The best holiday I've ever had

The best holiday i've ever had took place over 3 weeks. I clearly remember leaving my house at 3am on the 28th of June 2005 and made my way to Dublin airport for a flight to Los Angeles. This was my longest holiday and I sure was looking forward to it, apart from the bus journey, although I knew I would miss good old Dundalk! The flight to Los Angeles was long-11 hours, but enjoyable. We flew with Virgin Airlines and were fed almost every 2 hours! And I must say the food was actually really nice. When we arrived in LAX airport I couldn't believe the heat, it nearly killed me! It seemed as glamorous as i thought it would be as limo's pulled up every few minutes at the airport. But as we made our journey through the city to get to were we were staying I nearly cried at the sight of some of the places as there were a lot of homeless on the streets. It sure was no Beverley Hills! Finally we arrived at our hotel and who did I meet at breakfast the next morning only one of the boys in my class at school and about 20 other people from Dundalk!! I knew they were going as I heard the week before but it felt surreal as we were so far away from Dundalk! While we were in LA, we saw Beverley Hills, went to Hollywood (where we saw Magic Johnson and rapper Omarion), Universal Studios (what a brilliant place!) and Disneyland. We also drove down Sunset Boulevard! Our next stop was the Grand Canyon, which was the most spectacular view in the world. From there, we flew on a 20 seater plane over the canyon to Las Vegas. There's not much to do during the day as the heat is unbelievable but we did venture out to the pool a few times! Nightime is amazing though. We went to watch a show and saw the amazing hotels/casinos and also saw the dancing fountains. Next we made our way to San Francisco. This was my least favourite place and it was quite cold so I had to buy a coat! There wasn't an awful lot to do apart from taking pictures of the Golden Gate...
