We made it! After 12+ hrs of traveling (with Gwen!), we arrived at our first Cali destination. Summerland. It’s 5 miles south of Santa Barbara.
We flew Virgin American and for Gwen’s first flight, it was a dream experience. No security line, the service was great, the seats were roomy and comfy, and the other passengers (many young kids included) were all pleasant to be around.
The worst part of the day was landing at LAX and dealing with traffic getting to our renal car and traffic getting out of LA.
Gwen was amazing though. She didn’t cry once. She napped decently and ate well. She did scream a few times -loudly – during the shuttle ride to the rental car. But who can blame her.
