So on the 9th of March 2017 I boarded an Air New Zealand flight headed to LA. Getting of the plane in NZ it suddenly struck me that I didn’t know the pin code for my global credit card and couldn’t even purchase a cold drink. Thank goodness for airport wifi which allowed me to login and work this out. No sooner done than it was time to board the plane for the next leg to LA.
Note to self, try and do whatever it takes to get an aisle set. It is a long flight and there is a limit to how long you can cross your legs whilst trying to wake the person beside you who is in a deep sleep, half in your seat.
US Customs was a scary thought, but the reality was that they are very efficient, and you are through in no time.
Next a very happy reunion with my son and then board a bus to downtown LA. After dropping of my bags, a stroll around town was in order.
Here are some of the images from the first couple of days.
