My bags are packed, I’m all checked-in, and currently waiting to board my flight. Yes, three checked bags… no shame here. I packed food I knew I wouldn’t be able to get, clothing to hold me over until my home goods arrive, and things I didn’t want to get lost or broken. Thankful all of my bags were under 50 pounds! 🙌🏼 I also made sure to call United three days ago to make sure I had gluten free meals. I did not want my Virgin Australia fiasco (they didn’t have my requested meals on my flights to/from Australia) to be repeated.
It’ll take three flights and roughly 24 hours to get to Vietnam. I’ll try and update my blog in the next few days (depending on when I get Internet) and let everyone know that I’ve made it.
