This morning, Malcolm and I, spent much needed time together. It was a romantically charged session of researching transport, LAX hotels and surrounding attractions. Unfortunately by 6am, the sun had already started to rise and it was too bright for candles. We have decided to head straight towards LAX after the cruise and get a room at one of the surrounding hotels. From there we can play it by ear and perhaps find our way to Santa Monica or Venice Beach. We managed to acquire ourselves a room for $56.94 at the Travelodge. It is right on the route of the big blue bus #3 which goes to Santa Monica. One less thing to do. 15 days to go! Yay!!!!
