Thank you Helen for chauffeuring me to the airport! I had a great flight and even managed to get some sleep. Flight time was only 12 1/2 hours. Surprisingly good seat and leg room. We were lucky to be one of the early arrivals into Lax so managed to clear the passport control reasonably quickly. The fingerprint scan was a new experience! Whoops forgot to transfer that bottle of vodka I bought duty free into my luggage before I checked it into my delta flight. Now some LA security officers are enjoying my citrus Advokat. We live and learn.
The delta flight to Orlando was packed and there was a lot of turbulence. Crap coffee! Sat next to a lovely couple from Orlando who were very friendly and happy to give me lots of advice! Caught the Mears shuttle to the hotel and checked in at about 8pm. Hayley had a midnight finish so didn't get to catch up for my birthday dinner after all. I ended up having a terrible "Chick fil a" burger across the road from the hotel at 10pm. Note to oneself, don't eat there again! I couldn't believe the number of people lining up at 10pm at night for takeaway, but presuming they have all been visiting the theme parks all day. Walgreens chemist even has a drive through section!
The bed in my room looks very comfortable and the towels are oh so fluffy! My birthday is over and I am off to bed.

Hi J9! Surprisingly no jet lag! I did manage to doze quite well on the Brisbane to la leg and took some melatonin tablets before I went to bed. Hayley is very upset at leaving all her friends and is tired and emotional! Cheers!
