October 24, 2016 – the day of our exodus from America. Two bon voyage parties and tons of goodbyes later (you’d think we were leaving forever), we headed to San Francisco International Airport for our 1am flight to Bangkok.
First leg of the flight was about 13 hours. Slept for the first 5-6 hours, missed the first in-flight meal, and watched a couple movies – Finding Dory and X-Men Apocalypse (horrible). Breakfast options were sausage and eggs or porridge with pork. This would be the only time I ever choose porridge (because fuck eggs). Took a few bites and devoured the roll and some tea.
We had a couple hour layover in Taiwan where we ate some dumplings and stretched our aching legs.
The flight from Taiwan to Bangkok was just under 4 hours and felt like a breeze (mostly because we had exit row seats and leg room for days). We landed at our destination around 11am, waited in the customs line for about 45 minutes, and took a taxi to our hotel.
Our almost 24 hour trek was over and we were exhausted. BUT WE MADE IT!!!
