I’m excited, but I’m also afraid… mostly because I’ve been a bad luck magnet this year and I’m going on a plane over the ocean.
My friend in Shanghai may be meeting me at the airport, so that will be nice, and he’s going to try getting me a phone, one less thing for me to worry about.
I think the thing I’m mostly apprehensive about is leaving my baby for 2 weeks. That will be the hardest thing for me, I don’t think I will be able to sleep without her.
Other than that, I’ve got everything packed up again, always feeling like I forgot something. Bought my VPN, packed clothes, cameras, essentials, etc. I think I’m good. But you know how it is when you travel somewhere or try to pack for something, it always feels like you’re forgetting something.
The flight is going to be interesting for me anyways, because I’m a smoker. The airline I’m going on doesn’t allow e-cigarettes, so that’s out of the question. But it’s ok. I’m going to try to sleep as much as I can on the flight anyways, because I really don’t want jetlag!
I should probably be going to bed right now, I have to get up early and make sure I have everything. Then around 8:30 I’m going to try to be at the airport for check-in. I’m not too worried about getting through security, but I guess better to be early and be safe about not missing my flight right? I figure Cou got through LA security pretty fast, Phoenix should be easy compared to that. I’m going to milk any time I have left with my kids as much as possible.
I’ll try to update with vlogs, but Cou hasn’t had luck with internets in China, so I’m not going to be too anal about it, just in case. If anything we’ll have a ton of videos up when we get back.
