Did you see The Layovers in Los Angeles?

 

Watch The Layovers with Johnny Jet and Lee AbbamonteI loved seeing my travel friends, Lee Abbamonte and Johnny Jet, in the first episode of a new travel web series, The Layovers, for Allianz Global Assistance. The premier episode is about what to do for a short or overnight layover in Los Angeles, California.

Do you want to fly in a helicopter over Los Angeles? We flew with Robin Petgrave from Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum! The museum and its programs are “a living classroom in South Los Angeles bringing aviation history to life and empowering the dreams of youth to take flight.” Have you always wanted to be a pilot?
