We had a nice early morning with the alarm waking us up at 5.15am. As you can imagine we didn't have a full night sleep, a mix of excitement, nerves and last minute packing thoughts twirled in our heads
Once we said our goodbyes to our families, with a few tears shed, (who can be at the airport saying goodbye or watching others say goodbye without shedding a tear or two?) we lined up and headed through customs and managed to keep all of our belongings (no face creams discarded this time, tick, we packed well).
From that moment on, time flew and in the time it took to walk to the gate we were being called to board. At least no more waiting!
I am writing this from on the flight that seems to be taking forever! What a cruel joke that to explore the world you have to travel for 14 hours and arrive when you should be going to sleep!!
We have snatched an odd hour of sleep here and there, but not enough to sustain us when we arrive in LA at 6am. We then have customs, a 3 hour wait and a flight to San Francisco where we will check our bags into the apartment (which won't be ready til 4pm!). Our plan is to get a ferry to Sausalito for a wander, lunch and an icecream, then a shuttle to Muir Woods, then back for dinner and an early night.
We made it!
What a beautiful start to our day flying into San Francisco. We flew in at 11am, with still only a few hours sleep, but the city put on a beautiful show for us and California is hot hot hot!!!
Will keep you posted!!
