June 30 – From STOCKHOLM to LA
Today we started the vacation of our lives “Route 66, the Andersson style”. Left Stockholm at 14.00, boarded the Dreamliner and we were off.
The airplane smelled new and took us straight to Los Angeles. Really great not having to change planes and stuff.
The trip took 10,5 hours since we had the wind in our back. Otherwise it can take up to 12 hours, I think.
It was kind of a strange flight, couldn’t keep my eyes open for more than an hour at the time. But the naps were really short, just 15-30 minutes, so not much sleep on this trip. Saw 2,5 movies, The bucket list, for example, love that movie. 🙂
We had gluten free meals, that worked really fine on Norweigan. At the end of the flight we got this cute little lunchbox with two sandwiches, a youghurt and juice. 🙂
We checked in to the hotel, went out to have some mexican food and then we went straight to bed.
July 1 – LAS VEGAS
The short and intense mini adventure “The Anderssons in Vegas” starts. Jiiiihaaaaaa 🙂
Woke up at 07.30, wow, that is really great, since I normally have the worst jetlags on earth. Well, not today. We had the breakfast buffé at our hotel and then we took off to the airport…again. The plane for Las Vegas left at 13.00 and it only took 45 minutes to get there. Talk about quick (as we say in Sweden). In Vegas the heat IS on. Around 40 degrees C. It’s hot, hot, hot. We checked out the airport since we’ve never been there before, we have only been to Vegas once before and that trip was made by car. One armed bandits (hahahaha super Swenglish) all over the place.
We took a cab and went to the strip, to Caesars palace to be exact. And to make a long story short, we did not receive the car we came for today. Buhu!! Some trouble still with the AC so we have to spend the night in Vegas, so we checked in at Caesars palace. The first room we got was used so we had to go back to the front desk to get a new room, which resulted in an upgrade for us. A really nice and big room.
So here we are, in the room. No new clothes for tomorrow, no make up stuff with me, no deodorant (OMG), no nothing. The plan now is to go down and get a drink and then tuck ourselves into bed. It is 20.40 and we are really, really tired…actually Monsieur is already asleep so I have to wake him up so we can go downstairs and have that drink…unless I am too tired too…
