I fly out to LA today. Usually I leave the midwest 24 hours ahead of my international flight (that leaves from LAX) – I missed a flight to New Zealand once due to a weather hold up in Chicago – never again – now I leave here the day before and wait over on the West Coast. It is over four hours to Los Angeles from Chicago. And I am always a little relieved when I get closer to LAX.
Do you remember that I was held up for five hours in Midway just the other day because there was lightning? See? Imagine if I had a connection. It is so easy to miss an important flight. I do everything I can to make my international connection on time. Though, of course, nothing is ever sure.
So, off I go to LA, where I will stay in an hotel by the sea so I can decompress and have a good walk along the boardwalk before taking a cab back to the airport and board my next flight tomorrow night. It is amazing what kinds of deals you can get if you book ahead and off-peak. This time I am staying in Manhattan Beach. Nice.
I hope you have a lovely day.
I will be in tomorrow as I will be blogging as often as I can as I travel- I want to show you some more of my beloved New Zealand. Our farm blog now morphs into a travel blog. I LOVE to travel.
OK – I have lots to do before we drive off. Talk soon.
