Airports are always hectic, remembering to take off all jewelry and shoes, not forgetting to grab all of your belongings. I have done a fair amount international travel, so you would think the airport security would be second nature by now--it's not…As soon as I went through security, I hurried to grab all (or so I thought) of my stuff--as soon as I start putting on my shoe, I realized I am missing something crucial to international travel…that's right, my passport! I raced back to the counter, with one shoe half on, the other back with my mom, where I had put it down, and there it was, whew! Crisis averted. After that it was fairly smooth sailing, or flying should I say.
DFW -> LAX
Now LAX airport is most definitely not the best airport ever, but that is a story for another post…While we were in the LAX airport, we met a girl named Sophie. She was a wonderful young lady, who was from Australia, she was studying in Pennsylvania and returning home after her semester had ended. She gave us a few good tips to go by while we were in Sydney, and the whole time we were chatting I was hoping to remember all of her pointers after an extremely long flight.
After what seemed like forever, we finally boarded the plan to Sydney.
(My ticket to an adventure of a lifetime)
(Tracking the flight can also helped to pass the time!)
We flew over Sydney right when the sun was coming up, so it was even more beautiful of a sight than I could have imagined. I was ready to start my journey down under!
(The view from my window as we began to land, sorry for the glare…)
More about the adventures to come, stay tuned!
