The Longest Day

View Round the World on shoestring's travel map.

Our stay in Japan was all too short, and we've already moved on, to the United States. Our flight from Tokyo left at 7.15pm on Monday but, because we crossed the International Date Line, we arrived in Los Angeles before we left, at 1pm. For us, Monday lasted 40 hours. So our body clocks are completely confused - we're not sure if we're coming, going, leaving in half an hour or due to arrive in two.

It's not all bad - this is the view from our hostel on Hermosa Beach:

Well it's not all that bad after all then! 40hrs dear god that's awful. I have to say looking at the piccy above it reminds me somewhat of Brighton pier or Littlehampton but i don't see a crazy mouse, although i know completely in different continents. You guys have suddenly moved about rather quickly. Soon you'll be in Vegas baby, excellent!!! Hope you're still having fun, I'm sure you are. Xxx

Pleased you both arrived safely and having a break before moving on. The weather looks great and the beach inviting. I hope you aren’t being kept awake by the noise at the night club downstairs. However, if you can’t beat them join them!
Love you and miss you loads Mum xxxxxxxxxxx
