The Journey Begins

OKAY! Since my last post, I’ve gotten a lot done! 🙂

All my flights are paid for, I’ve pre-booked accommodation in ten different countries up until January 9th, and my single 55-liter travel backpack is pretty much ready to go.

In just a few hours, I’ll be heading to Dallas Lovefield to finally embark on this adventure that I’ve been telling everyone about for the last couple months.

AHHHH, I'm finally leaving!!!
I can’t believe this is ACTUALLY happening. 😀

…it still doesn’t feel real yet. 😯

 

So where am I headed to first?

Hong Kong! Here’s how I’m getting there:

My mom and I will be leaving from Dallas Lovefield today, Nov 6th, at 6:35pm on Virgin America, arriving in San Francisco at 8:20pm. A mere 3hrs and 45 min.

Next is the real kicker… we’ll be leaving San Francisco at 12:05 am on Singapore Airlines, arriving in Hong Kong at 6:55am on Nov 8th. A joyful, fun-filled… 15 hours.

It's okay. I'm gonna get through this!
Such a long flight… but it’s okay… I’m gonna get through this!

I’ll soon be exploring the exciting city of Hong Kong, so it’s all going to be worth it! 😮

After a couple days visiting the “Pearl of the Orient”, I’ll be taking a couple more flights to get to my mom’s home country, Brunei.

Our Singapore Airlines flight leaves Hong Kong on Nov 10th at 6:50pm on a 4 hour flight to Singapore, arriving at 10:50pm.

After that, we have an overnight layover in Singapore’s Changi International airport, and we leave the next morning at 8:40am on Nov 11th, on a Royal Brunei airlines flight which lands in the capital of Brunei, Bandar Seri Begawan, two hours later at 10:50am. I’ll be so glad to have a short plane ride after all the previous flights! 😛

Once I get to Brunei, I’ll be staying with family over there most of the time, so I’m hoping to make my next (actually interesting) blog post about when I’m there.

I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you! 😀

See y’all on the other side of the world!
