I documented my California trip!

Where have I been the last two weeks, you ask? California!

It has been a long time coming.. Considering that we booked our holiday over a year ago (this is pretty rare for me, I’m usually a last minute person!). Me and my friend Glen booked our holiday to visit D23 mainly.

What is D23?

D23 is an official Disney Convention which takes place every two years in Anaheim, California. Think San Diego Comic Con, but Disney filled! They have panels on the upcoming films, featuring never-seen footage and giveaways. They usually have a huge bunch of stars there and loads of great opportunities! Not forgetting the show floor, where you can shop at a huge number of stores. This includes The Disney Store, the Dream Store, Mickey’s of Glendale, Funko, Thomas Kinkade, Uniqlo..
I will be writing a blog post that goes much more in depth, all about D23!

Our Holiday/Vacation

We had an incredible time, to say the least! We were gone for 11 days in total, starting off in San Francisco. Then, we really wanted to visit the Walt Disney Family Museum which was incredible and Glen has never visited, so scope out the tourist attractions too! We half saw the Golden Gate Bridge (it was cloudy both days) and took a visit to Alcatraz which is so fascinating. Not to forget, we HAD to take a trip on San Francisco’s Cable Cars! So we were equipped with all of our essential tourist items from cameras, polaroids, suncream slathered on our skin to smiles!

After San Francisco, we were ready to hop onto a Megabus down to Anaheim. Our schedule was to visit D23, Los Angeles and Disneyland! I will write a post on our holiday soon with all the details, but we had such a great time!

Did we vlog our trip?

Yes, we did! We love looking back on our YouTube videos where we can keep so many memories. I usually save everything to a hard drive, but never get around to looking at them again! The cameras all charged, at the ready and boy, did we get funny looks! No shame on our half, we just loved showing you all our trip and it’s something great to look back on.

Here are a few links to the vlogs I have posted so far:
