Where I stayed
holiday inn express
! to top it off, the crap airport in New York doesn't even have free wi fi, how crap is that? in fact the whole airport was pretty average as far as airports go, and we have seen a few. so we finally get on the plane and there are these group of scottish girls sitting in front of us squealing and carrying on because the guy sitting next to them was working on greys anatomy as a camera man, so anyway after eavesdropping on their conversation for a while I watched a movie for the rest of the flight, it was a lazy five hours. so we finally get back to La and we were trying to figure out how to get to union station and also to get the amtrak to san diego as we had hotel reservations and we were worried that the train would not run that late, but after being on hold and ringing them we found out the last train left at 10 pm, so we had time, at least something went right. so we got to the station and got on the train to san diego and then four teenagers sit behind us and proceed to yell for the next 2 hours, i could even hear them through my ear plugs. grrrr! anyway, we finally got to the hotel and fell into bed at 4am on the time zone we are on. today we are going to sea world in san diego and then tomorrow look around the town and then for our last day we are going to disneyland, we decided that we simply could not leave america without going to disneyland. It is so hard to believe that we only have 3 days left, it has gone so quickly.
well......when i wrote that last blog i was heading out the door to get to the airport for our flight to la and then our trip to san diego. So we get on the airport bus and we are the first ones to get on the bus and he has to pick up 6 more people! the first two are aussie and the yobbo bloke proceeds to comment about the huge night he has had and then that is evidenced by us having to pull over and him having to throw up. idiot. anyway, needless to say, we were late to the airport, the flight was closed but we also found out that the flight time had been changed to half an hour earlier, so even though we would have been there an hour before the flight because of the delay, we missed it. why do they make the flights earlier and not later? aren't they just increasing the chances of people missing the flight? grr, The guy who we tried to get to help us from delta airlines could not have cared less so i got very annoyed and decided that Neil should go and sort it out or I would get cranky as we were not notified by email of the flight change. anyway, he comes back from the counter and says he has got us on a flight at 5 pm, it wwould was 10.30 am. Now, my pet hate is waiting around airports so this is hell for me
