So here begins my attempt at keeping log of my travels...mostly for me to remember where I've been, what I've done etc etc.
I never journaled throughout my previous travels. Looking back, I wish I had so I could remember more. So here we go!....
Let's start with a really long first post to catch up....
Oct 1. Los Angeles International airport
I stayed over at Kevin's place the night before my flight. (Had a late night of moving stuff back to my parents and cleaning out my apartment...and last minute 2am pho....thank you Kevin!! )
So the day has finally arrived! I booked my ticket months ago via a Priceline glitch ($300 ticket,LAX to Thailand). Didn't feel real until this morning.
Excited but really sad to leave Kev, Steph and LA. I'm really happy in LA (for once), sad but necessary to leave and do this big trip.
Arrive at check in, apparently there's no ticket to my name for the first leg of my round about route to bangkok! Uh oh.... Thinking this might not happen after all....fast forward 15 minutes of searching, hurrah! Ticket found, boarding pass sorted. Me and my 45liter pack are off to the gate!
Lay over boston, rome, and arrive for my one week layover in Budapest!
Shared cab with James a fellow pice glitch grabber I met while in line to board plane to budapest.
After what felt like the longest day of my life....and so much flying... the long awaited reunion....met Mike and his friend Aimee at the hostel!! 3 years since I've last seen him. So good to see him again!!
**what I learned at rome airport- chino flavor pelligrino is cherry flavor
