Sep 26, 2019 - Hello LA!

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD Even though you can book Aeroplan flight reward tickets up to a year in advance, we had a tough time finding business class tickets to Croatia, flying out of Vancouver or Seattle and at last I had the idea to try Los Angeles. Bingo! Not only did we find a routing that was ‘all business’; but the leg from Los Angeles to Zurich was on Swiss Air, a terrific airline. It did include a five-hour stopover in Zurich before two quick flights on to Zagreb (the capital of Croatia) and Dubrovnik, but we didn’t mind because...

Sep 5, 2019 - Brisbane to Los Angeles

5 September 2019 Departure day! Early start, final packing and ready to go by 7am. Looked like we'd be pushing to be ready on time, but we made it!! Anne, Ian & David arrived to pick us up, good trip to airport, lots of questions re visit to USA and security before we could check in. Security sticker put in back of passports with instructions not to loose it, or we would be deported as terrorists! Thankfully we have all arrived in Los Angeles without that happening. Very comfy and smooth flight on Qantas Dreamliner, arriving 20 minutes...

Sep 4, 2019 - Planes big and small and Los Angeles

This has been a very long day with a lot of ups and downs, both literal and figurative. We started out from Hot Springs this morning before dawn and had our first "commuter" flight. It turned out to be a real pleasure: the people were all helpful; the plane was comfortable for the eight passengers it carried; there was no hassle; the flight was smooth; a driver took us from the arrival gate right to Delta to get our flight to LA. MUCH easier than driving to Dallas and battling the city traffic! The flight to LA was standard: huge plane,...

Aug 5, 2019 - Two days in one

Today was another travel day that was two days in one, a day in South Korea before catching the flight and the same day spent in LA. We had the third seating for the breakfast buffet that didn't start until 8:50 allowing us to sleep in a little bit. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and then returned to the room to rest and finish packing. Our pick-up time was 10:30, so we went down to the lobby at 10:15 to checkout and pay the bill, and our driver was already there. We had an hour drive to the airport so we both read on the way. At the...

Jul 8, 2019 - Presidential Library & La Brea Tar Pits

Today we went to the free hot/cold buffet breakfast. No waffles, they had the pancake machine instead. Afterwards we relaxed in the room until it was time to leave, about 9:30. We drove over to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library for the 10:00 opening. The library had a special exhibit entitled "The World of da Vinci". We decided to tour the library and see the exhibit last. The library was a chronological journey through Reagan's life. Beginning with the values he learned from his childhood in Dixon, Illinois, through his college years...

Jul 7, 2019 - Travel day to LA

Today is a travel day to California. John picked us up at 8:00 am and transported us to Newark Liberty International Airport. We arrived about 8:40. Usually, we walk right up to an open kiosk, or have to wait behind someone to finish. Today, probably because of the end of the 4th of July holiday weekend, there were long queues for the kiosks! Unfortunately, ours did not work properly. It said it was printing our luggage tags, but it lied, ladies and gentlemen. It printed the boarding passes, no problem. We found an United rep and they...

Apr 21, 2019 - And The Journey Begins

We have waited for this day for months. I feel bad that we are leaving on Easter Sunday, but we didn’t even think about it. Easter is fairly late this year. Our first leg is an overnight flight from LAX to Munich. We both hope to get some sleep. After a brief layover in Munich, we will on our way to Amsterdam for a couple of days before our cruise starts on Wednesday.

Cruising to 170

Apr 10, 2019 - Hollywood/LA

Bought a Groupon discount ticket for us to take a tour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Well you get what you pay for....Our driver must have worked previously as a getaway driver for the mob. He never once used the brakes or stayed in his lane. But he did take us all over creation, pointing out houses of some to the famous and a couple places where actors died. We saw the Playboy Mansion, Aaron Spellings big ole house that covered a full city block and some other people’s homes. I was holding onto Barney’s arm so hard I was worried about...

Apr 8, 2019 - Los Angeles

Bonita Ranch Campground which was just out of San Bernardino, was our next stop. We drove over to check out Los Angeles. We did the full Hollywood drive and sight see. We toured Rodeo Drive, Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Strip, the Hollywood sign, and the Griffith Observatory ( it was closed). Trying to go back to the camper via google maps, we ended up on Coldwater Canyon Road and Mulholland Drive. The streets kept getting smaller and smaller. They were so narrow you had to pull off road for a car coming the other direction. Saw tons of...

Feb 23, 2019 - Back To The UK

Day 46 - Saturday 23rd February Noisy night on the car park even though the Walmart store closed at midnight, so we were up by 6.30am. The good thing though is that there is a small McDonalds restaurant inside this Walmart’s so that took care of breakfast for us & the stores’s toilets came in handy again. Then a final repack of our cases before setting off. Before returning the RV we sidetracked to a nearby “Habitat For Humanity” charity store where we gave them the two folding chairs & the little electric fire that we bought at the...

Southwest USA - 2019

Feb 22, 2019 - Back To LA

Day 45 - Friday 22nd February The beginning of the end of our trip starts today. Last chance to empty out the toilet & the waste water tanks & clean out the RV. Our sites at the camps have all been full service pitches with electricity, water & waste points so it was just a case of connecting up our floppy corrugated waste pipe to the nearby waste pipe. We are intending to stay at a casino or a Walmart’s when we get back to Los Angeles. I originally booked to stay here tonight but decided that it would be safer to make our way back to LA...

Southwest USA - 2019

Feb 8, 2019 - Met Julie, Bye to Ron, and on To Lindy's

2-8 We met Julie S., our friend through her sister (who went on Bon's last AYH trip). Julie says they are similar in that both are R.B.s...Julie Reads Books and her sister Rides Bikes, ha! We walked from Ron's to downtown Claremont and the Village Grill. Had a great chat/reconnection! Julie does a lot of travel connected with her Unitarian church connection, so she is very easy to share and tell since she has very similar experiences(e.g. travel). Always good to see her, never enough time as always. ---- Back at Ron's a short tea talk,...
