Photo Update - Beverly Hills Gardens And Rodeo Drive

There is so much to explore in Los Angeles - I find Santa Monica massive, let alone the whole of L.A too! Whilst being in America my confidence to plan trips out and about has grown a lot and I find I am now enjoying going out on day trips so much more than say, a year ago or less.

Don't get me wrong, I do have days where I feel less confident - but thats okay and we all have ups and downs. In that case I stick to reading my book on the beach; do some Yoga and chill, which are my most favourite things to do out here. But when I feel up to it, I like to plan myself a day trip; as theres so much to explore here, it only takes a little research and I always find something I fancy.

So, today, I made way to Beverly Hills, I hopped on the bus which only took about half an hour. I decided I wanted to stick to 2 main things - going for a wander along the gardens, and a little look around Rodeo Drive area. 

I had a wonderful time, the gardens were gorgeous, there were also some interesting sculptures, which as a lover of Art I was amazed by. I also passed a beautiful Catholic Church and the most incredible Civic Centre I've ever seen. 

Then, when heading back towards Rodeo Drive, I went past another sublime building - I wasn't quite sure what the building was for...but a gate was open so I just popped in to have a quick look. Inside was a divine courtyard, which had a greek temple like feel; with fountains, sculptures and greenery. Once I left, I worked out that it was in fact a building for the 'Paradigm Talent Agency', which has clients in motion pictures, television, book publishing, music etc - so in fact, me being my nosey self, lead to me finding out something quite interesting!

I then got to Rodeo Drive and had a stroll up and down the path, having a peek in the windows at all the really expensive stuff! The one thing I came across that I found quite funny was a lady coming out of one of the expensive stores walking the biggest dog I've ever seen...I wonder who was enjoying the shopping more, the dog or the lady? Have a look at the photos, and see what you think...dog or lady? 

I hope you like having a look into my day in Beverly Hills!
