California Travel Diary: First 2 Days in Los Angeles

We arrived in Los Angeles 2 days before Coachella to get over jet lag (which we didn’t even up having, bonus) and prep ourselves for the trip down to the Palm Desert.

We had booked 2 nights at the Mondrian West Hollywood and holy moly this hotel was insane. Best decision ever staying there — after a long 16 hour flight, walking into this room was like a DREAM (yes that big mirrored contraption is indeed a tv!). The next couple of days we hung around the general West Hollywood vicinity (our hotel was right on the Sunset Strip) taking in LA life and did some pre-coachella shopping at The Grove, where I bought the most comfy leather flats from Vince that I lived in for the rest of the trip.

On the Friday morning we got up bright and early, said our goodbyes to the amazing Mondrian and made our way to LAX for our 8am shuttle bus to Coachella!
