Urban Hiking Across Los Angeles

Paul and Narda - Ocean Drive, Santa Monica (The Finish Line)

I invented a sport called Urban Hiking. It’s exactly what it sounds like.

I love hiking–and walking in general. I walk about 4-5 miles a day on average. It’s great for contemplating thoughts, catching up on phone calls, and also helps me stay trim.

Here’s the story of Team Awesome’s 20 mile urban hike from Glendale to Santa Monica.

The second day was when we became superstar hosts. From day 1 to day 2, after a good night’s sleep, I had transformed into a better looking, Jewish, long-haired Ryan Seacrest. It was nice to think so at least, because this was the day we were to appear on camera.

2 Day Weekend Tour of Los Angeles with My Brother

My Apartment - Glendale, CA

It was Jason’s first time in Los Angeles. Since our time together was limited, I took him on a fast-paced action packed weekend tour. Our mom was kvelling over her two sons getting to spend the weekend together, so to include her in the trip, we posted photo updates on Facebook of almost every place we visited.

Destinations included Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Beverly Hills, WeHo, Hollywood, Los Feliz, Griffith Park, Pasadena, Little Tokyo, Glendale, and Woodland Hills.

How Do You Get Away With Looking Like That?

Beverly Hills Rooftop Pool

My first job was to pass out appetizers–pork/sausage stuffed mushrooms and fried mozzarella balls. I was starving come 7pm because I arrived way too early to the event and ate way too early of a lunch that day. I immediately figured out that I could eat one appetizer off each tray before leaving the kitchen and space the rest of them out so no-one would notice. I started working very quickly, hurrying in and out of the kitchen and dispersing my appetizers so I could run back for more.
