We touched down at midnight after a flight we will not forget in a hurry. But still the adventures kept happening on 'V'. Due to the time it seemed all the bridges were closed so we had to park on the runway and be driven to the terminal by bus. Passengers were let off the plane when there was space available on the bus and as we were at the back of the plane....
I have never been so glad to get off a plane before and Barb stopped me kissing the tarmac!

We were the last flight to arrive that  night and after we cleared customs it was nearly 2am in the morning. Our flight to Miami was leaving at 6am so there was not much point in getting a hotel for the night. We wondered over to the domestic terminal but it was deserted and did not feel safe so we walked back to the international terminal where Maccas was still open. We had a burger (our first 'decent' meal in 18 hours) and then found a place where we could sit. We were exhausted. With time the floor started looking more and more inviting and eventually we lay down next to each other on the floor next to  Maccas. So this is how we came about spending our first honeymoon night on the floor at LAX.(we were meant to be sleeping in a kingsize bed at the Sofitel in Miami but this ended up being so much better and something we will always remember.  And strangely it was very romantic...

At 5am we headed off back to Maccas for a large cup of bad coffee and then walked back to the American Airlines terminal which was now packed and resulted in us having to run for the plane with a Starbucks coffee in hand! Miami here we come....
