London was now almost 12 hours flying time from where I had just landed. So here I was landing in the lovely sunshine in my least favourite airport in the USA. I had arrived after my long but comfortable flight with Air New Zealand in Los Angeles.
I just had to find a Super Shuttle to get me to the Venice Beach Cotel. Where I had stayed a few times before and was planning to stay at again.
It didn’t take long to grab one. I just hoped that I wouldn’t have to spend too much time on this bus as I was almost ready for a very long sleep. Luckily I was the 2nd person to be dropped off so didn’t have to endure a guided tour of downtown LA. I had been downtown and wasn’t a bog fan. I much preferred to stay near Santa Monica and Venice where I could see some quirky stuff on my doorstep.
I checked in and put my things in my room. I was now a bit hungry and very tired so I had something to eat in a cafe around the corner. I went back to the Cotel and got into bed to enjoy a well deserved rest. I had big plans for tomorrow.
