Venice Beach, CAMy brother, Adventure Jason, came to Los Angeles to visit me during Memorial Day weekend. Jason flew to Las Vegas a few days earlier to film an episode of History Channel’s Pawn Stars. Unlike my attempt at getting on Pawn Stars a couple years ago, my brother actually made it on the show (to be aired in a few months). He extended his trip by a couple days to spend time with me in L.A.

It was Jason’s first visit to 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. Never in a million years did I think we were going to be able to pull out all these stops! Normally traffic is horrendous and visiting multiple destinations needs to be strategically planned against the flow of cars, but traffic was at a rare minimum because of the holiday weekend. Everyone LEFT Los Angeles except us I guess!

Here’s a photo recap of our weekend together.

Next stop was the LAX airport where brother took the red-eye flight back to North Carolina. And that concludes our walking/driving 2-day tour of Los Angeles. Love you, Brother!

Did we miss anything? What do you recommend we do for his next visit? I’ll start planning it now to give him some incentive to come back. Leave your suggestions in the comments section below.

Love,

Adventure PAUL
