The first post is just a quick entry about our journey to the other side of the world. The first leg of our flight (Sept. 6 and 7, 2013) was a 10 hour flight from Seattle to Tokyo and had a small layover there. Whenever we travel through multiple time zones, we try to readjust right away to our new destination's schedule. So we stayed awake during our layover and walked around the Narita International Airport and used their free wifi.

The next leg of our flight was Tokyo to Bangkok which was about 6.5 hours. We arrived at the Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok at about 11 p.m., at this point I was so disoriented after a 20 hour travel day, I didn't know what was up or down. But so excited that we finally made it to Thailand and that our trip was about to begin!
We went through customs and immigration and then found a sign for the car to our hotel. There are a lot hotels surrounding the Bangkok airport (it's one of the busiest airports in Asia) so finding somewhere to sleep close to the hotel (we were going to be on a flight the next morning) was no problem. Our hotel was about a 10 minute drive from the airport, after a quick check in at the hotel, we emailed our parents to let them know we had safely arrived, we passed out!
After a great sleep, we woke up, grabbed breakfast and were back to the airport! Our trip was about to fully being, next stop - Siem Reap, Cambodia!
