Well here I am … after landing in Sydney we had to get our boarding passes for the international flight, when we finally found where to do this we were directed to the front of the line as we had no baggage to check..thank god, then this lady with a walkie talkie comes along and says don’t book them in… and we said oh no…. so we stood there for 10 min, all ok we thought as we had 2 hours to boared the plane, then walkie talkie lady walks along and says to the couple next to us book them in and to us ….dont book them in … then talks in her walkie talkie..walks off.. walks back….. then says..book them in meaning us and thats it ….flights full… there were at least 50 people behind us that didnt get in and would have waited til the next day. That would have stuffed us up for getting the hire car and we would have lost a day here, so then she says you need to hurry it is now bording, so off we run, didnt not see a thing of the airport lol
I thought the flight was pretty good, and we had the most magical landing ever it was like a helicopter landing. So i was impressed .. I walked around a bit and I saw the best sunset I have ever seen. I didn’t sleep much but watched a few movies and filled out customs declarations lol wot fun.
Arriving in LA i was exprecting a lot of stress,but apart form long lines no one looked at anything and we walked out and got our cases and that was it.. it was cooler than I thought and smoggy. We went over to catch a shuttle complimentry bus to where we had to get our hire car. When we got there we had to wait in line for 2 hours which was a pain as we were so tired and hadn’t slept for over 24 hours. I was rocking back and forth in the line lol
So when we finally got all the paper work we were directed to this huge shed and this guy who I really think could not understand us said pick any car along the wall so we saw the focus all black but then we saw this sky blue pt cruiser so we took that. It is so cute 🙂
I turned the gps on that I bought with me and it connected to the satellite .. pressed our hotel in favourites that I had pre set ..and off we went.. weird on the wrong side of the road..and apart from me screaming that we were on the wrong side of the road lol we were not… we got to the motels and they let us check in 30 min early lol
After a shower and a rest we went out and had Persian ( not the cat) for dinner, it was lovely. then came back and went to sleep, we had been up longer than 24 hours by then …
The weather here is colder than home and the wind down the beach yesterday on our walk to get food was cold,,,,, not nearly as hot as home.
I am not sure we will be up to much today .but after 8 hours sleep I need food 🙂 More later… Car in L.A.
