San Antonio to Taipei

Where to begin.

Too nervous and excited to sleep, only got about 2 hours before I had to get up at 4:30am to leave to the airport by 5.

Flight #1: San Antonio to Phoenix

Flight #2: Phoenix to Los Angeles

Flight #3: Los Angeles to Narita

Flight #4: Narita to Taipei

That’s how many times I had to change planes and run through airport terminals so that I wouldn’t miss any part of my flights.

Total travel time: 24.5hrs, not counting the time before my 1st flight nor the time after I landed in Taipei and had to wait for my backpack.

Now for the pretty (and depressing).

By the time I arrived at the airport in Taiwan I’d been out and about for over 26 hours and still had another hour and a half to go until I reached my hostel. I took a bus from the airport to the main train station in the center of the city and then walked a few blocks until I reached my hostel.

In the end I stayed up a total of 32 hours with a short half hour nap on the last flight and a pretend nap at the end of the flight from LA to Japan.
