About Orange County
Our trip started in Orange County, as we landed at John Wayne/Santa Ana Airport. The Duke was waiting for us. And so was Michael Hurst, aka “Don”. We had lunch and then “Don” took us for a little tour of Balboa, including the car ferry. The car ferry takes a whopping 3 cars across a canal small enough to easily swim. It is so fun and cute, though! The whole area is just gorgeous. “Don” Hurst thinks Randy looks much better than he did in January…yes, that is true. He is much stronger, and his attitude has really turned around. We have been thoroughly enjoying our trip.

Grand Canal is in fact the strait of length 3.8 kilometers. It has the shape of an inverted "S" and passing through the center of the city is divided into two parts, each of 3 districts (siestery): Cannaregio, San Marco and Castello and Santa Croce, San Polo and Dorsoduro. Channel width varies from 30 to 60 m depth reaching up to 6.0 m edges combine four bridges.
If someone is in California one place I advice them to go visit is the Stanford University. At least you can see the prestigious university if not able to make it to study there. The feeling of being there is so different. The University was built in the 19th century and the architecture there speaks volumes.
8. Entertainment: As if all the above was not enough, KK has four cinemas to spend a good time unwinding. Movie buffs could go to Golden Screen Cinemas or GSC, Megalong Complex or Growball Cineplex and enjoy movies they like. There are two GSCs, one at Suria Sabah Shopping Mall and the other at 1 Borneo Hyper Mall, both of which have eight halls each. Borneo Hyper Mall stations a bowling alley and pool tables as well – a complete entertainment package, watch a movie and go bowling!
The Grand Canal
The next day, we decided to explore Copenhagen through its waters. It's harbors and idyllic canals provide a magnificent view of the city. I took the Grand Canal Tour. You get lost in the unforgettable views of the Opera House, Amalienborg Palace, Black Diamond Library, the Little Mermaid, bridges, warehouses turned apartments, houses in metro sexual colors; ships in the harbor, and so on. And then comes the warning. “Look out, ladies and gentlemen,” a voice implores over the speakers, “mind your heads!” We look up to see a bridge so low and narrow that the sides and the roof of the boat are but inches away from it. We promptly bend our heads.
Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory tour
After the fisherman's wharf I asked someone which place can I visit next which was not away because it was almost 6 and I had just hours left to say goodbye to San Francisco and head back to San Jose. That's when someone said that I must visit the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory. I was really excited and chose to walk. Enroute I stopped for 15 mins to see one of the best sunsets of my life.Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory has a very interesting history attached to it but I will advice you to visit the place and know more.The best part of it was amazing Ice Creams sundaes and fondues. Of course I bought a lot of chocolates as well for my friends and family.
Old Goa. That’s the one place featured in every magazine. The Portuguese pulled off some of the hook architecture for their time and the majestic structures manage to leave you awestruck every time you stop by. The Basilica of Bom Jesu and the neighboring Sé Cathedral are the usual crowd pullers, but a walk down the lanes of Old Goa is the best way to explore the legacy of the state.
The cycling trip starts with a small brief about the place, tips & safety, signing an indemnity bond and allocation of cycles. We make way to the Big Banyan tree, which spreads across 3 acres, close to the starting point. After sending some time here, we make a stop at Manchinbele Dam and cycle past villages to Ramanagram. The city is a famous silkworm cultivation center and feeds the local looms around Karnataka.
