San Diego Skyline
We left San Diego with some regret in our hearts. When visiting here, we are always tempted to sell everything and move. Then we remember there are other places like Italy, Japan, Russia, Alaska.....just calling our names. Today we have a long day’s journey into day after tomorrow. I think! We left San Diego at 11:30 am on Wed Jan 31 and will arrive in Auckland, NZ on Friday Feb 2. Those of you who have crossed the International Dateline understand. It’s difficult for me to keep this straight. Although it is Wednesday here, it is already Thursday in Auckland where our reservation requires advanced notice for airport pick up on Friday. Added to the travel ordeal is our 11 hour layover in LAX. Rather than sitting in congested wait areas and listening to intercom announcements for 11 hours, we bit the bullet and bought a day pass for the AA Admiral Lounge. I highly recommend spending extended airport time with the 1%. Waiters circle constantly asking if they could serve you. All food and drink is gratis. There are showers, a beautiful bar area. And, you could hear a pin drop. We’ll check back in here tomorrow from the souther hemisphere. Or is that day after tomorrow?
