Mom just dropped me off at the slc airport & it's the greatest feeling being here again knowing I'm about to embark on another freaking rad adventure! I got to security & gave the dude my boarding pass, he says, "how old are you?" I say "20" he says "can I see an ID" as he proceeds to hold my ID up to my face & make sure I'm really me... like umm okay I do not look that young mister!! Lol. Anyway, I got to my gate in about two seconds to find out I am the first one here with about two hours to spare. Better safe than sorry right? Also, I've always found it weird that they give complimentary peanuts on airplanes. Like, so many people are allergic to peanuts it's just weird ya know? Maybe that's why they also have cookies & pretzels as an option now too. Well there's your thought of the day! You're welcome.
Okay, I am now in Portland! I've always wanted to go to Portland. I think I need to come back tho cuz I can't seem to get my "Portland fix" through the airport windows. Lol;) traveling alone isn't too bad, actually it's not bad at all! I'm kinda enjoying this time... so far. I'll report back after my 11+ hour flight to Tokyo!
Psych! I am no longer alone. I just met up with some of my team here at pdx *holla* they are rad & I am pumped! A little jealous cuz while I was here at the airport for 3 hours while they went to downtown Portland & got voodoo donuts, ugh. Whatever, I'm over it.
2 hours left on this 11 hour flight & I haven't slept a blink. *crying*
Finally got to Manila!! But we haven't left the airport cuz we are going on another flight to Cebu. I got a little bit of shut eye so that's good. When we got to Cebu we took a 3 hour drive crammed in a van to a ferry. Along the way we stopped to take pictures of the beautiful sunrise & stopped again to get some different sweet breads & warm rolls from the bakery. So yummy. It was a nice drive with AC & a view. When we finally got to batayan island we checked into our little huts (aka hotel) & ate lunch then spent the rest of the day swimming at the beach & exploring the island! We were all exhausted by the end of the day so we ate dinner at a random buffet with lukewarm food & then hit the hay at 6:30. Lol
Ps. It's so hot!!!!!!
