After waiting 12 hours at Sydney airport, we finally board a flight at 9pm to LAX!!! We are very excited but tired at the same time. The flight was really good apart from the fact that it was 14 hours long!!! I was seated between mum and dad so I was all set. We arrived at LAX airport at 5pm, their time. We got our bags and headed to find the bus that would take us to our hotel, the Sheraton. Once we got to the Sheraton, we checked in and headed downstairs for a quick dinner. Then we went to bed as we were very tired but we all woke up at 230am from jet lag!!!! An hour later, we got back to sleep in preparation for our 1pm flight to Chicago.
Luckily we set our alarm for 930am, because otherwise we would've slept through it we were so tired. We quickly got ready and headed to the airport at 1030. Upon arrival at LAX airport, we used curb side check- in (as dad called it). We checked our bags and received our boarding passes before we even entered the building! We then went through security and had breakfast as we were all starving!! We waited to board our flight from LAX to Chicago. The plane ride was pretty good. Mum finished her first book which she brought at Sydney airport!!! We arrived in Chicago about 7pm. We are staying at the Inn of Chicago. It is like 0 degrees here and I am praying that it will start snowing!! Once we checked in, we got our thermals on and went out for dinner. We went to the shake shack which was delicious! We then just walked around looking at the shops, and along all of the streets, the trees were covered in Christmas lights!! We walked down to the peninsula hotel where there is an outdoor ice skating rink. We walked in but it was closed so we will have to come back tomorrow. We also walked down Michigan avenue which is the magnificent mile. We are very tired now so we are off to bed.
