Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park

Celebrating the launch of our website Don't Disturb The Sheep at Little Sisters on Manhattan Beach was a good start of our trip to Los Angeles this time! Don't Disturb The Sheep had just gone live!!! We were so excited! The next morning we drove to Palm Springs. A two hour drive from Torrance where our hotel is situated. On our way we saw wonderful landscapes. Later on we stopped for a short visit at the outlet mall just half an hour from Palm Springs. Meanwhile, these girls on a mission bought some duktape at the Super Target because we had to repair our small blue box on wheels ;-)! We stayed at the Ace hotel in Palm Springs. The price you pay for a room is eye watering, but the ambiance is great. Overall it's a nice, hip and relaxed place to stay. In our room we had an old fashioned record player, shutters with artwork, Moroccan robes, nice smelling shower gel, lotion, hair shampoo and a patio. This made our stay very pleasant. We went to restaurant Workshop in Palm Springs that night to have dinner. The restaurant is well designed using a lot of concrete and a great menu to choose from. The next day we went to Joshua Tree National Park. You pay a fee in advance and once in the park you can drive wherever you want. What a beautiful scenery! Worth a visit. We didn't hike through the park but drove around, princesses as we are ;-)! We spotted an old Airstreamer in the middle of nowhere and tortured our small box on wheels to that place. It was like being on a movie set!

Los Angeles
It was a super trip to Los Angeles again !!! After arriving we went to Manhattan Beach and enjoyed the sunset. The next morning we drove to Big Bear for skiing. A beautiful route through the mountains to Snow Summit. We went skiing for a couple of hours with a temperature of more than 12 degrees Celsius. We drove back through the mountains to Manhattan Beach and ended up in a very nice restaurant Little Sister. A special LA trip with a lot of contradictions: beach versus snow pistes, sand versus snow and flip flops versus ski boots all in one day. What a great new super cool experience we had this time: skiing in LA!
