Los Angeles, California – Travel photos from the Getty Center

The Getty Center in Los Angeles is an amazing place. We were finally able to visit this place and be transported for a few hours in the heart of Europe. This was not because of the architecture of the buildings because they are very American and very modern. But the art on display at the Getty Center was amazing. We got to see Manet, Money, Renoir and even a very rare sketch by Da Vinci. Read more to see some pictures from the Getty Center.

San Juan Capistrano Mission takes you back in time

I love Southern California and in particular I love all the small beach towns on the way to San Diego from Los Angeles. They have clean beaches and the water is much warmer than Los Angeles and Ventura beaches. San Juan Capistrano is one of these small beach towns along the Southern California coast. It is small but clean and quiet. Wonderful weather and proximity to the Pacific Ocean make San Juan Capistrano a truly delightful beach town. In addition to the clean beaches, San Juan Capistrano boasts one of the twenty seven old California Missions.
