Longest Trip to the US ever!!! and what i have noticed so far.

It took me 36 hours of travel time to get home!

It is 5am here in the US and i'm not tired because its 9pm in NZ and 7pm in Australia!

My travel path:
Lismore to Ballina to Sydney to Auckland to LA to Phoenix to Indy to Plymouth, IN
In New Zealand time that is I:
Departed Wed 7:00am and Thurs @ 7:30pm arrived

I have been nonstop with people and activities in Australia so that is why i haven't been able to recap Australia and Hillsong yet, but i will hopefully do that in the next few days.

I slept, journaled, was taught how to make origami swans, talked, and watched 3 movies on the flights home.

Things that are weird:
  • I didn't realize that I continually tried to water down my accent to imitate wherever I was... I found myself doing that in the American airport and then realized i didn't have to because my accent didn't stand out anymore!
  • Forgot i bought my laptop in NZ and needed the US adapter!
  • I already had taco bell at 3am on the way home
  • People dress different and have shorter hair but the shirts and t-shirts might simply be that...
  • It's HOT compared to NZ and Australia! good hot.
  • Time is going too quick, i can't believe i am here.
Going to bed now.
