.

The good thing is that you can atleast visit the museum here and get to know about Danish Royal Family’s history. You can hire a guide there which will prove to be very fruitful for you if you are interested in Danish history. I, who always used to fail in history also loved it :D.

 

Just in front of the Amalienborg Palace, is the Frederik’s Church which is famous for its rococo architecture. You might have heard about it as The Marble Church. It was closed due to something when I was in Copenhagen (sad right?) but if you do get the chance, certainly pay a visit inside. Then, let me also know how it was. I will go there someday <3.

I have this audacity of not leaving a single attraction in the city. You never know what may strike your heart <3.

Frederik’s Church
  • Visit Den Lille Havfrue (The Little Mermaid)

Now The Little Mermaid!

Well, this place and this statue wouldn’t eat too much of your time. You can spend 10 minutes here MAXIMUM. But you would wanna spend a nice amount of time at the park where The Little Mermaid is located. It’s called the Langeline Park.

The Little Mermaid

It has many little little attractions to see like the Gefion Fountain and St Alban’s Church and the Prinsesse Marie(another famous statue). All these attractions start with the Churchill Park.

Gefion Fountain
St Alban’s Church

As soon as you will cross the Fountain, on you right hand side you will see a sea-side restaurant names Toldboden. You must try this if you have time which probably you will. If not, atleast try the cocktails.

 

FACT: They always have super-sexy cars parked around them all day. Certainly not a bad way to attract customers.

Outside of Toldboden.

Apparently, our day has come to an end but the night has just begun  :p.

To all the Wise Gamblers out there, Casino Copenhagen is the place for you to reimburse your trip or double the expenditure. It all depends on you. Obviously I wouldn’t want you folks to lose all their money but a little risk in life is always worth remembering. This Casino is a huge one. I wish you a rich night! :p .

Farvel Danmark!

The Famous Bean

It was in August, 2017 when I planned a random trip to meet an old friend. He drove all the way from Missouri and I flew up from D.C. It was just 2 short days in Chicago (weekdays at that), but that city didn’t let itself lose to us.

In here, I will be sharing an itinerary for two days with you folks wherein I will show you the best way to enjoy Chicago on weekdays while covering maximum number of major destinations of the city.

Welcome to the most American place in America!!

Chicago is second to no city. In fact, it is sometimes referred to as the Second City because too many buildings were burned down in the Chicago Fire of 1871. 

Hence, the name. The city of Jazz has a lot to offer. Lets do it!

Day: 1 

I’ll get straight to the point. It would be best if you had your hotel/Airbnb downtown or nearby. Most of the attractions are downtown. For a trip lasting two days, my first suggestion would be to buy the CHICAGO CITY PASS. This pass will leave you $100 lighter and covers a total of 5 attractions which would otherwise cost you approximately $220 in entry tickets. You end up saving $120. Doesn’t seem like a bad bargain now, does it?

This city pass will open doors to:

  1. Shedd Aquarium
  2. Skydeck Chicago
  3. The Field Museum
  4. Museum of Science and Industry OR 360 CHICAGO
  5. Adler Planetarium OR Art Institute of Chicago

Read more about City Pass HERE.

Five on our list and here we go.

This is a great shot of me flying amongst and being dwarfed by the edifices of Chicago. #ShotOnGoPro

Throw it away. Forget yesterday. We’ll make a great escape here!

–     Steve McQueen in The Great Escape (1963)

1st Stop: Art Institute of Chicago

I chose Art Institute of Chicago over Adler Planetarium because I had already visited the Samuel Oschin Planetarium (Los Angeles) and Albert Einstein Planetarium (Washington D.C.). So, skipping this didn’t feel that bad; NOT BAD AT ALL after I crossed those frightening lions at the front door of the Art Institute of Chicago.

I was all clean shaved back then

FUNFACT: The Art Institute of Chicago is one of the oldest and the largest art institutes in the United States. It is believed to receive around 1.5 million visitors annually. Even if you are not much into the arts, you can easily spend around 1-2 hours marveling at the outstanding works inside. It contains over 300,000 workpieces by famous artists like, M.F. Hussain, Georges-Pierre Seurat (He is the one with the famous painting of a Sunday afternoon including a number of Parisians at a park by the River Seine.) and also Gustave Caillebotte, who painted The Paris Street; Rainy Day. There are many other famous paintings and sculptures by renowned artists that I don’t know about.  

The Paris Street; Rainy Day by Gustave Caillebotte

There are separate areas dedicated to different types of arts like American Art, Modern Art, Indian Art, European Art, etc. There are also some departments containing the 1,544 objects in the Arthur Rubloff Paperweight Collection and the 68 Thorne Miniature Rooms – a collection of miniaturized interiors of a 1:12 scale showcasing American, European and Asian architectural & furniture styles from the Middle Ages to the 1930s (when the rooms were constructed).

One of the Thorne’s Miniature Rooms

This place surely has a lot to offer, especially if you are an art enthusiast. I am sure you wouldn’t hesitate to spend at least half of your day here.

TIP: Photography is allowed inside and it goes without saying that you are not to touch anything. Selfie Sticks are prohibited. 

Done with all the art, we have to keep moving!!!!!! Time won’t stop in the Museum, will it? We have but 2 measly days. HAHA!!

“You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.”

–     Sam Claflin in Me Before You (2016) 

 2nd Stop: The Bean (Cloud Gate)

You won’t need your City Pass because it’s open for all. It’s the architectural wonder of Chicago: The Bean!!!

I think its nice

The Bean is situated very close to the main city. It is inside the Millennium Park where you will also encounter some other small attractions like the “Jay Pritzker Pavilion”, “Millennium Monument”, “Crown Fountain” and “Harris Theatre”. Do visit them all. You don’t want to miss anything do you?

Millennium Park

The Bean is officially known as “Cloud Gate”. (So, if you per chance want to put it into your Google Maps or something, try Cloud Gate.

FACT: Cloud Gate is a public sculpture by Indian-born British Artist Sir Anish Kapoor. So, a person coming from India (like me) obviously wouldn’t miss it (Not that you guys should.). It is truly a masterpiece and worth visiting. If you are a good photographer, you will surely get great Instagram-worthy shots. ;P . You can check mine out below.

Cloud Gate

NOW

IT’S

FOOD

TIME!!

If you are a local, you surely know about Denny’s which is a famous place for breakfast. They serve amazing pancakes and waffles. Milkshakes are good, too. Also, if you are an omelet lover, they also have some great choices for you.

Another place that I would suggest for breakfast- Lou Mitchell’s Restaurant.

THE PANCAKES THERE AREEEEE SOOO YUUMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!

3rd Stop: Skydeck Chicago

If you are quite active on social media platforms, you must have definitely seen some videos where people go to the top floor of a building and stand on a Look-Through-Glass-Surface-Floor and you would say in your mind, “Someday”.

The center one is Skydeck Chicago

Today is the day when you would want to propose to your girlfriend standing on a glass ledge with an amazing view of the Big City. This attraction comes under your Chicago City Pass which means that you don’t need to worry about standing in a queue to wait for an elevator which will take you to the 103rd floor of this iconic structure. You just have to hop on into the next one. 😀

I mean, obviously, you have to follow the rules.

FUN FACT:

This iconic building is the tallest in the Western Hemisphere, standing at 1,450 feet and 110 stories tall, encompassing more than 4.5 million square feet, including its Skydeck and 103rd floor glass viewing platform (The Ledge), which attracts more than 1.7 million (more than the Art Museum) visitors every year. It ranks eighth on the list of tallest buildings in the world.

The Ledge transforms how visitors experience Chicago. At 1,353 feet above the ground, The Ledge’s glass boxes extend out 4.3 feet from the skyscraper’s Skydeck on the 103rd floor, providing never-before-seen views of the city. You can also get your pictures clicked professionally by the Skydeck authority and then purchase them later at the counter on your way out by the gift shop. It is a little expensive though. As far as I remember, it costs up to 40$ for one photo. 

They also give you and your friend time to click pictures with your own devices for a couple of minutes. Make sure you don’t spend too much time on The Ledge as there will be a long queue behind you waiting for their turn.

BE CONSIDERATE.

I am sure you don’t want to get frowned upon and/or cursed.

Below attached is my photo from the Glass Ledge.

P.S.: That ass-face wearing red is my friend. 😛
You can also do THIS on the ledge (like my friend did). I would never even dare to try this 1500 feet above the ground!! NEVERRR!!!

By now, it will almost be evening and most of the attractions that are left will be closed at this time. But hold on a second, you are in Chicago and your night cannot get any better when you have amazing clubs and discos all around.

I went to “Smart Bar” & “Berlin” (Yup, I went bar-hopping).

These two are one of the best clubs in town and I assure you that you will have a great time here. We confirmed with our hosts from Airbnb about them and they are indeed the best.

We are going to leave the rest of the attractions for tomorrow. Till then, PARTY HARD or GO HOME!!!! 😀

TIP: If you are a foreigner, you could try HOOTERS (if you haven’t tried it yet). You must have heard about this place and why it got famous. 😜

Plus, it serves amazing Chicken Wings!!!

I don’t want to travel too much, I just want to travel, because time just gets away from us.

Day: 2

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A HANGOVER CURE?

If this is the question troubling you early in the morning, then my suggestion would be to pack your bag and get ready for the upcoming adventures of our day in Chicago because you have got no other option.

I have a Scottish friend who consumes alcohol like it was water and yet, he shows up to work every day as if nothing had happened. So, just be a little braver, get up and get going.

4th Spot: 360 CHICAGO

This skyscraper is quite similar to Skydeck Chicago but more adventurous. Formerly known as the John Hancock Observatory, it lets you enjoy 360° views from 1000 feet above Lake Michigan and Chicago’s famous Magnificent Mile. The most amazing part of this floor is that they have recently introduced a feature known as TILT.

View from the Skydeck

In short, THE OBSERVATION DECK TILTS DOWNWARDS FROM THE 94TH STOREY (YUP, THAT’S RIGHHTTTTT!!!!), offering a downward panorama. The attraction, which costs $5 to tourists and is thought to be the first of its kind, holds up to eight people, with the platform slowly moving outward to an adventurous angle above the Windy City.

This attraction is also included in your Chicago City Pass but you will have to pay a few dollars extra for the TILT.

View from the deck

We are now left with only 2 of our main 6 attractions which are included in the Chicago City Pass. Ladies and gentlemen, we are now headed to The Field Museum.

This is GOLD.

5th Spot: The Field Museum

Easter Island Head: Hey! Dum-dum!

Larry: Yes?

Easter Island Head: You give me gum-gum!

Larry: I give you gum-gum?

Easter Island Head: You new Dum-dum. You give me gum-gum.

Larry: Gee, okay, you know what? I have no gum-gum. Sorry. And my name isn’t Dum-dum. My name’s Larry.

Easter Island Head: No, your name Dum-dum.

Easter Island Head: Oh, you in trouble, Dum-dum. You better run-run. From Attila the Hun-hun.

Easter Island Head: See you later, Dum-dum!

–     Night at the Museum (2006)

You don’t need to be a film buff to be familiar with these dialogues. There is no way on Earth you haven’t heard this before. Allow me to introduce to you The Field Museum, The Museum of Natural History.

Here, it is going to be the closest you will ever come to living with a Dinosaur. The Field Museum combines the research of its world-renowned scientific staff with its award-winning design expertise to create high-quality travelling exhibitions. It has almost everything related to history, like The Animal Exhibitions, The Grainger Hall of Gems, Inside Ancient Egypt, Evolving Planet, The Ancient America, etc.

As soon as you enter, you will encounter the skeleton of a T-Rex (Tyrannosaurus Rex), just like in the movie.

FACT: This T-Rex is known as the “Sue, The Tyrannosaurus Rex” and is the best-preserved T-Rex fossil yet discovered. It is at least 67 million years old. This T-Rex was 28 years old when it died. This fossil was named after the person who discovered it, Sue Hendrickson.

“Sue, The Tyrannosaurus Rex”

You can easily spend 2-4 hours in there. Don’t miss out on watching some great 3D-4D short movies which are all very knowledgeable and so much fun to watch. I watched one of Sir David Attenborough’s.

P.S.: I LOVE Sir David Attenborough!

Before going to your next stop, you might want to try Kim & Carlo’s Chicago Style Hot Dogs. It is a very popular place to have hot dogs! It is quite near to where you currently are. Just turn on G.P.S. and you will find it in a jiffy. They serve some really nice and succulent hot dogs. I liked them a lot.

OOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRR…..

If you are ready to go a little off the route, try Little Branch Café which is just 10 minutes by foot from the museum.

6th Spot: Shedd Aquarium (Just 5 minutes walk from The Field Museum)

It is an indoor public aquarium which is more than 85 years old. It was at some point of time the largest indoor aquarium in the world.

It contains several exhibits like Waters of the World, Caribbean Reef, Amazon Rising, Wild Reef, Oceanarium, etc. It also contains a 4-D Theatre which is not to be missed. Trust me on this. Films shown here include Coastal Predators, Sea Monsters, SpongeBob SquarePants, Planet Earth, Ice Age, Dora the Explorer, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer (seasonal), and the Polar Express (seasonal).

I am a supporter of Sand Cloud Organization and the mission they serve is to save the fish. Hence, I didn’t go inside; instead, my friend did. I will be sharing with you some pictures that he took.

With this, our 2 AWESOME days in Chicago end. I really loved the city. Also, I wanted to visit Chicago since the day I came to know that Frank Sinatra was born here. It’s just his kind of town.

That is the Big Windy City- Chicago.

P.S.: It is not an advertisement or an attempt to promote Chicago City Pass or Sand Cloud Organization. I just feel that Chicago City Pass is undoubtedly the best way to enjoy all the great attractions of Chicago. Trust me, after taking advantage of it, you will be singing the same song. 😛

I wish you a great time in Chicago.
Thank You!
