As some of you may know, or probably not know, I work in a library here in Sydney. You find all sorts of quirky things in books, and when I was returning a California travel guide, a bit of paper fell out of it. The would-be jetteuse had written down a number of places that they were considering going:
Santa Monica Blvd
Anything Disneyland related is instantly going to catch my eyes, but what intrigued me the most was the question mark next to Disneyland. Also, Venice Beach was at the TOP of the list.
Now, I don't want to offend anybody from Venice Beach, but having spent an hour or so there last year - and yes, I did buy a bootleg Johnny Cash t-shirt - it certainly wouldn't be on the top of my list. Besides, if you were in California on holiday and had the option between Disneyland and Venice Beach, which would you honestly choose? (I'm preaching to the converted here, I know...).
Maybe they were just Pretty Woman fans judging from the rest of their list.
Anyways, not sure why I actually posted that now. I guess I was bored. Stay tuned for more Tales from a Library...
Carry on with your business.
