First Leg of the Trip Complete with a Minor Hiccup 🙄

Our First Road Bump Came on Day 1

Who ever said traveling was easy, or always worked out exactly as you had planned? Nobody. Because if you're traveling for any length of time you will experience travel delays, unexpected expenses, or other things you hadn't planned for. And our first hiccup happened on the very first day of our trip lol. But no worries, we're in good spirits and have completed the first leg of our tip which was a short 1 1/2 hour flight to LAX (Los Angeles).

We woke up at 5am this morning to get a quick shower, a cup of coffee, and wait for our Lyft driver to pick us up. I happened to notice an alert on my phone letting us know that our flight had been delayed and that we would miss our connecting flight to China. I thought, oh boy, this is starting way too early! We got on our computers and found another flight that would get us into LAX at 7:30pm, as well as a flight to get us to Shanghai departing at 1am.

So here we are... waiting in Los Angeles for our early morning flight... parked up at a Starbucks writing a blog and watching the planes come and go out the window. So I thought I would share with you guys our first day so far. We have a long night ahead of us. In roughly 16 hours we'll land in Shanghai which will truly begin our SouthEast Asia travels!

You guys look super-excited! Have a great trip! So, is it just China or would you be visiting some other countries as well?

Thanks @neerajmotivation! We're actually visiting a total of 9 countries throughout SouthEast Asia. This is the first and we'll be heading out to Vietnam tomorrow night. :)

Thanks @brandonfrye for the upvote! Wow! You guys will be visiting 9 countries! That's quite a number and, I am sure, it's going to be one amazing experience! Best wishes!

16 hours.
Nooot short.
Go for it.

Yeah, about 3 more hours before we board and then a 3-hour flight. Long night ahead but hopefully we can get some sleep on the flight. It'll be strange waking up in Shanghai. :)

Early to bed, early to rise. I hope you're having fun right now ;)

We're going to try and get some sleep on this flight. It'll be 6am in China when we get there. Gotta be ready to explore! :)

Have fun! I hope the long flight overseas isn’t too bad. Prepare for jet lag.

Thanks, I'm sure we'll be feeling it pretty strong tomorrow morning. 😜

I hope you have a good trip.

Thanks @kohand! :)

Enjoy your trip, and be sure to have fun!

Thank you @audreybits, should be a blast. :)

Have a great trip. A few beers will make the 16 hour flight emjoyable.

Oh I've got something for that LOL 😴


Very cool. I have never heard of this. Do a post review on it as that could be liquid travel gold.

Me too. I never heart about something like this. I´m sorry but I´m German from Bavaria. I prefer beer. ;-)

Good luck Brandon! Have a long fun flight to Shanghai! It wouldn't be a cool adventure without a few hiccups along the way right? lol :)
