The Saharan Motor Hotel, Hollywood, California

Just a quick review of the place we stayed at in Hollywood…

We chose this place because unfortunately the motel 6 we stayed at last time was fully booked by the time we got round to organising ourselves. It was a 10 minute walk to Hollywood Boulevard and the start of the stars in the pavement. Another 5 minutes to Mann’s Chinese theatre. It was relatively cheap and had free parking. There was a small breakfast included with fresh fruit juice, tea, coffee, cereal, toast and waffles; and free wifi which was at a reasonable speed.

hollywoodhotelThe first impression of the room was good, but was let down by the cleanliness in the bathroom. There was a cluster of hairs left on the floor and the doorframe was filthy. Loo and sink spotless, but it was like the cleaner hadn’t been told to clean the doorframe so she didn’t. The grout had come out of the floor tiles and they were all cracked and wobbly. Also my feet were black from walking on the carpet – it needs a good wash.

Otherwise, a good basic motel in a quiet road close to central Hollywood with a very friendly person at reception. Also a handy supermarket just across the road.

Visiting Godrevy Beach, Cornwall – the story and the photographs
September 30, 2019
Continuing the braless theme of my recent fashion post; I didn’t even have time to put one on on the Saturday morning we visited Godrevy beach. As we approached the National Trust hut at the carpark entrance, I covered my chest with one arm, and hung the other out the window to flash my membership card at the volunteer. The bed at the back of the camper van was still out and it must have been obvious I hadn’t been awake long…

A visit to Basildon Park near Reading. Places to visit near the M4
May 12, 2018
Last week we actually had a taster of a social life and drove all the way to London for a friend’s birthday barbecue. I was a lovely weekend, and it was so nice to go to a party and chat to old friends and meet new people. If you know me, then you’ll know this is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I think I managed not to panic and say anything stupid! Anyway, instead of the usual A303 route back to Somerset, we decided to take a slower route beginning with the M4 and then detouring through the English countryside. We stopped for a while at the National Trust property near Reading; Basildon Park…..
Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury
Glastonbury Festival 2017 – Review & photos
July 15, 2017
Yes, I know it’s a bit late in the day, but I think I’ve written a review of every Glastonbury Festival since this blog began, so I can’t break with tradition can I? This was the first year I vlogged the whole event, so I’ve been intensely editing all the hours of footage I came home with, so please click the link if you’d like to watch the video. Anyway, Glastonbury 2017 will definitely go down as one of my favourites and I have to be honest, that’s mainly due to the perfect weather! I don’t go for the bands – if you’ve been to Glastonbury Festival, you’ll know it’s about so much more than the music, and it’s almost impossible to explain why……
