It’s weird to think I lost a day of my life. What if something good was going to happen that day??? Do I get that same day back when I fly home or is it considered a new day? These are the sorts of things you start to think about when you’ve been sitting in an airplane for 14.5 hours.
14.5 hours from LAX to Sydney. I guess I didn’t realize how long this flight actually was. The time zones confused my understanding. I left LAX at midnight my time, so all I wanted to do was sleep. I learned where the term ‘you snooze you loose’ comes from. It stems from if you sleep at the beginning of the flight, you lose your opportunity for dinner. Luckily they had some things left over so I was able to have a little something when I woke. Nothing like beef tenderloin at 6am 🙂
I woke up thinking I must have slept 10 hours, probably only 4 to go. Nope, 7 hours to go….Before I left I did an intense cardio and strength workout, which has helped with the consecutive sitting. Despite that, it’s inevitable to not get a sore derrière and stiff neck. That said, I managed to keep myself entertained.
