Loving New York and LA

, Prev Next I've just come back from a holiday in New York and LA and I have to say that they are both amazing places. Even with all the travelling I do for the show, I have never actually visited those two cities so I was super-excited about finally getting a chance to see the Big Apple and the City of Angels.

In New York, being the adventurer I am, I even managed to con this random guy in Brooklyn into letting me into his apartment so that I could take some shots from his apartment of the city skyline. It took more than an hour of convincing but in the end, I think the accent and the "I'm Australian! I'm nice and friendly, let me into your house for a photo" angle, worked. He let me take the most amazing photos from right inside his apartment!

LA was pretty awesome as well, I went to a few nightclubs and ended up seeing Leonardo DiCaprio. I guess when they say LA is packed-full of celebs it's pretty accurate, as I ran into him on the street the day after as well! So if any of you viewers want to see some stars, LA is the place to be.

Things have calmed down a bit since I've been back home, but I've still been out and about. I went to my first Spring Racing Carnival in Melbourne, which was fun, but I didn't have any luck with my bets, unfortunately. I also went to the Quantum of Solace premiere last week and let me tell you, that Aston Martin featured in the opening sequence was mind-blowing! Sure wouldn't mind owning one of those one day!

Last year the team did a segment in an OP shop near Hollywood that sold costumes form some of the shows and films. Does any one know the address ? My family will be in LA next 2 weeks and would love to go there.
It seems like so long ago that we used to watch you on channel v and now what a fantastic position you have landed yourself on the best travel show there is. Im sure you are having an awesome time travelling the globe and look forward to seeing more of your work.
Marry me Jason?
Jason.. if you ever want someone to travel with you.. give me a call.. or email =) I think you've got to have the best job in the entire world.. I'd love to be paid to travel the world. xo Bee
I have to say for a boy from little Penrith, Jason has done really well for himself, scoring a job on getaway and winning cleo bachelor of the year! go the west!!!
I was lucky enough to be in the same row as Jason on a domestic flight to Sydney recently. I just wanted to say what a great ambassador he is for the show, very personable especially considering his popularity this year from Cleo's Bachelor of the Year.
