Well Jack and I successfully managed top make it to America although i would not recommend anyone to fly with Pacific Airways as they are crap! We hired a Dodge beast of a car (the smallest they had) and we drove up to Las Vegas the day after we arrived. It was one straight road pretty much for nearly 200 miles and it was so hot. We had 2 nights at the Sahara Casino/Hotel which was really good and cheap which is what we like. We had a really good time there and even went to watch a variety show in Planet Hollywood. The stip was amazing and the casinos were out of this world. It was just like Orlando but for adults.
We moved on friday to a cheaper motel on the strip for the last night as the Sahara doubled in price as it was a weekend. We were going to go the Grand Canyon but it was a long drive on a dirt road and we decided to go shopping instead. Jack was happy as he managed to find some new trainers although he has massive blisters now as they have rubbed the backs of his ankles.
We drove back to LA and stayed just off Hollywood Blvd and the hostel was really good. We even got to watch a free comedy show last night. We walked up and down to look at the stars although we didnt get to see anyone famous until today.
LA was pretty hectic and driving around there was a nightmare. I think i can cope with anything now and im so proud of myself for doing it. (Ali i can understand why you hated it too much traffic and they use indicators as a hobby as and when they feel like it). I did have a few stress moments but thanks to Jack and Jean Paul (our GPS system that Jack named) we managed to even make it into Beverly Hills and Venice beach and spent yesterday afternoon on the beach. Everyone must have thought we were mad as we were in shorts and Bikini and everone else was in jeans, but it was so hot.
We left LA today at the crack of dawn and flew to New York but at the airport we bumped into Sandra Bullock and i was so happy that i finally saw a famous person, thanks to Jacks hawk eyes.
We arrived in New York this afternoon and we are really tired so going to get food and have an early night.
Probably write again before we come home. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
All our love Liz and Jack xxxx
