The City of Los Angeles

It’s me! Matt Stone. It was our last full day in Los Angeles and we decided to see some local sights. We travelled to Griffith Park to hike up the hill to the world famous Griffith Observatory made famous by Hollywood movies and containing an amazing science museum and of course the observatory. We then went and met our friend James for lunch and ended up at Santa Monica beach and the Pier where my brother Morgan finally got to have a go on his skateboard.

On our trip to Los Angeles where we spent most of our time at Disneyland, Anaheim (video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jY1DTQZ25vA), we also did a day trip into the California desert along Route 66 as far as we could drive in half a day (video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=girtVmd_dow).

CitizenM Hotel Room Review on our London to Paris Eurostar Trip

It’s me! Matt Stone. We visited Paris for the weekend and stayed in our favourite hotel chain CitizenM. If you’ve watched the previous vlogs from our trip to New York City you’ll know how much we enjoyed our stay at the CitizenM.

We started our weekend at the CitizenM in Shoreditch London which because we booked direct through the hotel’s website we got 2 free drinks vouchers which we used to get the slightly pricey cocktails! The next morning we headed out on the Eurostar to Paris Gare du Nord and then caught the RER train to Charles de Gaulle Airport which is where one of the CitizenM hotels is.

The room scenes in this video were filmed at both hotels, I combined them as they are pretty much identical in almost all their hotels.

Travel Vlog: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York and drive to Vermont

Join me as I explore more of New York, watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and drive upstate to Vermont.

This vlog covers our last two days in New York. We were so busy and had a very tight schedule which got in the way of doing more filming so this video is a little bit different to my normal ones.

We explore the area around Fifth Avenue and Central Park including sights such as the Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building, and the following day enjoyed watching the parade before our long drive up to Vermont to spend Thanksgiving with the Stone Family who own Vermont’s largest turkey farm.

This trip was one to remember and we had such a great time that we plan on going back as soon as possible. Expect a lot more video’s on the next one!

Travel Vlog: First Day in New York visiting One World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial

It’s me! Matt Stone. Join me as I explore the sights of downtown New York City.

It’s our first full day in New York City and we’re off to ascend the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, One World Trade Center. It had always been a dream of mine since I was young to visit the World Trade Center towers so being able to visit the new tower allowed me to make one of my dreams come true. We also visited the 9/11 Memorial Museum which was a very moving experience, in fact the majority of this vlog is the raw un-edited (mostly) footage I took whilst looking around the museum. If you ever visit New York City I’d highly recommend visiting the memorial, it’s a different kind of tourism but we spent about 3 hours there and learnt a lot of new things about that tragic day in 2001.
