The Flight Itself
Friday July 22nd, 2016
I flew from Greenville, South Carolina to Atlanta, Georgia to Tokyo, Japan, and finally to Taipei, Taiwan. The flight was long, and I ended up having to stay up the day before, I had to leave at 3:00am from my house in Spartanburg to get to the airport. My flight was at 5:30am from Greenville, South Carolina. I arrived in Atlanta at 6:30am. Unfortunately, I had about a 6 hour layover in Atlanta, so I grabbed some Chickfila breakfast, and tried sleeping a little bit. Every 5 minutes or so, I had my eyes open to make sure nobody was going to steal my baggage. Also, Pokemon Go in the airport is lit. Pokestops everywhere, so I just sat in one spot and spun the Pokestop every 5 minutes or so to rake up some items.
Being in the airport and flying was about 23 hours total. I was practically sleep deprived because of the time zone changes and everything! I actually ended up being in business class with the 13 hour flight from Atlanta to Tokyo so it was very nice to have a chair that can lay all the way down. I was quite impressed with my seat arrangement, I have never ever in my life been in business class! I totally felt like an elite. And the food was much much better in business class. ;) I also found out I can constantly order alcoholic drinks… however I was way too exhausted to drink more than one.
I ended up watching Batman v. Superman and the Pixels movie on the flight. When I arrived in Tokyo, it was about 3:00pm. I tried contacting my mother in the US to tell her I arrived in Tokyo, but for some odd reason my phone decided to fail on me. My phone would not connect to the airport Wifi at all. I tried getting help from the customer service lady, but she couldn’t figure it out either. So as I arrived to my gate, I got on my computer, and I was able to access the airport Wifi so I messaged my mother and some other relatives on Facebook. I was so relieved. Apparently there is an hour difference in Tokyo and Taiwan, so when I flew from Tokyo to Taiwan, I was supposed to get there at 7:30pm but I ended up getting there at 6:30pm.
All in all, the flight was pretty steady. I slept half of the way, ate food, and watched some movies. I’m just glad I was able to safely travel to my destinations!
